  • NanoKontrol2 in Reaper - Midi worked for knobs but not sliders

    I just got the NanoKontrol2. I reset it to factory (press track left/right/cycle together). I then loaded up VB3 and found that it would learn the NanoKontrol2 knobs but not the sliders. I always try to keep drivers and software to a minimum so haven't yet loaded the NanoKontrol2 midi driver from Korg or the editor. Do I need to do one or both to get the sliders to control the drawbars? Or is there some other setting in Reaper or VB3 that will enable me to "teach" those drawbars how to slide B-)

    BTW, this forum was instrumental in directing me to GSI to download the VB3 demo and subsequently buy it. I've been hoping for years that someday I would achieve near B3 sound with a synth and this is it.

    I figured it out. I read the VB3 manual from start to finish. On nearly the last page it tells you that CC#0 can't be assigned (its the NanoKontrol2 default value for slider 1). BTW, the manual is well written and informative.

    I did load the Korg editor for the NanoKontrol2. I decided (might revisit) to use the Korg Kontrol editor to assign the sliders to unused CC# 102-109 (used knob above 8th slider for drawbar 9). The other good thing about running the Kontrol editor is to change the buttons from momentary to latching for the percussion and other rocker switches.

    I assigned the record button to latching mode for the leslie slow to fast / fast to slow toggle.

    I set other 7 knobs above the sliders to control Vibrato, Drive, Edge, Keyclick, Reverb and Tone

    I assigned the Arm Record buttons (R) to the on/off switches

    I found this CC list onlinehttp://nickfever.com/music/midi-cc-list.

    I'm not sure I needed to install the Korg driver but decided since most times the manufacturer driver is better. It was dated 9/22/2017 and specifically for Windows 10.

    On the last page of the manual are the default CC# values for each slider, knob and rocker switch.
