Once you do get it to work, it’s great, but it’s not a out-of-the-box-fuzzy experience. Another thing that is great is that the controller actually can show up as two seperate controllers on your computer.
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 sound from Korg Kontrol Editor. Even using it without setting up often requires a trip to the manual. Setting it up is fraught with problems though.
I’ve had an m-audio trigger finger for several years and have been satisfied with it but not blown away. The X-Y pad adds real-time control of both flam and roll timing and dynamics. Emotional KONTROL 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.
So it can be very troublesome to program, since middle C is not likely to be what your DAW expects. The main con that I’ve come across is when you’re jamming a little too hard you’ll sometimes get crosstalk between the pads, but for that to happen you have to really hit a pad excessively hard. Rated 3 out of 5 by Richard L.
Toggle or momentary operation allows the trigger pads to act as function switches, transport controls, or to be assigned to various control change messages. First off, the item came to me in almost perfect condition, I could not see too much wear and tear on the product Rated 3 padkontgol of 5 by John Bonnell from Mostly great, but hard to set up For the money, it’s hard to beat.
If I were needing another device like this, I would get something else. Eight different dynamic curves are available for each pad, or you can set each pad to its own fixed level. I still haven’t managed to get some of the functions to work as expected. Sometimes it just doesn’t seem to want to do what it’s supposed to.
Overall I love this thing and would definately recomend it. Free Editor Librarian software is included, so you can edit and manage scene data directly on your computer. Another point to paddkontrol is that it won’t pass midi signals through the midi port without external power, which it does not include.
Mapping the controller to DAW’s outside the presets that were given is almost to impossible. Rated 5 out of 5 by cbsf from proffesional users only good for keyboard programming but not user friendly Date published: In addition to accessing drum sounds and samples, the controller can also control virtual synthesizers and effects, trigger loops and video clips, and even act as transport controls for Padkotrol software programs.
The USB cord included sticks out from the back of the unit entirely to far. I had to get the basic stuff off the Korg Site, but the promised software that one would need to get any kind of use out of this unit was not included.
And it generally works fine for tapping out things. No Longer Available Update Location close. Enter new zip code to refresh estimated delivery time. To my chagrin, it is not. Install the ones provided by the software. If you do that programing it to the software you’re using should be a sinch. Be the first to review this item.
Assign two independent control messages to the X-Y pad for dramatic realtime control. The thing I like about this controller compared to other pad controllers on the market is the sensitivity.
Thirty pre-loaded scenes provide instant compatibility with popular music software titles. The controller is ideal for creating natural, organic sounding drum beats. You don’t have to mash the thing to get a note to register.
An assignable pedal jack allows a pedal to be used as an additional trigger such as a Kick Drum or as a control source. 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.

For example, I use it to control both Traktor Pro 2 and Ableton Live simultaniously by assigning the pads for different midi inputs. The footpedal input is assignable! Update Unrecognized Zip Code. 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.
Pads are very nice, great feel. With the addition of an optional footswitch you can add real kick drum parts, or close an open hi-hat.

Support Manuals Software Drivers. Somewhat less ‘solid’ that I’d prefer, but great nevertheless. Rated 4 out of 5 by D Witt from Solid Controller I’ve owned this little guy for a few years now and it’s still holding up strong.
Can be programmed for transport control functioning.
