I'm pretty tired right now so I am going to be sincere and brief in relaying my experiences with this nice lib.
I've had Diva for about a week now and successfully been able to use a couple of the samples in the music for our musical. It's great, and I admittedly need more time to explore the possibilities in depth. However, I think it only fair that I mention I haven't been able to use out of the bundle anything more than Diva. Diva by design and extended are so far useless. Full Kontakt 18.104.22.168 does not see the contents of the folders at all. I have been unable to get on the forum to find help or download any existing patches for problems that may be or are similar to mine. Mind you, this is no complaint but mostly a plea for a solution to this ridiculous predicament.
So I ask, anyone who received their copy of Diva, Diva by Design, and Extended, have you had experienced similar problems and if so where there any solutions on the Bela forum? I cannot log on still to this day to read for myself. I was told I am logged on but my screen I always get the prompt to log in over and over and over.
Like I said in the opening of this post. I am very tired so I will be on my way.
Thanks for any info.
Alan and I both are trying to help you out. The best way for us to help you is for you to give us a complete list of what is not working and the error that follows. DIVA is about a basic as you can get - unzip to one location and go.
You can email myself or Alan direct.
PS. Did your try singing on with the new password I gave you? Did that help?

About a year ago I had a Tascam FW 1840 and tried to get the unit installed on my PC. Windows XP would not intall the Tascam discs. To make a long story short, I called Tascam USA, I emailed them several times, I called them again and continuously left message after message, and finally I wrote to them snail mail. After waiting a month and no replies in either path, I decided to list the unit on Ebay and rid myself of the headache. Now get this, two full months after the last correspondence and AFTER I sold it, they finally answered with, "Please state the nature of your problem." My reply back was simply, I have no more problem I sold the unit and bought ProTools Le 002, thank you.
I am so happy that there are people such as Frank and Gary and their team members as Alan that care enough about their products to actually take the time to make it right for everyone and not just a select few!
This morning, Alan took the time to call me and the man helped me find out what I was doing wrong and what needed to make it right! Alan is one of the greatest persons I ever had the pleasure to know and talk with. He never gets frustrated with my shortcomings and stays calm, and well, just a fantastic help! Frank must be proud to have him on his team. Gary and Frank have the best damn people on their teams backing everything with such skill and knowledge its uncanny!
To end, Alan showed me how to open the samples for kontakt to see in Extended. I am playing with them now and Frank, what the heck were you thinking man THESE ARE GREAT! Is this just new to my ears or did you do something to up the quality of the voices in Extended? I am going to have a blast with these along with my GPO, and GOSlite!
No words can express my sincere appreciation for taking the time in helping me get this straighten out.
I'll say this, since I've been with this forum it has been very uplifting to be a member. If this were around when I was studying music in college my life wouldn't had been so complicated.
I'm getting off track here. Need more coffee.
Diva and GPO are the best! Can't wait for the choirs to come out! What a package they will make!!
Thanks Frank and a special thanks to Alan for the call this morning. Sorry I was still half asleep....
Thanks for the super kind words, I'm just glad you can finally use the library, I know how frustrating it gets some time when these things don't go smoothly with either computer problems or what have you.
Glad you're enjoying the library - time to make some more great music!
