Alternate Installation Method For Output Instruments

Applies to: Rev, Rev X-Loops, Signal, Exhale, Substance, Analog Strings, Analog Brass & Winds.

This article details the alternate process for downloading and activating your Output Instruments without the Output Hub. Since our Instruments are Kontakt-based, you can complete the installation process only using Native Access. That said, if you are not having issues with Output Hub please use the primary installation method outlined here. Please be aware that installing your engine through Native Access changes the Expansion Pack installation process. For more information please see this article.


Setting up Native Access and Kontakt

  1. Download and open Native Access.
  2. Sign into your Native Instruments Account.
    • This is not the same as your Output account.
    • Don't have an account yet?  You can create one by clicking "Sign up now" on the Native Access login screen.
