Using Musescore with Kontakt Player 2

Posted by Jarrod Bell (/en/user/586321) on May 1, 2016 - 2:34am

Is there a way to use Kontakt Player 2 and Garritan Personal Orchestra with musescore? The other helps that I
have found have not really worked. I can't get kontakt player to see LoopBe Internal MIDI as "on". Screen shot

Can you start MuseScore, make sure that Jack MIDI is selected in Preferences > I/O, and then click the
"connect" button in "Jack Audio Connection Kit" window (top left in your screenshot). If you do so, and Jack is
configured correctly, then you should see Mscore in the MIDI tab and you should be able to connect it to

Thanks for the help but I still could not get it to work. I think there might be an issue with the LoopBe?
Kontakt says it is "off"

I don't have Kontakt Player 2 or Garittan. I downloaded Kontakt Player 5 (free) and the "KONTAKT
FACTORY SELECTION" library. I'm on Windows 8.1.
Tools you need
* MuseScore 2.0.3
* Jack and JackCtl
* Carla for windows ( (I took the 32bit). Carla is a Jack
enabled to MuseScore will talk to Carla via Jack, no need for virtual cable like loopbe.
* Kontakt Player 5 and the factory selelection library

* Make sure that you can play with the default synth. Load a score, press play, you should head
* Go to Edit > Preferences > IO. Choose Jack (make sure that Audio and MIDI are ticked)
* Quit MuseScore

* Install Jack
* Run Jack Control and make sure that the setup parameters look like the following. The server
prefix is important. jackd -S -R -X winmme .

Just with this, you should be able to play the MuseScore playback through Jack. Meaning MuseScore
will use the default soundfont and its default synthesizer but it will send the audio to Jack and the
Jack will send it to the system. To try this, Run MuseScore, then in Jack Ctl, click on connect and
connect the mscore outputs to the system playback. Press play in MuseScore or in Jack ctrl and
playback should start.

* Install Kontakt, Install the sound library. During the installation, take note where the VST are

* Install Carla and run it
* Go to Settings > Configure Carla > Paths. Choose VST and make sure the path to Kontakt vst is in.
* Restart carla. Press Add plugin, look for Kontakt and double click the on with 8 output for
* In Carla, switch to he patchbay view and link everything like the following. You send the carla midi
in to Kontakt and Kontakt to the audio output of carla.

* switch back to the rack tab and click the cog icon, it should display Kontakt UI. Press Add library
and load the library you want to use.

Jack again
In jack, make sure MuseScore talks to Carla in MIDI and Carla talks to System playback in Audio.
Press play in MuseScore, you should now hear Kontakt playing.

Please note that if you use Carla 32bit you are currently limited to 32bit VST plugins.
If you have 64 bit plugins in your library then you will also need Carla 64bit.
The developer is working on 32<>64 bit bridging, but to my knowledge hasn't yet completed it
for Windows, although I haven't checked on development this month.
