Moving Kontakt 5 Global Devices to Kontakt 6

Some time ago I set up a whole load of multis in Kontakt 5, for which I also set up corresponding Global Devices, complete with articulations, etc.

It's obviously easy to use these multis in Kontakt 6 - it's simply a case of dragging the multi across. But how can I get Synfire to update them to Kontakt 6?

I can't see a way to copy all the channels and articulations in one operation. The only way I can think of is to change the existing devices to templates, create new Kontakt 6 devices, and then manually populate the new devices with each channel individually from the newly-created templates.

This will be very time-consuming as I have a lot of devices set up, each with up to 16 channels per device. Surely there must be a better way to do this?

As for the loaded samples and patches, just save them to disk using the Kontakt 5 UI, then load them back into an instance of Kontakt 6.

You should be able to use the same device description for both Kontakt 5 and 6. But to be on the safe side, you can associate the DD with the new Kontakt 6 instance (right-click menu on device).
