BWW and SCS broken after updating to Kontakt 6.6.0

I ran into issues with SSS and 6.6 in VST3 where mic positions aren’t saved. Removing the VST3 Kontakt from my plugins folder seemed to revert it to 6.6 in VST2 which seemed okay. This morning Spitfire support suggested I roll back to a previous version of Kontakt.

We try, but they keep introducing tasty new possibilities for developers with each new version. Personally I still develop for Kontakt 5, but I can understand why someone who could be able to make a better product for Kontakt 6 would be tempted. If nothing else Kontakt 6 has Developer Tools, which makes life a lot easier for us - that alone makes it tempting.
Ahh i see. Apologies, I would also like life to be easy for you guys. Oh well. I hope this situation will resolve itself soon.

Similar issues here with Hans Zimmer Percussion. Patches don't load samples.

Works fine in Logic, just in Cubase as a VST3 where the problems occur.

Awkward in 6.5.3, fine in 6.6.0 via VEP. Everything is fine when loading directly from DAW.
I know it’s about BWW but if you have the Adagio series, would you mind checking the legato ? Anyone. I am still on 6.5.3 & the legato I & legato II of the Ensemble patches are sounding really awkward. Well, legato I more, than II. And I checked that’s happening for Cellos. I am going to check the Double Basses soon. Violas & Violins seemed fine but not perfectly sure but will check another time, anyway. Is it possible to go to the previous version I never did but let’s see.

I’m sorry that I don’t have any of the 8Dio strings. I use Berlin and Synchron.

There's a solution in this post
Thanks @Kony! So just naming it .TMP will make the legatos work? Also, I checked I can’t use Close & Far Mics at a time. Is it normal or maybe I forgot the last time I checked but it should be possible to disable the mic position & enable these 2 mic positions at a time, right? I just don’t remember the last time I checked. I was buying stuff but not getting time to use orchestral libraries but since few days am working on a project & I figured this out. Also, my go to got fast legatos 8Dios ALA is not working fine either. The mic positions good but the legatos.

OTOH, should I name it only .TMP ? Well, the kontakt updates cultivated a horizon of anger within so why not name it .ass or .fku? Lol!

Ok @holywilly ! But just make sure everything’s working fine. Particularly the mic positions, I don’t have to stress enough about the legatos. But just check every library & every articulation that’s important to you. That way it’s better.

This just makes me cry I don’t know why & I don’t wanna cry coz of this & it’s not something we can’t fix & we can, that’d be good.

I think it’s better advisable here on, to check all the libraries, after updating Kontakt?

You know what am just looking everywhere for about what to do. Lol you did it. Alright so the legato good for the 8Dio libraries. Well, if it’s ok to know, all the libraries? How about enabling 2 mic positions? Btw it works on 6.5.3 ?
let me test now 8dio etc with VST3 enabled .. hold the line please

EDIT:
pretty much all Spitfire stuff I have (SCS, SStS, LCO, Tundra etc.) seems broken in that it doesnt remember any Mic-settings (not sure what else is broken, SCS frequently just stopped working at all), with BWW as mentioned the legato is broken, but only when one disables the Release samples), with 8dio so far I didnt find any issues

Enough free QC for NI .. back to VST2

6.6.0 seems to have broken the spitfire evo libraries & the Noire library too, re loading both seems to fix the issue but happens everytime
I go into a project so it’s become tedious very quickly! Is there anyway to go back to the previous version of Kontakt? I checked the NI website for legacy downloads but that only has Kontakt 5

Yeah, one has to ask for mercy at NI to get 6.5.3 . I created a ticket 7 days ago asking for exactly that. So far I only got email (from the system) that the ticket is in the system.. wow
