Kontakt 6.6.1: How can I make additional outputs available in Ableton Live?

Versions/Specs: Kontakt 6.1.1 (VST3) • Ableton 11.1.5 • macOS 11.6.5 (Big Sur) • Intel Core i5-1038NG7

Hi, all.

I'm using a 3rd party drum library (Getgood Drums, Modern & Massive Pack), and I would like to route each of its internal mixer channels out to individual tracks in Ableton Live 11 for processing and mixing.

I can create all the channels I need inside of Kontakt and route the instrument's sounds appropriately, but there are only 15 stereo outputs available from Kontakt when I'm setting up my track inputs in Ableton. I am using 29 channels inside of Kontakt (a mixture of mono and stereo channels), and cannot figure out how to expose the extra channels/outputs to Ableton.

Is this a limitation of Kontakt, or do I need to make some additional configuration change to get more than 16 (15) outputs?

    After you set up your outputs in Kontakt, make them default, then remove Kontakt instance and load it again. You should now see your extra outputs available in your DAW.
