Using Kontakt Live - Recommended Setup!

Hi Guys,

I have 8.5 on my main DAW, and bought Elements 8 for my laptop to use as a host for Kontakt, in reality I only use about 3 or 4 instruments, the main one being Vintage Organ.

I have all the tracks set up and simply select the track for the required instrument; the method works OK, but it would be easier to have a config where I’m not having to use the laptop on stage.

Is there an easier / simpler way to achieve the same effect, I get the feeling I’m over complicating things

Thanks in advance!

PS I have HALion Sonic 2 and HALion Symphonic Orchestra already, is there any real benefit to upgrading to HALion 5.1 if I’m using Kontakt?
