Re: Play audio file or track how ??

AFAIK, Kontakt (full versionm which I don't havve) can use WAV files as "samples" and assign then to midi Notes. (You don't even need to import them.) Now playing this note (e.g. by taking the midi event from a drum pad) will fire the complete WAV file content, unless you use Kontakt means...

Re: Play audio file or track how ??

If the software can do "direct Disk" streaming, the size of the files should not be an issue at all, as the first -say- second of all possible files are preloaded into RAM, and loading from SSD while playing is fast enough With LinuxSampler I am able to trigger so 30 Wav files at the same ...

Re: Play audio file or track how ??

The hardware does sound perfect.

So SamSolo1.3 seems indeed to be the culprit.

I tested LinuxSampler (which can be d/led as a Windows version) very successfully (as a stand alone program). I don't know if it can run as a VST. But there are lots of other SoundFont players around.

If you don't find an internal solution with Forte you might consider to use Bome Midi Translator in the Midi data stream between the Midi input and Forte. Here you can do "Midi Mute" (and a lot more).
