Logic Pro 9 separate Kontakt/Play instance for each instrument

is this true that separate Kontakt/Play instance for each instrument is the only way to have separate volume control (serparate channels in the mixer) for each instrument (or articulation) in the template - if not, what other way is there ?

Using a Logic MIDI multi instrument. As in your other post here:

Alternatively, you can create busses for each instrument. To do this you would need to make sure your Kontakt/Play is a multi output instrument)

I should add, these are two very different ways to work.

The Logic multi is cabled to the Kontakt/Play. Then you choose the channel/s from that multi to use in the arrange.

With the second method, the Kontakt/Play multi uses output busses to auxiliaries that are also in the arrange.

As George mentioned in the other thread, these are relatively complex methods and it's best to study the manual.

I used to do the multi thing ala George's post but at one point switched to using single instances and much prefer that now. It makes things quicker and easier and distributes the processor load across the cores more evenly. I'll still load up multis for drums or other instruments that require it but, for the most part, just use singles.

Create the instrument as a Multi-timbral instrument then create aux channels on your output.

PLAY only allows 9 stereo outputs while Kontakt offers several outputs including 16 stereo.
