Can you route the sound of the individual instruments to different Kontakt outputs?
Hey Michel at this stage it is not possible to do this as we were trying to simplify the whole UI experience. If there is enough interest in this feature it would be something to look into for a future update. We have big plans for the Chronicles series of instruments so we are always listening to users feedback :)
On a general note as you can load individual instruments with in Brass & Wood I would consider loading individual instances of Kontakt for each instrument you which to be seperate.

Hope that helps

No problem. It's not a dealbraker anyway and I already thought of that workaround. It would only be of use if I would send it to someone else to mix, because I am a lazy mixer myself and probably wouldn't bother with it anyway.

Curious what the rest of the series is going to bring. I for one am glad that you started with this small woodwinds & brass ensemble.

And I applaud you for simplifying the UI experience. Always nice to be able to focus on the instrument itself instead of the manual.

Thanks Michel :) It was definitely great to work on a library outside of our normal World Series... that said we will be presenting some cool worldly inspiration in the next chronicles series. Lots of inspiring stuff ahead! As for the UI.. it was really quite a journey believe it or not we did a version 1 of the UI... spent ages on it then right at the last minute we decided it was too busy and started from scratch (poor scripter!!). It was a hard decision to make but I feel it was the right one to keep things clean and simple. The reality is that this instrument might seem simple on the outside but behind the scenes there is a lot going on. It was a true juggling act trying to find the right amount of useful features with out over complicating things lol End of the day we are always learning through out experiences :)
 
I wanted to leave one quick comment because I was surprised by something with this library.

There are certain sounds and timbres that I find really attractive and will trigger an immediate impulse buy. This library has them in spades and I've been enjoying my purchase of it ever since I heard them in the walkthrough. The instruments are phenomenally well recorded.

The one thing I was surprised by was this is the first library where I really noticed my tiny 25-key keyboard (didn't have lots of space on my desk when I picked it up) was a real detriment. One of the things that makes this lib so special (and I'm guessing is kind of the point of it) is how tremendously good the several instruments blend together when played at the same time.

I'm finding it a little hard to trigger multiple instruments together because they are (appropriately) spread across a full-sized keyboard. I realize I can trigger different instruments separately (and/or just layer them in the DAW), it is just not as fun as being able to play them together in real-time. Guess I need a bigger keyboard...

wow thanks so much for you wonderful feedback! It makes me so happy that you are enjoying the sounds! It really was a labour of love this library... exciting to finally get it out into the world :)
I would definitely recommend a bigger keyboard... I use an 88 key myself and it's so much fun to play! I can understand the wide spread making it harder to play on smaller keyboards. Due to the concept of the instrument I really wanted to stay true to the instruments range. Either-way we are always listening to user feedback and open to suggestions to make our instruments more flexible :)

Oh, totally agree. I hope my feedback made it clear that this decision made perfect sense to me.

I hadn't thought before about how the default equipment owned by a creator might shape the instrument they will make. It might be interesting for you to try this on a smaller keyboard for a bit and see how it changes the experience of the instrument. I suspect no one makes an "only use this if you have 88 keys" product, but maybe implicit assumptions do creep in?

That being said, it occurred to me that it might be neat to have a patch that triggered multiple instruments off the same keys (dunno if octaves or some other mapping would work?). And then right after that it occurred to me it might be fun to see what I could do with a tool like divismate to change the mapping between what I play and what gets triggered by your library. Next time I get a spare moment, I'll try that out

Totally it is all great ideas and I appreciate the feedback. I take it as a positive :) I'll make note of this. I guess I am so use to the 88 keys that I should remember that not everyone uses that many lol. That said I would highly recommend one :)
