New Komplete Kontrol UI

Hello

sorry, but when will we get a usable Komplete Kontrol UI. The version 3.0.1 (2023-10-26) I can see the library/sound selection parts, but the loaded plugin only as tiny picture and no plugin UI.

I have two displays in my home studio. Both with a resolution of 5120x1440 and a powerful workstation (like most of us), but complete control is still limited to a size of 1029x858 pixels without any window flexibility that has existed since MS Windows 3.11 (1994). 

I would understand that the VST instruments don't support full flexibility in their UI concept, but Komplete Kontrol around it?

Please, please, please revamp the KK UI concept, I don't like searching through so many libraries with thousands of sounds in this tiny Kontrol UI. And then without any useful functions to arrange my sounds according to my taste, group them, etc.

@KK Developers: If you need some UI ideas from a user, don't hasitate to ask me or the community, to get it.

@All: please jump into this discussion, that I don't feel so allone with my topic!

    You click on the browser toggle to switch between the browser and plugin view now (yes we know this is daft but NI seemed to think it was a *really cool idea* to make people switch views - I think they are gradually realising it isn't give the negative feedback they have had over this)

    In the stand alone version it's not better even wors. After loading a plugin sound the library search is gone. Maybe I'm to stupid to understand the new UI concept, but I don't like to study basic behavior again. It should come up with an intuitiv usability and no rocket since.

    As I said the idea is to flip between the browser and plugin views now using icon I highlighted, not have them side by side anymore. I think the vast majority of people prefer to have them side by side, and from a usability perspective this is indeed needed, to enable drag a drop of samples into plugins for example, but for some unfathomable reason NI thought switching views would be a brilliant idea, so good they did it twice (Kontakt also has this problem)

    Oh, I got it, found the function to switch between the library view and the plugin UI view by click on the this symbol.

    The difference between this two view modes is only a small brightness change on the icon strokes.

    But still the tiny sound choice list (12 lines) in the right side for (in my case) 29.129 sounds and this funy "I like star" marker 🤣.

    I’m not sure if VPS Avenger is NKS compatible?

    In the browser mode, you can slide the mid-section to show more columns of found presets.
