Hi - just got the Epic Horns DVD; I was under the impression that this now came in Kontakt format. The DVD says GIGA and EXS24 - did I possibly get the wrong thing here? The VSL site says:

TASCAM Gigastudio 2.5
EMAGIC EXS mkII
Steinberg Halion
Native Instruments Kontakt

Any ideas here? Thanks much in advance.

You install the EXS24 version and then download (after registering) the appropriate K2 files from the user area.

Hi,

it´s very important that you register your Epic Horns for Kontakt (when you choose the format). Then you have access to the Kontakt programs that are waiting for you in your user area.

Kontakt 1.5 programs
Kontakt 2 programs

Both come with a detailed description an screenshots for an easy installation Smile

If you experience any troubles, please contact .

I have also moved your post to the HALion/Kontakt forum, hope you don´t mind!

Best,

Paul

Thanks for the info guys, and no, I don't mind the post being moved - I wasn't really sure where to put it anyway.

So, from the DVD, I have several Epic Horns.exe's, and a wrar330en.exe, a .dmg file, instruments and samples folders....how exactly do i register? I ran Epic Horns.exe's but no reggie thingamijiggie popped up...

Ok, getting somewhere - went to the registration area, and logged in. I entered the serial # as it appears on the back of the DVD case. The serial # starts with a letter. The site, however tells me, "The value to register has to be numeric"

What now?

Vienna Instruments is the current product. You are using the legacy product.

May I add my question to this thread? I had the same problem earlier when I received my Epic Horns. I registered it as "Kontakt" and could download the K2 programs after that.

BUT when trying to use the discount calculator my Epic Horns does NOT show up. Consequently I am unable to calculate any discount! Did something go wrong with the registration? What can I do? Crying

musicpete, if your registered products don't show up correctly when you are logged in please click the button *hide my products* and select checkboxes manually - or use the calculator without beeing logged in.

Thank you!

This worked, now the check mark next to my Epic Horns is showing up!! Yay!

Yet when I select any library for testing purposes (e.g. Special Edition Extended) it says I am not eligible for discount. Am I doing something wrong or did I simply not understand the discount system? Do I need to purchase a 2nd Horizon library for being eligible?

Sorry for pestering you on a weekend with this stuff!

p.s.: I found out that when I add "Opus 1" AND "Epic Horns" to my registered products, a discount will be calculated. Now I am totally flummoxed... [Indifferent]

there are several upgrade paths ... one is from opus 1 to the VI special edition (also first and pro edition user recieve a discount on special edition extended library).

epic horns can be found in the VI brass II collection, so if you purchase VI brass II extended you will recieve a discount for registered epic horns (horizon series)

other examples for upgrade paths would be: horizon chamber strings to VI chamber strings, horizon harps to VI harps, horizon saxophones to VI saxophones, ect ...

Aha, that makes it clear! Thank you for the explanation!

Unfortunately considering the new facts it looks though, that atm there won't be an upgrade for me right now.
