On the Violins page, touching the players or Ripieno buttons, or the Vibrato Intensity slider, will crash Kontakt. Other sliders, or even switching to modwheel vibrato, do not crash.

This does not happen on Viola, Cello or Bass pages.

I temporarily retrograded to Kontakt 5.6.6 (the last version to provide an installer) and the problem disappeared.

So, while this is clearly Kontakt's fault, there is something different in the Violin page compared with the other pages.

On VI Control, two other posters (so far) have had the same problem,
one on a Mac.

KH has an update now where Spotlight does work with Kontakt 5.8. He refers to it as a workaround so I guess that implies that the underlying problem is still with Kontakt.
On the site scroll down on the Spotlight page to Product Features> Update> Download the new instruments (they are just nki's not samples).
