Question Multi-timbral MIDI Out Channels?

When I load instruments in Kontakt, they are automatically assigned to MIDI channels 1-16 in order. Is there a way to have this happen in the Play engine? Rather than instruments default to Omni MIDI Out?

Yes, you can change that in the settings.

To be precise: Play > Settings > Other > MIDI Channel Assignment > Automatic Increment

There are a few behaviors to be aware of when Automatic Increment is selected. First, if
you delete an instrument or manually change channels, a new instrument may open with
an already used channel. Second, if you replace one instrument with a different one, the
new instrument will inherit the MIDI channel of the instrument being replaced. Third, if
you open a multi (file containing multiple instruments) where the instruments were set
to Omni (MIDI channel 0), they will be assigned to channels 1, 2, 3, etc.

You can read up on it in the Play 6 User Manual:
