I was using a Korg nanoKontrol2 USB controller with Cubase 8.5 prior to upgrading and it was working fine. After the upgrade to Cubase 9 it’s no longer working and I assume it needs to be reconfigured. Unfortunately, following the Korg instructions, I cannot get it working.
I’m using Windows10(64-bit) and Cubase9 Artist. The nanoKontrol2 is listed in Windows device manager. I’ve connected it when Cubase9 is running while pressing the SET MARKER + REW buttons and I get an audio ‘ding-dong’ tone suggesting it’s connected. I went to Device Setup and added a Mackie Control. I then went to the Midi input / output pull-down menus to select nanoKontrol2 … BUT THEY ARE NOT THERE!!!
There are no entries for the nanoKontrol2 in either menu.
Here are Korg’s instructions for Cubase:
While pressing and holding down the SET MARKER and REW buttons, connect the USB cable from your computer to the nanoKONTROL2.
Open the “Device setting” window in Cubase, and add “Mackie Control.”
Select nanoKONTROL2 for the MIDI In/Out ports used by “Mackie Control.”
Any idea what’s wrong?? It’s the kind of thing that once it’s configured it just works and you forget about it. But now I need to get it working with this new version of Cubase and I’m stumped.
Any help would be appreciated.
