Yes, we offer a 30% discount to all students and educators! Simply email a copy of your student ID or acceptance letter to email@example.com with the subject title 'EDU Discount', and we will send you a unique discount code. This discount may be used on any product, but not used in addition to any current deals or discounts included on our products. On Infinity Bundle 10% saving can be claimed but you will have to email us and we will send you a custom order.

You are not allowed to transfer your license or resell the library to another user. Once you have downloaded your product, you will find a licensing agreement contained within the library folder where you can read in more detail about the restrictions of use and sharing.
NKS (Kontakt Player) Instruments
To transfer your license to someone else you must do it via Native Instruments.
To use any library produced by Sonixinema, you will need to have the FULL version of Kontakt 5 or above. The version number is dependant on the individual products, so we have included this on each main product page. Please ensure that you check this information before buying from us, as we are unable to offer refunds on digital downloads.
Please follow the instructions that you can download via unique download link that was sent to you in the Order Confirmation email.
Non NKS instrument
You will receive a download link in you Order Confirmation email. Once you have downloaded your product, unzip and move it where you keep your other libraries. Load up the required version of Kontakt and click the 'Files' tab which is located on the top left side of Kontakt's interface. From here you can navigate to where you have stored your library. You can either double click, or drag the NKI file into Kontakt. You can also drag an NKI directly from a folder on your computer if this is easier.
If you have run out of download attempts, reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will reset your donwload counter.
You are either opening a non-NKS instrument in a free Kontakt Player, or haven't activated your NKS instrument in the Native Access.
Some instruments we release can only be used with a Full version of Kontakt. Those instruments do not require a serial number and as long as it is the FULL version of Kontakt (NOT PLAYER), you will be able to use the instrument.
For NKS instruments, please make sure you find your Order Confirmation email and click on the Download link which will take you to your serial and instructions how to authorise your new instrument in Native Access.
Unfortunately, developers have to pay a large licensing fee to include this feature within their libraries. It is hard for Boutique developers like us to afford this, and therefore some libraries that we release are only available for the full version of Kontakt, and not the free Kontakt player.
Yes. If you're serious about writing music and make noise for a living, running your machines as efficiently as possible is crucial. Slow loading times of sample libraries is not uncommon thing, but you should have a good understanding of your system before you head off changing everything that you think might be the cause.
Without digging deep into your system build and quality, one thing you can make sure you are doing, is Batch Re-saving each new instrument as and when you have bought it and installed it. It's a function that runs each nki, checks all the samples and saves it. In a lot of cases this alone will speed your loading times. After you changed the location of your instrument, this should be repeated.
Please make sure you understand what you are doing. For example consider the version of your Kontakt. Say your purchased instrument says min. requirement is full version of Kontakt version 5.7.0. If you run 5.8.1, the min. version which will open your re-saved library will now be 5.8.1.
Another common mistake is to batch re-save all instruments in your dive at once. Don't do that. Once you fucked your entire collection of instruments, digging out terabytes of data and restoring is a thing that nobody enjoys doing :)
Professionally speaking, you should have a dedicated storage just for your libraries. The "read" speed of your drives has a tremendous importance here. Slow spinning drives should not even be considered i.e. 5400rpm. Not so long ago 7200rpm drives used to be most accessible and usable. Now that larger Solid State Drives became much more affordable, most professional systems will have sample libraries running off them. External multi-docks are a very common sight. But however fast your drive might be, make sure you connection can provide and support it. SSD via USB2 is an extreme example but you get the point?
To remove a Kontakt Library from you Mac computer, follow the steps below:
Close Native Access
Navigate to the main library folder you are looking to uninstall, and delete this entire folder. Default location: /Users/Shared/Library Name
Now open Finder and head over to the 'Hidden' Library folder. The path is Macintosh HD > Library > Preferences. If you are having difficulty finding this 'Hidden' Library folder you have two routes! A. Go to Finder’s top menu, and press Option on your keyboard, you will see Library appear in the menu. B. In Finder's top menu, choose Go > Go to Folder. In the dialogue box, type: ~/Library and Click Go.
Locate a file: com.native-instruments.LIBRARY-NAME.plist
Open Native Access to confirm you have successfully removed your instrument
Generally if any issues such as that you must consult with Native Instruments support as they are the only ones that have access to the system. But here's what you can try whilst you wait for a reply to your support ticket.
Log out from Native Access - click on the "head-and-shoulder" logo in the upper right corner. Click Log Out.
Quit Native Access
Head over to Mac: /Library/Application Support/Native Instruments/Service Center/ Windows: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Native Instruments\Service Center

Since libraries and sample packs are downloadable and non-returnable we can't offer refunds. This is common among all sample companies selling Kontakt libraries and sample packs. However, we are always keen to resolve any issues you might have, so please do not hesitate to contact us via contact form.
Examples of resolutions:
If proof can be generated that the instrument has not been downloaded we can offer a store credit or a full refund. On our end we must see that download link has not been used.
With NKS Instruments which require a Serial Number, once the Serial Number has been delivered, it is assumed that it has been used, therefore it is only possible to received a partial refund, minus the license cost that is associated with Native Instruments deployment of the library on Native Access.
If you have any questions, please reach out to us via email@example.com - we are always here to assist you.
