Support Issues – Please read first
Our aim is to make your purchase as easy as possible but sometimes there are issues. When contacting us please read the FAQ first which might have some info on your issue which might fast track your solution. Keep in mind we get orders globally and timezones might delay response. And please make sure you know the difference between Kontakt Full vs Player before buying any sample library. Our buying process is simple; once a product if purchased you can download it from your account which you create when buying a product. We will also send an email with the download links. Please check your spam email folder as it sometimes lands there. For additional support outside of the issues in this FAQ please contact us via our contact us form and not by the info email from your order. Please note that we will no longer be answering support emails if the issue is present and answered in our FAQ/forum section. Please understand that we get daily emails asking the same questions that are available - AND answered - in our FAQ, specially Kontakt Full vs Player issues, and as a small developer these emails take up valuable sound design time. We apologize for the inconvenience but please contact us if the issue is not in the FAQ and we will gladly offer full support and normally go above and beyond to make your purchase and experience a positive one. For any troubleshooting and issues please use our contact us form: https://pulsesetter-sounds.com/home/support/contact/
Kontakt library is not detected by Native Access, Says Demo or needs serial number
The Kontakt library is only for KONTAKT FULL version and will not work with Kontakt Player. Please check before buying any Kontakt sample library. https://www.native-instruments.com/en/products/komplete/samplers/kontakt-6-player/kontakt-6-player-vs.-kontakt-6/ Here is more info available on the web; Kontakt Player is a free version of the Kontakt sample playback engine available to download HERE. It works with libraries that the developer has paid a license fee for. Essentially, the developer buys you this playback engine. The Kontakt player gives you full access to all the sounds and all the editable parameters on the front panel. Also, unlike non-Player libraries, these libraries will also be available to load from the Kontakt Libraries pane. If the library you want to use is NOT a 'Player' library, then you need to buy the full retail version of Kontakt. Please note that non-Player library instruments will not appear in the Kontakt libraries pane and will not need to be authorized in Native Access as Player libraries need to be. Instead, these libraries will need to be loaded via the Kontakt files browser or you can add the library as a favourite to the Kontakt Quick Load window. Instruction on how to set up Quick Load can be found HERE. Here is a video from realitone stating the differences: https://youtu.be/Y-y1AACWB68
We use multipart Rar or zip files to be able to make smaller individual downloads. We try to keep each files less than 1gb and we use enterprise secure 3rd party servers. Sometimes downloads will be slow or stall depending on many factors like time of day, location and local connection so please try downloading one file at a time and if any file fails to download try again. Use download managers if it helps like in Chrome. Also, try using a different web browsers if you have issues with any button, graphics, link etc. as sometimes the website is not 100% compatible with specific browser/OS/system combinations. We also added Pulse Downloader application for some of our libraries for easier and secure downloads. Each product will mention if its a Pulse Downloader app.

How to download and open RAR files
Download all the rar files. IF they are zipped then unzip it and. The rar files will will be in parts and end in rar1, rar2, rar3 etc. All of these need to be downloaded an placed in the same folder. You will need a program to open rar files. For mac we recomend the free app Unrarx. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4e6e5otZACs (please download the app for the mac store or the original website. windows users are more used to rar files but here is a video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8CQur8JSI0 winrar is useful but you can use any rar If you still have issues please google : opening multi part rar files. If it fails opening please re download the rar files.
Most samples libraries use rar to compress the prodcut for delivery. Some rar application on some OS might work a little different. If you have issues extracting rars please try a different unrar application for your OS. There are many that are free. Also make sure every rar file is the same size (except for the last rar) and compare to the rar file on the downloads section. Sometimes rars get corrupted on download so please try downloading again. If you still have issues please make sure to specifcy what OS and rar application you are using. For those new to rar, there are various tutorials online but the fast version is that you need to download all rar files into one folder, then click on the first rar (file.rar1) and it will automatically extract all. If you hit rar2 some files might not open.
Pulse Downloader App
Pulse Downloader is a 3rd party download application for large sample libraries. We use Pulse downloader for certain products.

How do I load my sample library onto Kontakt?
For Free or Kontakt FULL libraries that do not have serial numbers you can drag and drop the .NKI file from Finder (mac) or Explorer (windows) directly into Kontakt Full. Or you can use the Kontakt file browser and find the nki: https://support.native-instruments.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115002386445-Load-a-free-Sample-Library-within-Kontakt-5-Player
Our Kontakt libraries for the FULL version of Kontakt might contain snapshots in a separate folder. These will have to be manually installed in your system. Only Kontakt PLAYER version sample libraries install snapshots automatically. For Kontakt FULL version these snapshots have to be added manually and its common on most sample libraries. The easiest way is to open a kontakt instance, select the wrench tool on the top left and select instrument. On the small pop up window select snapshot>show. Finder (mac) or Explorer (windows) will open the place where kontakt stores ALL snapshots. Drag and drop the snapshot folder provided. The folder name should be the same as the .nki file of the instrument. Once finished, select the exclamation point in the kontakt engine (top right). https://youtu.be/xOrqjutmBSc . You can also access these folders directly from your OS - On Mac OS X: Macintosh HD/Users/Your Name/Documents/Native Instruments/User Content/Kontakt. - On Windows:C:\Users\Your Name\My Documents\Native Instruments\User Content\Kontakt.

Are your samples royalty free?
“Yes. Our samples are royalty free. No additional license needed or credit required, or any further fees or documentation to use them in any way for music production libraries, scores, commercial music, Radio/tv commercials, theatrical, streaming, youtube, singing in the shower, playing DJ in a restaurant, beaming it to space etc. As long as you are making music, or using the sounds in a music context, or using the sounds to create new SFX by modifying it for a music or post production project you are good to go. Just don’t use the samples to create a new sample library product or give them away or resell them or upload to any file sharing type site or tech. If the sounds are provided in "Stems" and are isolated then that’s also ok. But give us a shout out in our social media pages or music forums if you end up using them for a cool project. We might share your post...Obviously that last part is not mandatory :)”

What is Pulsesetter?
PulseSetter is a fictional character we created to convey our passion for sci - fi. He is from a dystopian future in a crowded sealed off megacity surrounded by toxic no-mans land. They live under a hard rule of law and as such many subversions remain underground and active. Pulsesetter is the unsung hero who drives passion through his music. Using a mix of old technology and new he performs and encourages passion in an stale underworld.. yet he wants no part of any confrontation and remains neutral... but thats not what the security forces think. Check our comic strip at the bottom of the main page.
Please use our contact us at the bottom of the page and fill in your info.
Personal contact info?
We will still answer to personal email. [email protected] Add a note for the persons name.

Do you offer educational discounts?

We like knowing customer feedback so please let us know. We also work and are friends with many media composers in Los Angeles and we constantly ask them what they need and how they work and our features are normally a reflection of this. Also, it depends on the cost of GUI development vs cost of sound design and other reasons which is how we decide our products and GUI.
