Native Instruments Kontakt 7 v7.4.1 PORTABLE Windows

For 20 years, KONTAKT has been the backbone of countless film scores and pop hits, as well as thousands of incredible instruments from NI and your favorite NKS developers alike. Now, with a new HiDPI browsing experience, an overhauled Factory Library, new creative effects, and under-the-hood audio improvements, the next evolution is nearly here.
A new chapter for the world’s favorite sampler

KONTAKT continues to power the biggest selection of sampled instruments available.
Search, filter, and preview sounds from across your collection via a new HiDPI browser.
A revamped HiDPI Factory Library features new instruments from Orchestral Tools, rare analog synths, and much more.
Build your own instruments with powerful editing and building tools, plus the Creator Tools companion app.

Additional functionality:

Activation of protected libraries is not required, the ability to register (add to bookmarks) in batch mode.

Ability to edit patches of protected libraries.

Possibility of resaving with samples patches of protected libraries.

Ability to edit password-protected scripts.

Features portable (PORTABLE) version :

Installation, including additional software (Service Center, Native Access, MS VS C ++ runtime), is not required.

All settings are saved in the program’s portable folder (the Windows registry and other system stores are not used, administrator rights are not required * ).

Integrated Library Manager, which provides full control over protected libraries, and also allows you to register unprotected (self-made) libraries without generating nicnt files.

Ability to work simultaneously with the installed version of the Contact without conflicts and with different settings.


Requires (super)administrator rights if the portable program folder is placed in a protected system storage (for example, in Program Files) – such a location for portable programs is unnatural and not recommended.

Kontakt PORTABLE is not compatible with the NKS (Native Kontrol Standard):

Instruments of NKS-compatible libraries added to Kontakt PORTABLE will not appear on the screen of an NKS hardware device (Komplete Kontrol or Maschine). Accordingly, they cannot be selected, previewed and downloaded directly from the device browser, but only through the interface of the Contact itself.

The controls of an NKS-compatible library instrument loaded into the Kontakt PORTABLE are not automatically assigned to the controllers of the NKS device, only manually in the standard way for external MIDI devices (MIDI Learn).

How to install Kontakt 7 PORTABLE:

1. Create an empty folder. The name of the folder itself and the path to it MUST NOT CONTAIN CYRILLIC. The folder MUST BE WRITTEN.

2. Run the installer KontaktPortable_v720.exe

3. Press the Browse… button and select the created empty folder

4. Press the Extract button

1. Run the installer KontaktPortable_v720.exe

2. Press the Browse… button and select the folder where the Kontakt 7.xx PORTABLE files are located: 3. Press the Extract button 4. When the Confirm file replace window appears , confirm the replacement of files (Press Yes to All )

Method 1 :

Open your host settings and add the Kontakt7Portable\Kontakt 7\x64\VST3\ folder as an additional plugin scan folder. Please refer to your DAW manual for details.

This method is suitable for hosts that do not limit themselves to scanning VST3 plugins only in the standard location (Cockos Reaper, Magix Samplitude,…)

Method 2 :

Run Kontakt7Portable\Install.exe

On the component selection page, select: created a link to the VST3 plugin Kontakt PORTABLE in the standard VST3 plugin scan folder).

Run Kontakt7Portable\Install.exe and select “Add AAX to ProTools” (on the component selection page).

For the full operation of some libraries, it is not enough to download the library folder itself, you need to copy certain content from the library folder to one of the standard Windows folders in the user profile. Thus, some of the content of the library “scatters”, goes beyond the library folder.

The search and storage of such files in Kontakt PORTABLE is redirected from the standard folders in the user profile to the Kontakt PORTABLE folder, namely to the UserData folder, where all the user data of the Contact is located.

The general principle of installing scattered library content.

You can find out in which folder these additional files should be uploaded from the manual, from the description or discussion of the distribution.

In general terms like this:

\ Native Instruments \rest of the path\ , where

is either My Documents

C:\Users\\Documents ,

or Local Application Data


We get the path to the folder where we need to copy the files so that the library working from Kontakt PORTABLE “sees” them:

1) Replace the path to the standard folder with the path to the UserData folder:

\ Native Instruments \rest of path\

2) Native Instruments is thrown out of the path (if any):

\remaining path\

3) If there is “Kontakt 5” in the rest of the path (the old library from the times of the 5th Contact), then we replace it with “Kontakt”

Examples of installing scattered content.

Vasya is involved in the examples , who has

a user profile here: C:\Users\Vasya\

standard folder Local application data, respectively, here: C:\Users\Vasya\AppData\Local\

standard folder My documents, respectively, here: C:\ Users\Vasya\Documents\

Contact is here: E:\KontaktPORTABLE\

All of His user data of the Contact is respectively here: E:\KontaktPORTABLE\UserData
