Hi,

Kontakt 6.7 is crashing with large instruments for a year now (with cubendo on W10 dunno for others). Tonight I tried K7 player and it crashes even more.

So i'm planning to go back 6.6 that some people using big libraries on cubendo says it's not buged. Anyway, but before I do that I reopened an old session on nuendo and realise all the instance of KONTAKT are empty ! I had that (so many times when updating or downgrading kontakt) and never understood why !

the folders are the same, the names of the instruments are the same why the hell can't kontakt figure out what instrument to load ? I just don't get it from a programing point of view isn't that basic ?

do I do something wrong ?

thx

    Please try disabling ASIO Guard and try again.


    If you DOWNGRADE Kontakt, and you have saved your project with a newer version, this won't work. Older version of Kontakt cannot read newer version's data, that's how it's always been (and it won't change).

    Hello,

    can you name a library from kK13 or K14 ultimate where it happens often, then i can try on my computer and cubase 12, it has the same "engine" as nuendo as far as I know, even if that will not help you with the empty instances and the crashes. Also cubase and nuendo has a crashlog, have you tried to send it to steinberg?

    @ngodzillaa2 Unfortunately Kontakt 7 and Kontakt 6 are 2 different plug-ins and can live side by side and instances made with 6 will not automatically open with Kontakt 7. I understand what you're saying though and will forward your comments to the team. If I'm correct you were in contact with my colleagues regarding these crashes, did you contact them again ?
