NEAT Player

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 (Not Even Appropriately Titled) Player is currently in beta for Windows VST2 and VST3 formats, with Mac versions coming later. It currently supports all of the libraries from the Designer Bundle and Achromic, and I'm working towards porting Oracle 2 and PDQ Bass within the next few weeks.

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

Alternatively, you can download the player here. (You'll still need the sample files from your order email!).

Again, this is a beta, so don't be surprised if you find a bug or two. If you do, please Kontakt me ;)
