Overview

The Korg padKONTROL adds another dimension beyond traditional keyboard control for incredibly expressive and versatile pad control. In addition to accessing drum sounds and samples, the padKONTROL can also control soft synths, effects, and DAW transport controls as well as trigger loops and video clips. The MIDI controller and drum pad's assignable X-Y touchpad provides real-time, natural-sounding flams and rolls while 16 cool-to-the-touch illuminated trigger pads and assignable knobs give all the control you need.

Each of the 16 pads can be individually assigned a note number and MIDI channel, and you can choose from eight different dynamic curves as well as either MIDI or USB output for each drum pad. The display lets you know what you're doing at a glance while the illuminated pads visually groove along with your playing. You can save controller setups in one of 16 User Scenes in the padKONTROL and it includes 30 preset scenes.

The Korg padKONTROL drum pad MIDI controller also comes with free Editor/Librarian software.

Comments about Korg padKONTROL USB MIDI Controller:

The Korg padKontrol is my new best friend. Here's why I love this controller and have 2 of them: 1. lightweight - which is great for all the travelling I do 2. inexpensive for something that can control so many parameters and buttons 3. great sized pads that you can confortably strike with 2 fingers 4. illuminated pads and effects when they are struck 5. 16 direct-access scenes 6. footswitch port and usb power I can even practice and edit my performance on a tourbus or an airplane because of the usb power facility...need I say more?

Best on the market!

By Metal Falcon

from Sacramento, CA

Comments about Korg padKONTROL USB MIDI Controller:

I have used all the MPC style midi controllers out there right now and this one takes the cake! It is super easy to use and a whole lot of fun. The X/Y axis pad is awesome for flams and rolls. There is really no way to get a good roll without it! The unit is very sturdy and the software it comes with is a great added bonus. I strongly recommend the PadKontrol!

padKontrol is bangin'

By Trouble2k

from Atlanta, GA.

Comments about Korg padKONTROL USB MIDI Controller:

I bought this after I did a little research and compared it with the other drum pad machines out on the market. I was orignaly going to buy the M-audio trigger finger until I read that the pads on it are velocity sensitive on the entire pad like the padKontrol is. That alone makes it worth the buy. I found it very easy to hook up and get started. The pads feels great and really help creating realistic style drum patterns.
