Kontakt 7 crashes Logic when I try to do multiple outputs for drums

Hey legends

I want to rout multiple outputs for 40's very own drums (or any drums for that matter) from Kontakt 7 so each drum is going to a seperate track in Logic. I click on the icon at the top of Kontakt to open 'Outputs' then i click the drop down and select 'Factory', then 'Mono 16x'. It opens the 16 mono outputs within Kontakt which is sweet. Then as soon as I click literally anything inside Kontakt after that, it crashes instantly and crashes Logic along with it.

Am I doing anything wrong?

M1 MBP 2021 (Rosetta) 16gb, 4tb SSD

OS Monterey 12.5

Komplete 14 Collectors edition

Komplete Kontrol S61

    Well, I wasn't aware of that feature in 40's Very On Drums, you are right, there is a routing option for all the drums sounds and it's actually simpler than in previous drum libraries. If you encounter crashes while following these steps, then you did the right thing contacting our support. Hopefully my colleagues can sort it out.

    Well, on the 40"s Very Own Drums you don't have the option to route the sounds to different outputs. For other drum libraries you can do that, like for the Abbey ROad series you can, follow the steps here:

    Hi Jeremy

    Thats interesting, because the way I discovered multiple output routing is from an official NI youtube video showing how to do it with 40's very own drums. Here's the video. https://youtu.be/cANXrimv8C8

    Also with the instructions you mentioned, I follow that exact process in the first link and after I create the multiple outputs, as soon as i click anything afterwards it crashes as I mentioned.

    I also followed the instructions in the second link and got all the way to creating the 16 tracks in the Logic mixer. As soon as I hit a key to monitor the signal was working in its designated track, Kontakt crashed Logic instantly, same as before.

    This is clearly a problem with output routing.

    I tried creating the outputs before loading the instrument and it seemed to let me get one step further where I could click the keys and hear the sounds after creating 16 mono outputs. However as soon as I clicked the KIT tab to route them to the individual tracks, it crashed :(

    I also tried doing it in Logic without running Rosetta and got the error "An Audio Unit plug-in reported a problem which might cause the system to become unstable. Please quit and restart Logic Pro."

    Tried it with Studio Drummer and it actually seemed to work. Got the individual drums to their own tracks and could playback and monitor them. Then changed to 40's and crashed again. Then went back to Rosetta and tried exact same process with Studio drummer again and it crashed.

    Ok so I have tried 10 different random instruments in Kontakt to test this out and every single one of them crashes Kontakt and Logic instantly as soon as i click anything within logic after creating multiple outputs.

    So it seems no matter what i load, I click outputs, presets/batch configuration, factory, mono x16 and instant crash.

    Anybody? Have sent in a ticket to NI still waiting for a response.
