In Kontakt, each Instrument routes its output to exactly one Output Channel. But you also send this signal to one or multiple Aux Channels with adjustable levels. This allows you to create sub-mixes and route wet effect signals for further processing and even to another physical output. In today’s video tutorial we’ll go over Using The Aux Channel To Add Reverb To An Instrument.
Show the Outputs section by clicking on the Outputs button.
In the first Aux Channel add a Reverb to the first Insert slot.
Double-click on the insert slot to show the effect parameters. Change the parameters to your liking or choose a factory preset. I’ve chosen Bright Room.
Play your instrument and adjust the aux1 slider to add reverb to your liking.
Now let’s take a look at routing wet effect signals to an Aux Channel.
In the Outputs section, the second aux channel and add a Tape Saturator to the first insert slot. Change the parameters to your liking or choose a factory preset. I’ve chosen Warm Distortion High Quality.
Enter edit mode by clicking on the wrench icon of your Instrument.
You can use send effects in the Group Insert, Bus Insert or Instrument Insert effects slots. To use a send effect add the Send Levels module to an effect slot.
Next, scroll down to the Send Effects section and add a Chorus module. Change the parameters to your liking or choose a factory preset. I’ve chosen Guitar Stereo.
