    It would be sensible if this was included in the instructions when you buy a 'non-player library'.
    Would also be nice if it were clearer that these products will not show in your list of instruments and you have to manually navigate your forest of files to load them...

    ^ Agreed. A bit of a pain to load.

    ^ +1. Quite a poor show.

    Definitely a pain to load. I've found that placing the folder into the 'quickload browser' practically solves this problem as it becomes available on the main page.

    Oh, oh, oh... after downloading all the free libraries, you indeed arrive here where

    it is told that they won't work when you don't have the full Kontakt indeed 

    Why oh why?

    It reminds me that I had bought two apps a month ago, which, also afterwards, didn't seem to work in

    only the K-player. That was sooo disappointing. And painful (inclusive for the developer, a nice guy) to get my money back.

    There is a very irritating compatibility-problem between al lot of libraries and apps and Kontakt/Kontakt Player. Never experienced that in other players or whatever hosts.

    I suppose this is not a way to sell more to irritated costumers who finally give up and

    by the full Kontakt to be saved from all the fuss?

    If not; why? It's just a question of programming and coordination no? 

    This time Spitfire, before Sound Hub (Sound Dust).

    And all sounded great...

    :(

    THIS IS SO USER UNFRIENDLY. STILL HAVE'NT GOT IT WORKING. DONE EVERYTHING AS INSTRUCTED AND EVEN BOUGHT HD VERSION. ITS GOOD THAT THE MARKETING DEPT OF SPITFIRE DOSE'NT ADVERTISE THIS AS PLUG-IN AND PLAY BECAUSE IT IS THE TOTAL OPPOSITE.....CANT PLUG-IN OR PLAY. HEY!.. WHY DONT THEY MAKE ANOTHER CUMBERSUM VIDEO ABOUT HOW 'NOT' TO USE SPITFIRE? THAT WOULD BE MORE REALISTIC AND HELPFUL.

    I wonder how much it would cost Spitfire to use NIs authorisation... I'm assuming that is the reason they don't do it. Maybe it's because the interfaces are not complaint with Complete Kontrol though, who knows. Not what you expect from a big name publisher of high end librairies though, is it?

    Awful, very clunky and not impressed at all. Is this the best a major publisher can do? I think I shall start looking at alternative products.

    Wow. Permanently lost a potential spitfire customer.  Thank goodness I only wasted $29 to find out.  I will be sure to warn off everyone I know.

    So you just lost another spitfire customer.   I ordered and installed the BBC Symphony Orchestra Discover edition to try it out.   Now I find out that I can't use it with the Kontakt Player edition!

    If you had been up-front about this, it wouldn't have been much of an issue.   Finding out this "gotcha" after the fact is unethical!   I don't purchase from unethical companies.   

    Are you offended by me calling you unethical?  Tough!  Deal with it.
