S88 on Monterey 12.5, Mac Studio M1 + Pro Tools
I've got S88, which I got specifically for using with multiple instances in my template. It worked fine when I was on my old iMac with Catalina. However, when I switched to the new Studio M1 (Monterey) S88 is unusable. It doesn't show instances in my template (Pro Tools), it doesn't let me browse, or view the keys - it just doesn't work. It works as a normal midi keyboard and that's it.
This is a bit pointless because I got it to view the range of the instruments plus quickly use the browsing options.
The answer from NI I got was that S88 is not compatible with M1 yet but would that be the reason for it?
Also - when I use it standalone, it does show the instrument etc. It's just within Pro Tools that it's not behaving properly.
P.S. It was working fine before.
Has anyone had a similar issue or hopefully solutions to that?
Hey @mkmig, welcome to the online community!
Have you tried opening Logic with Rosetta? That would be worth trying:
Komplete Kontrol M1 compatibility is being worked on and is set to happen fairly soon.0
@mkmig Even if M1 Max and M1 Pro are not fully supported yet, there are no reports yet of similar malfunctions. I assume our supporters already checked that you had given Full Disk Access to Komplete Kontrol and ProTools. You mention that this only happens within templates, right? It's not happening in a new project, have you tried to create a new template ? Do you think you could send us one of the templates where this issue occurs ?0
Hi Nico and Jeremy,
Nico - I use Pro Tools not Logic.
Jeremy - after the latest updates from Monterey/Pro Tools it seems that S88 is working better. I can switch between the instances and it does show on the keyboard.
However, the 4-way knob still doesn't work as it should. Rather than switch between Instances it just plays a random MIDI note.
It does work when I'm in Browsing mode though.0
Oh that's interesting, thanks for the update. Are you using the keyboard as a remote for ProTools? Did you follow the steps in this article ? How to Integrate KOMPLETE KONTROL with Your DAW
Are you using any other control surface or MIDI device ?0
I've reset my peripherals in Pro Tools and the keyboard now responds well. I can use transport buttons to control PT plus the knob to jump between the instances (and browse). When I select the track the keyboard automatically jumps to the instance which is great.
The only issue right now is that the Instances window is empty (when I press the Instances button) and can't select from there.
Other than that, the rest seems to work fine at the minute!0
At least we made progress! I'll try to find someone to check with a M1 computer, to see if it's a general M1 issue or just a M1 Studio issue.0
