The all-new padKONTROL joins Korgs expanding line-up of MIDI studio controllers. Adding another dimension beyond traditional keyboard control, the padKONTROL is the most expressive and versatile pad controller ever!
Drums are just the beginning. A MIDI message can be assigned to each pad, and they can be set for momentary or toggle operation. In addition to sending a value as the pad is touched, a specific value can be sent as the pad is released, so they can be used like buttons or switches to control any function on your soft synths and DAWs.
Based on Korgs renowned KAOSS technology, the X-Y pad can be assigned to control any two continuous controllers in real-time. You might set the X Axis to control pitch bend on a synth while the Y Axis controls reverb depth. Or set them to control filter cutoff and resonance, or multiple delay parameters for evocative and expressive performance and mixing possibilities.
Two assignable knobs provide continuous control of two other MIDI parameters. You can easily invert the values sent from any of these controllers so you can quickly adjust them to your needs. Even the footswitch input can be set as a momentary or toggle switch for any parameter. Like the X-Y and trigger pads, the pedal also can send a specific release value.
Whenever you strike a pad or move a controller the built-in display shows what message or value is being sent, giving you accurate confirmation of what youre doing. The pads have a striking visual behavior, which will move you to visually groove along with your playing. Pads assigned to notes light up when struck and then shut off. Pads assigned to CC messages stay lit to show their status. Three variations of the Illumination mode cause the trigger pads to light up in unique patterns. Two begin when a trigger pad is struck, and a third starts automatically when the padKONTROL sits idle for a few minutes. The great feel of the trigger pads and the Illumination mode work together synergistically to catapult your performance to a higher intensity level than ever before.
Thankfully, once you have all the controllers set the way you like, you can save the entire set of assignments as a “User Scene.” Sixteen User Scenes are available in the padKONTROL itself, and they can be quickly selected using the pads. In addition, thirty preset scenes are included, designed to instantly match the padKONTROL to some of the most popular music software programs.
The padKONTROL also comes with free Editor/Librarian software. Using the computers graphic capabilities, the Editor/Librarian software makes it easy to create, store and organize vast libraries of scenes and “scene sets.”
The padKONTROL comes with a special dfh SUPERIOR drum kit plug-in instrument from Toontracks , created to work exclusively with your versatile controller. This 260 MB drum kit features multiple velocity levels, and a variety of microphone positions – 2,700 samples in all – so you can start laying down beats as soon as you get it out of the box!
The padKONTROL also comes with the Creative Kontrol Pack Vol. 2, an impressive collection of music software from leading creators in the field.
