Have one Kontakt 7 as Vienna ensemble pro instance loaded with 16 instruments, but the output goes to the master output.

I want to use the mixer in Vienna Ensemble Pro and see the 16 instruments from Kontakt there in the mixer and each individual instrument goes to the master output.

Is this setup easy to do ?


Can also use a Kontakt plugin for each instrument in Kontakt in Vienna Ensemble Pro , and then the mixer is too easy to use, but this setup will use a lot of CPU power?  


Which of the two setups do you prefer ?

It's not very difficult to set up in Kontakt but you'll want to read the manual if it's not immediately intuitive from looking at the layout. However when combining stereo outputs with mono outputs there are hiccups particularly past a certain number (I don't remember, I don't have any use for this).

Personally I don't use Kontakt for very many instruments in one instance. Now I'd probably eschew it altogether, frankly. It isn't going to save significant CPU time unless we're talking hundreds of nkis or something. There are things I have which are not configured as multis in the folder so I would have a few in an instance that are articulations of the same instrument (like in the old days) but I'd just as soon use a folder that collapses and load them under one port but the several channels, as set up multiple outs from Kontakt.

That said I'll always use BFD3's outputs to VE Pro, as it's a very different sound (much more present/loud) this way.

Thanks, Doesn't matter all that much for processor usage as I understand it or multitimbral or each instance a contact instument.

What is the easiest setup where this is concerned...

Also don't have a huge number of instruments in the Vienna ensemble pro server to connect, because can only use 128 at a time anyway ( is already a lot of 128 for a composition and don't use that)
