When I try to run multiple tracks of Lores patches on KontaKt 6 player in Logic Pro/Monterey, only one track will play back. All the other tracks aren't muted, I can see activity pumping on each channel meter, but can't hear them?? Im a newbie to Kontakt????? Is it a KontaKt thing or Lores???

    Lores manual is an absolute mystery to me. I have been recording since 1970s and have used just about every O/S and plugin known to man. I am totally confused by NI Lores. It's not the way we work and the Help Manual is useless. If any one has some knowledge or can point me to a tutorial that is more than just marketing/ sales rubbish please let me know. I've had it and think I have wasted $300

    @Jeremy_NI Have you heard of this issue with LORES before?

    @Scott Davis This is probably due to the way Kontakt works. From what I understand you are creating one instance of Kontakt with multiple libraries. Every time you load a new instrument it automatically assigns a different MIDI channel:

    If you don't set the correct MIDI channel in your DAW, it won't play the notes.

    If you wish to set a multitimbral instrument of Kontakt in Logic, here is how to:

    Or you could open a new Kontakt tack for every Lores instance you want to use, it might be the simplest way.
