Ive tried to remove U-he Zebra from the Komplete Kontrol library, but have had no success. Ive deleted everything I could find, for example U-he application support and preset folders (both user and system), components, vsts, all the files from the NI folders. Scanned and rescanned everythins. I have searched forums and google. Nothing seems to work. I still have it on my Komplete Kontrol which is irritating since it has a ton of presets which give me errors.

    Sorry , I do not have a Mac (uses Windows) , but I dug up this for you (in your case Zebra not Diva ?) :

    It's a long post about removing on Windows , by deleting everything and delete in registry (I do not know Mac equivalent) , but in short it ends up that they delete a XML file and apparently remove KK db and re.install KK also , but read it yourself.

    (the Gist being that some info are stored in the XML and in the KK DB)

    Quote :

    delete the Diva path from the Factory tab go to /Library/Application Support/Native Instruments/Service Center and delete the dixa.xml file

    In summary:

    Deleting the xml file should work

    If not, reinstall KK

    If that still fails, delete the reg keys that ED mentioned and reinstall KK again

    If you have any presets listed under these icons, have you tried to right-click and show in explorer then simply delete all presets for that instrument in the opened location?

    Thank you! Deleting the corresponding xml -files removed the libraries!
