I\'m using GPO / Kontakt player and Cubase SX on Win XP Home. It\'s nice that there are some preset multis but actually very rare that these will correspond to the exact ensemble that I need to use. A current project requires that I have a custom chamber orchestra split over 3 instances of GPO - this is to be used over 5 or so pieces of music (all of which have a guide piano track already) hence I\'d like to be able to save a whole lot of time and create some custom multi instrument setups.
I have tried using the command save instrument within SX but attempting to load these back in causes a system crash. Clearly the existing multis and instruments are in a native Kontact format but there doesn\'t seem to be a save buttom on the Kontact player (maybe they didn\'t have room since the load one is so big).
Please let me know how to save multis without paying a further 250 Euros to get the full version of Kontact....
PS. clearly a workaround in future would be to create a template cubase project with the ensemble already loaded - this doesn\'t really help when I need to bring the ensemble into a project that already has some recorded material in it.
I am by far not an expert on this program nor do I have any experience with cubase because I bought Sonar(I have a very opinionated friend on this issue so I really didnt have a choice, but he does strictly rock music, well different story not for this post) 2 for a decent price, I guess because 3 was just coming out and such. I looked at getting into 3 then I asked myself after reading all the features: do I need all that???? So I think in a way Sonar was sorta overkill for me and I should have just tried to learn the bundled midi Cubase.
Anyway sorry im babbling. When I run GPO so far within sonar, I insert the dxi instance one at a time as needed for what im doing. It seems to auto remember on its own everytime I restart the program and specific midi file which instruments I chose. I remember the first time I did this a pop up came up and asked me a bunch of options for the project that I had to check or not check. Maybe this told it to remember I dont know. Maybe there is an option in your Cubase that does the same and has it remember a setup I dont know.
I hope im of any help at all.
Thanks for the reply... Cubase does indeed remember the settings for any virtual instruments adn/or fx used on a project - hence my suggested workaround. What I want to know is can Kontact Player save it\'s own .nkm files?
