For quite a while I've used Kontakt instead of the supplied Kompakt to host the various instruments of the EWQLSO across 4 slave computers controlled by one master computer using FX Teleport, for the following reasons:
1-It will hold 16 separate 'instruments', which means 5 instruments in the EW library (5 x 3 mic positions = 15). Kompakt only has 8 spaces so you can only load 2 full instruments (why they didn't make it 9!) This means you don't have to load as many instances of Kontakt as you would Kompakt for the same number of instruments you want to load in your song.
2- You can reduce the number of outputs in Kontakt to just one stereo pair, which shows up in your sequencer mixer. In Kompakt, apparently there is no way to do this, or so I've been told (if anyone does know, I'd appreciate a reply) so you have 8 stereo outputs per instance of Kompakt. This adds up to an incredible number of outputs in your mixer, which I can't seem to delete.
The problem that I've been having with using Kontakt (Kompakt doesn't suffer from this) is this: when I load several instances of Kontakt on the first slave machine, all of the sounds play fine. As soon as I go to another slave and load some sounds in other instances of Kontakt through FX teleport, the sounds on the first slave don't play properly. They cut out after about 1 second and then the release part of the sample plays when I lift the key. The only way to solve the problem is to re-load all of the instruments (or multis) on every machine which is very time consuming.
Either I have to figure out why Kontakt is doing this, or I have to figure out a way of reducing the number of outputs in Kompakt.
Is anyone else had this problem and do you know of any solutions?
