My Komplete Kontrol S61Keyboard won't produce any sound when I use the keys either in the standalone app or in my DAW (FL Studio).


I have included screenshots below and any guidance would be greatly appreciated.



Thanks and kind regards,

Garry

    You want the <KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series MK1 Driver 4.2.0> (if you have a MK1 keyboard) for your OS (Mac/Win).

    OR the <KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series MK2 Driver 5.0.0> if you have a MK2 keyboard.

    Those are the device drivers for your keyboard, of which you are missing one (possibly two).

    NOT FIRMWARE!!!

    You only appear to have the DAW port available (which is not a MIDI port but rather for the DAW control), the MIDI ports seem to be missing:


    Try install the drivers from this page for your keyboard:

    Yep, you definitely need to reinstall the full driver set. The MIDI notes are only transmitted via the <Komplete Kontrol - 1> driver.

    Thanks a lot for the quick response Jester :)


    Stupid question but is this the correct section? Because it does not seem to be detecting my Keyboard?



    Thanks again,

    Yep, correct section however what you circle is firmware update, look below at the one labelled DRIVER. Also try install that with keyboard disconnected first
