    Kontakt 2.1 released:

    Just downloaded the K2.1 update and it solves some of the issues they were having and adds some new features. Nice one for a long weekend...
    Looks like we're going to make some updates soon.
    The NI website is really slow though, wonder why

    Best regards,

    Yes, disheartening for myself due to its large Meg size. Downloading on dial up is just not worth it. I wrote to N.I. to see if the would send me a copy of the update and even offered to pay for it. Their reply, "Go to an Internet cafe and download it from there." Nice.

    Thanks for the tip. Sounds like it might be a good idea to wait on a download though.

    The NATIVE INSTRUMENTS website is currently not available.

    Due to very heavy web traffic, our webservers are currently overloaded. Please try again later.

    I was lucky, downloading the update before their server went down...

    I was thinking "if it's so bad now, what's going to happen when the update comes out?" when I was posting to the other thread about their server problems. I have to wonder about the management as the problem was beyond obvious and would impact their normal business. I can wait, the people really impacted are those clients that actually need info from their site. They should have taken steps, as in beefing up the servers, contracting outside servers temporarily for the update or tiering the update notice and privilege so that business could go on as usual.

    At least they are annunciating the problem. That's a step forward ... I guess.

    It looks like they are understaffed; their homepage even states:
    NI is currently seeking for the German office, Berlin: Art Director, Marketing Director, Guitar Division Sales Manager; Software Developer; Copywriter; Product Manager; Partnering Manager Sampling Line; Product Specification Manager amongst others.

    I noticed that awhile back. It's pretty much confirmed by the slipping of the update releases. Too many projects.

    I've got a problem with this update, when I load K2 as a plugin, it adds automatically a big reverb to all of my instruments !
    Everything is ok when I use it as a standalone.
    Does someone gets this problem too ??
