Hi all –
Downloaded a few new sounds from the Pianobook community today and am running into an error loading them in Kontakt. I’m using quickload as I have used in the past but am running into an error that reads “Your version of Kontakt is too old to load this file. Please update to the latest version.” As far as I know, I have the newest version of Kontakt 5 (and there is no update available in Native Access) – do these samples require Kontakt 6?
Thanks so much and hope everyone is staying safe with the pandemic!17 April 2020 at 8:06 pm #2065Darren PrescottParticipant
Yes, they would need Kontakt 6 unfortunately.17 April 2020 at 10:57 pm #2069Marco IannelloParticipant
Which ones you getting that message for, specifically?18 April 2020 at 2:22 am #2074jackrrobertsParticipant
Specifically, “Rain Catcher” and “The King’s Upright”. I haven’t yet tested the other recently uploaded samples on the site but am assuming a fair amount of them would give me this issue if I didn’t have Kontakt 6.18 April 2020 at 2:07 pm #2078Bob EllisParticipant
This is going to be a real pain going forward for pre-Kontakt 6 users. Darren and I converted St.Helens Cantores to Kontakt 5.8 but I will only do this if I like a particular sample set. Maybe if others do the same we might get the majority converted.22 May 2020 at 8:58 am #2208PerParticipant
Despite having the very latest version of Kontakt (v 6.2.2.051) I get:
“Your version of Kontakt is too old to load this file.
Please update to the latest version.”
Anybody else having the same problem?25 May 2020 at 3:18 pm #2218Christopher NeversParticipant
Yes, I’m having these same issues with Kontakt v6.*, I’m installing the latest patch now with Native Access, but don’t have much hope it’ll solve the issue now25 May 2020 at 6:42 pm #2219facundo gonzalezParticipant
hi, i have the same issue with Kontakt 6 demo. I couldn’t download anything because my Kontakt version is too old.Do someone know how to solve it?26 May 2020 at 11:20 pm #2221PerParticipant
I just tested reinstalling Kontakt 6.2.2.051 and that solved the problem!29 May 2020 at 12:28 am #2229BeckwrecksoundsParticipant
I am hoping there will be an easy way to convert from Kontakt 6 to 5… I just got a new computer (running Catalina) and bought Kontakt in hopes to learn and contribute to this site but I didn’t realize Kontakt 6 wasn’t backward compatible! Is there a way to get Kontakt 5 working on Catalina with a Kontakt 6 license?9 June 2020 at 2:49 pm #2272
Just this minute spent $99 upgrading from 5 to 6. Still getting the above problem. I’ll let all the updates for all the instruments (not just Kontakt) finish doing their thing and look for any updates, then try again.9 June 2020 at 3:45 pm #2273
Still doesn’t work for me in Ableton Live Suite 10, but it *does* work as the standalone Kontakt 6 app. Neglected to say this is with my first download, the Hohner Guitaret.
Going to try deleting the Kontakt 6 app/vst/au and reinstalling…9 June 2020 at 4:15 pm #2274
Success in the end. I deleted all the instances of Kontakt 6 the finder told me about. Yet, weirdly, when I started Live and opened the vst I had previously saved to my favorites list (one of my color collections in Live), it would still start up. I removed the favorite and reinstalled Kontakt 6 a second time. Now it works.
I know this looks like I just forgot a particular instance of Kontakt, but truthfully I thought I’d caught ’em all. Very strange of Live to be able to launch a favorite I’d supposedly deleted. Again, I suppose I must have overlooked something. But just in case, try deleting Kontakt from your favorites too.
As far as I’m aware the Collections in Live are just shortcuts to save you having to shuffle about in the menus so much, but I don’t know why the behaviour I saw was occurring. NI themselves are pretty weird anyways so who can say? Good luck everyone.
