    Default Can you control led brightness in nanokotrol 2?

    Hi!

    I'm thinking about getting a korg nanokontrol v2, but I want to know if you can control the led brigthness via midi cc.

    anyone knows?

    also, is usb class compilant right?, or do I need any special software to work with it, like automap in novation controllers? (I don't like that)


    Cheers!

    I do not believe so... you can change how the LEDs behave in the nano editor but I'm pretty sure they DON'T receive LED feedback...

    the NanoKONTROL 2 can recieve MIDI messages to trigger leds n such, but I'm not sure about brightness...

    Yeah it's a bit of a bother. If you download the Kontrol Editor, open up your NanoKONTROL 2 settings, go to the global settings (the box with the "--" in the upper left corner of the NanoKONTROL) and set LED Mode to "External", you should be able to trigger the leds with MIDI out messages (usually the same CC message as the button sends in).

    Hi!, thanks for the answers, the version 2 of nanokontrol can recive midi led feedback.

    This is what the manual says:

    LED Mode:

    Internal: The LED will be lit or unlit according to the button’s on/off status.

    External The LED will light-up or go dark when a message with the control change number or note number that’s assigned to that button is received from the
    computer. The LED will light-up when an On Value or Note On message is received, and will go dark when an Off Value or Note Off message is received.

    I made several searchs, and I don't know yet if you can or not control led brightness, I found this video, a really cool meter for traktor.

    Are the leds fading? or its just the blinking? what do you think?


    Cheers!, and sorry for my english
