New user - Trouble Getting it Running?

Rusty2 Member Posts: 7 Newcomer

I am using Cakewalk by Bandlab, familiar with VST's, but cannot get anything to work in Native Instruments Komplete Start? Appears to be a file path problem? Kontackt comes up in Cakewalk VST locations but no interface and no sound? ... I have tried again and again to install, re-install, delete etc...NOTHING? I am obviously doing something wrong, Can someone please advise on how to setup the libraries correctly so they work in my VST folder... C:Program Files/Cakewalk/ VSTPlugins ANY help would HELP Thanks Rusty2

    So, you are saying that you can't hear any sound from your DAW, right?

    Maybe you should experiment with different audio engines.

    Let me know if it helped.

    So you can see Kontakt in your plugins list, you can add it to a track but you don't see any UI? Do you see a black window where the UI should be? If so check this article - KONTAKT 7 FAQ – Native Instruments ( - it's most likely the graphics card needs updated drivers.

    If it's another problem, like not being able load Kontakt as a plugin at all let us know. Do other instruments from Select like Massive work ok?

    Hi Mike, cannot load Kontakt plugins at all? everything else (Cakewalk + other VST) is working normally? With VST's the content is put in Programs and the .dll is put in VSTplugins? When I do this with Kontackt I get nothing ? No UI, No Sound? Any advice would help... Thanks Ross
