Native Instruments Kore 2 v2.1.4 Update screenshot
R2R | 21.9.2012 | 299 MB
Kore 2 is a powerful software / hardware system with a versatile library of more than 500 production-ready sounds with over 3,000 sound variations, plus over 100 effect settings. Find, play, and tweak sounds with speed, power and ease.


This is final version of the Kore2, which support 64bit. There are many cracks by many crackers, but it looks it is never cracked fine.

Kore2 has simple RAS2 protection with 2 bombs which has not been patched by most crackers. It causes unauthorized dialog when you try to load the presets. And more, Kore2 includes many NI plugins to integrate the sound engine. These are also need to be cracked fine. It's a really hard job to do all - we think that's why it isn't done for a long long time.

We hope we did it right this time :)

Any point to use this without the hardware? I never really quite grasped what Kore was about, and now it's discontinued. Is it a synth in it's own right? I thought it was something to organize your sounds.

That's cool!
KORE x64 finally available.
Thanks to everyone who made this possible.

@ Oxideous,

Any point to use this without the hardware?

Why not ? dunno

I never really quite grasped what Kore was about...

The best thing to do is to either find the Manual and read the corresponding chapter(s), or to have a look at the certainly numerous reviews done by several specialized 'Audio Sites or Forums'.

Is it a synth in it's own right?

Not really a proper synth by its own even if you can tweak the various sounds used by your others added Plug-Ins thanks to the internal effects, MIDI effects,... provided.

To be short :
It's a 'Container' for your several 'Native Instruments' Plug-Ins (FM8, Pro-53, Massive,... ) that you can then load within it. With this option,
you can then either add the previously mentioned 'Internal Effects',
or make 'Layers' among your several 'Native Instruments Plug-Ins',...
among others options.
Another of its Great options is to be able to also load 'third-party' Plugins !
This way you can 'mix' 'Native Instruments Plug-Ins' with any other VST Plugins...
You can then imagine the endless possibilities available to your creativity. yes

Try to find a good reference of its detailed features and specifications...

Thanks Studio 555, sounds a bit similar to the instrument/effects rack in Ableton if I understand you correctly.

  Resident 26.05.2010 3 325
Not to forget, it has a pretty decent own library with good and usable sounds as well yes

Thanks for this!
Did not think we will see anything from Kore again wink

@ Oxideous,

sounds a bit similar to the instrument/effects rack in Ableton

Yes, very similar. The same idea to have the possibility of making your own customized 'Instruments/Rack Effects' Modules is shared by both engines.

grazie , grazie , grazie ..finalmente di nuovo qui wink mates

Also Kore 2 is the only practical way to mass edit metadata within the preset files of the NI Synths/FX (although it's only compatible with the older "non Machine-ized" preset format...*.ksd etc).
I use it to sort and organize my NI presets/patches library and than convert it to the new format within each synth/fx.
This is very useful because the newer browsers inside Massive/FM8/Absynth etc. and Machine of course, heavily rely on this metadata for naming, category sorting and other things.
And since many 3rd party preset packs are very poorly/inconsistendly tagged you need to to re-tag them to in order to manage your archive.

Also NI has no editor out that let's us massedit metadata/tags in the new preset file format.

Kore 2 is the only program capable of doing that and there's no substitute for that from NI.

Shame on NI....boycott everything new from them and only use cracks until they managed to provide a real mass meatadata/tag editor.....that's what i'm actually doing....and i own a lot of their stuff.


  Resident 4.11.2010 1 1072
Yes, this program is so special and powerful that Native Instruments decided to discontinue it. rofl
  Resident 19.11.2010 107
Yep, very special program. Simple/fun on the outside and complex/powerful on the inside.
  Moderator 21.01.2012 997 9309
Thanks to R2R and funtime

One interesting function of Kore 2 is that with it you can combine several Ni instruments as one and save the result as preset.
  Resident 16.12.2010 12 1157
Just a little advice...

BEWARE that if you use the 'regular' installation, you'll end with
the following 'Native Instruments' Plug-Ins in place of your eventual
new versions (within the 'KORE' Plugins folder, NOT your regular 'VST Plugins' foder, of course !) :

* Absynth 5 (v5.0.3.950)
" FX Surround
" FX
" Stereo
* FM8 (v1.1.1.941)
" FX
* GuitarRig 3 (v3.2.1.5)
* GuitarRig 4 (v4.2.2.2564)
* Kontakt 4 (v4.2.4.5316)
" 8 out
" 16 out
* Massive (v1.2.1.1989)
* Reaktor 5 (v5.6.2.11367)
" FX 2x8
" FX
" Surround

As you can guess, using new commercial Libraries or even your recent custom Presets done with more recent versions will certainly not be loadable properly...
Simply overwrite these installed 'Native Instruments' Plug-Ins versions
with your most recent (e.g. 'Massive v1.3.0', 'FM8 v1.2.0', 'Reaktor v5.7.1 (Team R2R)',... ) within the corresponding location.

