I downloaded NI Reaktor Player 5.9.2 and it works fine in standalone mode running applications like Razor. On another PC with Cubase Artist 6 the same version of Reaktor installed automatically as a VST instrument, something that could also be done manually if needed. However with Artist 8 the scan function doesn’t detect it. I’ve copied the Reaktor plugins program file to the Steinberg VST plugins program folder and included a VST 2 pathway to the Reaktor folder.
The newer PC runs 64 bit Win 7 with i7 processor and 16 GB RAM. I got the extra grunt partly to run Native Instruments software products. All help appreciated.
