Loading Multiple Instruments In Kontakt Within New Browser

I have searched in the manual and watched the "How to Use Everything in KONTAKT 7 | Native Instruments" video. In the video Brian demonstrates the technique of activating the pin icon while in the browser view, double clicking on a preset to load it, and then continuing to browse and layer instruments without leaving that view. Although I am able to click and drag from the rack view and layer instruments, I can't seem to do it from the browser view even when activating the Pin icon. I have also tried toggling on and off the option of "Merge new multis with existing one" from within the options menu.

Thank you

    So, you want to load multiple instruments inside Kontakt?

    I want to double click a preset from the new browser view, and then click on another one and have it loaded in addition to the first one instead of replacing it. So yes, I want to create a multi without having to switch back and forth between different views.

    Yeah, I think there is a solution.

    First, load any instrument, obviously.

    Then, click anywhere below the instrument window, on the black empty space of the Kontakt tab, so that the orange line besidethe instrument can dissapear.

    Then try to load a new instrument.

    Let me know if it helped.

    @Pat Erns There were a few changes in the Kontakt browser, maybe this will be helpful: Kontakt 7.7 - User Interface Changes
