Where can I download previous Kontakt 7 versions?

The new update to 7.6.1 runs extremely poor with extreme CPU lag spike for some reason.

I don't want to wait months for an update to fix this...

Is there a way to download the previous versions?

    Ask support to provide you the download file for the version you want (the repository in their site stopped publishing them years ago, this is the way to do it)

    Hi @momos if you haven't already, you can downgrade using this download link here:

    Thanks. I already downloaded it from another thread.

    I also had the same CPU Spike lag problems with Komplete Kontrol 3.0

    After downgrading to 2.9.something everything runs butter smooth again.

    I don't know if it's already known that Kontrol 3.0 seems to make problems too...

    I use an Apple M1 Pro 10c with MacOS 14.0.

    Hi, kind of a new Kontakt user. I'm experiencing those issues and want to downgrade. I downloaded the the 7.6.0 Mac file. Do I have uninstall 7.6.1 before downgrading? If so, could someone please point me in the right direction as far as procedure? Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance


    I figured it out, I found the uninstall procedure in NI App. Got it downgraded to 7.6.0. Hopefully it fixes the CPU spikes.
