Issues with the Kontrol s-series mk.3
Hello there. I’ve just received my new kontrol s88 mk.3, and everything was awesome until I was going to try it out. I always use Logic Pro X when playing/composing, and have been using my old kontrol s88 mk.1 until today.
I have read many threads discussing some of the same issues I’ve been facing on the website, but no solution seems to work. When I first tried launching Kontakt 7 in Logic it crashed instantly. I tried to troubleshoot by my self first - turning on and off the KS88, scrolling through settings and trying to figure this out. It appears this is impossible, at least on my MacBook Pro M2 with Ventura.
Komplete kontrol opens, the browser works as intended, but the prehear-function works half of the time, and the keybed is unresponsive when I try to play. No key lights up, and no input is shown in Logic - the keyboard shows up in MIDI-Ports.
I also tried komplete kontrol and Kontakt 7 as stand-alone. Komplete does not open, I get the message “One of the files this plug-in needs cannot be found, please reinstall or contact technical support for assistance”. I hit “ok”, and it behaves just like before. Kontakt 7 opens, but behaves like komplete.
When I press the settings button, the keybed is responsive. I managed to come across the MIDI-setting, which can be switched between MIDI 1.0 and MIDI 2.0. This actually worked - the keys are now responsive, there’s sound, but the interface is only 4 strips of volume bars. I wish to use this keyboard as intended.
I then tried to check MIDI 2.0 in Logic, but now Logic freezes every time I load a preset.
Yes, I’ve tried everything - NIHardwareAgent is running, deleting the sc. file, I have updated the firmware, the MIDI-ports are obviously on, the keyboard seems to be correctly connected and the keyboard is recognised.
Can anyone help me? I really want to start using my keyboard! I’ve also sent a request to NI-support team, but no answer yet.
