It's been sometime since I've been here. I've been away from the audio world for a while. Please excuse this novice
question (as I continue to read the manual).
I'm using Kontakt 3.5 (waiting for 4 to be release here in the US) in Nuendo 5.1. I have Kontakt open with a full
string ensemble from EW Gold XP Pro. Moving the Mod Wheel back and forth gets no response.
I can't seem to remember how (or where to go) to to make the Mod Wheel act as a volume controller.
In the top left hand corner of Kontakt there are a set of tabs labelled "Files, Libraries, Database ... ".
You need to be on the "Auto[mation]" tab, and then Midi Automation. Just drag the CC number you want to use over the control (fader or knob) of your instruments control panel.
Or you can right mouse click on the item you want to automate, click "Learn CC" and then send the desired CC by sendign it from you DAW or twiddling a hardware controller.
Nearly everything can be automated in this way.
I have found the area you spoke of. When I try and drag CC #7 over to the mod wheel, it won't let me.
Where do I need to drag this to?
In earlier versions of Kontakt, I thought I was able to open the sampler's tool area, click on the "Mod" button, scroll
down to Volume and select that to get it to work. But I don't see that now.
You should be able just drag it over whichever control on the instrument's instrument panel you want. But it looks like you can do something similar in the mod area as you describe.
I think it does depend on exactly what programming "object type" they have used in the instrument's script as to whether you can automate a particular control, but I don't have EW myself to check it out for you.
