Assign two independent control messages to the X-Y pad for dramatic realtime control. Two independent knobs can be assigned to a variety of control change messages — such as pan or decay time. The USB cord included sticks out from the back of the unit entirely to far.

And kirg generally works fine for tapping out things. I teach private reason and protools lessons with a main focus towards controlerism. The footpedal input is assignable! Overall I love this thing and would definately recomend it. I still haven’t managed to get some of the functions to work as expected. This is a plus when using it with multiple softwares at the same time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Richard L. Definately read the manual as soon as you get it.

No Longer Available Update Location close. To my chagrin, it is not. Even using it without setting up often requires a trip to the manual. Eight different dynamic curves are available for each pad, or you can set each pad to its own fixed level. 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.


An assignable pedal jack allows a pedal to be used as padkontrrol additional trigger such as a Kick Drum or as a control source. Expressive X-Y pad offers dynamic control for natural sounding flams and rolls. Pads are very nice, great feel. I’ve had an m-audio trigger finger for several years and have been satisfied with it but not blown away.

Each of the 16 pads can be individually assigned a note number and MIDI channel allowing you to control a single drum kit, or padmontrol it to control different devices in your setup at the same time.

In addition to playing drum sounds and triggering korh, the padKONTROL can 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.

Can be programmed for transport control functioning. If you do that programing it to the software you’re using should be a sinch. A well documented problem is the octave shift in its midi numbering.


With the addition of an optional footswitch you can add real kick drum parts, or close an open hi-hat. Another thing that is great is that the controller actually can show up as two seperate controllers on your computer. Best to avoid all of the cheap Korg products.

Somewhat less ‘solid’ that I’d prefer, but great nevertheless. Once you do get it to work, it’s great, but it’s not a out-of-the-box-fuzzy experience.

Mapping the controller to DAW’s outside the presets that were given is almost to impossible. In korb I was assured that software would be provided with this unit, it was not.

Free Editor Librarian software is included, so you can edit and manage scene data directly on your computer. If you have Windows 7 32 or 64 bit don’t be fooled by the default drivers assigned to this device, they are BAD.

Don’t know if I’m suppose to be able to? The thing I like about this controller compared to other pad controllers on the market is the sensitivity. I had to get the basic stuff 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.

Thirty pre-loaded scenes provide instant compatibility with popular music software titles.
