Why are some imported midi files "muted" when opening with Kontakt 7 instruments?

I have a strange problem. I have a properly set Kontakt 7 software instrument Noire in Logic and if I play some notes it work normally. Even if I import some simple midi files it works ok but if I import some other (more complex) midi file (generated with some mobile app) I cannot hear anything.

The same midi file works with the Logic default instruments but it does not work with none of Native Instruments.

Somebody knows this issue?

    @Matias K. Can you check the MIDI channel (or if there are multiple channels) in these more complex MIDI files? For example, if you set your Kontakt instrument to Omni, do you hear the notes? Maybe that article will help: Configuring your MIDI Keyboard / Controller in KONTAKT Treat the MIDI file as a controller in your case.

    Oh, thank you for your prompt response. I set the Midi Chanel to Omni and now it works :-)
