Hello everyone. I am extremely frustrated to say the least. I cannot figure out how to set up a multi instrument in Kontakt Player 2 and Logic Pro 8. I have searched the forum for hours and found things that looked like they should work, but I MUST be missing something. So here goes...
I start with a blank project then select one Software Instrument. I go to the box under the I/O and select Kontakt Player 2 > Multi Output (16xStereo). I clicked on outputs in the Kontakt Player and hit "Make Default" then closed Logic and reopened it.
I then selected the same Mutli Kontakt and loaded my instruments. Lets say I start with Violins and Cellos. In the Arrange Window I have 2 tracks, both from the same Kontakt Player. The Violins are MIDI Channel 1 and the Cellos MIDI Channel 2. Now, what do I do next because this is what I did so far:
Made the Output in the actual Kontakt Player for the Violins 3-4 and the Cellos 5-6 (I remember someone saying don't use 1-2 for some reason but am not sure why). I went to the Mixer Window and hit the "+" to add 2 Stereo Aux Channels. I then made the input of the first Aux Channel "KontaktPla 3-4" and the second Aux Channel's input "KontaktPla 5-6." This linked them in the Mixer to "Inst 1" as I though it should (only in the "Single" view). But, no matter what I do the sound still skips the Aux Channels and goes to Out 1-2.
What am I doing wrong? I'm really getting tired of loading separate Kontakt Players for every instrument. I can't EQ one Kontakt Player if I have all the strings running through one EQ. If I raise the low end for the Violins a tad it gets mushy because of the Bass and so forth.
What am I doing wrong? I feel like I've tried everything, but I can't get it to work. PLEASE HELP ME!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(I'm really not angry, just depressed and confused )
