I'm new here and I admire the community and the effort you put into helping one another. It's definitely one of the friendliest places around and it's great being a part of it.
I am currently in a situation I haven't been in before and I was wondering if anyone could provide some insight and help as I have spent the last six hours Googling around and couldn't find much useful info.
I have upgraded my system to 64-bit with Windows XP x64 and I need to set up Kontakt 2 to work in standalone mode with Sonar 7 64-bit.
I will be using MIDI Yoke to connect the DAW to K2 and my RME 9632's TotalMix to loopback the audio back to the sequencer.
I was wondering if anyone here could tell me how to set up Kontakt 2 to work in standalone mode, what is it I have to do, what do I have to keep in mind, basically the standalone setup 101 with some basic explanations.
I have found some info on K2 standalone operation in x64 here, but I'm still in the dark about how to really do it.
If someone could also provide a link to a graphic presentation of the signal flow and all of the workings, I would be really grateful. I know there are a lot of people wondering the same thing I do, so it would be great to have Google pop up a page explaining the basics of setting up VSTi players to work with DAWs as standalones, especially with 64-bit enviroments being more and more accepted in the music community.
I'm sorry for such a newbie request, but I always used the plug-in mode and am completely new to all this, so I more or less have no idea what to do.
What I'm most concerned about are the MIDI and audio channel configuration and the dangers of unwanted MIDI feedback, even though I've read RME has feedback prevention programming.
Thank you very much in advance.
