Diva vs. Massive X, and picture missing CS80 V

I have the new Kontrol S 61 now for some days. Installation and KK 3 have clearly some flaws, that I hope get corrected in future updates?!?

I' ll have to say that in my opinion the best implementation so far goes to Diva, and in contrary Massive X is a real disapointment in handling/tweaking from the Keyboard 😕.

Also ahead of the competition (and NI itself?) is the the Arturia stuff. But sadly the nice pictures for the CS 80 and the augmented series are not showing up at the screen (just the default blue background) but editing works fine. - Any ideas for that?

It would also be nice to have more NI libraries capable with handling the Poly Aftertouch feature!

And some (if not most!) of the libraries really need some improvement in the editing capabilities on the Kontrol screen!!...

    Hey Fisk1... I'm wondering the same thing about implementation! I saw that Glaze and Cloud Supply just got updated, but when you go to the patches you only get "Sequencer" and "Settings" under the new edit tabs on the KK3 keyboard. Seems unfortunate that you don't get access to all of the things... like FX etc! Hopefully that comes soon, but does seem like it should already be implemented on all of their instruments on release. To me, this is the biggest reason to get these keyboards and I can't find many patches that actually have the full set of functions set up!

    Strangely enough I can't get the new edit tabs to show up on any of my CS80 patches or Diva... both updated to latest versions...

    Now I'm thinking I've got something wrong, just loaded a CS80V patch that Matt loads in the NI YT vid ("Lead the Aftertouch"), and mine still has no edit tab for the groups of controls (even if I press shift). The artwork doesn't work on any of my CS80v patches either... Might have to reinstall everything over here!

    Hey Jef

    I also reinstalled some things many times now , some are working, and then again - they are not: strange and unstable behavior! My guess is that Komplete Kontrol 3 is kinda in beta status, many users complained about it. And if I wouldn't need it for the mk3, I would also go back to 2.9....

    And one of the first things I always tweak on presets are: volume(s), filters, fx* - so obvious to me , but strangely often missing on the first page and buried somewhere on page 14.... or not even there at all 🧐Except the play series (but then: not much to edit there, also sad!...)

    *most of the times to wet for my taste 😈

    But I hope they're working on their updates..., and might listen to us users??

    Another update: I couldn't see the CS80V and Diva edit tabs if I was in Cubase, but I could see them when I went standalone. Running a Plugin scan in KK3 software INSIDE Cubase did the trick! Not sure if it's because I had betas of KK3 that were gumming things up, but if this helps someone...

    Still no art for Augmented series or CS80, but the edit tabs are working!

    "I' ll have to say that in my opinion the best implementation so far goes to Diva, and in contrary Massive X is a real disapointment in handling/tweaking from the Keyboard 😕."

    It's really sad that Massive X is treated to stepmotherly. It's way too good for that.

    Got my S49 today. Everything went smooth (macbook pro m1pro) and hardware is lovely. But no Arturia images here neither.

    Not a big deal but… it looked nice for the beta teaters on youtube 🤷‍♂️

    I have tried to reinstallarturia and rescan in komplete kontrol.

    If it's any consolation, I've never had the Arturia images! Just not working on mine for some reason...

    If you've installed any product that isn't showing images, it's usually a caching issue that needs refreshing.

    You can locate the NI Resources folder, delete it, then open KK standalone and simply wait while it rebuilds (product images will populate until the list is full).

    I'm on my phone, and I don't remember the Windows location off hand, but on macOS it is Users/Shared/NIResources

    Make sure you're loading VST3, and not VST2. And also, a rescan after install.
