You also might want to avoid using multiple outputs with one instance of K5 and process the instruments with kontakt's internal effects. When I tried using NI's studio drummer with multi outs and processing the tracks with logics comps and EQs, logic became sluggish and unresponsive.
so for example treat a string sections as 2 instances for hi and low.
gonna try that now and see how the cores behave as right now..as you say...one core seems to carry all the work when i just pile up sections.
multi outs for at least drum spreads would be my ideal and if this is sluggish... as you say it is.... i might have to complain!!!
how many instances of kontakt might you use in a typical track Metalliac?
i am used to many EX24's but kontakt scares me a bit!
