Once you do get it to work, it’s great, but it’s not a out-of-the-box-fuzzy experience. Assign two independent control messages to the X-Y pad for dramatic realtime control. Expressive X-Y pad offers dynamic control for natural sounding flams and rolls.
News Location Social Media. In psdkontrol I was assured that software would be provided with this unit, it was not. I’ve had an m-audio trigger finger for several years and have been satisfied with it but not blown away. Mapping the controller to DAW’s outside the presets that were given is almost to impossible.
Install the ones provided by the software. Each of the 16 pads can be individually assigned a note number and MIDI channel allowing you to control a single drum kit, or map it to control different devices in your setup at the same time. Two independent knobs can be assigned to a variety of control change messages — such as pan or decay time. To my chagrin, it is not. The thing I like about this controller compared to other pad controllers on the market is the sensitivity.
Somewhat less ‘solid’ that I’d prefer, but great nevertheless. Toggle or momentary operation allows the trigger pads to act as function switches, transport controls, or to be assigned to various control change messages.
A well documented problem is the octave shift in its midi numbering.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Richard L. Sometimes it just doesn’t seem to want to do what it’s supposed to. If I were needing another device like this, I would get something else.
The padKONTROL provides sixteen great-feeling trigger pads that are excellent for dynamic drum and organic percussion performances; an assignable X-Y pad that also provides for natural-sounding flams and rolls; plus a pair of assignable knobs — all letting you breathe musically expressive life into your software instruments and hardware MIDI sound modules.
Main Features Sixteen trigger pads for playing realistic drum parts with natural dynamics. Setting it up is fraught with problems though.
Definately read the manual as soon as you get it. Thirty pre-loaded scenes provide instant compatibility with popular music software titles. Be the first to review this padkontrlo. An assignable pedal jack allows a pedal to be used as an additional trigger such as a Kick Drum or as a control source.
Korv using it without setting up often requires a trip to the manual. Can be programmed for transport control functioning. So it can be very troublesome to program, since middle C is padkonteol likely to be what your DAW expects. If you do that programing it to the software you’re using should be a sinch. You don’t have to mash the thing to get a note to register.
Overall I love this thing and would definately recomend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cbsf from proffesional users only good for keyboard programming but not user friendly Date published: And it generally works fine for tapping out things. They should really have that option as a controller or Korg making a mapped pack for that controller Still haven’t been able to get padkontrok from Korg Kontrol Editor.
Moving a finger from left to right increases the speed of the roll, or the distance between the notes, while moving up the pad surface increases the volume of the roll, or the volume of the second note in the flam.
Pads are very nice, great feel. I still haven’t managed to get some of the padkonteol to work as expected.
