    will some instruments of GPO take advantage of the new controller dimensions management?

    Caveat! After installing 1.5.2 Logic (PC) returns the message: \"ASIO: Plug-In \"Kontakt\" not available.\"
    After wasting time getting 1.2, 1.5 and 1.5.1 to work or kind of to work, I won\'t make that mistake with 1.5.2. Anything NI is off my system.
    Does anybody still think that this company is serious?

    I sometimes have the same problem with Nuendo. To fix it, I simply put the Kontakt (or whatever) dll file in Nuendo\'s vst folder. Works fine after that.

    By the way, I don\'t think this is NI\'s fault. Everything\'s automatic in Sonar, so I have a feeling it\'s the sequencer\'s problem.

    The Kontakt dll file is in the right folder.

    Have you thought about doing a thorough system check? Or maybe the folder you THINK is the right folder is the wrong one... ?

    I\'m not trying to insult you. Just help. I haven\'t had a lick of trouble with any of NI\'s products, except for the minor Nuendo glitch above.

    EDIT: And, yes, the update works fine also.

    The folder is:
    Program Files\\emagic\\Logic Platinum 5\\VstPlugIns.
    The system has been rock stable for almost 2 years. Logic, Samplitude, Giga, Melodyne are all working fine, anything NI has been nothing but trouble.
    Just have to wait for GS3.

    Well, I can only assume Logic and NI don\'t get along. You said you were on a PC, right? So no Logic upgrades then...

    Uninstalling the McAfee firewall did the trick.
    Don\'t ask me why .....

    Jeannot, I too have had nothing but trouble with McAfee products on both my PCs, causing strange conflicts and other problems.

    I would like to know if anyone is using another brand of Firewall/Virus scan and how it gets along with their music apps?
