Problem with sounds in Absynth5

Post by aklisiewicz » Fri Dec 15, 2017 6:41 am

I purchased several external libraries for Absynth5 i.e like this one: https://www.adsrsounds.com/product/pres ... nth-atmos/
Some of them work fine but 3 out of 5 do not work and I do not understand why. I can't get any sounds. I'm kinda not very familiar fith Absynth.
Any ideas ?

Have you updated Absynth?

That can be very important.

I use KOMPLETE KONTROL-11, so everything is managed by NI Native Access software. It shows everything is up to date.

Might be worth asking on the Native Instumnt forums too :wink:

I would try to reinstall the package by following the instructions with extreme care.

Its easy to miss a step.

Contact the vendor /ask about an update?

Can you load the patches? I have had issues in the past with Absynth libraries being installed to the wrong path on my hard drive.

Some of the Libs I purchased came as ZIP files with no specific instruction for installation. I believe in Absynth5 the only thing one neds to do is to include the new path with the preset files and rebuild the dB. I use Windows10 so the way the programs, libs and other stuff is located is even more confusing than it was in the past. Microsoft does terrible job on this. Unfortunately NI and others follow their structure of locating the files (although they do not have to). This makes huge confusion.
Because my system drive is not very big (I use 256 Gig M.2-SSD) I store all sound files on my D: drive. I also have ProgramFiles on D: drive to save some spaced on my C: drive so some Apps are installed on D:/ProgramFiles. This shold not matter though if Absynth has proper library path added to the Options - right ?
