Hi again @TectonicBeats
Just to update you, I had a short chat with support pointing them to this and it's also a weird issue for them
On my end, I've been testing Kick 2 under FL 20 latest trial again and still no way to reproduce that problem, I've also seen that you've already reported this to Image Line Support and that they asked you to contact the plugin manufacturer.
I think we need to narrow the scope of investigation here, in your short video I could see that you are running Kick 2 inside a project with a few other tracks, plugins...etc.
Could you please try to just open a new empty project and load only one instance of Kick 2 with nothing else and check if the problem is still happening ?
I know that you've been through the uninstall/install of Kick 2 v1.1.1 already, but what has been done to FL Studio actually ? You mentioned that the computer was reset, but that's also not very clear what was done.
We have to be sure that your Win 10 is up to date with all Microsoft Updates and that you're also using the latest version of FL Studio v 18.104.22.1687 from Image Line. https://www.image-line.com/downloads/flstudiodownload.html
Thinking about what could be wrong, it could be FL Studio plugin cache getting corrupted after the plugin update & the new install. It would really be nice if you could start as fresh as possible, considering at least cleaning FL studio database & plugin cache but even better a complete FL studio clean install process.
Here are some links I found on Image Line support site that might help to perform those steps, but again what ever you do, the first thing is to have Win 10 Up to Date with latest updates.
And starting any test with a single track project just with Kick 2 v.1.1.1, even download a fresh .zip file from your Sonic Academy account to avoid any corrupted archive, you never know
It might sound cumbersome & tedious to do, but honestly at this point we are targeting Win 10, FL 20 & Kick 2 Plugin as potential source of this issue, we need to narrow this, and since Kick 2 doesn't have a VST3 version, it's likely that Image Line Support will send you back here for issue, so IMHO, it's a good thing to start as clean as you can now.
So please backup projects, presets and what you need and try to take it from the ground up :
- WIndows up to date
- Manual uninstall of FL 20 & Kick 2 ( again )
- Clean you Win 10 Registry ( CCleaner ) and restart computer
- Fresh downloads of FL 20 & Kick 2
- Fresh install of FL 20 ( restart computer after )
- Fresh install of Kick 2 and full Plugins scan in FL
- Simple track test project, then you could test further with your previous project or equivalent
I'll browse the forums during the week end, so do not hesitate to reach out if needed
