noire mm pads missing 4350 files?
did what instructions say, load an instrument into Kontakt 6.4.2, but missing files, I put the file folder from pg website into shared library where all the others are
on the dload site, the mm pads are in multformat, reason, exs, Kontakt etc, but there are no Kontakt instruments in that dload, could they be missing,? I just use the Omnisphere ones up till now but would like to use the Kontakt ones
You need to own Noire by Native Instruments. That's the Kontakt instrument. The Unified Noire library is just a quicker way to use it inside Unify.
So those nkm files aren’t for kontakt , just unify?
still happens , I’m running Catalina , have kontakt 6.5 installed, put those nkm files in noires instrument folder , still all files missing
I'm not sure which "nkm" files you're talking about. Our NI K6 Noire for Unify library doesn't come with any.
I'm pretty sure you have to install the actual Noire files (from Native Instruments), using NI's Native Access app. This will ensure that Kontakt knows where to find them.
I'll ask John Lehmkuhl or Taylor Harris to comment further. I'm the Unify developer; this is outside my experience.
Hi Wired - you also have to own MegaMagic Pads for Kontakt. This has nothing to do with Unify.

I set this up myself, and I finally understand what you're saying about .nkm files. Dancing Noire MM Pads is a collection of ten multi patches (.nkm files) for Kontakt 6, each of which loads one patch from Native Instruments' Noire together with one patch from PlugInGuru MegaMagic Pads for Kontakt 5. As it says in the "read me" PDF which comes with the Dancing Noire package, you thus need to own both of these products for the multis to work.
To load a multi, locate it in Kontakt's Files view (or the QuickLoad view) and drag it into the main part of the Kontakt GUI. Kontakt will ask you to confirm that you want the parts of the multi to replace, rather than add to, whatever is currently loaded. You would normally click YES to replace.
When you do this for the first time, Kontakt does not know where to find the various files referenced in the .nkm file, so it pops up the "Content Missing" dialog. On a Mac:
- Check the little box to enable "Keep search mode and selected folders for the current session"
- Click the "Search Spotlight" button.
Kontakt will now locate the files it's looking for automatically, with the help of the Spotlight disk-indexing ability of macOS, and because you checked the "keep search mode" box, it will do the same as you drag/drop each of the other .nkm files into the GUI.
If you want, you can load each of the .nkm files in turn, and for each one, choose "Save multi as..." and re-save over the existing .nkm file. With the default items checked ("patch only" and "absolute sample paths"), this will ensure that you won't see the "Content Missing" dialog again, when loading these multis in the future (unless you move the content folders yourself).
i think I do John, it’s says it’s a multi format , even tho I bought it more initially for omnisphere on your website , it’s n my download section , but to be honest I don’t know if you included it there, even tho You did reason / Omni / wave etc
also when I process info I’m still missing 7 files
Thanks for including those screenshots. The zip file you're still missing is called mm_pads_k5.zip. Check in your downloads to see if it's there, and if not, there might be an issue with how the multi-format MM Pads bundle was put together on the web site. I'll ask John about this, and ask him to post again here.
you nailed it the K5 zip isn’t there for some reason
I have passed all this over to John, but he is on US Pacific time, so is unlikely to get to it until much later. Thanks for your patience, and sorry for your trouble.
ThNx so much !, I’m on pacific too so all good
Hi Wired - please download the "kontakt_noire_mm_pads_multis.zip" file - unzip it and then it will work. You HAVE to have MM Pads installed for Kontakt 6. I get this error when people have purchased this library, installed the Omnisphere 2 version but have not installed the "mm_pads-wav.zip" file FIRST. Without first installing the actual WAV version of MegaMagic Pads, this won't work.
To be clear - there is a mm_pads-wave.zip file that needs to be unzipped. There is a "MegaMagic Pads Samples" folder that should be placed into the MegaMagic PADS for Kontakt 5.5.1 folder. Then you have the samples, resources needed to open the Noire/MM Pads files. It's a little more tricky with the WAV version of the library because the "MegaMagic Pads Samples" folder can be used for each format so it's included OUTSIDE of the folders for the different plug-in formats. But Kontakt needs those samples that are in that folder. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. Mention you've been talking with me via the forums so Taylor will forward me the email. We'll get you up and running!
