C5.1: where are my other kontakt 4 outputs?

    Hi everyone,

    Long time user of Cubase SX1, I'm doing a very,vvvery slow transition to
    Cubase 5.

    I use cubase 5.1.1/2 along with Kontakt 4.1.3 plugin.

    I am able to create outputs inside Kontakt 4. Each output should
    correspond to a channel in cubase, am I right?
    But only the first stereo output of Kontakt actually appears in Cubase.

    For instance, when I first loaded Kontakt 4, it was loaded with 2 stereo
    outs and a surround out + aux channels.
    Only one channel track was created in cubase.
    No matter the Kontakt output configuration, I only get one output track
    in cubase. Loading the "Kontakt 4 16outs" doesn't change anything either.

    So how come? How do I get access to the other channels

    For the record: If I route an instrument to, say, stereo output 2 of
    Kontakt, I can play it ok, the meters show activity in Kontakt, but
    there is no sounds anywhere in cubase.

    I'm sorry for this newbie question. It must be too simple.

    Thanks for your inputs (ah ah ah).

    The answer, for the record, found here:

    and probably in the manual of cubase :)) :

    When Kontakt 4 is loaded, in the VST instruments panel, there is a very
    small Icon, last to the right, wich represnts a square from wich an
    arrow. This button allow to activate any of the available channels of
    the plugins within cubase.

    This control never existed in my old cubase SX.

    Have you tried setting up the additional channels in the ASIO menu

    I remember spending a long time looking for this item myself, after
    installing CU5. It could have been made a little clearer. Anyway it does
    help keeping the number of mixer channels low, which is good.

    I totally agree.
    This is very convenient.
    Anyone who used Kontakt 4 in cubase SX1 couldn't disagree: the whole 64
    channel armada was appearing in the cubase mixer when the plugin was
    loaded :)
