How do I load my AKAI sample CD into Native Instruments Kontakt?

1) Before launching Kontakt, insert the AKAI CD into your computer (if you don’t insert the disc first, Kontakt may not recognize it).

2) In Kontakt, make sure the Browser is open on the left-hand side of the window. You should see a CD icon that says “AKAI” next to it.

3) Click on the “+” sign next to the CD icon and you will see an alphabetized list of the disc’s partitions.

4) Open any of the partitions and the “Programs” and “Samples” folders will appear. To open a program, click on that folder. You will see the name of the program appear in a window below the folder. Double-click on the program and it will be loaded into Kontakt.
