Studio One 5.1 Update now crashing every time I enable Komplete Kontrol plugins from template or previous songs

asked Oct 26, 2020 in Studio One 5 by justindepew (250 points)

After updating to the new version 5.1, my sessions now crash when ever I try to enable an instrument track with an instance of Komplete Kontrol. I am able to use other plugins and add new instances of Komplete Kontrol, but any previous instance of KK will crash when I attempt to enable them. I have made no changes to the Native Instruments libraries, but all instances from my template or songs previously made will crash.

I can not locate a 5.0 version download and now can not use my composing template or work on previous songs made with virtual instruments. I hope this is a bug that can be fixed, please help!!

So I moved all the tracks (like 20) outside of the folder and did a bulk enable and that worked. This is a pretty annoying bug to have to do this workaround. Hopefully, it's easy to fix since it seems related to folders.

So one thing that seems to help is to ensure that the option "Instrument input follows selection" is enabled. I don't know why but it crashes less. It doesn't 100% fix it but it does lessen the amount of crashes.

I've gotten in the habit now of saving every time I enable/disable a track. It's pretty annoying and I hope this gets fixed soon.

I'm new to Studio One and fairly new to Komplete Kontrol, but Studio One 5 is dropping out ONLY when I have Komplete Kontrol logged in as Input keyboard.  Which means KK is running in the background within Studio One.  If I leave KK out of activation when starting up Studio then there are no crashes, so for whatever reason my logic says the crashes have to do with KK.  I hope Presonus does something about this or KK also.  Studio One 5 runs beautifully without KK but it is my keyboard and input instrument so it needs KK. Help.

Same issues, Studio One is now basically unusable and I can't open ANY of my previous work!!! Totally unacceptable.
