No im not seeing it under the vsti. I felt like i made some sort of progress though as now the instruments i downloaded are now equipped in the Kontakt player. Except the only way i know this is by opening the Kontakt player icon on my desktop. Other wise i cannot find it in Reaper under the vst or vsti. I went back and re-dragged/dropped/copied all the files where i thought they belong (to the best of my knowledge), i cleared cache and rescanned; this time it took a little longer as i saw it scanning more items now but i still dont see Kontakt anywhere in Reaper. Though this is for another topic, i should be asking these questions on either the Kontakt forum or Reaper forum. I appreciate all your help, but i feel embarrassed asking for more help since this thread isnt about reaper/kontakt. You dont need to help if you dont want to but i thank you!
