      I have never run NI in Standalone. I run Cubase (8.5.3/Mac VST) in my studio and no live gigs. I did do as requested, and ran Komplete Controller first in Standalone. But when I update, I just update now through the new update system. So why do I need to run things in Stand Alone. BTW, I have the awesome S88. Thanks much.

        It initialises the library. Without doing that there are sometimes errors when using it in a DAW.

      Hey Sowari, i'm a bit late in the day to this but through some searching i came upon a post about a white grains ensembled you edited to stop the preset resetting itself, was just wondering if you still had it around?
      1. sowari
        yes, but please ask on the Reaktor Forum

      Hi, My name is Emanuel and I'm new to Maschine MK2 and you seem to know your stuff. Sorry for dumb question but do I have to load my music instruments to a pad first to hear them. Wish I could just click one time to hear on computer first then load to pad? Hope you understand the question, if not maybe live chat can help. Looking forward to playing with MK2

        Sorry, but you need to ask these questions on the Maschine Forum.

      Hey there! I saw your reply prior to closing my post for being a "duplicate". If you read both posts, you'll see they're about different unrelated problems. The reply with the solution, however, was the same, so I can understand the confusion.
      1. sowari
        it seems you are correct. the fact you mentioned Monark in both threads and your solution was the same, made me think they were duplicate threads.

      I'm sorry i gave you a thumbs down but i couldn't do anything else since you "closed" the post. (i'll undo it if you can make "sense").
      Did you read that i "asked" NI if "it's oké to trade". They say yes. "unused" licenses may be traded. So why not on the official forum?
      Maybe someone has a double expansion(UNREGISTERED). Should we just ignore the double soundpack and leave it unused?
      1. sowari
        Okay, I will ask some other Moderators what they think.

      Hello. I received a Maschine Mikro not a long time ago. I was looking at videos on youtube and saw Jeremy Ellis and other artists using their Maschine Mikro with no color displayed, but when they hit a pad, the LED color shows up. I hope I put that into words you can understand. Is there a way for me to do that on my Maschine?
      1. sowari
        please ask questions like this on the Forum. cheers.
