    So by "kontakt Keyboard" you mean the "Komplete Kontrol" keyboard (and possibly the S series" ? Also, there is nk "S7 version, there is the S series and I think you may have Kontakt and Komplete Kontrol confused as the same thing, they are 2 different things.

    If you are using the keyboard directly with Kontakt then no, you will not see the instruments on the keyboard because the keyboard requires Komplete Kontrol which is the librarian for the keyboard, it happens to catalogue all the Kontakt libraries (and also any other instruments you own with ability to also add custom libraries such as ones from my signature).

    So in order to use the keyboard correctly you want to load up Komplete Kontrol and then that can be used to browse Kontakt libraries and they can then be loaded within KK and controlled.

    Many thanks for this info I have now got the instruments showing up in the keyboard but now if I start up any of the other NI programs on the desktop they dont work as stand alone so if I load up massive for instance on the desktop it won't work from the desktop I'm getting a midi signal but no sound I've reset the driver and updated the driver but still nothing also to get thing to work though the keyboard I have to load guitar rig 6 first then it finds the driver I then have to close guitar rig 6 then open komplete control it then works through the keyboard I cannot get any of the effects to work neither

    After taking the advice from the above people that got part of it working then it was mainly drivers it can be a pain in the ass I think there is still maybe one or two issues with it but we can live with that at least most is working fine computers can be a tad tempremental
