Developer: Native Instruments
File type: Kontakt Monolith Container File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .nks. Files with the file extension .nks can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .nks files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .nks file?

A Kontakt monolith container file consists of a "monolith", which is the combination of digital audio samples and patch details, and these audio and patch data is then stored in one Kontakt monolith container file. The Kontakt software can be used to create, open, view and edit the content of these Kontakt monolith container files. The Kontakt application is classified as a program with a set of integrated features for the development of digital audio samples. This application and a Kontakt monolith container file allows audio engineers and technicians to manage and organize sampling data in easier ways. These Kontakt monolith container files are implemented with custom encoding specifications used for the NKS file format and are affixed with the .nks extension. Kontakt users are also capable of separately storing their digital audio samples from associated patch details, which in turn allows their waveform samples to be used with other digital audio programs. The Native Instruments Kontakt software has versions for Mac and Microsoft Windows-based systems.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .nks files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .nks. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
