If your KONTAKT PLAYER Instrument unexpectedly switches to DEMO Mode, you may have unintentionally activated a feature which is only available in the full version of KONTAKT.
This usually happens if:
- You load a sample from the File Tab in KONTAKT 5 PLAYER's Browser (.wav, .aif, .rex, .rx2, etc. files). To load your own samples into KONTAKT you must have the full version rather than the free KONTAKT 5 PLAYER.
- You load any KONTAKT Preset-Instruments (.nki/.nkm/.nkb files) from the File Tab in KONTAKT 5 PLAYER's Browser which requires the full version of KONTAKT to work.
KONTAKT 5 PLAYER-compatible Libraries must be activated in the Service Center with a twenty-five digit serial number, otherwise they likely require the full version of KONTAKT.
Note: please check this comparison chart for more details on the available features of the free player compared to the full version of KONTAKT.
