Tech question: Korg Nanokey Studio Programming Dos and Don'ts
General question to Korg NanoKey Studio users about programming scenes via the Korg Editor Software. Is there anything you know now that you wish you knew before programming it? I'm about to give it a go and I'd like to know if you've found anything of great usefulness in terms of configurations or pitfalls to avoid.
My plan is to use the eight scenes to give the faders their own midi channel and increment the CCs numbers from 1-8. For the pads I'm going to remap them to play chromatically from C2-C5 across six scenes and use the remaining two scenes to make the pads act as the 9th CC for each of the 8 midi channels (to use as a mute button).
Do you think this will work? Are there any other mapping approaches I should be aware of? Something more complex perhaps? I remember the Korg Padkontrol had some very sophisticated functions using scene buttons. I'm wondering if anyone has managed to replicate functionality from another controller into a Nanokey Studio?
Should I post the resulting file if I'm successful?
Fun tip: the shift button works as a tap tempo button to get the timing of the Arps playing properly You can also program your preferred tempo into the nanokey studio via the editor.
