Re: Participation in MIDI v2.0 protocol development.

Thurisaz, To show dumb I am, I thought we already had MIDI 2.0. The paper shows a lot of proposed topics for implementation of drilling down into hardware and software. Lots of thought went into this overall. Now is our chance to get our say-so incorporated. Distributed review and contributions will...

Re: My first attempt Strings with Amadeus

Oh Raymond! Oh wow! Oh wow!

From the first with its lower echo-like undertone, I loved it. This is
a spectacular piece! Bring out more of those dusty pieces and fill them
with Amadeus. I for one will be waiting...

Re: Some Pre Purchase questions.

I would add a note to Thurisaz's wonderful summary:

If you are using LoopBE30 to connect to the Cakewalk Sonar DAW,
You must set incoming channels to Omni, not the transmitted channel
number. If not, the tracks will not receive any MIDI data.

Thurisaz, you continue to amaze me!

Re: Kontakt 6 - How to find it

Don, I 100% agree with you. The problem also exists with two of the new libraries in the Kontakt 6 Library Update. I got 5 or 6 new instrument libraries, some of which cannot be addressed directly from Overture and produce the error message: 5c229af3.jpg The problem is with the Kontakt player upgrad...

Re: Kontakt 6 - How to find it

After some research, I find that the problem is not with Overture. Previous Kontakt upgrades have left DAW users without the proper dll's for the player. In the past NI has posted a download link to manually install the new DLL, but with the new Native Access tool being the only way to update, there...

Re: Kontakt 6 - Found it, sort of

user123456, Good tips, all, and thank you. All of it makes sense. I now have a new problem in that the Mallet Flux library cannot open in the overture 5 engine, and the Overture 6 player is not an option. I get a message that it can only be opened in a newer player. Which means that I will have to b...

Re: Kontakt 6 - How to find it

In the case of my problem, I get at least 4 Kontakt player options, 5c1ae40e.jpg but I have installed the Mallet Flux library that is not shown with any of them, and the Phasis and Razor players which are not listed. I am surprised to see the Kirk Hunter Virtuoso Ensembles (Vl.One) library, but not ...

Re: Kontakt 6 - How to find it

OK, I finally got it. I had to set the path all the way back to "C:\Windows\Program Files"
and scan VST2 plugins. Kontakt DLL's finally showed up.

I still don't have access to the Kontakt libraries that I have installed.

Re: Kontakt 6 - How to find it

Bill, even just scanning for only 64 bit plugins and using the Program Files path, Overture 5 still doesn't recognize the Kontakt DLL's. I even backed off the search path to "C:\Program Files\Native Instruments" and it still failed to read Kontakt DLL's. It did, however still find the Cake...

Re: Kontakt 6 - How to find it

Thanks guys. Windows 10 lied to me, as it often does. I found the dll's where Doug said they were, but time manager couldn't find them on a search. This is not the first time I couldn't locate files with this shakey tool. But thanks. So now I have the absolute paths to the dll's. I clear the list in...

Re: Kontakt 6 - How to find it

Bill,
I did a file search for kontakt on the entire C:\ drive and didn't find a kontakt DLL
by any name. That's my problem.

I'll re-install Kontakt 6 and be careful to read all of the dialog.

Re: Kontakt 6 - How to find it

Back to 'Finding Kontakt'. RESET I have installed and re-installed Kontakt Player and the stand-alone. There is no Kontakt.dll, so using the Plugin Manager is not a solution, although I tried it anyway. Apparently Kontakt.exe is what I need to connect to but it is not listed in the Library panel. I ...

Kontakt 6 - How to find it

Wow, do I feel like a dummy. It has been quite a while that I have been using the built-in GM sound banks. Now that I have upgraded to Kontakt 6 and gotten a couple of new sound libraries, I can't remember how to connect Overture to Kontakt. I tried scanning the Kontakt directory for plugins, but as...
