Default Preview sounds in Komplete Kontrol keyboard?


I have tried to get an answer on this but not lucky yet.

Anyone knows if there is possible to use the functionality preview sound on Komplete Kontrol keyboard using EW libraries?

I had read is possible but just on your DAW not when using the stand alone app from NK. But I didnít be able to get this work even on CUBASE.

Any view on this???

How do we do it though? When I bring up an East West instrument in the komplete Kontrol library browser I don't get a preview sounds playing. I still have to load the instrument which is very time consuming. There are a few people out there supplying enhancements so you can get previews (which I understand are actually little audio files not the instrument getting loaded). Any advice on the best way to audition sounds would be appreciated. I'll continue searching the forums. I was hoping I'd see something in the Play 6 browser but I don't see it there either.

My Komplete Kontrol standalone has NKS support but there is no preview. I think LMW may have misunderstood the question.

I believe all three of us are referring to the ability for komplete kontrol to play a brief preview audio byte when you select a sound in the browser list WITHOUT ever having to actually load the instrument. From what I can tell this is done by including a short audio file which KK simply plays back. EW NKS support doesn't appear to include this.

All of us have already run the nks installer. Like was previously stated (some) of the products do then show up in the Komplete Kontrol and Maschine applications and have some control mappings. What they don't do is allow for the auditioning of each instrument without loading the instrument. With other non NI instruments there is usually also an accompanying download of audio clips for this. Some are supplied by the 3rd party and some are actually done by 4th party individuals (Spectrasonics Omnisphere has a couple of folk that have done this). What we all want is for EW to supply these as well. Its one of the best parts about being NKS compatible for me. You can so quickly preview/ audition sounds. Its great. The installer is definitely not sucking down or installing extra files for me so far as I can tell. If we're doing something wrong some additional instructions aside from a link to where the installer is would be appreciated.
