Quick Update:*Waving* HHheeey You! What’s been up? I had to handle the school business over the last 2 weeks. Yes, I will finally finish my degree after a long time away from college. I had a hard time deciding what my major would be. I already have two years in communications, with a secondary in Art. I know some are surprised, but I didn’t go with music as my 1st choice. I am really into the whole web atmosphere, as well as music. I will study Web Design and Interactive Media at Art Institute, and take a few course through point Blank Music Production School. I figured this is a win win for all of us. I’ll be able to upgrade my site, help you with yours,makes apps, and do my music..woo hoo words can’t describe how happy I am today…Expect wonderful changes here as I learn..:)……….
I’ve been meaning to share this with you since I upgraded to Maschine 1.7…..
I had a time loading 1.7, as well as moving my Kore 2 content. I installed Maschine on my second hard drive instead of main c drive. The second drive failed. Later i re-installed on the main drive. NI suggest you load everything on one drive (the c drive), but for some, it may be better to place content on different drive. If you move content after initial installation (ex:second drive fails etc.),your software will search 1st database location.
In my case, when it came time to upgrade, the software searched for the “D:” drive, which I no longer had connected. No matter what I tried I got the error:\”invalid drive d\”. Along with upgrading Maschine, I also needed to move my Kore Player 2 Sample Content.
There are two ways to fix this.
1.Replace faulty drive, and do a new install maschine/content, making sure the drive letter stays the same as before.
2.Install Maschine or Content on “C:” .Change the directory path by going to the Windows registry by typing “regedit” in the Search bar located in the
Navigate to :
Make sure the “InstallDir” key is correct, and if not modify it to reflect the
correct path of the Maschine.(or drive installed Maschine)
For other NI Software Sample Content
Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\NativeInstruments\Kore 2\Kore 2 Sample Content\
Make sure “ContentDir” key is correct,and if not modify it to reflect correct path of Sample Content on your C: drive. (or which ever drive u placed content)
Here is what my corrected “ContentDir” path looks like:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Native Instruments\Kore 2\Kore 2 Sample Content\
Now everything is working smooth…I know this is a little techy, so if you have any questions hit me up in the comment section…
Happy Beat Making To All!~
Pz Til Later…
