My Komplete Kontrol S88 no longer works with the latest KK update 3.10

My S88 has been turned into a slave board by this update. Lights no longer change to the selected VST. There is no control from the navigation buttons or knobs. This would be a very expensive board if it could only be used as a slave unit (Keys only) Does anyone else have this problem?? Has Native Instruments turned my beautiful board into a legacy unit??

    Wow. Anything else changed in your set up. I'm using a 66 S2 I think with no issues. I'm sure you have don all the usual updates. Bummer

    I'm guessing your keyboard is an MK1? They are no longer supported by the KK 3.x software.

    You can install KK 2.9.6 to maintain functionality. That is available in the above thread ^^^

    I am terribly bummed out now with the realization that my 1300 dollar board will now be stuck in time. I looked on the bottom of the unit and it is an S88 (There is no MK) The extra bonus is that once I returned it to 2.9.6 it would not recognize Kontak 7 so it can’t load. So I uninstalled 7 (I actually liked 6 better) and it was like ol times…..HOWEVER…….I had purchased a Komplete Standard update on 12.17.22 and in it was many new VST’s that only work with Kontak 7…..This dilemma will only exacerbate as I compose new tracks in my DAW.

    Is there a work around to get Komple Kontrol 2.9.6 to recognize Kontak 7????

    I know it doesn’t help you, but I have 2.9.6 and kontakt 7 works fine, just telling you so you know it can be sorted, hopefully someone else can give you advice on how to fix it.
