SYNTHETIC MATERIALS EXPANSIONS
These downloads contain samples and snapshots for Synthetic Materials for KONTAKT.
INSTALLATION - SAMPLES
Create a new User Samples folder at the same level as the instrument Samples folder and move the samples (WAV files) to that folder.
Default locations will be as follows:
Macintosh HD > Users > Shared > Synthetic Materials
C: > Users > Public > Documents > Synthetic Materials
So you should now see a “Samples” folder and a new “User Samples” folder below the “Synthetic Materials” folder.
If you prefer to save the samples in a different folder, simply update the snapshot by dragging and dropping the appropriate samples into the USER tab in Synthetic Materials from their new location and re-save the snapshot.
If you see a red indicator for any of the user sample zones, this means the sample could not be found. A full file path will be displayed in the status area which may help with debugging.
INSTALLATION - SNAPSHOTS
Snapshots (.nksn files) should be moved to the folder for user (not factory) snapshots. Default location will be as follows:
Macintosh HD > Users > [YOUR USER NAME] > Documents > Native Instruments > User Content > Synthetic Materials
C: > Users > [YOUR USER NAME] > My Documents > Native Instruments > User Content > Synthetic Materials
You should now be able to load the new snapshots from Synthetic Materials in KONTAKT.
You are free to use these samples and sequences (where applicable) on a royalty-free basis for commercial and non-commercial projects.
While the samples were designed to be used with Synthetic Materials, you are free to use them with other sample-based instruments on any platform.
You may NOT re-package the samples, sell and / or re-distribute them and claim them as your own work. However, you are free to share these samples in online communities, such as pianobook for example with the courtesy condition that you credit Waverley Instruments as the original source of the samples.
