How to use Native Instruments Kontakt with Automap?

Applies to: Automap

When you load an Automap wrapped instance of Kontakt the controls in Automap will be labeled 001, 002, 003 etc. These numbers correspond to the host automation ID numbers. To view the Kontakt host automation assignments click on the 'Auto' tab in the browser and select the 'Host Automation' page. You can drag and drop host automation IDs onto any parameter in Kontakt to allow that parameter to be Automated.

Automap controls plug-in parameters using automation rather than MIDI data so if you want to control a parameter in Kontakt from your Automap controller you must first assign it to an Automation ID number within Kontakt using the drag-and-drop procedure. Once that is done you can learn that parameter to a control by activating learn mode, altering the plug-in parameter with the mouse and then operating the control that you want to assign it to. The control in Automap will then be labelled with the parameter name (e.g. cutoff) rather than the automation ID number.
