Kontakt within Komplete Kontrol CC11 issue

Hi Folks, I ran NI Session Horns Pro today within Komplete Kontrol in Cubase. It did not respond to the touch strip on the S88 (CC11-expression), and neither did it respond to the CC11 automation in Cubase. When I use Session Horns Pro in kontakt in Cubase, it works great....

Whilst waiting on response from helpdesk I did another experiment; Running kontakt stand-alone, the touch strip on my S88 works great. Session horns pro expression reacts as expected (Expression). After closing Kontakt I opened Komplete Kontrol (Stand alone) and opened up an instance of Kontakt in it. Now Sessions Horns Pro does not see the CC11 info coming in??? I can see Komplete Kontrol is receiving the midi info, but somehow is not communicating that to Kontakt. To me this proves it is not a S88 issue but a Komplete Kontrol issue. What to do?

    Open at Support a ticket and report the KK issue to NI developer, please.

    But take a look at the top of the support:

    I already did (3946276), but waiting on a response. I was hoping that in the meanwhile somebody out there might have an answer.

    Check if anything else is assigned to CC11 in Komplete Kontrol

    Hi @LostInFoundation , yes it does, that is how I know CC11 is making it to Komplete Kontrol. It seems to be changing #000 (Top left), but very erratic. Thanks in advance.

    I see one thing in your picture (maybe unrelated, but worth a try): Midi channel is assigned to Omni. Try to change it.

    Even if this isn’t Session Horns pro, is it?

    You are right, @LostInFoundation, this is not Session Horn Pro, but same problem with this VST.

    I added an instance of Session Horns pro below it (on Midi Channel 1). Still Kontakt not seeing CC11 (Expression). It does, however, seems to alter "Humanize" (left on top) and in Session Horns, but also very erratic. Somehow, Kontakt is not getting CC11 as Expression, but Komplete Kontroll is interpreting it as Humanize, but very choppy. The fact is, it all works fine in Stand alone Kontakt.

    To make a definitive test I would avoid stocking instruments. Try opening only Session Horns Pro and select the midi channel

    Just did that. Same result. Feel like I tried it all the last couple of days.

    BTW; The exact same thing happens when using CC11 automation data from track within Cubase.

    Another experiment; Komplete Kontrol in Stand-alone mode and loaded Kontakt Session Horns pro.

    Mod and Pitch wheel are working and do what they are supposed to do in SHP. However, the touch strip (cc11/expression) still does not???
