Thanks for the article, Brian! This was hugely helpful!
I’m having one little snag though and I’m wondering if you can help. I had been looking to do something similar to your 4th option. I set up 3 first then followed the directions for 4 to route the audio through mainstage. It works but, even with all my levels up in Kontakt and MS, theres barely any sounds happening. Is there someplace else I should be adjusting a setting in? Directly from SoundFlower? Thanks!
