    Kontakt 2 to Kontakt 3 question

    My new upcoming DAW will have Komplete 5 installed, which comes with Kontakt 3. I have been using Kontakt 2 for the last several years. Will I need to install Kontakt 2 on my new DAW in order to open up projects correctly in Cubase, or will they automatically open up in Kontakt 3? I really hope the latter is the case.

    Thanks!

    All your older projects will open K2 and thats good because some settings may be different in K3.
    K1, K2 and K3 are individual full versions. Installing K3 leaves K2 untouched.
    while updating from e.g. K3.0 to K3.1 overwrites the older version
    and old projects will open in the newer version.
    However, if the instruments in your project work in K2, there is no advantage in K3
    except some editing features.

    I see no problem having K2 and K3 installed together.
    Stay with K2 in your older projects and use K3 for the new songs.

    Thanks Chris! Not what I was hoping, as I like having as few VSTi's as possible on my DAW. What I may do is open all my past projects and individually save the Kontakt 2 multis. I should be able to then open those multis in K3, right?

    Right. Will they also work in K3? Maybe. I'd keep K2, if I was you.
