In Kontakt 2, Chamber strings:

Keyswitches only work when physically hitting the keyswitch keys
on the keyboard controller.

Keyswitch patches do not see the keyswitch notes in the midi sequence.
Im entering CO's and C#O's into the sequence in the piano roll
editor of my sequencer, and they're not changing articulations.


Im already having tons of problems with Chamber Strings, the biggest
one being the Bass instrument bug, wich ive been loading patches
sample by sample, wich has wasted literally weeks of my time,
and cost me 2 jobs so far.

I sincerely hope you're not going to just tell me the keyswitch issue is
another K2 issue.
I dont have any K2 issues for any other libs except Chamber Strings.

I dont understand why you even released this lib for K2 , when its
clearly not fully functional... Not even close.
If i had known it would be like this, i wouldnt have bought it.
I wish i could return it frankly.
Thanks for any help.

This seems strange, but you should be able to check yourself whether the Group Start Options are setup correctly. When you are entering the keyswitches on the computer, are you sure you are using the correct octave and that the keyswitches are placed slightly earlier than the phrase which they should affect?
Moving the playing position of the song can sometimes make the wrong articulation play. I guess you are aware of this and the possible solution with prolonging keyswitch notes and setting your sequencer to chase notes, right? Sorry if these things are obvious to you.

GP, i can understand you're frustrated if something does not work as you expect and your method of trying a solution costs time - i cannot understand an undifferentiated rant not describing the problem accurately to allow someone to help you tracking down the cause ...

there are a lot of users out there (and i mean a lot) with chamber strings on kontakt - i'm sure we had heared an audible outcry if the problem is to be found in the library itself.

i personally do not understand eg. the meaning of your term *keybord controller* - does this refer to your keybord connected to a midi-track?
possibly an example can help to make the respective problem more clear to our support team, who you can contact any time at
christian
and remember: a CRAY is the only computer that runs an endless loop in just four hours ...

Guitarplayer,

My apologies if this is too obvious as well, but do you actually use the Kontakt 2 programs from http://www.vsl.co.at/en-us/68/157/215.vsl ?

Please give us a little more information about your setup, we do not even know wether you are working on PC or Mac...

We never had complaints about keyswitches not working so far, so I am positive we will be able to solve your problem - please do not hesitate to contact us at !

Best, Marnix

Hello Guitarplayer
Sorry that I've not the time to read all the other answers and their links.
So it could be that I repeat an answer which was already given...

Could it be that the Sequencers C0 (Pianoroll?) is C1 or C-1. There is a difference between the Yamah and the Roland interpretation.

Check:
Press the key on keybord which you believe it is C0. Check then on the piano roll keyboard whether it is C0 or not. It could be that you have an offset of 1 octave... ?

Good luck
