Kontakt Multi Individual Volume Work-through
Jun 30th, 2009, 06:26
My dear friends, This may be obvious to some of you, but it was not for me, and therefore may be unclear to others. This is how I created a Kontakt multi instruments and managed to control the volume, panning and other controls on the individual instruments: 1. I created a new soft inst multi 2. assigned kontakt 16 stereo out to it. 3. assigned in kontakt the different output channels 4. added Aux channels in the mixer Now, leave the volume in Logic alone. You will notice, if you try to use it, that it only has affect on the first instrument instance and only on the global volume control of Kontakt, but we want to change the volume WITHIN kontakt through automation on the individual channels/instances. to do that: 5. In kontakt click on the auto tab - Midi Automation Here is a list of midi controllers that can be assigned to any knob or fader within Kontakt. Select, for instance, cc 0 and drag and drop it onto the first instrument's volume fader. 6. open the corresponding channel piano roll in Logic and open the automation view. There do NOT use volume to automate your instrument's volume. Remember, it only affects the global volume of the channel (ie Kontakt) click on the small arrow on the left and select "other..." 7. select channel 0 and write your automation Voila. Hope this helps who ever googles it. Hi Rounik, long time no chat :) Am I stating the obvious?
