Hi, is it possible to assign vibrato to aftertouch with any of the native instrument session guitarist? (mint electric, picked nylon, etc)?

Just purchased picked nylon and i noticed there is no tool icon next in the top left corner in kontakt to change detailed parameters like you can with many other vsts :/.

please tell me im missing something.

    Nevermind! for some reason the wrench icon in the top left corner on kontakt is not visible on Kontakt 6, but it os on kontakt 7! :)

    How do you actually assign aftertouch to anything? I see the gear icon, but I didn't see anything in it for vibrato.

    For anyone looking to figure out how to do this, it's pretty easy. On the Mk3 keyboard, change the aftertouch from polyphonic to monophonic and you can now control the vibrato with aftertouch in the session guitars. I did not have to change any settings in the Session software or Kontakt.

    For as much as NI was touting polyphonic aftertouch it's a bit ironic that it doesn't really work with any of the NI software. You would think if the codebase or the instrument itself could only support monophonic then the software would just default to monophonic without having to actually change the keyboard back and forth.

    Arturia instruments = Polyphonic aftertouch

    u-he Diva = Polyphonic aftertouch

    Session guitars = Monophonic aftertouch
