NKS?
« on: May 19, 2019, 06:04:32 pm »
Are there any plans to make AL4 NKS? If not, please add. Us Komplete Kontrol users would be grateful. Hopefully I'm not the only one.
The groove baby, the groove...

Hi all,

You can allready open Analog Lab inside Komplete Kontrol through the top panel application load.

If you wan't to use NKS, then you can allready just save the presets as NKS files through Komplete Kontrol yourself. Then they will appear in Komplete Kontrols browser, but they will not appear in Arturias individual applications, just like Arturias own will. I believe you also can create you own artwork. (Am i wrong? Are there more to it?) I guess this what's done in this packs that include AL4 NKS library: https://freelancesoundlabs.com/index.php/downloads/komplete-kontrol-vst-packs
I don't know about freelancesoundlabs, so this is not a recommendation. I've just heard about this. I don't know if they have Arturias permisson to do this, as i guess they need that. Perhaps Arturia will tell? If Arturia don't know about this, then now they do, if they read this.
I would save the NKS presets i need my self, but mainly keep Arturias preset system fully functional as i'm a VC owner.  Keeping it inside Arturias system should also give the best possibilty to keep it future proof.
Arturia also have controllers that have speciel functions for their software applications.

When it come to NKS presets, then the problem is how to do this without destroying Arturias own powerful preset system where V-Collection and Analog Lab is very integrated. Analog Lab use the individual VC applications presets. And presets saved in AL is availble for the individual applictions. That's very good. How to add NKS without destroying Arturias own preset system and functionality between AL and VC applications? That's the challenge, and i assume that's why AL does'nt have NKS today by default. How would you solve this without a fusion between different developers systems, so they are compatible with each other and does'nt require a speciel set of presets for each system? Can't tell if Arturia can do this alone.

I don't think Arturia shall destroy the powerful preset integration they have, just to deliever NKS for AL alone. So unless there is a way for you as a Komplete Kontrol user to select to open either the individual application ot AL, then Arturia should not deliver NKS for AL. Please keep in mind, that beside the new VC7 applications, then the individual applications do have NKS allready, and i assume the new applications also will get some.
The AL Multi presets may be another thing.

It can't be right, that Arturia should destroy a well working powerful preset integration between AL and VC and thus make it bad for VC owners too, just to deliever NKS. It cost to make NKS, and NKS users allready can make things work like explained above.

I would also prefere other solutions than Komplete Kontrol for visually handicapped users.

wow...
I donít see why integrating one type of presets should necessarily destroy another, and I even thought, given the NKS integration of individual applications, that the work to add it to AL was already half done.
Given the vehemence of your words, I must have it all wrong.
So I'd like to thank you for putting my mind back together.
All I have to do now is get my visual impairment treated.

I wish you all a good night.
Peace
