Cremona quartet does not accept All Midi Notes Off command in Pro Tools. Can that be fixed.
I have had an “all midi notes off” issues ever since I got Cremona Quarter over a year ago. The Cremona Quartet intruments do not respond to and “all midi notes off” message sent from Pro Tools. I went through severaI rounds with tech support a year ago and finally gave up. The response I got was that one should not stop play in the middle of a note. Well, that’s no an answer. When you are overdubbing on a session with 20 instruments going, you may have to stop occasionally, and you can’t wait for all instruments to come to an end. When you stop a Pro Tools session, all notes are supposed to stop.I recently purchased PROJECT SAM ORCHESTRAL ESSENTIALS 1 and 2 and found they have the same problem as the Cremona Quartet. So I checked all my libraries out, and here is what I found: I have 85 Kontakt libraries, and 78 of them have no problem accepting the all midi notes off message in Pro Tools. The seven libraries with issues are Cremona Quartet (4), Orchestral Essentials (2), and Symphony Series Woodwinds. What is somewhat odd is that the Symphony Series String Ensemble and the Project Sam Orchestral Brass work fine. I wondered what is different in construction between the Symphony Series Woodwinds and Symphony Series Strings or between two different libraries from Project Sam. I contacted Project Sam, asking why ORCHESTRAL ESSENTIALS had the all notes issue but the older ORCHESTRAL BRASS CLASSIC didn’t, and I believe they gave me the answer that is the key to this puzzle. This is not a problem on my end, but rather a problem with the libraries.
Here is what they said:

Thank you for your explanation.
From the 2.0 updates we wrote our own note on & off code. Orchestral Brass Classic presumably uses the functionality of Kontakt itself.
The issue has been noted and we will look into a possible solution with the next update for Orchestral Essentials.
So this also must be what happened with Cremona and the other Kontakt libraries that don’t function properly.
If someone could try the following, maybe we could identify the problem with the remaining Kontakt libraries
1. Instantiate Kontakt in a Pro Tools session
2. Load a Cremona Quartet Instrument into Kontakt.
3. Play a sustained note and hold it.
4. Click on “All Midi Notes Off” in the Pro Tools Event Menu.
5. Does the note stop? For me it doesn’t.
