Default EW PLAY 6 and NI Keyboard

Does anyone have a video that demonstrates how Play works with NI keyboards? I am considering new keyboard and would like to see how EWQL looks

Given the NKS standard, it will be a nice experience. I have been using the Komplete Kontrol since MK1 and the MK2 screen really embellish the library. For example, finding horns across libraries really opens up your options without having to jump between different plugins that already support the staindard.

@Tomoner: The NKS format works with Komplete Kontrol.
They are both Native Instruments proprietary.

However, EastWest uses its own engine, namely Play (currently v6).
Play does not run in Kontakt. It used to, but not anymore. Instead,
all EW libraries are opened and run through Play.
You can get Play here.

To promote the usage of Play and NKS, EW has released the following program.
Scroll down a bit: NKS Support Installer

Have you downloaded this specific Installer (and run it)?
You can find the appropriate manual (here).

I installed the NKS installer and I can see the EastWest library in Komplete Kontrol software as well as the Mk2 keyboard. I can't however get PREHEAR to work with EastWest. PREHEAR does work with Native Instruments however and Korg Legacy. Thoughts?

Pre-hear gets updated via Native Access.

I was told by NI that an update to the EW NKS integration would include the preview features which would be a wonderful addition to the ComposerCloud and further guarantee my continued use of these sounds. With NKS working really well with Native, KORG, etc. my workflow is becoming more dependent on these features working with the Komplete Kontrol software and hardware.

If anyone from EW can provide an update that would be appreciated

It's the NKS Support Installer, to be specific.

You can get the download and the guide from the following
page. You'll need to scroll down a bit:
