I have been having trouble getting the ProjectSam Free Orchestra to work in Kontakt Player (it is designed to work with Kontakt 6 and Kontakt 6 Player).
It works fine as a standalone and works in Band In A Box, but in RealBand there is no sound most of the time (weirdly, occasionally some of the instruments will work for a while, then stop). I have tried the 32-bit and 64-bit Kontakt Player with the same results. (I am using J-Bridge).
MY QUESTION: Is it possible to link the standalone version of Kontakt Player 6 to RealBand so that I can use the Free Orchestra sounds?
I seem to remember Pipeline talking about a VST host some time back.
I use Kontakt 5 and Kontakt 6 Player all the time in RB (the only problem I have is when I open the VSTI/DXi Synth panel while using Kontakt’s Session Guitarist Electric Sunburst, I have to reset the tempo because the Guitar jumps to the half-tempo setting.
Thanks in advance,
Mike
If anyone wants to try and replicate the issue, the free download is available at:

I use the LoopBe1 midi driver, free download just google it. You set it up as the output midi driver for RealBand and open the stand alone Kontakt and set LoopBe1 as the input driver to Kontakt. Depending on you audio setup you may need to change the real band audio driver so that Kontakt can run audio. My setup is such that RealBand and Kontakt would conflict since they use the same audio driver on my system. I just use something other than ASIO with RealBand and then let Kontakt have the ASIO driver for my interface.
Anyway, once you have Kontakt open you can then load any instruments you want there, make sure the channels are setup correctly so the right midi goes to the right instrument and viola you have it.

hi

Yes as above use different audio drivers for Kontakt and Real band if using Asio
Also use the same bit rate for both programs if pos.

You may find this old post of mine helpful with Kontakt in Realband

Thanks etcjoe.
I downloaded LoopBe1 midi driver and set it up as the output midi driver for RealBand. But I'm not sure how to set LoopBe1 as the input driver to Kontakt 6 Player. My RealBand audio driver is set to MME. What happens with other non-Kontakt tracks in my RealBand file?

Thanks for this Mike.
Re bitrate:I'm not sure if I can change too many settings in Kontakt Player compared to Kontakt.
I'm working my way through your comprehensive RealBand post. Amazing info.
Thanks again,
Mike
