SWITCHER for Kontakt and Komplete Kontrol keyboard

How to have it
The Switcher for Komplete by Suonopuro is a multiscript for Kontakt that allows you to select, split and layer many sounds across your Komplete Kontrol Keyboard.
For example, you can load 8 different instruments for Kontakt, transport them, overlap or divide them into different parts of the keyboard and recall them on the fly, without waiting for loading.

- Set or leave your Komplete Kontrol Keyboard to MIDI channel 1 (default).
- Load the Suonopuro_Switcher_for_Komplete.nkm file and then the virtual instruments you intend to use, each one set on a different MIDI channel from 1 to 8, as in image 1.
- Choose the lowest and highest notes of the range you want to use for each channel. To do this, fill in the CH* up and CH* low fields for the eight MIDI channels of the Switcher. Alternatively you can click on the Learn CH* range button and then play on your keyboard first the lowest note and then the highest note of the range you want to use.
- Change the key and octave for each channel with the Oct (octaves) and ST (semitones) knobs.

- If the "C. Controllers ON" button is active, you can turn channels on and off by pressing the unlabeled buttons on your Komplete Kontrol keyboard (see the buttons marked in red, 1 to 8, in image 2, midiCC 112 to 119).
Furthermore, with the first 4 unlabeled knobs, you can activate and deactivate the pairs of channels 1+2, 3+4, 5+6 and 7+8 respectively. (see the green labels from 1 to 4 in image 2).
- If the "SINGLE MODE" button is active, by selecting a channel, all the others will be deactivated. This way you can switch from one instrument to another by pressing a single button. Likewise, you can switch between pairs with the unlabeled knobs, 1 through 4.
- If the "Program C. ON" button is active, you can change channels using MIDI program changes from 1 to 8. In SINGLE MODE, with Program Changes from 9 to 12 you can recall, respectively, the channel pairs 1+2, 3+4, 5+6 and 7+8.
If the "Program C. ON" button is deactivated, then program changes will be sent only to the selected channel. In this way, if you load .nkb files on the channels, which contain banks of sounds, with the unlabeled buttons on the keyboard you can move from one bank to another, while with the MIDI program changes you can select a single sound of the bank active.
- If the "Relative P.C. button" is on, the first program change received will be considered #1 and the following ones, in proportion.
- The 3 menus at the bottom are used, respectively, to choose a controller to use to activate and deactivate the "SINGLE MODE", "C. Controllers ON" and "Program C. ON" buttons, directly from the keyboard.
