Logic Pro/Kontakt Multi-Timbral (Help Needed) Virtual Instrument Plugins

Question Logic Pro/Kontakt Multi-Timbral (Help Needed)

Okay. I'm new to multi's, so I apologize if this comes off as a stupid question.

I'm trying to create a multi-timbrel instrument in Kontakt 5 (Logic Pro), but I keep running into this weird issue... I'm able to create the multi and the individual tracks corresponding to the 16x outputs. The tracks all work perfectly (kind of). All the instruments are properly routed so that the right instruments play on the intended tracks/outputs.

THE PROBLEM is that the volume indicator triggers on a DIFFERENT track for some of them. So, I'm going to go ahead explain what I did. (hopefully, somebody can check my steps and see exactly where I went wrong along the way):

1. Loaded 16 instruments into instance of Kontakt on a 16x output channel.

2. Set each instrument's midi channel in Kontakt in a consecutive order (e.g. first instrument was set to [A]1, the second to [A]2, etc.).

3. Went to "batch functions" and selected the option to "clear output section and create one individual channel for each loaded instrument".

4. Opened Logic's mixer and pressed the plus sign on the Kontakt multi track for as many instruments I had (keeping in mind that the host channel is the first instrument).

5. Individually went to every added channel in Logic's mixer and created a track for each one.

These are the exact steps I took. I've done this many times and tried experimenting with it differently. Still, I keep running into the same issue. I've even checked multiple YouTube tutorials, but clearly I'm missing something.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Problem has been revolved.

I don't understand why, but for some reason Kontakt keeps routing the outputs incorrectly. After closing examine, I found some issues and fixed the problem.
