FAQ

  1. select a font or copy & paste a Google font type name.
  2. set the size, color and font weight
  3. Optional: type in a custom text sample to verify that everything looks good.
  4. hit the apply button
  5. adjust the y-pos (line-height) and crop the sprite
    • make sure that the font does not overlap or cross the red dots
    • leave at least 1px space between the red dots and largest glyph / character
      (which is usually "|" or "[ ]")
  6. Hit Export
  7. store the sprite into the Resources/Pictures folder of your kontakt instrument
  8. don't forget the with the same filename as your font sprite:

      That text file is only needed to be able to store the font image into the resources container (.nkr)

      An empty txt file with the same file name is all you need

      The font will still work because Kontakt only needs the red dots for reference

  9. HINT: Sometimes a fancy font or a very small font size just doesn't work:
    • try to adjust the letter spacing then
    • or adjust line height if one of the glyphs has overlapped or crossed the red dots

The font integration works via the Kontakt Script Processor (KSP) or Kontakt Scripting.
For more detailed instructions with code examples read the accompanying tutorial.

There is also an extra display tool for Kontakt 6 to quickly display your own fonts within Kontakt

Unfortunately, no. Depending on the font or license, it may not be allowed to upload certain fonts to third-party servers.
Google fonts are all licensed under the Open Font License (OFL) and also come with a very developer friendly API. So we decided to only support Google fonts.
