Most of Kontakt libraries uses modwheel (CC#1) to control changing dynamics of instrument (x-fade via layers of samples etc).
Here's a script for NI Kontakt that converts aftertouch (our "push" dimension) data into CC messages. I found it in audio-specialized forum:
declare const $CHANNEL_PRESSURE := 208
declare const $CONTINUOUS_CONTROLLER := 176
declare const $CC_NUMBER := 1
if ($MIDI_COMMAND = $CHANNEL_PRESSURE)
set_midi($MIDI_CHANNEL, $CONTINUOUS_CONTROLLER, $CC_NUMBER, $MIDI_BYTE_1)
Click on "KSP" button in the upper right of Kontakt window, click "edit", paste this script and click "apply". Then you can save preset to use in future.
This ("declare const $CC_NUMBER := 1") lane shows CC destination of aftertouch data, you can change CC number to any other.
I was surprised that in your video about using Kontact with Roli, the question of using aftertouch has remained a mystery. Here's the solution.
Thanks Kirill Yartsev!!!
Nice, thank you :)
"This ("declare const $CC_NUMBER := 1") lane shows CC destination of aftertouch data, you can change CC number to any other".
If you're working with Cubase Pro (or maybe other DAW's, that has this function) you can use Note Expression tab to translate aftertouch data into expression (modwheel)
I apologize, but not being very experienced, I would like to have more precise direction for this very useful function. Where should this script be compiled? Thank you.
Massimo, can't even remember where I found it. Sorry.
There is a script in Kontakt6 called "Transformer" which you can use for this purpose. It has a simple UI.
