Default Reaper & Kontakt

I'm new to the midi technology. I have a full version of Kontakt 5. I also have several virtual samples and instruments. However I don't know how to make Reaper and Kontakt work together. I've tried reading the Kontakt manual but it hasn't helped very much. I've also seen a couple of YouTube nideos but again, not much help. So I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a source, other than the manual, that would help me to understand how to make all this work?

Thanks,

I am sure that there are great Videos by Kenny on how to use virtual instruments in Reaper. -> https://www.reaper.fm/videos.php

Have a look at Kontakt 4, SampleTank and ...: "starter" signal paths, schematics and templates

Hey thanks for the replies everyone. I am still struggling with all of this. I found a video on the Reaper Blog where Jon sets up a Kontakt Template in Reaper. So I was able to duplicate it, however that's where I'm stuck.
I'd like to assign 2 instruments to 2 of the tracks in the template but I can't make that happen. When I press a key on my keyboard I can see the volume move in Kontakt but i don't hear anything through my speakers/headphones.
Any advice? Is there a video that breaks this down? How about Routing for Dummies?

Thanks,

Do you have record monitoring turned on?
