Hi folks, I’m having some trouble with the Korg Nano Kontrol 1 in Cubase 5, using a Line6 Toneport UX2 usb audio interface.
My friend gave the nano to me as he no longer needed it. No matter what I do, the software just doesn’t seem to respond to input from the nano. I’ve followed a few different YouTube and web ‘guides’ but to no avail.
So far I’ve done the following:
Installed driver with nano disconnected
Connected nano via usb
installed Korg Kontrol Editor (KKE)
Started KKE - system detects NanoKontrol 1 when starting KKE, opened NanoKontrol1 editor
Assigned individual CC#s to each of the faders, buttons and knobs
Started Cubase 5, opened new empty project, added and labelled 4 audio channels (guitar 1, 2, lead, bass)
Click Devices > Device Setup > MIDI Port Setup. Check that nanokontrol midi in and out are active. See img 1)
Click ‘+’ above devices list and select Generic Remote
Select NanoKontrol from drop down menus for MIDI in/out at top of window. In/Out shows as “nanoKontrol 1 Slider/Knob” and “nanoKontrol 1 CTRL” respectively. However on some of the guides I’d seen, they show as just “nanoKontrol” ---- See img 2).
In the top frame:
Edited Control Name fields - Fader 1-9, Pan 1-9, Mute 1-9, Monitor 1-9, Play, Stop, Rew, Fwd, Rec, Punch In
Selected ‘Controller’ in the Device field
Set MIDI channel to 1 for all channels
Set Address fields to match CC#s in KKE
In the bottom frame:
Edited Control Name fields to match those in the top frame
Set the Device fields to VST Mixer for channel faders, buttons, and knobs
Set the Device fields to Transport for play, stop, rec, etc
In Channel Category I selected the corresponding channel to be controlled (guitar 1, 2, lead, bass)
In Value/Action fields, I selected the relevant action for the task, (volume, panner, mute, play etc)
Unused or unassigned controls in the top frame were edited to be named “null” and have the address 64.
Those same controls in the bottom frame were also named “null” and listed as Not Assigned in the Device field.
Clicked Apply then OK.
The MIDI input monitor shows MIDI In activity when using some, but not all of the controls on the nano. Some of the buttons light up and others don’t, and some of the buttons activate different things to what I expected.
I suspect I may have got something wrong in the device setup menu.
What am I missing?
MIDI channels all set to 1?
Help!? Please?! Cheers
