I made a dumb mistake -- where do I get Opus 1 and 2 for K2?

I purchased the side-license for both online, figuring I had a multi-format disc set. I DO have multiformat, but it's Giga/EXS24 only. How/where do I get the K2 media? And I assume the cost will be minimal since I've already paid for the licenses?

Thanks for any help.

you don't need any media, the K2 programs can be found as download (including manual) here: USER AREA - DOWNLOADS - Kontakt 2 Programs
the samples have to be taken from the EXS Samples folders of your DVDs though

Ah, that's the best news i've heard all day. Wink I assume the same process holds true for Epic Horns and French Oboe?

this applies to all libraries from the horizon series, even if they are already out of stock (the original product containing the media)

As an extension of this topic (more dumb mistakes) I have bought the Chamber Music set, perhaps without thorough thought. I have Kontact 2, but the DVD case mentions only Giga andEXS products. Does this mean I can't use it in Kontact? If this is, is there any means of using it on a Vista operating system. I also have purchased the Vienna Konzerthaus Organ which has the performance interface. Am I right in assuming I need no other software for the organ but can use it with a midi keyboard into the performance interface? If this is so, can I use the Chamber Music into the same interface?

 You can use chamber strings in K2 but you need to register it as such first then download the program in the user area/download section.

Vienna Konzerthaus Organ is a VSTi and can be use just like any other VSTi.  Except this thing sounds much better than your average VSTi. ;) You are going to need a host like a sequencer or a VSTi host. I recommend Chainer, they have a free version that should do the job.

  Enjoy!

Since there is no actual dumb mistake in this thread, I will go ahead and add my dumb mistake.  A long time ago, I purchased Overdrive and Concert guitar and never bothered to open the box on either one.  A few years later, I looked into to getting K2 side licenses for these since I had long since stopped using GS.  I noticed I needed to register both libraries before I could purchase the side license.  So I register them both as GS.  Within minutes, I purchase and register the K2 side licenses.  Only after the fact did I realize that I could have just registered them both as K2 and would have not had to purchase side licenses.  Doh!  Now that's dumb mistake Embarrassed
