I recently bought a small midi controller called the korg nano kontrol, to integrate into my live set. It has many knobs and sliders and some buttons. I have been trying to figure out how to use it with max and I feel like my brain is melting. I read several of the MSP midi tutorials as well as the Max Midi basics tutorial and I'm still really in the dark. It's especially bad because someone just showed me how to use the controller with Reason and it took less than 30 seconds to be assigning knobs and sliders to devices. Of course I realize MAx is a different beast .... but I feel Like I'm reading VCR instructions in German.
Basically how do I assign all the different knobs and sliders to different buttons and number boxes. When I open the Midi set up It seems like my entire device is represented by one name and I can give it one letter and ....... help.
