I’m starting this post by saying that if Native Instruments or anyone that contributed to the Kontakt User Library wants me to take this down or remove any sounds, I am more than happy to oblige.
For those of you that don’t know, Kontakt is a sampler by Native Instruments. Simply put, you can record anything you want, put the audio into Kontakt, and then play it back like an instrument. If you’d like more information about Kontakt, you can visit the Native Instruments website here.
The reason I uploaded this content is because it was just a pain to download all of it. Technically, (and correct me if I’m wrong) Native Instruments doesn’t own the content for me to be infringing upon anyone’s rights. This content is available for free on the Native Instruments website. This content was made available for free by users that added it to the user library. It is owned solely by the users that published it. The act of adding content to the user library gave it the equivalent of a CC (NO BY) royalty-free, commercial use license. However, I am not a legal expert, so I will oblige any take down request if necessary.
Since 2015, the Kontakt User Library has been offline for reasons which are explained in this forum post. Fortunately, Native Instruments left the library online for people to download. This means, for me, that it was a stagnant grouping of music files that had become primed to join my library. I’m working on uploading some other tedious to download files. If I have them, you can find them on the downloads section of my website.
My re-uploaded version is not exactly the same as how you would receive the files if downloaded directly from the Native Instruments website. I’ve organized the files based on author and category list on the Native Instruments website. I also removed uploads that were just text files (excluding scripts). So here they are. I uploaded the entire Kontakt User Library to MediaFire. You can download it here.
