MIDI Issues - Sonar X3 Producer and Komplete Audio 6 MK2

Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction with a problem I'm having.

I've used Sonar X3  Producer with Native Instruments Komplete Audio 6 for a few years quite happily, and often connect my Yamaha midi keyboard to my Komplete Audio 6  interface, in order to play virtual instruments live through Sonar. It still works fine now.

Recently I treated myself to the new Komplete Audio 6 Mk 2. Initially I had some audio signal latency problems, which I managed to fix.

However I'm still having problems with playing virtual instruments through my Yamaha keyboard. Although I've made sure the latest driver and firmware update is installed, I can now only play one note at a time when using the Mk 2, and either Sonar or the interface also thinks the note is playing forever. I can see that from the virtual representation of the on -screen keyboard that the key is still being held down, when it isn't. If I press the key on the virtual keyboard curing my cursor, it works fine, but not if I generate the signal from my external Yamaha keyboard - which is no good for playing in live time. 

I'm sure there must be an easy way round this. I've rarely bought anything that didn't have to be tweaked or reconfigured before it worked perfectly, so where there's a will, there's usually a way - this one has me stumped. I've tried changing midi cables and re-installing the driver but no luck.

Does anyone have any ideas please?

Thanks in advance.

Is this affecting all soft synths? If you record MIDI do the notes end as expected? In other words, is the problem with the messages coming in from the keyboard/interface, or is the way a particular instrument is responding? If it's all instruments, and recorded notes don't end, you can install a MIDI port monitor like MIDI-OX to see what's coming in. MIDI-OX is an ancient free MIDI monitor utility. I haven't used it for quite some time, myself. There might well be something newer out there that's better/easier /prettier.

Thanks for getting back to me David. It's all the soft synths. After I posted here I found a Native Instruments forum, and it seems a lot of people are having midi in issues with the MK 2 interface. Appears that unlike the original interface, the MK2 version of the interface doesn't work well with non-Native Instrument brand midi-keyboards.  The people who had already posted on the Native Instruments forum were complaining they get no sound at all from their midi in, so although I can get one note out of it, it's probably part of the same problem.
