    Kontakt scream of Death!!!

    Do you guys ever get the "Scream of death" from Kontakt ?

    Both in the Standalone version and the DXi in Sonar, sometimes ( especially when it crashes because of a bad DFD moment ) a very small portion of a note gets stuck and looped making a loud squeeky sound like a buzz/saw wave .

    Midi reset button does not get rid of it so i gotta restart each time.

    Any idea's ?

    I have that too with DFD. Makes me jump every time I hear that loud sound

    Kompakt never does it.

    Using DFD i get sounds more like Jackhammer of death, and Bad cable TV static of death, and a variety of clinks and clanks . But if i say...open a project and then bring up the kompakt/kontakt plugin window while the project is playing it screams like you describe.

    I get a burst of irritating white noise if I'm messing around while I'm loading a sample into Kompakt.. never happened with Kontakt. Otherwise, no.

    I had a horrible case of it. I told Sonar to render my current MIDI work. I left for about 15 minutes, because it would have taken a few to realize. When I got back, it was screeching at the top of its lungs. It hurt my ears. I am still trying to figure out what the hell hapened.

    I get it. Not sure if there's any relation, but it started after I upgraded Kontakt and changed the memory swapping option (Hayden's hint) to speed kontakt/sample load times. Only way to stop it is to close the project. Scream of death is a perfect name for it.

    Kontakt 2 is sipping in ten days' time. Maybe the problem will go away.

    Even when you close the project it doesn't stop ! It's so bad for my health , everytime it happens i have to restart and light a cigarrete while waiting.

    Jo , what is Hayden's Swap hint by the way ? Do you have any idea where i can read about it ?
