I have Cubase Pro 8 running on a brand new Windows 10 box with an i7 sixth gen Intel processor and 16GB of ram and using only SSDs.
I just bought the full version of Kontact 5, and I am just infuriated as to how [place choice words here] terrible this software is:evil:
I’ve had so many problems. For example: In my VST Rack Instrument choices, I have three versions of Kontakt, one came as a trail with Cubase 8 Pro, One is Kontakt 5 with 8 outputs and the last is Kontakt 5 with 16 outputs. **IF I create more than 2 instances of Kontakt in the VST rack, the third instance won’t work unless I use the versions with multiple outputs. [It only took 2 hours of my time to figure that out]
Another problem is when I play or adjust the VST instrument’s parameters where the Kontakt VST window opens up, I get one volume. When I record and play back a MIDI track I get a much software volume, even after going through and adjusting everything to assure it’s up as loud as it can go.
When you first add the VST Rack Instrument, the instrument track has its Solo or Mute button defaulted to Mute.
Finally the sounds are just crap. The violins sounds like cheap trumpets.
Kontakt is a TOTAL waste of money. I’ve lost 5 hours tonight of recording trying to get it to work and sound half way decent. I am infuriated.
Has anybody else had so many problems with Kontakt 5 ???
