Super 8 Does Load in Reaktor, But Does Not Load in Komplete Kontrol

Hello, I get this message when I attempt to use Super 8 in Komplete Kontrol.

"Super 8 R2 could not be loaded, as it may not yet support

Apple Silicon or VST2 to VST3 migration."

However, when I attempt to use Super 8 in Reaktor 6.5.0 it works correctly. Is anyone else having this problem and or know how to fix it?

Thank you.

    Super 8 R2 was discontinued last year (source) and so it never received Apple Silicon compatibility. The focus is back on the Reaktor-dependent version. You may use that one instead.

    If you want to load Super 8 presets (of the Reaktor ensemble) from the Komplete Kontrol browser in ARM native mode you need to uninstall the Super 8 standalone synth completely: How to Uninstall Native Instruments Software from a Mac Computer

    Does Native Instruments plan to release a patch so the presets that Native Access provides work in Komplete Kontrol without having to manually remove plugins? I’m sort of confused why a fresh install of Komplete has patches and that wont load in Komplete Kontrol by default.

    I'd like an answer to the preset query raised here too please!

    I have several old projects that used Super8 R2 in Komplete Kontrol, now with R2 removed and the Reaktor version only installed I can't recover my tracks as the presets from the Reaktor version and the R2 version aren't compatible.

    At least if I could load the same presets I could get back to the same (or similar enough) sounds.
