Korg NanoKontrol MIDI output
I tried search this but didn’t find any solution on the fly, so I thought I might just ask once more:
Did anyone have any luck figuring out what the MIDI output provided by the Korg NanoKontrol 2 is good for? I unfortunately had no luck seeing the glimpse of a light flash or a fade miraculously move… come on, we believe in miracles. But the korgNANOCONTROL2 CTRL output device does show up in Max, so I am still wondering if it has a purpose.
Thanks for any hints, sorry if I missed something obvious…
did you select the right midi in device?
make a [midiin] object, doubleclick on it to select the right midi device, connect a [bang] to it and see if it flashes.
if so: attach a [midiparse] object and see what the incoming data is (look at the help patch of midiparse if you are confused)
oh, and you might want to connect the nanocontrol before you start max, this can sometimes cause problems.
I thought I read somewhere that you can now hot-swop usb devices in MAX. Haven’t tried it myself yet though.

I suspect that Korg uses that "MIDI output" so that their "Korg Control Editor" software can program the device. Not useful unless you can get a spec from Korg on what messages (probably SysEx or NRC params) they use to program the device. Based on the UI in their Korg Control Editor, it does, in deed, appear as if the settings (CC#s, MIDI Channel, Velocity curves, etc) are written to the hardware, not just handled via the driver software.
Here’s a thought–you can spy on the MIDI messages sent to the "CTRL" because the software lets you choose a MIDI out different from the "nanoKEY2 CTRL" MIDI output, so redirect it so MAX or a sequencer, and you might be able to reverse engineer the format of the SysEx dump or other messages it uses to talk to the hardware.
I am able to get the nanoKonrtol info into the patch. Not sure if that’s what that’s the issue is… but attached, a little patch of how I use the nano.
I’ve been trying to use a toggle to control lights on the Nanokontrol.
I receive CC23 and values 0 or 127 for on or off when pressing the button but sending the same message out doesn’t cause the light to change.
here’s what has been working for me:

Thanks Antialias, do you have the new Nanokontrol? I’m working with the first one.
Your patch looks like it’s just about setting the right device as in/out which I’m sure I have working fine.
I can’t find an option in the editor to allow ‘external’ input for the buttons. I’m thinking this is just for v2.
