(I apologize if this is already a question in the forum, but since “mixer vst instruments” isn’t allowed as a search on this forum because the words are too common, I am posting the question)
When I load external VST (Kontakt), the mixer shows a channel strip for each channel in the port. However, the only channel that shows a signal is the first channel. Adjusting the controls on all the other channel strips do not affect the playback. Adjusting the first strip controls all the instruments like a master control.
In this picture, all instruments should be showing a signal:
If I have multiple ports, the first channel strip of each port can be adjusted. This means if I want to control the volume of each instrument, I need to put them on a different port.
Thanks for any advice or suggestions.
