Hi Zenguan! Here's the steps required to use Kontakt as a multi instrument.
1-)Open a stereo Kontakt by clicking and holding on the I/O slot of the audio instrument channel and selecting Stereo - AU instruments - Native Instruments - Kontakt. (You can also open a Multi Channel if you want to use different processing on each channel, but that's another story.)
2-Open the environment. Go to the layer where you have your audio instruments channels (probably the "Audio" layer. Select the Kontakt Instrument Audio Object and, change the Midi Channel to "All" in the parameter box at the left with the arrow tool by clicking and dragging down.
3-Select New - Multi Instrument from the environment local menu. It will create a Multi Instrument object. Rename it to something useful (like Kontakt Multi).
4-Click on the little arrow of the Multi Instrument object and connect it to the Kontakt instrument Audio Object. You will get a message asking if you want to remove the channel ports setting. Click on "remove".
7-Click on all the numbers on the Multi Instr. object to access all 16 channels. When you're finished, click back on 1.
8-Go back to you arrange window. You can then create tracks as usual. To select the right Kontakt Midi Channel, click and hold on the track name, and select the right number under "Kontakt Multi".
It can seems difficult at first, but it will soon become second nature... I do this all the times for Stylus RMX. You can also create a Logic template if you use Kontakt often so you won't have to do this each time.
Hope it helps! If you have further questions, don't hesitate.
