. At the moment, you can't open up any third-party Kontakt instruments within Komplete Kontrol - only Komplete instruments. I have Kontrol 61 and Komplete Ultimate and have not installed the software yet because I need new studio furniture that has a bottom slide out tray for the 61 key controller. You need some knowledge and a lot of patience. You can find out more about all of these updates on the website.
They are undoubtedly more functional though. Hopefully this new standard can also be adopted by others to also pull the data out Such as Push to help everyone play together. Yes, this is one of the nicest-looking, nicest-feeling keyboards around. Akai really does win this part because for all the other issues I had it was a way better library system even at V1. This is where Akai win because they have done much of this work for many of the top plugins and their browser especially the soon-to-be released Beta I have been testing is way easier to manage tags and exporting of presets because its built around that.
I am doing a full comparison of the 2 solutions because each has strengths and weaknesses and honestly I still believe Push does all of this better since it's almost the same amount of work to create browsable presets. Perhaps we will get there one day, but I will not hold my breath. Here is a snippet of the code used to rip the presets: Can I Download the Presets? And thats not to mention its inability to show keyswitches for Play libraries and don't get me started on 'Composer Cloud'! The coolest feature in the update is for the touch strips. That will be decided soon. I am the exact opposite of you.
In the stand alone mode preferences menu I have specified the plug-ins location to the proper place and my plug-ins all show up fine. These links help support the creation of content on this channel, No opinions have been paid for. Some people have been fantastic over the years in supporting the work but based on the numbers I receive less than 1% of people donate Vs number of downloads and I need to cover some costs. This is because the feature exists in the software rather than the hardware, unlike the Korg. Essentially I fill in the list manually of the listed tags such as for Arps above I would create a text file with tags Analogue, Arps, Bass etc on each line and match that up with the start in Omnisphere.
You do not need a PayPal account in order to donate! This will allow us to step through all presets within a single category such as Arps and save these with at least the Arpeggiated tag as the base tag. It's impossible to do this by hand! Watch out for the flying pigs. I didn't know it did scales, I found the chord function though. Please note that UltimatePluginTool is a Windows application only. There was no clear use of Kontakt in his demonstration either, and when asked, he was vague about its integration with the features of the keyboard, particularly where third-party libraries are concerned. This is because the feature exists in the software rather than the hardware, unlike the Korg. Yeah, they really need to figure out how to support existing Kontakt libraries in Komplete Kontrol.
Likewise, Komplete Kontrol sometimes showed generic icons and product panels inside the browser. The Adobe Flash Player is required for video playback. Once it has stepped through all the presets in the tag category it progresses to the next category and starts over. UltimatePluginTool will attempt to restore the thumbnail icons to all your installed products, and will update the Thumbnail Status column of each product when it's finished. This is easily doable so that is the first step. Having a hard time getting most of my Kontakt libraries show up properly though. No such complication with the Korg.
It will quite literally box you in. So I guess the only reason developers need to code this into their plugin is for library presets and tagging and possibly the light guide? My 2009 Imac is finally going on the fritz. That is the one thing that holds me back. So to make this a reality it's simple. I have now resolved my problem and it is all now working. Can't wait for the third-party plugin support.
Otherwise its no better than using Novation Automap which I already have and as usual needs a lot of customisation to work. You can also browse presets by instrument. Running Ableton my projects still wouldn't run with the update. Consider we have 1000 Arp patches in Omnisphere. Komplete Kontrol is only useful when connected to a computer. Having this feature is not a replacement, since it actually stops you from using chromatic approach notes in certain phrases to build tension.
For myself its a significant workflow improvement when having to write music quickly. It also has to be quick since this will tie up time and as much of it needs to run automatically to allow it to run overnight and unattended. As an Apple man I appreciate a walled garden with some kind of quality control between the developer and myself. Seems like a bit of a pipe dream tho. I really respect and appreciate your advice. This makes it difficult to script creation of presets. The text field at the top of the window will indicate if any errors were detected.
In a nutshell that's the process and then of course there are things such as error checks to make sure where we click is where we should click, if an error has appeared and a way to pause if we need. Hopefully all these issues will be worked out with the upcoming 1. I'll have to look into that. The assumption was that you should know them all by heart and play them every day so as to have them in your muscle memory. I can see the potential in the keyboard by the demo videos, but I knew in the back of my head that it would be too good to be true when it came to any 3rd party support - and it appears I was right.
