FAQHere are our most often asked questions with answers.
We want all customers to feel well informed and confident about making purchases with us.
For this reason, where possible, we have audio, video and/or downloadable product demos available. We encourage you to watch, listen and test any and everything! And if you still have any questions, just ask! We are happy to answer.
For these reasons, and due to the digital nature of the products, all purchases are final.
You can use the In Session Audio sounds royalty free in music you’re writing for a film, television, video game, pop hit, etc…
It’s a goal of ours to help customers make money with their music!
The Main Things to Know:
- Don’t share or resell the libraries. After all: they’re uniquely watermarked by our server to each customer, and you never know what someone will do with your stuff!
- Make sure you mix at least one other melodic instrument with our loops. I mean, c’mon: we’re licensing musical tools, not THE music.
Feel free to contact us if you need any further clarification.
The License Agreement for our sample libraries (Guitar Swell, World Percussion Creator, Drumatic Creator, Shimmer Shake Strike, Taiko Creator, Riff Generation: Outside In Edition, Riff Generation, Fluid Strike and Fluid Harmonics) can be viewed HERE.
The License Agreement for our loop libraries can be viewed HERE.
Guitar Swell, World Percussion Creator, Drumatic Creator, Taiko Creator, Riff Generation: Outside In Edition, Shimmer Shake Strike, Riff Generation, Fluid Harmonics and Fluid Strike will work with either Kontakt or the free edition of Kontakt known as “Kontakt Player”.
With the exception of the CHROMA collection (made only for Stylus RMX & REX formats), all loop libraries are offered in the following formats: Kontakt, Apple Loop, Acid Wav, REX, Stylus RMX and standard .wav.
The Kontakt format requires a full version of Kontakt 5.1 or higher.
If you have a version of Kontakt you can tell if it’s the “Player” version by looking at the top left corner of the interface.
Note that it is possible to have both on one computer.
Guitar Swell, Drumatic Creator, World Percussion Creator, Taiko Creator, Riff Generation: Outside In Edition, Shimmer Shake Strike 1 & 2, Riff Generation, Fluid Harmonics and Fluid Strike are the only In Session Audio libraries that require Native Instruments’ Native Access application for installation.
This video demonstrates all installation steps, as well as the solution for the most common issue.
Please follow the below guide for any other In Session Audio Kontakt library.
In this example we are using the Lowdown Groove Guitar library but the steps are the same for our other libraries.
There is no formal installation process to begin using the patches and loops in Kontakt.
Simply use Kontakt’s file browser tab to navigate to the Lowdown Groove Guitar – Kontakt folder (shown below). Click on any of the files ending in “.nki” to load a patch.
Alternatively, you can drag and drop any of the .nki files directly from the Lowdown Groove Guitar – Kontakt folder into Kontak’s main patch window.
Note: Kontakt’s “Add Library”, “Manage Libraries” and load from “Libraries” functions are not available options for Lowdown Groove Guitar or any of our other libraries. This functionality is reserved for locked “Powered-by-Kontakt” libraries only.
A link to the video manual is inside the zip file for your library (right next to the installation instructions).
You can also access the video manual as shown in the image below.
The following titles have video manuals: Guitar Swell, World Percussion Creator, Drumatic Creator, Taiko Creator, Shimmer Shake Strike and both versions of Riff Generation.
If you’ve successfully installed a Kontakt Player library but do not see it within Kontakt’s “Libraries” panel then you are likely using an outdated version of Kontakt.
Currently, our Guitar Swelland Riff Generation: Outside In Edition libraries require Kontakt 6 or Kontakt Player 6 (other libraries require various versions of Kontakt 5).
Click the “NI” logo in the top right corner of Kontakt to see the version you are using.
Download the current version from the Native Access installation application.
All In Session Audio Stylus RMX loops have ben pre-converted to the Stylus RMX format. There is no need to use RMX’s S.A.G.E. Converter.
To use the loops, place the loop library folder or demo loop folder into Stylus RMX’s User Libraries folder.
On Windows the folder path is: C:/ProgramData/Spectrasonics/SAGE/SAGE Libraries/User Libraries
Note: The ProgramData folder is normally a hidden file. To “Show Hidden Files” go to the Start Menu/Control Pane/Appearance and select Folder Options/View tab. Select the “Show Hidden Files and Folders” option and hit “Apply”.
On Mac, the folder path is:
Macintosh HD/Users/Your Username/Library/Application Support/Spectrasonics/SAGE/SAGE Libraries/User Libraries
Note: The Library on Lion 10.7 and up hidden. To access it, in the Finder go to the “Go” menu and hold down the Option (Alt) key; the Library folder will then appear as a choice.
