Can't get articulations for the Kontakt World Instrument (Soprano Recorder) to work.

I load an instance of the World Instrument (Soprano Recorder) from the Kontakt Factory Library. I flip the Articulation switch to ON, turn the Note knob to select different articulations and play notes, but the sound doesn't change.

I use the Orchestral articulations extensively and understand how they work.

What am I doing wrong?

    I have discovered you have to be holding the note associated with the articulation you want while playing the musical note you want. With all other key-switched NI instruments I have used you simply send the note associated with the articulation you want and that articulation remains in effect until you send a different note to change the articulation.

    Hello,

    unfortunately i can´t find the instrument (Soprano Recorder) on my system. Have you checked that you use the latest version, just open native access and you´ll see, if it finds updates install them all.

    All my NI devices are up to date. The World Instrument (Soprano Recorder) is located in the World folder in the Kontakt Factory library.

    Ahh ok now i understand, you have to trigger those articulations by playing a note from c0 to b0, try it and you´ll see

    But with the flute it makes absolute sense to handle it that way, you can hold a musical note and just use the articulation at the beginning or the end of the note and so on.
