How to Set a Minimum Volume in Kontakt when using modwheel

    (Using Kontakt Player 6, Logic Pro X 10.33)

    When I release the modwheel (joystick actually) on my midi controller with some instruments in Kontakt, the volume of the instrument goes to zero, resulting in no sound when I hit another key unless I first push the modwheel back up. (On the Kontakt interface the modwheel bar snaps to the bottom and stays there. It still responds to the modwheel, however, and when I push it back up far enough, I get sound.)

    With other instruments this doesn’t happen when I release the modwheel - there is still some sound, even if low, when I hit a key after releasing the modwheel.

    Can I can set a minimum volume somewhere for volume controlled by the modwheel? I’ve looked everywhere for a solution but can’t figure it out. (I tried resetting values in the midi automation section but it didn’t help.) Can anyone help??

    You should probably use a slider instead of a joystick that snaps back to center when you release it...

    You can change the Mod Wheel minimum and maximum if that helps.

    Thanks, guys!

    ED - using a slider was a simple solution. Thx! If you know of some real basic tutorials for using Kontakt (especially if they tie in with Logic and setting CCs in string libraries) I'd sure welcome a link. I'm afraid my string library just kind of sets you adrift assuming you know all this, and as a total noob it's been very frustrating.

    poly - thanks for the tip! I'd tried that route (repeatedly! ;) but couldn't get it to respond. Settings looked right but there was no change in volume.
