    SID Output Assignments

    Anyobe using SID in K2.11?
    The SID K2 manual explains the default output assignments as follows:
    1-2 - Tom & Tom Bleed
    3-4 - Overhead
    5-6 - Amb
    7-8 - Tom 12"
    9 - BD inside
    10 - BD outside
    11 - snare over the top
    12 - snare underneath
    13 - hi hat
    14 - ride
    15 - floor tom 14"
    16 - floor tom 16"
    I loaded the Emperor STD Kit C with K2 16 out
    First I used my default K2 output settings - 8 stereo outputs.
    As always, the entire kit appears mixed together on stereo channels 1-3.
    That's not good since K2's volume & meters are inactive so I cannot lower or raise volumes.
    So, I then configured K2's outputs as described above and no change. All drums are still mixed on stereo channels 1-3. As I solo each out in Cubase I hear various mixes of the kit, no isolation or control. Nothing appears on stereo output 4 or mono outputs 9-16 (see above configuration). Again, since K2 volumes and meters are inactive, how can one mix the kit? I have to go with what's there and use velocity and prayer to balance the kit. Either I'm missing some fundamental or K2 doesn't properly work.

    Re: SID Output Assignments

    Hi,
    Since I've been considering purchasing SID and use K2 this is of interest...
    It's been stated somewhere on this forum that SID works only with K1.5 and K 1.5.2 Not K2 - but I'm not sure if someone has found a work around (maybe you have already?)
    Also,
    from the Scarbee site
    FORMAT: HALion 2 + Kontakt 1.5.2

    apparently not backward compatible!

    if you contact Scarbee they are vey responsive

    Apparently Kontakt changed it's Output config. between versions

    Billy,
    Scarbee hasn't been at all responsive to my my queries.
    I've sent 2 emails 4 days ago on this output issue and nothing.
    Furthermore, I've posted on a few forums including Scarbee's. Again nothing.

    I'm perplexed - doesnt anyone use SID with K2? You cannot mix! Everything spurts out channels 1-3.
    Although I love the sounds and potential, I do not recommend SID in it's current state.

    Strange you haven't heard, they got back to me right away....
    I also would be interested to hear if others have dealt with/ solved this problem.

    I have gotten your emails successfully, Thanks
    Still unable to mix SID. All drums are mixed through stereo outputs 1-4.

    You need to set outputs to:
    4 Stereo + 8 mono.
    Please see the "SID Kontakt Manual Addendum.pdf" on DVD 1 - chapter: Audio
    Outputs Conventions

    I've done so -
    Kontakt output - stereo 1-4 (1st 8 of 16)
    mono output 5 - 12 (2nd 8 of 16)

    and no change. What am I missing?

    Thanks,

    Nope,

    you haven't got my last emails.

    Don't know why but they get bounced.

    Anyway, to sum it up:

    Thomas is the man on PC but he is very very busy finishing a product.

    I am the man for SID but it happens I had no copies of SID left here, Thomas today uploaded a Kontakt copy for me: I will install it ASAP and see what's the matter.

    I am sorry for all this trouble, but I am also working on a couple of very important releases and my computers are 'clean'.

    I still have to understand how can I reach you when I have discovered something.

    Maybe through our Scarbee forum?

    Best regards,

    Simone

    I also was interested in SID for Kontakt2 and also heard that it was not compatible (i'm of course talking about SID and NOT SID XL).
    Maybe the update from K2 to K2.11 has solved it?
    Is anybody using it with success in Kontakt 2.11?
    Thankyou
