Hi all, I installed my new Komplete Kontrol M32 this week after good experiences with my S61. However, I can't seem to get the browser button to work in overlay mode. So when I am working directly in the Komplete Kontrol software itself, or a Komplete Kontrol instance on a track in Logic Pro X, the instrument instance does NOT popup on screen.

After some digging I found out that there is supposed to be a way to switch between "hardware". and " screen overlay" mode in the KK preferences under the " keyboard". tab. However, I do not see such tab in my preferences tab. So cannot change this setting to see if it solves my problem.

When I hit the browser button on my M32, I can see in the little M32 screen that I CAN actually browse through instruments and load them. But I'd like to see it on my laptop screen too. Does anyone know how I can get the on-screen overlay to work so that the instrument instance pops up for browsing?

    Hey @pkzande I assume that you had an S61 MK1. On M32, A series or S series MK2 keyboards, there is no more screen overlay or pop-up window. You can still see on the screen the instruments you are browsing.

    Thanks Jeremy for your quick response!

    Indeed, I think you are right, it looks like a difference in behavior between my S61 (MK1) and the M32. But what I notice is that I now (with M32) need to use my mouse to open the instrument on a Komplete Kontrol track. When I press the browser button on my S61 it opens the actual browser window on my computer. I can't seem to make that happen with the M32.

    But even ignoring that difference, when I manually open the browser window om my Mac with my mouse, the M32 cannot start browsing at the top level (by selecting a specific library, then zooming in to the next level etc). I have to select a library manually with my mouse and WITHIN the library I can indeed start using the M32 for browsing. Is that normal behavior? Is it possible to use the M32 to start browsing from the library (top) level and then go deeper from there? This is what I find very helpful in the S61 but can't seem to do on M32.

    Well, you shouldn't need the mouse at all, even with the M32, once you press Browse, you can navigate between File Types (Instruments, loops, one shots), then Products, types, characters and then results. Did you check the Quickstart guide ? Is it behaving differently on your system ?

    Hi Jeremy,

    Well, that is quite embarrassing. I had not read the Quickstart guide yet (assuming I could rely on my S61 experience). So I went through it just now and all my questions were answered and everything works as it should!!

    Thanks so much for this simple, yet very effective, tip!
