NEAT Player

Latest Version: 0.13

View Changelog

Since launching the store, I've had numerous people ask me about a standalone VST version of my instruments. I completely understand and sympathize with those of you who cannot afford, or simply don't wish to use Kontakt, and I certainly can't afford to pay the developer fees to get my libraries on the Free Kontakt Player.

Therefore I give you my solution: the NEAT Player

NEAT Player is currently available for Windows (VST2 64-Bit and VST3 64-Bit) and MacOS (VST2 64-Bit, VST3 64-Bit and AUi). 

If you've already purchased one of the supported instruments, check your inbox for a download link and readme file to get up and running.

Alternatively, you can download the latest version by clicking the appropriate image at the top of this page.

If you find a bug or two, please contact me and let me know!
