Native Instruments has updated Kontakt to version 5.7.3, bringing some improvements and fixes to the industry standard sampler for Windows and Mac.

The update allows noticeably faster startup times, particularly when many libraries are installed on slower (or remote) drives. It also addresses crash issues experienced with certain third-party libraries.

Additionally, Kontakt now fully supports Apple’s new file system (APFS), introduced in High Sierra, and addresses a few uncommon but troublesome bugs.

Version 5.7.3 of Kontakt is now available for download in Native Access.
