I’m using the Native Instruments Mk-2 61 keyboard for a while now (Keyboards : Komplete Kontrol S49 / S61 | Komplete).
The software is using the BomeMIDI driver in order to communicate with the Ableton Live DAW.
For quite a few months to years now I’m experiencing big troubles with the communication of my Komplete Kontrol DAW port. Sometimes this device doesn’t show up in the Device manager. Sometimes this DAW port is missing in Ableton Live.
I’m talking with the Native Instruments support for quite a while now and they did a lot of investigation of my system and reinstalling of drivers and software applications. Nothing really works well.
The only time I can make sure that the BomeMIDI connection with the DAW port of my MK-2 keyboard and Ableton Live really works all the time is after directly starting Windows and having the keyboard connected to USB PRIOR than Windows start. If I connect the keyboard some time after Windows has already started sometimes Ableton Live doesn’t recognize the keyboard.
I’m not sure whether this problem is BomeMIDI related, whether it’s NIHostIntegrationAgent related that also is needed for the communication with the keyboards or whether there’s some mistake in Windows or in my Ableton Live 10 (for example with the script that Native Instruments has provided for the keyboard).
Thanks for any help and any ideas how I could get my Mk-2 keyboard to work with Ableton Live again! Interestingly everything works for controlling the Komplete Kontrol software within or outside Ableton Live. But controlling the DAW pretty often is not working when I connect the keyboard via USB after Windows has run quite a bit of time. Thank you!
