Sonica Instruments KOTO 17 KONTAKT-DECiBEL screenshot
Team DECiBEL | 18 May 2021 | 13.95GB
KOTO 17, the seventh title in the Virtuoso Japanese Series, brings the sounds of the 17-string bass koto, an indispensable part of modern Japanese music, to music creators everywhere.

Coming three years after the development of KOTO 13, KOTO 17 benefits from advanced features that coax new tonal qualities from the library.

Naturally, KOTO 17 can be used as a solo instrument. But it complements the 13-string koto and shakuhachi extraordinarily well, making it an essential component in both classical and contemporary Japanese music circles. And when paired with other titles from the Virtuoso Japanese Series, such as KOTO 13, KOTO 20, or Shakuhachi, KOTO 17 can complete an incredibly powerful ensemble.

Ok, I meant which was 188 mb when I first downloded it but was corrected when I downloaded it the second time (so I assumed they had corrected them all). They have corrected Uploaded & Rapidgator but havent corrected ddownload yet.

Maybee a stupid question ,but why are so many recent Kontakt Libs like NI Libs packed with an .exe file and PKG ? If you have to install this, you have to keep the unpacked Lib on your internal HDD or put it on an external HDD ? So you loose two times 14 GB of HDD space Or am i wrong ? Thanks for the supply.
Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail..
  Resident 16.11.2013 3 1074
Yes, you are wrong.
You must have something installed on your computer.
It is a .ISO file and you just mount it and install, then you can delete the ISO after.
  Resident 9.10.2013 237
I keep the ISO file as a backup on an external drive.

Thanks for sharing!
  Member 29.01.2017 9 257
That's just what i meant. I open the ISO file on my external HDD and install the lib on my internal HDD and keep the lib (opened ISO) as backup on external HDD. But do i really have to install the whole lib or a bare minimum, like snapshots and folder name (and of course the installed .exe with name in folder and place a link to where the exe can find the sounds on any external HDD ? I have 12TB of Kontakt Libs.. I can't install that all on pc on 1TB SSD ?
Most libs are fully unpacked with nkc and nkr or nict files on external HDDand that way i can make a link in Kontakt lib folder,where to find those full libs external. That works, so no need to install whole lib on internal PC .Thanks for the reply !
