Kontakt 5 - How to automate Pan?? (Individual Zones)

What up all,

Within Kontakt, if I have, for example, a few samples mapped out to different notes, I have two questions:

1 - Is there a way to automate only certain samples (zones)? If I want to automate the pitch of say a snare but not the rest of the samples, is there a way to do that? I know I can put the snare on it's own channel without the rest of the samples and just automate the pitch in Kontakt that way but what if I have a snare, a kick, hi hats, etc. all within Kontakt on one channel, is the only option to automate all of them?

2 - Certain parameters can be automated but I've noticed that I can't automate the pan within the mapping editor (is there a way to do this?). Similarly to my first question, if I have some kicks, snares, and hi hats mapped out but then want to automate just the panning of the hi hats within Kontakt, how can I do this? I'll attach a picture of what it is I'm trying to automate (highlighted in green).

Thanks for any insight.

You cannot automate zones in your DAW... you can try using zone envelopes though (in the Wave Editor) - but that's not the same thing. Depends if you want automation from your DAW, or not.

Easiest way would be putting single samples in their own groups then automating group pan. That would work.
