Kontakt 7 problem

New Kontakt 7 player works ok, but window works bad. First time I insert Kontakt 7 player is working, but when I deselect this plugin and select it again - window never shows. I must save and load project and then (and only then) Renoise can open plugin window. Only once.

NATIVE plugins have problemsā€¦

But a smart forum user will help you

I have no problems with any other Native plugins, including Kontakt 6.

So an API version problem

But NATIVE plugins are not so reliable

Referring to some posts on the net

No, their plugin manager is crappy, rest is stable as rock.
IK have problem with stability, but not NI plugins.
Anyway - itā€™s some thing worth investigate.

no problem with IKā€¦No problem at all

Test their SSL strip emulationšŸ˜ˆ

Glad to hear that you have no problem with IK stability, unlike dozens of users on many forums. :slight_smile:
I have almost everything from IK, so I know from my experience that their plugin likes to crash sometimes. Some more frequent, some not.

Really strangeā€¦seriously

really stable

I think drivers are low level,soā€¦can be problematic

Full Intel in my case

AMD doesnā€™t permit 90 degree ventirad rotation

My PC is like the new high end Xboxā€¦take fresh air from bottom and reject warm air to topā€¦since 7 years

this bug has been reported in a separate thread, and it was fixed in the latest kontakt update

Update appears today, so I just installing it. Thanx!

Here are the specsā€¦

I hope to use early Kontakt 7 in Renoise.

With the last update from NI 7.1.3 RUNS like a charm

First time didnt show the screen, so I saw that runs if you have DirectX 12.
Then I updated and voila !!
Here is the screen :
it runs 7

some random plugin window errors here


and all the knobs not in the right positions. the big knob respond in the center of the replika window, not in the place where the knob in the UI

and i get this in latest kontakt 7 vst3, vst 2 and so onā€¦

LoL. I was going to post about this issue
Yea, i have got problems with KONTAKT 7 too. The plugin panel will open only once. Then it never shows.

  • Air Music Hybrid synth also causing the same problem, but with a black plugin panel.

Native Instruments plugins as reliable as any other brand in general. Renoise has issues with NI on API level (I think). Any other DAW works with NI just fine.

It was actually an NI problem. Today i have received the most recent update on NI access center.
Kontakt 7 is working fine right now.

Did this already happen to Massive X, to? I tried it once, and it was a mess in macos Renoise, sluggish, not reacting gui, and those above crashes. Didnā€™t find a changelog, only outdated forum entriesā€¦

I actually dont know. I own only the old massive. Try to update it to the most recent version.
