Issue with specific Kontakt channels having no sound

I have a setup in Kontakt for 14 instruments.  I have channels created for each instrument and each instrument i believe is properly routed to those channels and each midi channel as well.  The first 12 of these instruments sound just fine and work properly.  The last 2 do not.  The meters in the kontakt mixer show that they are sending signal, but studio one is not receiving these signals and sounding out.  To my knowledge, i've done nothing different for these last 2 instruments.  I loaded and routed them the exact same way as the other 12.

I've been having this problem for years with Kontakt and Studio One. What always fixes it temporarily for me is clicking the ! in the Kontakt interface which seems to reinitialize that instance of the instrument. I've had it happen in Logic too. I don't think it has ever happened in Reaper. So it's somehow related to the way individual DAWs interact with Kontakt.
