For Kontakt and Kontakt player libraries, you have the ability to add and control separate patches within one Instance of Kontakt. This can prove useful when looking for ways to reduce Ram use. Below is a tutorial on how to configure Multi Outputs in FL Studio.
- Launch Kontakt and assign it to a Mixer Insert track. You may want to rename the Mixer Insert track so that It is easier to identify later on.
- Add the specific patches you would like to use, one by one.
- In the Outputs section of Kontakt, select the 'Presets / Batch Configuration' button, and choose 'Batch Functions' > 'Clear output section and create one individual channel for each loaded instrument' - This will create individual stereo output channels for each patch that you have loaded in your current instance of Kontakt.
- Press the cog icon in the Kontakt Plugin Wrapper, navigate to the Plugin Wrapper Settings tab and set the Midi Input Port to 0.
- While in the Kontakt Wrapper, select the Processing tab, and assign each output offset in the Connections section, corresponding with the number of Instruments you have loaded in this instance of Kontakt.
I.e., If you have 4 Instruments loaded, you will be setting up outputs 1-4, with each output increasing by a desired number.
The number you select for each of these will determine how far away from the original Kontakt channel your instrument patch will sit on the mixer (I.e. if the Kontakt channel is set to Mixer Insert 1 and you offset one of your instruments by 1, the Instrument patch will be located on Mixer Insert 2).
- Navigate to the FL Studio Sequencer and add an individual instance of the Midi Out plugin for each patch you have loaded in Kontakt. Set each instance to have a channel number, corresponding with the order of each patch in Kontakt (e.g. Channel 2 will set the Midi Out to control the second patch loaded in Kontakt).
You should now be able to use each midi channel to control the individual patches you connected them to.
Additionally, you can rename each Midi Channel to reflect the name of the corresponding Kontakt patch.
