Clearing out the mic signals you don't need should be incredibly simple. In this example I'm going to demonstrate how to clean up a Sable patch, but it should be very similar on any recent Spitfire instrument. First, lets open up the V1 - Pizzicato patch from the _Individual brushes_ and take a look at the groups within it:
There are four microphone signals: Close, Tree, Amb(ient) and Outrigger, each following the other. In this example I am going to walk through how to keep just the tree mic:
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 ones related to the Tree mic.
With the groups deleted and Kontakt restarted you should now see an instrument that only contains the microphones you require on the mixer. Please remember this is a destructive process, so I'd recommend saving this as a new NKI and keeping your original for reference. This process can be repeated on all the individual patches, or you can try it on an all-in-one if you're feeling adventurous! (It's the same process, but with more groups).
You can think of it as a permanent form of purging samples you don't need with the added bonus of freeing up extra resources. If you're looking to squeeze as much out of your template as possible, are limited by RAM or just a little OCD about your instruments, cleaning out unused groups like this can save you valuable memory and CPU cycles that you can put to better use!
