I’m having a frustrating issue with Kick2. For some reason it happens after I save all my settings for click 1,2, and 3 then close. Once I reopen Kick2 the settings do not save. Click one will show as the volume being off and I have to readjust everything to the way it was before, but can never get it the same. What is the issue?
what version of KICK 2 are you running / OS Version and DAW version?
It’s for OS and yes running it through Ableton
apologies for the confusion, i need to know
a) Operating System version number
b) Ableton Live version number
c) Kick 2 version number
macOS Sierra 10.12.6
Ableton Live 10 Standard
I want to also add that the WAV form disappears as well on both saved settings and the presets. When scrolling through and selecting a preset the WAV form appears briefly then disappears. It’s as though the pitch keeps resetting into something completely different. Same thing happens with my saved settings. I will set a particular pitch to the WAV form and save, but then when I close and reopen the pitch is for whatever reason reset to a completely different setting. The plugin is very buggy at the moment and I don’t know if it’s something I’m doing or if it’s a problem with the plugin itself.
There’s too many weird behaviour results for being a problem with the plugin itself in my opinion.
Are you up to date with latest Live 10.0.2 version btw ? It could be that your plugins cache got corrupted in Live, I would suggest you 2 things :
Do a clean uninstall of Kick 2 using a tool like AppDelete ( you want to be sure to remove the installed directory, all plugins aax, au, vst and some .plist files in user preferences… that’s why an clean uninstaller app is handy.
Then refer to this topic by Ableton in order to reset Live https://help.ableton.com/hc/en-us/articles/209070609-How-to-reset-Live
Finally perform a new installation of Kick 2 1.05 , to exclude any corrupted file form the start download a fresh .zip from your SA account and use a trusty unarchiver tool like the free Keka.
Cleaning MacOS caches & repairing files permission is also something good to do once a while.
Yes it’s 10.0.2. I downloaded Kick2 during the Ableton Live 10 trial platform, then bought the license for 10 Live Standard last week. Is that maybe why it’s so glitchy? In any case I will try your suggestions.
Hmmm… Yes, that could be a reason, but normally, the trial version is the same as the licensed one, it’s just a matter of authorisation as what I know. If you still get this behaviour after resetting Live, then it would be good to uninstall the version you used during the trial and reinstall a fresh Live Standard downloaded from your Ableton account.
You could refer to this topic for a clean uninstall of Live : https://help.ableton.com/hc/en-us/articles/115001172024-Uninstalling-Live-1-9-completely-Mac-
I know it’s a bit of a pain, but the best way to troubleshoot this is to be sure to start right. MacOS can be sometimes very tricky as well, I hope it won’t be the case.
Let us know how things goes after Live & Kick 2 clean uninstall/reinstall.
So turns out this has all been a bug in LIVE 10
It’s resolved in the latest live 10.0.3 beta- hopefully they’ll push a fix out.
You can try the vst rather than the au to see if that helps
