    Kontakt Player 3.35 upgrade

    Native Instruments sent an email notification of this free upgrade. I was wondering if anyone has tried it (under WinXP sp3). IIRC, it installs beside KP2 (not over it), but will read the existing libraries. Any issues? Any meaningful benefit vs. older version? Any screwup relating to a subsequent (or prior) install of the Aria upgrade?

    Thx, Ron

    Interesting. Both Symphobia and SamBrass have a recent update to Kontakt Player 2.2.5. This is the first I've heard of Kontakt Player 3.5. I checked out the NI website but am still not sure how it will affect my installations. I, too, will wait for braver souls to relate their update experiences.
    In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.

    It doesn't affect your installation.

    i can use both successfully. I'm very happy with 3.5, but didn't use it massively yet.

    3.5 is a full Kontakt, but if you don't register it, it will work in "player" mode.

    3.5 is fully 64bit compatible and optimized from a speed and performance point of view.

    3.5 seems (I didn't check it personally, but I know previous version had troubles) to be more compatible with complex programming of previous versions like K2 (first K3 was changing the effect of some internal controllers of the K2 programs, resulting in slightly different sound and expression)

    As a registered user of garritan libraries, you find a free 3.5 update available in you NI update site log-in.

    I went ahead and downloaded it...seems seamless, so it seems, not seamy at all. See me for more detail

    I haven't stress-tested it but it caused no stress or distress that would cause me to de-tress, so I won't diss it. Dis is a positive review.

    Loads libraries with a low load on CPU; fits Finale fine. Sonar? So far, Sonar, so good...so there!

    Isn't the American English language wonderful?! What is more remarkable is the fact that this man only completed the third grade.

    Just kidding, Mister Jim. (Actually, it was the fifth grade.)
