Can I do this?

I have a bunch of the NI/East West libraries installed on my old XP system, and cannot install these to my new W7 rig unless I stump up a bunch of cash to NI for “upgrades” that involve the PLAY engine - and ecause I have read so many horror stories about this I am simply not prepared to go through all the pain.
SO - Can I turn all these libraries into HALion 4 libraries - without having to install the instruments on the new system?

I was hoping I would be able to locate samples across the network & save the newly created HALion instruments to the dedicated samples drive - is this possible please, and what would the workflow be?

Are you MacGyver?

You can surely do it with a rubberband, a popsicle stick and a paperclip…

If you can’t do it, no one can…


If they’re the old Kompakt/Intakt ones then they’ll work in the free Kontakt Player, no need for Play.

Sorry to hijack the thread, Neil. But I couldn’t resist:

Quinn: “What guys?”
Robin: “Those guy guys, you know, those guys with skills?”
Quinn: “Skills?”
Robin: “Yeah, you send them out into the wilderness with a pocket knife and a q-tip and they build you a shopping mall. You can’t do that?”
Quinn: “No, I can’t do that. But I can do this (Pop!) [pops his mouth with his finger]. Does that help?”


We need a “heart” or “group hug” smiley in this forum…!:slight_smile:
