What is an NKS file?

Audio file used by Kontakt, an application used for audio sampling; stores a "monolith," which combines audio samples and patch information into a single file; enables audio engineers to manage sampling information more easily.

More Information

NKS files are saved in a proprietary format. Therefore, audio engineers may choose to keep the patch and sound sample data separate, which allows flexibility when using the waveform samples with other audio applications.
