If you followed these steps correctly, your list should have the 9 groups highlighted and look the same as the image shown on the right. You're now ready to delete the groups!
Right click (for Mac users, hold CTRL and click) the group list and select from the menu and press OK on the dialog that pops up. The groups that we just selected will be deleted, leaving the proper articulations intact.
Finally, refresh the instrument by pressing the Restart button in the Kontakt toolbar ( ).
With the groups deleted and Kontakt restarted you should now see an instrument that no longer contains these rest notations or empty articulations. You'll also notice less keyswitches on the Kontakt keyboard (see below for a before/after comparison). Please remember this is a destructive process, so I'd recommend saving this as a new NKI and keeping your original for reference.
You can follow these steps for both the Core and Decorative palettes as required, or any Spitfire Audio instrument if you're feeling adventurous! (It's the same process, but with different groups depending on the empty articulations present). If the rests have been annoying you this may be a relatively simple solution!
