    Hello. I was charmed by the offers and tried to add maschine + komplete standard bundle to cart but... It does nothing? I tried in multiple browsers, chrome and brave, and both pc and android phone, everytime i click and my shopping cart stays empty. I also tried with different products... What's going on?

    I am a Maschine+ user who is in need of a new MIDI keyboard. I am evaluating several options, and the current discount on the Kontrol S49 keyboard makes it a viable contender for me, but I was just looking for clarifications on some of the details involving S49 used with Maschine+ in standalone, so would like to know

    1) Will I be able to power the S49 from the USB port of Maschine+ in standalone mode? (ie do I need to use a PSU with the S49?)

    2) Will I be able to display scenes in one display set (say, on S49), while displaying patterns on the other (M+) simultaneously? This would be ideal for performance

    3) I noticed Reaktor 6 supports controlling the lightguide of the S49 via the "HW Control" module. Will these controls also work when I am using a Reaktor ensemble inside the Maschine+ running in standalone? This would be ideal, as there is no way to display reliable visual feedback from Reaktor ensembles (such as a compressor's Gain Reduction readout) inside M+ running in standalone. If the lightguide can be controlled this way, it would enable all sorts of "meters" to display, as long as the control rate of the lightguide is fast enough (say, something like updating the lights once every 100 milliseconds would already be usable)

    thanks!

    I have the full version of Kontakt 7 (v7.3.2), Kontakt Factory Library 2 (v1.1.2) and the Kontakt Factory Selection 2 (v1.1.0), came with Komplete 14.

    Now I've got a crossgrade offer for Kontakt 7 for 99,50 EUR. I can not figure out what do I get additionally for that money.

    I don't think you would benefit anything, seeing as you already have a licence for Kontakt 7. Only scenario where such a crossgrade would make sense would be if you decide to sell your Komplete licence later, you'd still keep that crossgraded licence of Kontakt 7. You'd effectively have 2 Kontakt 7 licences, one of which would be tied to Komplete.

    Re the Summer Of Sound Sale.

    I own Kontakt Crossgrade and want to buy Komplete 14 Standard. "My Komplete Offers" says ... "As an owner of KONTAKT Crossgrade you qualify to install and activate this version." and the version it says I qualify for is the "Upgrade for Select" for Komplete 14 Standard for $199.50.

    Does "Upgrade for Select" mean I have to already own Komplete Select ... or do I only have to own Kontakt Crossgrade to buy Komplete 14 Standard for $199.50?

    Thanks!

    hi ! i have your ni mint guitar.. it has hundreds of guitar pattern styles and u can use that inside a daw four at a time which can be selected merely by tapping on a midi key.. works great.. what i WANT to do is to lineup say not 4 but rather say 25 guitar pattern styles and then at say every other measure start the next style pattern.. end result is for a tune of 50 measures.. ever other measure has a different guitar pattern and for u midi experts this can't be a new idea.. a great answer back is : "MARK : to run thru not merely the four patterns presented in the mint ui but rather 20 or 30 etc.. DO THIS.... thanks

    I've been trying to get the S49 + Komplete standard bundle since I thought its a steal. But whenever I try to put it in my cart, it says it's loading then does nothing or is completely grayed out. I wanted to know if anyone else was having this issue?

    It can help to imagine you're part of a band. Try practising in sync with some music that you really like. Or a metronome, if you wanna take it to the next level πŸ’₯

    Being able to feel the "pulse" of a track is key.

    Being able to count beats in the back your mind is a plus - but not mandatory in the first place.

    Also do not overthink pad-mappings. Those will develop naturally once you are getting in the flow of things. And if you wanna dive deeper and get scientific I recommend the awesome tutorials from Jeremy Ellis and the wonderful Datsunn!

    Have you ever checked out "Kontour"? It was created by one of NI's founders Stephan Schmitt. A phase-modelling synth which is amazingly expressive - especially when you control it with a guitar synth. Pat Metheny also used a lot of reverb. Try pairing "Kontour" with "Raum" to give it a super-lush tone ;)

    The drag'n'drop MIDI feature you mentioned is super useful and in fact it is part of a lot of our Play Series Instruments, e.g. "Butch Vig Drums" and "Empire Breaks". Currently I don't know if there's anything similar on the horizon for Battery 4. But I do agree Battery's sound quality and effect section is awesome!

    The expansion "Soul Magic" contains a pretty useful collection of individual vocal one-shots! But when it comes to Gospel choir sounds I can't think of anything specific. The "Choir:Omnia" instrument won't properly fit I'm afraid πŸ˜…
