No library found

Last updated:

If you are getting this error message in Kontakt when trying to add a new library, you may have a Spitfire Audio product that does not support adding the library to Kontakt.

Many of our products are "Player" libraries, that means they will work in Kontakt Player and can be added as libraries.

However, there are also many products that we sell that will only work in the FULL version of Kontakt and cannot be added as libraries. These products will need to be loaded via the Kontakt files browser or alternatively you can add the library as a favourite to the Kontakt Quick Load window.

If you have any of our Player libraries you can qualify for a discount on the full version of Kontakt see HERE for more information.

    Hello, first I'd like to congratulate you on your fantastc products. My favorite one is my Alion One library that I generally use whenever I can. Now, coming to my question. I just bought and downloaded the Union chapel organ library, only to discover that I can't add it as library in Kontakt. I have other libraries that work the same way but I don't understand why you or the other library makers don't build it as a proper library. Is there extra costs involved towards NI perhaps?

    Hi Marc,

    Thanks for the question. Yes there is essentially a licensing fee that we pay to Native Instruments on the customer's behalf in order that the library can be used in the Kontakt Player and by extension added as a library.

    Hi!
    not necessarily a missing library but after install and verification with serial number the spitfire Albion tab is there in Kontakt 5 but when you click on browse nothing opens. Im guessing there is a folder misplaced... any thoughts?

    Yes, it certainly looks like a misplaced folder, if you look in your Spitfire Albion ONE Library folder, it should look a bit like this:

    where should all of that live? documents?

    Daniel, you should store it all on the fastest drive you can, ideally an external SSD but failing that a external 7200rpm mechanical drive. It'll even work on your system drive (it doesn't matter where, documents is fine) but that's not optimal because your system drive is busy doing other things.

    Hello wonderful Spitfire Audio people!
    Love your products! Just upgraded to Albion ONE and am in love!
    I purchased the soft piano instrument, and followed the instructions, but in Kontakt 5 when I click Add Library -> Spitfire Labs - Soft Piano -> Choose, it comes up "No library found". I can double click the .nki file and it opens in Kontakt 5, but not being able to add the library means I can't use it within Logic. Any suggestions?
    Cheers!

    Hi Michael, this is a non-Player Library, will only work in the FULL version of Kontakt and needs to be accessed via the "files" menu.

    Hi Ben, thanks for the reply. I had a chat with Sandy and he talked me through the Files menu. However, Soft Piano is now "Demo timeout" and that I have to activate Kontakt 5 to lift the restrictions. So do I need to purchase Kontakt 5 to use the piano? (My other Spitfire libraries are working fine in Kontakt 5 Player)

    Hi Michael, yes, you'll need the full version of Kontakt to use that library. You will be able to take advantage of the discount that Kontakt offer for people that own our player libraries, details here: https://www.native-instruments.com/en/products/komplete/samplers/kontakt-5/pricing/crossgrade-offer/
