39 <h3>1.&nbsp; Description</h3>
40 nkitool is a simple console application which exports and imports the human
41 readable XML file from and to Native Instruments Kontakt .nki instrument
42 articulation files. So far, Kontakt v1 to v4 format versions are
43 supported by this tool. nkitool is released in binary and source code format
44 in the public domain. However in case you find mistakes or improvements, we
45 would appreciate if you share them with us!<br>
46 <br>
47 <u>Note:</u> Starting with Kontakt 4.2.2, <a href="http://www.native-instruments.com/forum/showthread.php?t=131374">Native Instruments have changed the file format</a>!
48 The new format is not supported by nkitool yet! Trying to use the tool on such files <a href="http://bb.linuxsampler.org/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=625">will lead to a "zpipe error"</a>.

50 <a name="usage"></a>
51 <h3>2.&nbsp; Usage</h3>
52 To extract the human readable XML file from an .nki file, simply call the tool
53 as follows from the console:
54 <pre>
55 nki.exe Foo.nki
56 </pre>
57 You can then edit the created Foo.xml file with an ordinary text editor. To
58 replace the XML file within the .nki file with a new / edited XML file, call
59 the tool from the console like this:
60 <pre>
61 nki.exe Foo.nki Foo.xml
62 </pre>
63
64 <a name="download"></a>
65 <h3>3.&nbsp; Download</h3>
66 So far there is only a console binary for MS Windows operating systems:
67 <ul>
68 <li><a href="http://download.linuxsampler.org/dev/nkitool/nki.exe">nki.exe</a> (Windows)</li>
69 </ul>
70 However since there is only one small C source file, you can easily compile it for
71 any operating system (see below).
72
73 <a name="sourcecode"></a>
74 <h3>4.&nbsp; Source Code</h3>
75 This tool consists of just one small C source file:
76 <ul>
77 <li><a href="http://download.linuxsampler.org/dev/nkitool/nki.c">nki.c</a></li>
78 </ul>
79 You can most probably compile it for any operating system. The source file depends on
80 <a href="http://zlib.net/zlib-1.2.5.tar.gz">zlib-1.2.5</a>. Probably you can however also
81 compile and link nkitool against other versions of zlib as well.
