How to automate vibrato-knob individually when multitimbral instruments are loaded in KK & K?
Gear used in the following question:
- Cubase 11
- Komplete Kontrol MK88 keyboard
- Kontakt 6, Ver: 6.7.1 R0 VST 2
- Komplete Kontrol, Ver: 2.7.2 R2 / VST 3
Please see the enclosed images for more info.
How do I use "Host Automation/Midi Automation" in Cubase 11, with NI´s Kontakt loaded with 3 several different instrument (multitimbral) in one single instance of Kontakt (and Kontakt loaded inside Komplete Kontrol)?
I always load Kontakt inside Komplete Kontrol, in order to be able to get the MK88 key-light to work and indicate articulations key-switches on the MK88 keyboard.
I want to be able to adjust the vibrato-knob in the articulation "Legato Vib Ctrl" for the instrument Cello, violas and violins in the instrument "Symphony Series - String Ensemble", and I want to be able to control the vibrato-knob individually for all 3 instrument loaded from the instrument "Symphony Series - String Ensemble".
I guess I should be able to use the Komplete Kontrol Keyboard MK88 since the keyboard already has different knobs for this function connected to Kontakt in Cubase, but those knobs only control the first loaded instrument inside Kontakt, in my case the Cello-instrument (also selected in the instrument navigator in Kontakt) and the vibrato-knob in the articulation "Legato Vib Ctrl" for cello, also selected on midi-track 01 in Cubase.
If I select midi-track 02 in Cubase, and instrument violas in the instrument navigator in Kontakt, and turning the same vibrato knob on my MK88 keyboard, then the vibrato still changes for the cello - and not for the selected violin?
I guess I can use eighter host or midi automation in Cubase to control the vibrato-knob in Kontakt, and I would prefer to be able to control the vibrato curve from the Key-editor...as I explain in the enclosed image "key-edtor.png" using the as I describe in the invented control field CC 15 in the picture.
Enclosed images on the actual setup:
Cubase 11 and the 3 midi-tracks loaded and all connected using midichannels 1,2 & 3 to Kontakt String Ensemble.
NI´s Kontakt loaded with 3 several different instrument (multitimbral), in one single instance of Kontakt (and Kontakt loaded inside Komplete Kontrol).
How I would prefer to be able to control the vibrato-knob curve from the Key-editor (just used CC 15 as an example CC in the image).
This makes me crazy, I have spent to days in order to try to solve this, without any good solution 😪
Your help will be very appriciated, thanx in advance ☺️
