OMG---this one is huge. I don't want to post things that are going to end up on On Sale Now, Deals for the week of March 9, 2017 - Sample Library Review , but these three packages are more than just string orchestras with articulations. The ChairSelections, Divisi, Chord/Scale, and PatternMaker/Arpeggiators, among others, make this a monstrous deal. Looks like a deal that will definitely, again, make you really glad you own Kontakt.($100!).
For those of you who have been wanting Chromaphone and/or other AAS instruments/expansions, NI has a pair of good sign-on celebration bundle deals that might interest you (every instrument for $200; every expansion for $100). Until 3/12.
SoundEthers has a bundle offer of four of it's commercial Kontakt libraries (all except Spaces1.1 and the free Freefall) for ~$23 at KontaktHub. Often generated from field recordings, they can have a distinctively hauntic realistic edge. They use the Photosynthesis engine and they often make use of the multiple layer feature.
And if you're looking for Kontakt percussion, this is a good time at VSTbuzz: Auddict's Drums Of The Deep (~$37) and Stigmatized Productions' Stigmatized Drummer ($16).

HelloSamples has their fourth Kontakt SnakPak out, based on "Wild Water Percussions", for $11.50 (under $10 with the code SP4OMI until 3/13). These SnakPak libraries come with a pad-style instrument interface and are more versatile than the price would suggest.
The Alpine Project has released their new free flute library.
Kudo to the NI programming/development staff for solving another library issue with FableSounds' Broadway Lites while FableSounds is off-line and incommunicado. This worked great for me:
"Thank you for your patience. One of our developers was able to provide the NICNT file for your library, that Kontakt seems to be requesting. Please download the attached file named "Broadway_Lites_NICNT.zip", and double-click it to unzip it. Place the file named "Broadway Lites.nicnt" into your main Broadway Lites Library Folder, then try to load the library again. When Kontakt requests the NICNT File, simply point Kontakt to the ".nicnt file".*
Please get in touch if you need more help.
