When loading a Sound from the KOMPLETE KONTROL Browser you may receive the following error message:
OS X users must ensure that the latest VST versions of their Native Instruments plug-ins (eg. MASSIVE, FM8, KONTAKT etc.) are installed on their system. Indeed, KOMPLETE KONTROL exclusively uses the VST plug-in format to load Native Instruments plug-ins and the latest update of the VST plug-in is required to ensure full compatibility with KOMPLETE KONTROL. If you receive this error message, the NI VST plug-ins are either missing from their installation directory or the latest update of the VST plug-in has not been installed. In this case, you must fetch the plug-ins' latest updates from the Updates page of the NI website and install (or reinstall) them. The latest VST version of the plug-ins will automatically be installed during the update's installation process.
- Download the NI product's latest update installer from the Updates page of the NI website. Here, we will use BATTERY 4 as an example.
- Launch the installer and run the update. The VST version of your plug-in will be checked by default.
Next time you start KOMPLETE KONTROL, your computer's VST directory will be scanned allowing you to load instruments and effect presets associated with the VST version of your plug-in directly from the Browser.
