I'm moving to new windows 8 desktop. Installing up to date software as well as streamlining system.
Thinking about moving to Halion Sonic 2 or Halion 5, following positive reviews including on this forum.
Has anyone tried loading Kontakt nki files into Halion (or Sonic)? Is it easy and works well? This would help me migrate some favourite sounds, maybe get back to one workstation...hooray.
Hi there, HALion Sonic 2 will NOT accept the loading of third party files, as it is meant to be an all in one workstation, so will only load its only file format. HALion 5 is what will allow you to load third party content and tweak to your hearts delight. HALion 5 does load nki files, however, not all of them. I believe it will not load any nki files created on versions of Kontakt later than 4 and it will not load nki files that are protected. Any nki files created from Kontakt 4 and below, which are not protected, will behave just fine.
Best of luck and have fun with HALion 5, it really is a brilliant piece of software that is bound to bring you much joy, fun and creativity to your projects.
