NKS Quality Control
So it's a given that when users make NKS presets there will be issues with the quality/consistency of things like tagging, often making a bit of a mess and it's sometimes difficult to pick up on this especially given the broken way the tagging in KK works these days (not removing old unused/inaccurate tags even after being fixed)
However, there are some mistakes I often see in official NKS libraries which are suppose to go through some kind of quality control I would think. Just a quick few examples off the bat:
Example 1: Native Instruments Hybrid Keys:
There should not be a "Pads" character
Example 2: Native Instruments Hybrid Keys:
Again, should not be a "Piano" character and no such character / type exists for just "Keys".
Example 3: Native Instruments Hybrid Keys (again and again...):
Synth should be "Synthetic" tho personally i would love to have seen Synthetic as just Synth but meh... Plucks should just be Pluck...
Whoever checked/compiled Hybrid Keys must have done so at 4:58 on a Friday afternoon.
Example 4: Native instruments MassiveX
Sweeps & Swells is a category, not a Type
Example 5: Arturia
The lower case "release" places this in a new tag
Example 6: KV331 Synthmaster
"Top" is not a tag I know of...
Nor is Lick...
That is just a quick example, there are more examples but CBF going through everything and I notice this during the cleanup of my own mistakes in tagging which are evident in the tags displayed.
Just thought I would bring this up since it may be showing a drop in quality control when it comes to checking these libraries, and it's honestly not a huge task given the official NKS pool is still pretty small. Anyone who actually sues it and looks in the NKS tag browser will see the mistakes for sure.
Another one that is already known but still irksome is this:
