Updating MicroKontrol Infinite Encoders


    Jun 11 2008 | 6:25 pm
    I'm using a MicroKontrol's endless encoders to control knobs in Max. I want changes in Max to update the MicroKontrol's encoders.
    int[0-127] -> ctlout[cc#] doesn't seem to work.
    I'm guessing that the MicroKontrol won't allow Max to control it by default, but maybe there's something special I need to do in Max. Any ideas?

      From what I remember, the microKONTROL and its siblings only implement 2-way communication in Native Korg Mode (sysex-only).
      When using regular MK scenes, the microKONTROL cannot be updated by the app (and the messages sent by the encoders are not actually endless).
      The Native mode sysex documentation is available from Korg's website. You may find some patches posted in the archive here too.

      That's quite annoying. Might just make me sell my MicroKontrol.

      If you dont mind a little sysex programming, all aspects of the microKontrol can be programmed and updated. You can change the text in the LCDs, light up the pads ( with diff colors ) and use the main encoder...I have a padKontrol and have used native mode extensively and ill say it turns the controller into a completely different beast...

      did someone of you already write a kinda sysex based maxpatch for the microkontrol? would be even great to have a patch just for turning native mode on. i'd be greatfull
