how to enable Korg native mode MIDI (padKontrol)

Hi everyone,

Could someone tell me how to initiate native mode with a Korg padKontrol? I found a thread from a couple years ago (link below) discussing doing it with a microKontrol and I would suspect the same method would work to start native mode even though the specific controller messages would change. I know that I’ll need to use [sysex] but any other pointers or sample code would be appreciated.

thanks,
dan

found a way to do jsut that.

my n00bish patch can be found at http://kpkproject.twoday.net/(and hopefully improved).

for background info on hacking the kpk see these discussions: http://www.ableton.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=52710&highlight=padkontrol+lights
and http://www.thecovertoperators.org/archives/149#comments
the later covers a soon to come out commercial-version of a KPK hack.

P.S. i will soon post the Korg PAdkontrol Implementation on the kpkproject site.

The coll files are just text for probably three different colls but
without any hint to which named coll they belong where in the main patch…

I could assign two of them, but the first in the list???

here’s an interesting question which probabaly has a very obvious answer:

how can one send a receive data simultaneously with the Kontrol49 (or padKontrol)?

i’ve got native mode working in Max and I can send data and it reacts very nicely. however, any Kontrol49 input while in native mode doesn’t react, only Max input. in normal mode Kontrol49 input reacts but no Max input. how can i control both simultaneously?
