I've decided to start a new topic for this since the last one wasn't Elements only. You will find the original thread here, https://forums.pluginguru.com/unify-patchbook/ethera-gold-2-5-kontakt-6-5/#post-11717  

After some trial-and-error, I think I have found out how the new "load non-player libraries" works. That will make the sharing of Unified libraries much simpler and will not require SYM-links.

In order to verify that my asumptions are correct, I have Unified a portion of ZERO-G Elements. You can download it here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/tckpukcehmry688/Unified%20-%20ZERO-G%20Elements%20%28partial%29.guru?dl=0

When I get verification from you that it works on your system, I will publish the complete library.

In this version I have not mapped the macros for two reasons:
1. It is a very tedious work even it scripted
2. Since Unify doesn't support MIDI-ports, it is a risk of unwanted effects due to CC conflicts. I can publish the complete CC setup in Elements Kontakt when I publish the full version.

So, in order to make this work in your system do as follows:
1.  Install Elements in wherever you wish in your system. The only requirement is that the folder containing the Element files must be named "Zero-G-Elements-V101"!!!
2. Open Kontakt(6) and go to Options/Loading and enter the path pointing to your Elements library, as in this example:

2. Install the Unified library by dragging it into Unify as usual.

Hopefully it will then work as expected.

I will not proceed untill I get feedback that this works for you!!

For this to work, you must own Unify and ZERO-G Elements!!!

Yes I can get this to work (Win 10).  Might setting the default path for non-player libraries to this location affect the loading of others?

I had not seen this feature in Kontakt before - is it new?

Good to hear! I will then proceed to Unify the whole library.

It was introduced in one of the 6.x updates when it was discovered that sample links were broken. Yes, it will will affect all Unified Kontakt(6) libraries. If these Kontakt libraries are located somewhere else than under the registered path the Unify patches will not find the samples. If so, just move the Kontakt library folder to this location.

Here is the complete first part of Unified - ZERO-G Elements, https://www.dropbox.com/s/aven7k8vsw5ljb0/Unified%20-%20ZERO-G%20Elements.guru?dl=0 (613 patches)

In order to avoid naming conflicts I've choosen to create one library per .nki, so this one is based on "01 ELEMENTS.nki".

I will continue with "04 ELEMENTS Time Menu.nki" and the added patches in Darkscapes, Dreamyscapes and Dunescapes. Coming soon.

Here is the unified version of "04 ELEMENTS Time Menu.nki". The library also contains the snapshots that Stefano added afterwards; Darkscapes, Dreamyscapes and Dunescapes (total 376 patches).

This library has no Tags, Categories or Prefixes!

Stefano pointed me in this direction ;^)

I tried the partially unified library first and once I had set the paths in the non-Kontakt Player location the presets loaded fine!

Thanks so much for all of the hard work to bring this together, much appreciated.
With Atlantis right around the corner, things are getting very interesting!

Joyfully,
Simeon

@thsve, I just installed the other Guru files and everything seems to be working fine!
Again, thanks so much for all of the hard work, I know what I have done can be very tedious but so rewarding once it is complete. 
The other benefit is having more libraries to help fortify the Unified Ecosystem.

Joyfully,
Simeon

I've now added Stefanos latest additions to "ELEMENTS Time Menu", Cinematic Keys. It is 50 new patches

Download the komplete unified "ELEMENTS Time Menu" with the added patches: https://www.dropbox.com/s/hdlc76e0839e7vv/Unified%20-%20ZERO-G%20Elements%20Time%20Menu.guru?dl=0

or

just the added patches (unzip and move the patches to the library): https://www.dropbox.com/s/mqxdb6llt6s53qf/Unified%20-%20ZERO-G%20Elements%20Time%20Menu%20%28Cinematic%20Keys%29.zip?dl=0   

The conditions for it to work for you are the same as above in terms of naming, folder structure and settings in Kontakt! See the first post above.

You must also of course own Stefanos library and have the snapshots installed as instructed by Stefano in this video: https://youtu.be/PtQKNIyThPo

Hi. I just purchased Zero-G Elements today. Is there any way to get these files? Looks like they have all been deleted.

I had the same problem. Files have been deleted. Would really love to use my ethera soundscapes in unify if someone went to all of the trouble of updating them. I've also tried leaving comments on his YouTube videos on the same subject and he told me to come here so I'm asking here again.

@courtjestr 

Since my dropbox gets full I have to replace files. Now I have put them back temporary:

Unified - ZERO-G Elements.guru

Unified - ZERO-G Elements Time Menu.guru

I add Ethera Gold Atlantis:

Unified - ZERO-G Ethera Gold Atlantis.guru

 

@peterjoslynharris

I've not seen any comment in my YT channel.

I unified Ethera Soundscapes and the Ethera Gold series before the changes in the way Kontakt handles non library links so my version will not work as described above. I will do a rebuild of it and post links here, but it will take a couple of days.  

 

The files will possibly be deleted in a couple of days.

@peterjoslynharris , @courtjestr

Done. Edit: Download link removed.

In order for this to work, you have to have the Soundscapes kontakt library files named "Zero-G - Ethera Soundscapes" under a folder named "Kontakt Instruments" anywhere on your computer. The you have to have the Loading settings in Kontakt point to that folder ("Kontakt Instruments").

EDIT: Due to lack of feedback and the need to make space in my dropbox, the files will be deleted tomorrow!

@thsve So I think I followed your instructions properly but for some reason I am still getting the following error messages whenever I load one of the Unified patches for Soundscapes: 

So then I do what it says by opening it in Kontakt and get the following: 

(Pic 1)

  • ...which I try to resolve by repointing it to that folder you said and then it finally succeeds. But then it happens again when I try to load a different preset. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? Should I Batch Resave in the K menu?

@peterjoslynharris 

I can not see the hole link in the last picture you sent to see why it fails. Check the following!

The following settings/configurations are critical for the Unified library to work:

1. A folder anywhere on you pc must be named exactly "Kontakt Instruments"
2. In that folder must the Soundscape files be placed in a folder named exactly "Zero-G - Ethera Soundscapes"
3. In Kontakt under Options/Loading, "Non-Player content base path" must point to your "Kontakt Instrument" folder (in bullet 1)

If it still doesn't work, please post your config here and I will see if I can see whats wrong.

@thsve Yes, I've confirmed again that it's named Zero-G Ethera Soundscapes in C:\Users\Public\Documents\Kontakt Instruments and loading is set to C:\Users\Public\Documents\Kontakt Instruments. 

How do I get my config to send to you? Is there a utility that reads that? 

BTW I did try the Batch Resave but it didn't seem to help.

@peterjoslynharris 

The name of your folder is missing a hyphen. It must be named exactly "Zero-G - Ethera Soundscapes"!

I'm planning on buying more Ethera products during the current sale. Can you confirm which products have been Unified and where I can download the guru files once I have bought them?

You would be better off asking Stefano. He did the unified versions of his libraries himself.

This was the thread they responded in last time. Can I copy a specific user in a forum post like this?
