    I’m new to using DAW’s and virtual instruments so find this website great for trying out various sounds to begin exploring. However, whenever I try to play a downloaded instrument in ableton via Kontakt player 6, I get a non-player instrument timeout notification. How do I navigate this without having to unnecessarily spend money on software I’m not sure I want or need?

    Many thanks,

    You don’t get around it, it is a limitation of the Kontakt Player which is essentially a demo to work out whether you should spend money on software you are not sure if you want or need.

    Having said that you can purchase some commercial libraries that don’t suffer the timeout. They will probably say they are fully compatible with Kontakt Player.


    Neyre, you might want to look out for the free Decent Sampler Plugin. There are already several sampler instruments here on pianobook adapted for DS.
