I just got Kontakt 2 and I'm loving it so far; however, I've got a bit of a problem with playback. After I've loaded the instruments in banks I test them using the keyboard window. For instance, I'll press a C on marimba once; it sound great. If I press it a second time right after it has less volume. If I press it several times in a row quickly it decrescendos and skips like crazy. This happens with every instrument. Also, the same exact thing happens when playing the sounds back in Sibelius 4. So, my playback is pretty awful to say the least. I searched for a solution to this problem everywhere on this forum, but no luck. Here is what I've tried:
Removing reverb from all instruments Making sure retrigger is orange in all instruments Everything is being loaded into RAM instead of DFD Lowering my latency in K2
Pentium 4 3.0 Ghz 2 Gigs RAM Soundblaster Audigy
When I use VD2 as a standalone program everything sounds great, but in K2 these problems occur. Please help!
What you're describing was a problem with a [i]few[/i] instruments before this update, but definitley not most of them. So I'm not sure if that's the problem or not. It does sound like you've tried some common remedies
