I just downloaded the free software library on my iMac 27" Desktop and it's not playing or showing me different sounds/voices. only showing me numbers with up/down arrows and doesn't make any sounds play when I press keys on connected keyboard in my GarageBand.

Is there something I did wrong or missed?

    @Ominous Truth Have you tried in Kontakt in standalone? What keyboard are you using? If you play the keys in Kontakt's plug-in window, do you get sound?

    Maybe this article will help: Configuring your MIDI Keyboard / Controller in KONTAKT

    • This is Ominous Truth. Thank you for replying to my inquiry. Well, my OS is Sonoma and my keyboard/MIDI controller is a Korg i3 which is not yet compatible with my computer. Im using GarageBand and although my computer sees my keyboard it will not even allow me to play the internal sounds within the board itself. I can only access/play/control the sounds within the DAW itself. I also installed another DAW and have the same issue (Serato Studio). Still waiting for these companies to update their software. I was wondering if that also might be the issue.

    Ok, I see what you mean now, it's a Garageband thing, you need to go in your preferences and untick this box:

    Still having an issue. Can't pick and choose individual sounds. Also, downloaded like 16 different things/apps or whatever you guys call your different sound packages and only see 3.

    So, the initial issue is fixed? You can see the Kontakt plug-in now? Are all the libraries showing in Kontakt in standalone? What products exactly are missing?

    On my old Mac, I used to have this stuff and it worked great! Lost the whole computer. Since Apple upgraded their OS, I can’t use any of my old “tricks” anymore cos NOBODY’s stuff works anymore.😣

    Please answer the questions. So, the initial issue is fixed? You can see the Kontakt plug-in now? Are all the libraries showing in Kontakt in standalone? What products exactly are missing? Please provide screenshots if needed.
