CREATOR TOOLS are a suite of tools designed and developed to support the instrument creation process of KONTAKT 7.

KONTAKT 7 ships with a standalone application suite – CREATOR TOOLS – to aid the instrument creation processes. It consists of three elements
✅Debugger, for identifying and fixing problems in KONTAKT script;
✅Instrument Editor, which can load and run Lua scripts to automap samples, duplicate and batch rename groups, and copy settings from one part of an instrument to another;
✅GUI Designer, which allows creators to assemble, customize, and reuse KONTAKT performance views and controls without the need to write code.

Project Panel
The Project Panel consists of the Project Manager and the File Browser. The Project Manager allows you to collect files and folders and organize them in groups in order to quickly access a project's assets. The File Browser allows you to view files on your computer storage devices and open them directly from within the tools.

The Log helps you detect and fix possible issues while building your instrument. It receives notifications generated by any KONTAKT instance and logs messages, warnings, errors.

☑️ Select different filtering options for the log
☑️ Pause the debugging session
☑️ Clear the log content
☑️ Access the log settings

KPS Variables
Inspect variables and arrays by using the commandswatch_var andwatch_array_idx ind the KONTAKT script. Their value changes will be displayed and updated in real time.

Instrument Editor
Load the instrument you want to edit in KONTAKT and select it in the Instrument Editor. Its structure will be displayed in the form of a nested tree and can be modified through Lua scripts in the Lua Script tool.

Push changes you did in the instrument's structure to KONTAKT via↑ or pull changes you did in KONTAKT via↓ . Badges on both buttons indicate changes that aren't synced yet.

Lua Script
Load Lua scripts from the Project Panel or drag them directly from disk. Run them to modify the structure of an instrument. For example, automap samples directly from your disk, duplicate and batch rename groups and zones, or copy settings from one part of an instrument to another.

☑️ Open the loaded Lua script in a text editor, for further modifications
☑️ Run the loaded script to apply actions on the instrument structure
☑️ Stop the execution of the running script
☑️ Clear the Lua Script output console

GUI Designer
The GUI designer allows you to assemble, customize and re-use a KONTAKT graphical interface (performance view), without writing code. It can generate two types of files, the performance view files (.nckp) and the control files (.nckc). You can add controls, modify their properties and group them in panels.

The performance view files (.nckp) contain all the information about an instrument's graphical interface. These files can then be loaded in a KSP script, refer to Loading in KSP. A new performance view file can be created from the Insert menu of the Project Manager.

Load a performance view in an instrument via the KSP command:load_performance_view. Everytime you save the performance view file in CREATOR TOOLS, the instrument's interface gets automatically updated so you can track changes in real time.

The control files (.nckc) are files that are created by exporting a single control or a container of controls (refer to also Panels). These files can then be imported in a later GUI Designer project, shared with collaborators or set the foundation for building custom UI libraries. Control files cannot be loaded in KSP.
