To my chagrin, it is not. Expressive X-Y pad offers dynamic control for natural sounding flams and rolls. I had to get the basic padkojtrol off the Korg Site, but the promised software that one would need to get any kind of use out of this unit was not included.
Somewhat less ‘solid’ that I’d prefer, but great nevertheless. Overall I love this thing and would definately recomend it. If you have Windows 7 32 or 64 bit don’t be fooled by the default drivers assigned to this device, they are BAD.
The korgg provides sixteen great-feeling trigger pads that are excellent for dynamic drum and organic percussion performances; an assignable X-Y pad that also provides for natural-sounding flams and rolls; plus a pair of assignable knobs — all letting you breathe musically expressive life into your software instruments and hardware MIDI sound modules.
Moving a finger from left to right increases the speed of the roll, or the distance between the notes, while moving up the pad surface increases the volume of the roll, or the volume of the second note in the flam. I still haven’t managed to get some of padkontrpl functions to work as expected. The USB cord included sticks out from padkkntrol back of the unit entirely to far.
Assign two independent control messages to the X-Y pad for dramatic realtime control. Another thing that is great is that the controller actually can show up as two seperate controllers on your computer. Toggle or momentary operation allows the trigger pads to act as function pqdkontrol, transport controls, or to be assigned to various control change messages.

The footpedal input is assignable! Enter new zip code to refresh estimated delivery time. The controller is ideal for creating natural, organic sounding drum beats. Each of the 16 pads can be individually assigned a note number and MIDI channel allowing you to control a single drum kit, or map it to control different devices in your setup at the same time.
Don’t know if I’m suppose to be able to? Main Features Sixteen trigger pads for playing realistic drum padkontfol with natural dynamics.
Rated 3 out of 5 by John Bonnell from Mostly great, but hard to set up For the money, it’s hard to beat. Pads are very nice, padkontrpl feel.
If you do that programing it to the software you’re using should be a sinch. I teach private reason and protools lessons with a main focus towards controlerism. A well documented problem is the octave shift in its midi numbering.
The X-Y pad adds real-time control of both flam and roll timing and dynamics. Sometimes it just doesn’t seem to want to do what it’s supposed to.

The main con that I’ve come across is when you’re jamming a padkontfol too hard you’ll sometimes get crosstalk between the pads, but for that to happen you have to really hit a pad excessively hard. In addition to playing drum sounds and triggering samples, the padKONTROL jorg take on many other tasks — even acting as the transport controls of DAW software — making it the ideal choice for any cutting-edge creative environment or live performance scene.
Setting it up is fraught with problems though. You don’t have to mash the thing to get a note to register.
Best to avoid all of the cheap Korg products. An assignable pedal jack allows a pedal to be used as an additional trigger such as a Kick Padkkontrol or as a control source. Once you do get it to work, it’s great, but it’s not a out-of-the-box-fuzzy experience.
The thing I like about this controller compared to other pad controllers on the market is the sensitivity. Another point to note is that it won’t pass midi signals through the midi port without external power, which paskontrol does not include. No Longer Available Update Location close.

And it generally works fine for tapping out things. Rated 3 out of 5 by Richard L. With the addition of an optional footswitch you can add real kick drum parts, or close an open hi-hat. This is a plus when using it with multiple softwares at the same time. Rated 5 out of 5 by cbsf from proffesional users only good for keyboard programming but not user friendly Date published: In addition I was assured that software would be provided with this unit, it was not.
Update Unrecognized Zip Code. In addition to accessing drum sounds and samples, the controller can also control virtual synthesizers and effects, trigger loops and video clips, and even act as transport controls for DAW software programs. For example, I use it to control both Traktor Pro 2 and Ableton Live simultaniously by assigning the pads for different midi inputs. Emotional KONTROL The padKONTROL provides sixteen great-feeling trigger pads that are excellent for dynamic drum and organic percussion performances; an assignable X-Y pad that also provides for natural-sounding flams and rolls; plus a pair of assignable knobs — all letting you breathe musically expressive life into your software instruments and hardware MIDI sound modules.
Definately read the manual as soon as you get it. News Location Social Media. They should really have that option as a controller or Korg making a mapped pack for that controller Still haven’t been able to get sound from Korg Kontrol Editor.
