I see two main ways to set up the Kontakt player.
1) 16 midi tracks feeding Kontakt and 1 stereo output, doing all mixing and effects in Kontakt.
2) 16 midi tracks feeding Kontakt and 16 audio outputs feeding 16 sequencer tracks
and doing the mixing and effects, such as any EQ on the 16 output tracks. Though one could still do the mixing and EQing in Kontakt and still use 16 outputs.
Method 2 looks to be more visual with everything out in the open.
Would method 2 tend to use more cpu?
I'm thinking that method 2 would make it easier to freeze individual tracks as and if needed though I am not certain that is true.
How do you do it?
What do you see as the pluses and minuses?
