After successfully installing VI Labs True Keys Italian on a PC, I acquired a 2013 MacBookPro. I thought the installation would be easier, but it seems much more difficult. I downloaded the installer, workstation And library, but I cannot find the sound bank file on the Mac. It did tell me to download an app to host it. I downloaded RAR Extract Lite and it shows the sound bank file, but will not open because it is not compressed. Help, please.

Ok, I opened the program on the Mac (I discovered the Launchpad­čą│). Now I see there is no Kawai input, Do I need to download a driver from Kawai? If so, do you know the URL? Thanks!

I'm not familiar with Macs, never had one, but used to help a musician who recently passed away, with his Mac. I was trying to install LibreOffice on it, but couldn't find out how to do it and just decided to forget about it, if I recall correctly. Everything just seems so cryptic on Macs, at least when it comes to installing software.

Did you find out how to navigate to the VI Labs Italian in the UVI Workstation? I remember I had some problems with it when installing the AcousticSamples C7 Grand, and decided to create a link to the sound bank file, and put it in Documents. That way, I could quickly navigate to it. There is a simpler way to go about it, using multis if I recall correctly.

I find it strange that UVI Workstation can't find your Kawai, if it's plugged in. It ought to appear in the Audio/MIDI settings, but on a Mac maybe you need a driver?

Hi TheodorN, the solution was indeed to be found in the audio midi settings of the Mac. It works very well now. It took a little bit of learning to get both the PC and Mac to respond, but well worth it.
Also, no problem, ultimately, with the UVI workstation. Fairly straightforward.

I could not have resolved this on my own. Fortunately, I had help from a member of the Audiobus forum. Even tho that is an iOS platform, the knowledge base is deep. And folks are incredibly helpful
there. I have found members, like Andrew, here that are interested in helping, as well.

OK great it worked out for you. It can pay off to have an account on other forums, though PW is not bad, despite some debates about moderators, and the rightfulness of some of their recent actions.

I've often considered creating accounts on other forums, like vi-control, and KVR audio. Never done so, just don't have that much time to frequent a lot of forums, and having more account names, and passwords to think of and remember, LOL.
