Sorry to have to post again - but unless I'm being really stupid, I can't see a way how to do this.
Using sonar, I have 6 midi tracks which need choirs to sing words on - although two of them have only 1 word per track. The reason being that the text at the point where the extra track is needed moves at a different speed ie. singing the word over 5 notes instead of 3 (hope that makes sense).
I can load 3 instances of Kontakt as a plugin in sonar (I need to use the Kontakt multis due to range limitations otherwise), any more and the system crashes, presumably due to lack of RAM (1.5GB).
I guess each track needs it's own Kontakt assigned to it so that the mod wheel works properly - so that it only changes the volume of one part if, for instance the sopranos crescendo whilst the altos diminuendo. This setup would need an instance of Kontakt for sops and other one for alts. Correct?
Is there a way around having to use 6 instances of Kontakt as plugins in sonar - which my system can't do anyway? I know I can go through each part at a time but this is no good for balancing the tracks for the final mix. If there is a way, can you explain it slowly for me - I am a total newbie to Kontakt and haven't totally got to grips with it yet.
I hope this isn't going over old ground too much - Sam at EW said something about using seperate virtual ports in Kontakt, but how do I load 20 instruments when midi only allows for 16?
Any help would be very greatly appreciated!
