I have a multi-instrument kontakt open in Logic, with 4 different instruments assigned to MIDI channels 1-4. Then I have 4 instrument tracks in the arrange each assigned to channels 1-4 of that instrument. A standard use of multi instrument.
Using automation such as modulation in this way is fine - each channel (1-4) can have its own modulation automation, independent of one another, which only affects the internal kontakt instrument it is routed to (as you'd expect). E.G. However, when I try to use automation on volume, for example, it affects the global kontakt channel, rather than the volume setting of the instrument within kontakt (hope this makes sense).
My question is, if I could assign a MIDI CC to the internal volume control of each kontakt instrument, I could ignore the volume CC and assign my own. This way, i could have each instrument track changing volume independently of each other (much like you can do with modulation).
How would I go about doing this? I have tried right-clicking on the volume slider, which gives me the option to assign a MIDI CC, but this requires me to move a hardware controller of some sort, and not just assign a specific channel to it.
Sorry if this isn't very clear, I hope somebody understands what I mean!
A good counter example is DP - adjusting volume of individual tracks does not affect the volume on the multi-instrument track - just the volume of the kontakt instrument that the channel is being routed to...
