Can't put sounds in Favorites

Since yesterday in all my NI instruments I cannot put a sound to the favorites list.

Nothing happens, when I click on the star icon.

Thanks for any help, Mike

OSX 11.6.8, all NI latest version

    Do you mean in the Komplete Kontrol software?

    In Komplete Kontrol software, in Massive X, in Battery and so on.

    No matter, if standalone or plugin.

    Hi @Milamu can you double-check if you've given a full disc access to all NI products?

    Yes full disc access to NI products!

    I'm having the same issue! It seems like the favorites.db3 file was corrupted. I removed my favorites.db3 file to generate a new copy, which allowed me to use the favorite feature again. This of course discards any previously saved instruments, so I suggest keeping a backup of the file in case a fix becomes available.

    The fact that this was reported so recently makes me suspect that a recent product update might have caused this bug.

    Thanks for your post, I could restore that favorites.db3 file from a Time Machine backup,

    so now it's working again.

    Hey guys,

    Same problem here, thanks for the solution. For the time being, I resurrected a version of favorites.db3 from May 21st, via Time Machine, which for me seems to be the last version before the latest KK update... I hope they will make a fix in the next update.

    This is my original post if some moderator wants to connect them:

    Hello guys, this problem is back again for me... I spent hours and hours listening through new sounds, setting favourites and now I can't set new ones and also can't see the favourites when I click on the main star icon (above the presets list). The favourites appear only when I select a specific library. The only solution is to delete the existing favourites.db file and start fresh, which means I totally wasted my time setting the favourites in the first place... any idea on the solution?
