Download FAQs

What exactly is Pulse?

It’s a download manger built specifically for sample libraries and virtual instruments, by a very talented bunch of people. Super lightweight and very fast. It’s used by multiple sample library developers to distribute and manage their libraries.

Wait, not another download manager!

Yes, but because Pulse is used by multiple sample library companies, it actually reduces the amount of additional software you need to install. It stops having to have one app for every company you buy from.

Why doesn't everyone use them?

You tell us! We think it’s awesome and other similar industries have had shared solutions like this for ages.

Do I have to download my instrument via Pulse?

We can generate you a custom download link which does not require you to download any additional software. However because this is a manual process you may be waiting a day for us to respond to your request. Plus, you’ll be using your browser to download which is much slower and not as stable.

Do I need to keep Pulse installed?

No, unlike Native Access you can delete is once you’ve downloaded any of our instruments. However, the footprint is really tiny and hardly takes any space.

Do I need to register the new instrument with Native Access?

No, because our libraries use the full version of Kontakt and are not licensed for Kontakt Player, you do NOT need to register them through Native Access.
