My OS is Windows 10 (but from what I’ve seen in online videos, the issue I’m bringing up is the same for a Mac OS) and I’m relatively new to Kontakt.
I’m frustrated at what seems to be a convoluted/complicated process of dropping MIDI grooves or fills from any KK Drum Multisample (Abbey Road, Drum Lab, etc.) into the respective Kontakt track.
Unlike other drum samplers/VST such as EZDrummer and even free ones like Steven Slate and MTPowerKit 2, one can’t just drag and drop the selected groove or fill directly from the GUI. The reason that seems to be so is that…
What is seen in the Kontakt GUI are the samples versions of the selections, not their MIDI counterparts.
One seems to have to open a separate Windows Explorer window and go down the folder directories to finally find the chosen groove or fill seen in the GUI. (The left pane in- Kontakt GUI directories search doesn’t let one, see, open or select actual MIDI files - or at least I haven’t figured out how).
This separate Windows Explorer way is how I had to find and drag in KeyFax MIDI files from archives back in the early 2000s. This is Native Instruments and 2022.
There’s got to be a more efficient way to do this from within Kontakt and/or Cubase that I’m simply ignorant of.
Thank you for your help.
