I recently had to reinstall my operating system, and now I have a persistent problem that I haven't been able to solve on my own.
In SONAR (X3d build 278), when I create a new Kontakt5 synth for Solo Strad and Gofriller, everything's fine.* But if I close SONAR and then go back to the project, the violins and cellos are extremely weak and tinny sounding, and nothing I do can fix them. I have to create another instance of Kontakt5, set it up with the same instruments, and then change the outputs of the MIDI tracks to point to the new instance (which sounds nice and full). I then delete the old Kontakt 5.
And the new instance stays sounding as expected, right up until the point I exit SONAR and go back to it again.
Has anyone else experienced this issue, and more importantly, know how to fix it?
* Well, the Kontakt5 player tells me that the libraries aren't activated, but when I go into the NI Service Center, it shows that they are activated... but that's just a minor annoyance.
