Hello, I have studio one four prime, and I recently purchased a drum pack which interfaces with kontakt (native instruments.) I was told by someone who was helping me on the forum of the drum pack that to access it in studio one I had to go to the side instrument menu and select native instruments and I could find kontakt there. When I go to the side instrument menu, though, nothing in that folder of use, and nothing in the 'external instruments' dropdown either. Just the presonus default presence is available via the presonus dropdown. and selecting 'vendor' does nothing too. Am I missing something? Thanks in advance, y'all.

S1 Prime does not support 3rd party VSTI plugins, all other flavors of S1 do.

As far as external instruments in the browser section on the side, I have never seen any instruments listed there (I have S1 Pro version). I always had to go the Studio One pull down menu (top left of the screen then options and finally external devices. Maybe external instruments and devices are 2 different entities?