Hope it help in some way, and that it could maybe to avoid some
'heart attack' damn or some 'angry shout' angry ! wink rofl


Added afterwards

For 'newbies' or 'newcomers' :

I forgot to stipulate within the first part of my comment, that by 'overwrite' the installed Plug-Ins (those installed by default by the 'Team R2R' installer), you must IN ANY WAY directly move the desired 'Native Instruments' Plug-Ins from their original location (your usual 'VST Plugins' folder) to the 'KORE' PlugIns folder !!!
You must to make copies of them, then place these copies in the 'KORE' PlugIns folder.

Here you have a snapshot with some info and suggestions :

KORE 2 'PlugIns' folder content

Hope that all will be fine now for those that will perhaps make these adjustments...
  Resident 26.07.2008 106
THX for the good advice Studio 555!
In fact i run Kore 2 in a virtual machine just for the purpose to mass tag/edit presets and nothing more.
This way the Kore 2 installation doesn't interfere with my legit NI plugins and won't mess things up.

Just another helpful hint for some people.

  Resident 6.11.2008 223

considering it allows installation from 2.0 w/sample library, and excluding other updates... meaning 2.0 directly to 2.1.4
So with this does all 11,000+ presets work?
  Resident 2.03.2012 3 799
Anyone knows, how to make Kore2 recognizes the new NI-formats like nmsv (Massive) or nfm8 (FM8)? It only sees the old ksd-formats i think.

ok sorry about my unknowingness but how do i install this one correct to get it work with all other NI instruments dunno
rigth now i have kore 2 and its not working correctly i really hope with this update it will work properly dance
  Resident 26.07.2008 106

what you want is not possible and will never be (according to NI).

This is part of the BIG problem NI has for me right now (the metadata/tag editor issue described above).

To solve this problem just wait for NI to release a dedicated tag editor or just use patches that are in both formats *.ksd / *.nm** and use the KSD ones with Kore 2 to manage/streamline their tags.
These edited KSDs you can open within the newer NI instruments by using the import/convert function.
Be aware....the import function is sometimes quite buggy and can produce crap files...always backup your edited KSDs before starting the conversion/import.

@ Alpha0ne,

Anyone knows, how to make Kore2 recognizes the new NI-formats like nmsv (Massive) or nfm8 (FM8)?

'KORE 2' Engine can't to recognize itself '.nmsv' or 'nmf8' formats because it uses itself the '.ksd' format, either for saving its own Presets,
or to import its own Presets.

By cons, if you want to use these new NI formats, you must first 'update' the corresponding VST Plug-Ins ('.dll') to the newer versions (as explained in my previous comments). In your example, you must then replace the 'old' Massive version by the new one : 'v1.3.0' and also replace the 'old' FM8 version by the new one : 'v1.2.0'.

When you have done that, you can use these new Preset Formats BUT SOLELY within the respective Plug-Ins themselves, I mean you must to load one of these Plug-Ins within 'KORE 2' Engine and ONLY LOAD these formats within the respective Plug-Ins, NOT within the 'Menu' of 'KORE 2'.
In case you make some changes (tweak some settings) within one of these Plug-Ins and that you want to save these settings, save them within
the Plug-In itself, this way the Preset(s) saved in this form will also be available with the Plug-In if it is used outside of 'KORE 2' as a regular VSTi, or as a Standalone (and in its own format).

If you have one of these Plug-Ins loaded within 'KORE 2' and that you make some changes within 'KORE 2' (add internal effects of 'KORE 2', layer its sounds with others Plug-Ins,... ) and that you want to save all these changes within your own 'Custom Rack' inside 'KORE 2', you must
then save it (them) in the 'KORE 2' format ('.ksd'). This way, the next time that you'll want to play with your created Preset(s) with 'KORE 2',
simply load the corresponding '.ksd' Preset within 'KORE 2'.

Within 'KORE 2', you can also save your creations as 'Performances' ('.kpe').

Only the update? where is the Kore 2?
  Resident 2.03.2012 3 799
@DonQ-Juz and Studio 555. Thnx 4 your comments and explenations. The problem is that i converted the ksd formats both massive and fm8 in the new formats and deleted the ksds to save diskspace respectively not to have doublefiles. ^^ I will never understand why NI stopped developing such a super program like kore2.

Hey guys, I wanna ask why Kore 2 FX.dll cannot be scanned? How to use FX pack like Deep Freq? Thanks.

Lol, life's too short for such a hassle, I use my other 10,000 sounds from other synths then. wink
