Midi learn funtion not working.

Just upgraded to Kontakt 7 and for some reason the midi learn function is not working with any of the instruments in the new Kontakt factory library 2. I right click on a parameter and nothing happens. Anyone else run into this problem or have any ideas what it could be. Still works fine with all other instruments.

    Correct, the old right-click method to MIDI learn parameters is not currently available for the instruments which use the Native UI toolkit.

    Actually the new method can be much, much faster when assigning multiple parameters, because you can click the Learn button twice and then it becomes "locked", so you can move your MIDI controller knob, then click on the parameter, then move another MIDI controller knob, then click on parameter, etc. You don't have to right-click every parameter to choose MIDI learn. Ends up being way faster.

    Hello,

    on the left side, where you see the libraries go to the "automation tab" then "midi automation", there you can learn a knob and right after select the parameter you want to control. It´s really self explainatory once you are on the tab and pressed learn.

    Hi Uwe303,

    Thanks for the work around.🙂 It does work this way however it is so much quicker and easier to just "right click" on a knob and learn it, it's literally 2 steps. Is this function just not available at all with any of the instruments in the new factory library 2 ??? I just want to know if I'm missing something here. If the function is just not available with these instruments then it just is what it is. I just can't find any official answer or solution to this. Like I said "right click" midi learn works just fine with all of my other instruments, just not the new ones in the new Kontakt library that came with Kontakt 7. For now I'll use the method you mentioned, it does work but it sure would be nice to just 'right click' and done. If you have any more info on this please share, Thanks. 😀

    Thank you EvilDragon.

    Do you know if the 'right click' feature will be available in the future? I typically only need to assign a couple parameters to a midi controller. Like maybe assigning the amount of reverb to a slider, or turning delay on and off. For me it's much quicker to right click a parameter or 2 since the interface is already in front of me, now I have to open up separate menus to do the same thing. It's a work flow thing for me. Just seems silly they would take away such a simple feature on an "upgrade". I do get what you're saying about assigning multiples at one time though. 😉

    I don't know if right-click will return or not. It's a complicated topic for a number of reasons.
