Please note that EPIK4 is not the software emulation
of the KAWAI K4 synthesizer, it is a sample library.
The synth we have used was only a raw material:
the recorded samples were just the starting points.
We have exploited the specific features of Kontakt
and created a vivid, live sounding library.
Most of the patches are velocity sensitive and they
have been designed to live performers, so a good
midi keyboard (with modwheel, control knobs and
aftertouch) is higly recommended.

All samples were recorded and processed, all patches
were created by PinkNoise
After downloading the EPIK4 package,
you will need a rar unarchiver, like UnRarX
(Mac) or Winrar
to unpack the content.
Inside the package, there will
be one main folder: EPIK4 Kontakt Edition
- it contains all files of EPIK4. You can move this
folder to your Kontakt sampler library, but please
don't change the folder's internal structure!
Now you can launch Kontakt, and
use its internal browser to locate the presets of
EPIK4 (nki files). Using drag and drop from your
finder/explorer may work as well.
If you have any question, please feel free to contact
