Maybe one of you has a solution to this. It could be that I am the only one. Perhaps we all have this problem? Either way, I am fed up and either need a fix or I forget about using sampled pianos in Kontakt 2.
What is happening is when I play, say, a treble chord and anything else (even one stinking note) in the bass range, if held down for a bit, notes turn off (possibly the dreaded note stealing problem I've read about?)
It records this way, too. It happens in EVERY piano library I have that uses large samples and is made for Kontakt 2 - which is pretty much all of them.
Akoustic Piano does not do this, but I hate the sound of Akoustic Piano, so forget that. Everything else I have is a library (Vintaudio, PMI, Sampletekk, etc).
I don't think it is their products either. It has happened on SEVERAL of my computers - all fully capable of massive projects - 3ghz processor, 2GB ram and over a terabyte of space and a perfectly robust midi and asio sound system. All of my other synths work great. All of my other sample libraries work fine. However, with most libraries, except for strings, I do not play complex chords. Using EWQLSO Silver or Gold XP in Kontakt 2 DOES NOT show the dreaded note stealing mentioned above. Using KHSO Emerald DOES NOT have this problem either in Kontakt 2 - ONLY THE PIANOS??????????
Has anyone experienced this? Has anyone fixed it? Or am I doomed? I have Pianoteq and it plays perfectly - zero problems. I used the TruePianos demo and it, too, was perfect.
I would love to know other people's experience or problems like this - if any?
