      Can you help me with changing my Forum name? My forum name shows as Dhughley. This is not my name but mastarks@gmail.com has been my email address since for this forum for years. Dhughley is not the name I’d like to use with my forum account. All of my NI purchases are currently under mastarks@gmail.com.

      after some work on my laptop, my Akoustik Piano (installed on Logic) no longer reads the sampled sounds. A window opens asking me to activate the instrument, but my password is not accepted. Keep in mind that I use Akoustik Piano on two computers. In the other everything works fine.
      What can I do? Thanks for your help.
      all the best

      I just joined this forum as I purchased a brand new S88 mk 2 keyboard

      I must say I’m shocked at the packaging on such expensive piece of equipment. The reason I have raised this is that couriers have managed to damage the Keybed via an impact no damage obvious.

      i am interested to know if anyone on the forum has experienced this scenario . I’m now told I have to wait a month for a replacement

        Devs - When viewing a forum post that another user has commented on, can you have a link to the original thread so I can see what replies have already been made?

      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
