Adding another dimension beyond traditional keyboard control, the padKONTROL is the most expressive and versatile drum pad controller ever!In addition to accessing drum sounds and samples, the padKONTROL MIDI studio controller from Korg can also control softsynths and effects, trigger loops and video clips, and even act as transport controls for DAW software programs. Combining an assignable X-Y touchpad that also provides for natural-sounding flams and rolls, sixteen great-feeling illuminated trigger pads, assignable knobs and a footpedal input, the padKONTROL provides unsurpassed evocative control.The padKONTROL MIDI studio controller is ideal for creating natural, organic sounding drumbeats. Each of the sixteen pads can be individually assigned a note number and MIDI channel so you can control a single drumkit or map it to control different devices in your setup at the same time. Eight different dynamic curves are available for each pad, or you can set each pad to its own fixed level. This allows you to set up certain instruments to feel as you like, and others to always play the perfect velocity, no matter how you strike the pad. You can also set up multiple pads to play the same drum but at different fixed velocities, giving you varied but predictable performance every time.In this MIDI studio controller, drums are just the beginning. A MIDI message can be assigned to each pad, and they can be set for momentary or toggle operation. In addition to sending a value as the drum pad is touched, a specific value can be sent as the pad is released, so they can be used like buttons or switches to control any function on your soft synths and DAWs.Thankfully, once you have all the controllers set the way you like, you can save the entire set of assignments as a ‘User Scene.’ Sixteen User Scenes are available in the Korg padKONTROL itself, and they can be quickly selected using the pads. In addition, thirty preset scenes are included, designed to instantly match the padKONTROL to some of the most popular music software programs.The Korg padKONTROL also comes with free Editor/Librarian software for Windows XP and Mac OSX. Using the computer’s graphic capabilities, the Editor/Librarian software makes it easy to create, store and organize vast libraries of scenes and ‘scene sets.’Korg is resolved to continue to create innovative and uncompromising instruments which maintain the high quality that inspires professional artists and creators, and yet are approachable enough for anyone to play. The musical instruments Korg will deliver are reflections of the ideas and values of the many artists and users who continue to love Korg products – now and into the future.16 great-feeling, illuminated trigger pads – each can control a different note or Continuous Controller message – control software instruments, effects, trigger loops, video clips, and moreEight dynamic curves for each pad or individual fixed level, and each can switch from momentary to toggleBuilt-in X-Y pad, based on Korg’s KAOSS Pad, to control flam, roll, and much moreReally easy to use – every function is clearly marked and easy to find Bright LED display provides instant visualfeedback, such as the velocity level just playedIncluded editor/librarian software lets you tweak and customize from your computerTwo assignable knobs can control delay, panning, or any other MIDI-controller functionFootswitch jack gives you more options for note entry and control16 Scene locations can hold your own settings, or you can load any of the 30 presetsSPECIFICATIONSControllers:16 velocity-sensitive trigger pads with LED illumination;X-Y pad; two assignable knobs; assignable pedal jack (requires a separately-sold DS-1H or PS-1)Display:7-segment, 3-digit LEDMemory:16 user scene memories;30 preloaded scene templatesConnectors: Pedal;MIDI In/Out; USB (type B);power supply jack (DC9V)Power Supply:DC9V;AC adapter (optional);USB bus power (when using the USB connector)Current Consumption: When using USB bus power: approximately 150 mA (maximum 180 mA);when using an AC adapter: approximately 150 mA (maximum 180 mA)Dimensions: 2.17″ H x 12.36″ W x 9.21″ D
