Sibelius 7.1 Kontakt 5 Update

Posted: December 20, 2011


Kontakt 5 Autoloading

With the release of Sibelius 7.1 on Monday, autoloading functionality has been restored for Kontakt 5. The Kontakt 5 and Retro Machines MK2 sound set packages and documentation have been updated as well, and now include full support for automatic loading in Sibelius 7.1 and higher.

This is a free update for all current users of the Kontakt 5 and/or Retro Machines MK2 sound sets. Users will receive more information by email within 24 hours.

As a reminder for those of you who have held off to see if autoloading would be back for Kontakt 5, the Retro Machines MK2 sound set is currently free with purchase of the Kontakt 5 sound set. This offer will end January 1, 2012 so head over to the Native Instruments page and save a few $$! If you're using the Kontakt 4 sound set, don't forget to check your eligibility for reduced upgrade pricing.

General Notices

Order and Support Delays

Over the past several weeks orders and support requests have been severely delayed. If you've written in and not yet received a response, please know that you are not being ignored and responses are being sent as quickly as possible.

Orders are currently taking up to 36 hours to process, and should be back on track in the next several days. Thanks for your patience.

Website Availability

The Sound Set Project website will be offline for an as of yet undetermined period of time beginning no sooner than December 30. While it's hoped to keep downtime to a minimum, it's not possible to say with any certainty how long it will be. During this time the entire site, including sound set downloads, will be unavailable. Users are encouraged to download a fresh copy of their sound sets as a precaution in case something goes wrong in their setup while the site is down.
