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

NI Kontakt 5

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.
