    Are you using Playbox in standalone Kontakt or as a plugin in a DAW? Spacebar does nothing in standalone.

    Hi

    I have Ableton Live 10 installed but not open. I just opened Playbox in Kontakt... means standalone... looked up all preferences but can't find how to handle this...

    Should I open Playbox in Ableton to get it playing?

    Thanks a lot

    Yes. Or you use a MIDI controller with standalone to play it in realtime.

    Hi

    I just try to put playbox as a plugin into Ableton. I only have Maschine MK 2 as controller ... with this it could work?

    Thanks

    Playbox is not a standalone plugin, it's a library that you must open in Kontakt. So load Kontakt...

    Hi Evil Dragon,

    thanks a lot for your help! I loaded it with Kontakt and another time with Maschine and with Komplete Kontrol....... I can play the sounds with the keyboard window , but still I cannot let the chord preset just play in order to play around with the preset live... I kind of getting crazy .. spacebar not working...

    You first need to record your performance (coming from MIDI controller, or punched into Live's piano roll note by note), then you can play it back.
