Dear Customer,

Thank you very much for purchasing an Orchestral Tools collection! This document contains information about the installation and activation process for your purchase. Please read this document carefully. If you experience problems, you might find solutions in the FAQ sections of our Helpdesk.

The following table lists the collection names this Installation Guide applies to with the minimum required version of Kontakt. There you can also see whether you need the full version of Kontakt or if the Player is sufficient. You can learn more about Kontakt Player vs. Kontakt Full on our Helpdesk.

1. Collections marked "Full" in the list below require the Kontakt Full Version in order to run without restrictions. Additionally, these collections do not need to be activated, and they can not be added to Kontakt's Libraries tab. In Demo Mode, these instruments will stop playing after 15 minutes.

2. Collections marked “Player” in the list below will, of course, also work perfectly in Kontakt Full Version, and will need to be activated using your serial number.
