1. Hi everyone,

    Apple just released Logic Pro 10.5 for MacOS 10.15. We found out that Massive X, Crush Pack, Mod Pack, Replika, and Replika XT will crash.

    Our teams are currently working on a fix, and we hope to have this out to you as soon as we can!

    Best wishes, 
    The NI Team

    Hi
    I have Komplete Audio 6 mk1
    When i switch off the pc the power led on the unit flashes
    Does this mean the power fron the USB is still on ?
    If this is the case should the unit be left on or off ?

    Continuous flash or just one flash and then off? If your computer is completely turned off then its USB ports shouldn't be powered and thus the audio interface should be turned off.

    I would assume Yes, but that the Interface connection is not active.

    I don't know, but I cant imagine the Interface is being harmed.


    Is it possible the power button is set to go into "Sleep" mode when pressing it and not fully shut down your computer? (you did not mention Mac or Win, so I can't respond as to how you can check that).

    Peace,

    Ok for windows got to Settings --> System --> Power and Sleep --> Additional Power Settings (under "Related Settings") on the screen that shows select "Choose what the power buttons do". What does it say for "When I press the power button"

    Peace,

    What happens if you unplug the PC? At this point I am basically just curious as to why a turned off Computer would continue to power USB. Other than that I can’t see that this would cause any issues with the A6. Just an annoying flashing light..

    Peace,

    It will if i unplug the power cable but i don't want to do that.
    The best thing for motherboards is to keep the power on.

    Thanks i've tried everything now so i'm going to leave the led flashing and hope it's not ruining the unit.

    I was not suggesting that you unplug the computer, like I said I was just curios. Again, I would not worry about it unless it really bothers you! If it does, then you can take a look at the links that solger posted!

    Peace,
