When opening the Machines+ Standalone project, the Kontakt instruments are loaded without sound. Hello ! Who has such a problem? Kontakt tools from the Machines + library.

    What is the firmware version on your M+ (can’t read it in the video)

    Just tried creating a Project using 3 Groups, each with a Kontakt Instrument from the Factory Library on the first Sound slot (Pad 1): drumloop, bass, synth pad. Saved the Project, closed, reopened and the Kontakt Instruments were still working as before.

    Note: I didn’t update my M+ to 1.4.4 since I read on here it has some problems when switching off the M+, and also wanted to stay compatible with Maschine 2.15 on my Mac. That means it could either be related to the 1.4.4 updat (rather improbable) or to something completely different.

    I suggest to contact NI support via contact form or online chat.

    I wrote to NI support on December 6, and sent them a video. I was asked: how was it before? I replied: Hello, I bought the device a month ago, immediately updated it and don't know how it worked before. Memory card original 64gb. I don't know how Kontakt should work on Machine + at all, there is no information about it. But I know that Mashina+ doesn't load Kontakt with sound, it shouldn't. Do you know how it should be? Imagine a musician standing on the stage, opening a project, and he had 10 Kontakt instruments in the project and they were not loaded ...... this is a fiasco. Regards Alex!

    They didn't answer me anymore, it's been 3 days.

    Now I reset the device, the problem remains.

    It should work as you expect, and it does for me, so something is different on your M+. I’m currently out of ideas about a possible cause. 😔

    Humm... That is a strange one. You might have a defective unit. I'd wait a bit for the imminent update and if it doesn't fix it bump your ticket or start talking to HW tech support to arrange a replacement unit.

    Did you install the Kontakt instruments normally thru the Settings menu?

    I sent this video to NI support , so I filmed everything , how much time is turned on , how much is turned off , and the sound problem in Kontakt . I usually load the tools as shown in the 2:48 video.😀

    Here are the 50 tools. Loaded and there is sound. I save the project, exit the project. I load the project again, the instruments are in place, but there is no sound. Who 1.4.4.0 check has problems?

    Hi. I have exactly the same problem. My Maschine+ data:

    System Version 1.4.5.2

    Maschine Version 2.16.1 (R0)

    Firmware 0.1.6

    The Maschine+ is new as I bought it two days ago.

    I already contacted the NI support. They answered but there is still no solution. Does someone has the same problem with Kontakt sounds and solved it?

    Regards, Sebastian

    In the meantime I updated my firmware. The behaviour is the same, problem not solved. No news from the NI support. My current Maschine+ data:

    System Version 1.4.5.2

    Maschine Version 2.16.1 (R0)

    Firmware 0.1.9

    good morning.
    I have the same kind of problem too:
    I load a kontact instrument, it works, and then, all of a sudden, it 'unloads'.... you can clearly see the pattern playing, the pads light up, but no sound...
    forced to reload the instrument, and it works again.
    
    I have the latest update, I bought it new, a week ago....

    Hi,

    I did not yet resolve the problem. But in the meantime NI support provided me a patch file for updating my Machine in order to solve the bug. Unfortunately this did not function, I see the pattern play, the pads light up and no sound.

    I informed NI support about the non functioning patch file and I keep you updated if there are news.

    Regards from Germany, Sebastian

    I also updated the firmware, and tried the patch, the problem remained.
