Just downloaded and installed the new, updated NI Kontakt player on my Mac G5 2x2.3/10.4.8.
Everything works smoothly. Except: no sound at all!
Yes, MIDI is incoming and the MIDI indicator flickers, CPU and disk acitivity meters move (but not the audio level meters), the correct audio output is selected, I've kicked up CC#11 and seen the MIDI indicator respond, I've tried Strad 1.08 and 2.01 both.
No sound, period.
Since everything else works, I assume I don't have to re-authorize?
And guess what? Both Strads work just fine in my Kontakt 2.1.1 (I haven't dared go to 2.2 since my current setup works quite well).
