More need to know

The software coding has taken many months and involved a total of 3500 lines of code. We hope you respect the effort put into this and not share your purchase on warez sites and/ or with colleague producers and friends.
This instrument was developed in version 5.6. In case you intend to SAVE the instrument to a new filename or override the original .NKI, you will loose the preset (snapshots) data. This is as per default Kontakt behavior. Make sure you keep the original .NKI in case you want o keep using the snapshot presets.
