Presets are .ksd files.

Post by footsy » Tue Sep 06, 2011 4:00 am

I got some free presets and they are .ksd and I run a PC.

Are these able to be used on ableton? I put them in a file, I tried restarting it.

Google said its for native instruments, but I was curious if it could work for ableton.

they require software instruments developed by native instruments, which can be run inside ableton live -- but I'm still hoping this post is a joke.

Hi footsy,

Basically as mholloway said, they're presets that are loaded by VST applications created by Native Instruments. You'll need to download/buy the NI VST application to be able to use them. Once the application is installed, you launch it using the normal VST method in Ableton (in the manual) and then depending on the NI VST application it should allow you to load the KSD file.

Some KSD files are intended for specific NI products but I believe (although I could be completely wrong) Kore can load most of them.

There is a free version of Kore (Kore player) that can be downloaded: http://co.native-instruments.com/index. ... replayerdl


Hope that helps

Cheers, Simmo
