First, congrats on the release of the K2 Player for GPO. Installed/authorized o.k... and nice to see GPO and Strad 2 side by side inside the Player (and, all being well, Gofriller also in a few days time!).
BUT.. here's the problem..
I (as will be the case for most people), also have the original GPO Player installed (Mac here).
The Library (audio) files for the original version (.nks) are installed on an external disk, in a folder named "GPO Library". For each .nks file, there is an accompanying .nkc file (small).
When I installed the new KP2 version, I opted to install its Library Folder next to the original, so I now have "GPO Library", and "GPO KP2 Library" side by side. The GPO KP2 folder contains, among other things, the small .nkc files, but not the .nks files (the actual audio).. which seems perfectly normal to me .
This means that, whenever I try to load a GPO Instrument into the K2 Player, I get the non-surprising "Samples Missing" dialog. I can easily navigate to the original GPO Library folder, and eventually load the samples.
But this means I shall have to resave absolutely every Instrument in the GPO KP2 Instrument library!
Here are my options..
1) Do what I have just described (really don't want to have to do that!)
2) Move the .nks files into the GPO KP2 Library folder (which will work, but now any previous projects using the original GPO .. or indeed the full Konatkt 1 or 2.. will not find the samples)
3) Copy the .nks files into the GPO KP2 Library folder (unnecessary waste of disk space!.. Although this does seem to be the solution I shall choose, at least for the time being)
4) Move all the other content from the GPO KP2 Library folder into the original GPO Library folder (and redirect KP2 in the Instrument "Info" dialog).
But that would mean overwriting the original .nkc files, and (because I have no idea what those files actually do!), I don't know if that would make things no longer work in the original GPO Player.
I optimistically tried placing aliases ("shortcuts" for PC folks ) of the .nks files in the GPO KP2 Library folder.. but that didn't work. This is a pity, because that would have been the ideal solution.
What is the recommended procedure, please?
