SETTINGS

LIVE SETTINGS

The following settings will be found in Preferences on the MIDI/Sync tab.

1. Select MackieControl as a Control Surface. 2. Select From MT Player 1 as the Input and To MT Player 1 as the Output. 3. Select pKComponentSeries as a Control Surface. This will be listed at the bottom of the Control Surface drop-down menu. 4. Select From MT Player 1 as the Input. 5. Activate the Track switch for From MT Player 1. 6. Deactivate the Track switches for From MT Player 2 and 3. NOTE: If you will be using any of the 16 Scenes in Play (normal) mode, you will need to activate the Track and/or Remote switches for the padKONTROL's Input in Live. This is usually called "padKONTROL 1 PORT A" or "padKONTROL : PORT A (KORG INC.)".

MT PLAYER SETTINGS

The first time you use your padKONTROL in MT Player, you will need to setup the padKONTROL's ports. You are prompted to do this as soon as a Preset is selected in MT Player. However, if you bypass those prompts, you can access the settings by right-clicking on MT Player and selecting MIDI Settings. 1. From the Port Name menu, select "IN: padKONTROL 1 PORT A".

2. From the MIDI In port menu, select your padKONTROL's PORT A and click OK. 3. Go back into MIDI Settings. 4. From the Port Name menu, select "OUT: padKONTROL 1 CTRL". 5. From the MIDI Out port menu, select your padKONTROL's CTRL PORT and click OK. 6. Click the Restart button. You can learn more about MT Player in the pKC General Manual. NOTE: It is recommended that you launch MT Player, select a Preset and then launch Live. If Live is already running when you select or Restart a Preset, it is recommended that you enter, then exit MIDI mapping mode after selecting the Preset to re-initialize.

LDR ­ LIVE DRUM RACK

COMPONENT OVERVIEW

This Component provides 12 Pads for controlling the first 12 visible Pads in Live's Drum Rack. It also utilizes the concept of "Last Pad", which is the last Pad (Pads 5 ­ 16) that you pressed. This allows for some advanced functions such as Cycle Sequences and the 16 Level features.

2

PAD PARAMETERS

16 LVL VELO ­ The Last Pad will be assigned to all 16 Pads, each with a different velocity level. 16 LVL 2 ­ The Last Pad will be assigned to all 16 Pads, each with a different level of the assigned parameter. ASSIGN ­ Press this to see which parameter is assigned to 16 Lvl 2. You can select between the 8 IM Knobs (1 ­ 8) and Pitch Bend (Ptc) by holding this down and using the Encoder. FIXED VELO ­ Turns off the velocity response of the Pads. NOTE: Pitch Bend affects all the drums in the Drum Rack.

PADS

This Component includes 2 Cycle Sequencers. These allow you to record sequences up to 8 steps long and then play them back. CYCLE 1 ­ This Pad will play Cycle Sequence 1. On first press, it will output the first note in the sequence. On second press, it will output the second note in the sequence and so on. REC 1 ­ This will enable Record mode for Cycle Sequence 1. Press Cycle 1 to end recording. You can use Pads 5 ­ 16 for recording sequences. While recording, the Display shows how many steps you've recorded. This is replace-style recording so, if you exceed 8 steps, the previous 8 steps will be deleted. CYCLE 2 ­ Same as Cycle 1. REC 2 ­ Same as Rec 1. LAST PAD ­ These 2 Pads will trigger the Last Pad. This makes it so you have 3 Pads to use to play fast rolls and such. These Pads cannot be used while recording Cycle Sequences. PADS 5 ­ 16 ­ Control the first 12 visible Pads in the Drum Rack. NOTE: These features are not available when 16 Lvl Velo and/or 16 Lvl 2 is activated.

ENCODER

SCENE / SCROLL ­ In Session View, this will scroll through Scenes. In Arrange View, this will scroll the timeline. TEMPO ­ Adjusts Tempo in 1-BPM increments. UP&DOWN / LEFT&RIGHT / PLUS&MINUS ­ Sends up and down / left and right / + and - keystrokes. ENC SLCT ­ Press Shift to see the function the Encoder is assigned to. You can select between the Encoder functions by holding down Shift and using the Encoder.

NAVIGATION

LEFT/RIGHT ­ Left and right keystrokes. Useful for moving between Devices on a Track to select them for Instant Mapping. LOCK ­ Locks the IM Knobs to the selected Device.

TRANSPORT

PLAY/STOP ­ Play/Stop playback. On PC, when Live is playing, a dot will appear on the right side of the Display to indicate the first beat of each bar. UNDO/REDO ­ Undo/Redo. REC ­ Toggle Arrangement Record. CLIP REC ­ Use this to record perfectly cut Clips (Audio or MIDI) at the current Global Quantization value. For example, if Global Quantization is set to 2 bars, this will record a perfect 2-bar clip. This function is intended for the creation of new Clips, so Overdub should be turned off when using it. REW/FFW ­ Rewind/Fast-Forward. PREV M/NEXT M ­ Jump to Previous/Next Marker. LOOP ­ Toggle Arrangement Loop. CLIP/TRK ­ Toggle between Clip and Track Views.

4

NOTE: If a Pedal is connected, it will launch the selected Clip.

X/Y PAD

The X/Y Pad is used to control 8 IM Knobs.

MISC

X/Y HOLD ­ Hold the current value of X/Y. X ASGN ­ ­ Press this to see which parameter is assigned to X. You can select between the 8 IM Knobs (1 ­ 8) and Pitch Bend (Ptc) by holding this down and using the Encoder. X/Y ­ The X/Y Pad will function as normal. Y ASGN ­ Same as X Asgn. DUAL Y ­ The X/Y Pad will function as 2 vertical controllers (like sliders). NOTE: When you press Shift, the X/Y or Dual Y Button LED will light to indicate which function type is assigned to the X/Y Pad.

KNOBS

Knobs 1 and 2 are used for Instant Mapping (IM). This means that the Knobs can be used to control the first 8 parameters on the selected Device in Live. The selected Device is indicated by a hand icon on the title bar of a Device. By default, Knob 1 is assigned to IM Knob 1 and Knob 2 is assigned to IM Knob 2. You can re-assign the Knobs to other IM Knobs as described below. KNOB 1 ASGN ­ Press this Button and the Display will show the IM Knob (1 ­ 8) that is assigned to Knob 1. Hold this Button down and use the Encoder to select which IM Knob is assigned to Knob 1. KNOB 2 ASGN ­ Same as Knob 1 Asgn.

NOTES

The velocity functions (such as Fixed Velocity and 16 Lvl Velo) will have no effect if the velocity sensitivity (Vel) is turned off (set to 0.0%) in the Simplers within your Drum Rack. Here's an example of a compatible velocity setting:

You can adjust the velocity setting for each Simpler in your Drum Rack or create a default preset that includes the velocity setting of your choosing.

TROUBLESHOOTING

1. Why don't I see pKComponentSeries listed under Live's Control Surface drop-down menu? WINDOWS: On Windows, the pKComponentSeries script will have gotten installed during install of pKC. If it's not showing up, please try reinstalling the pKC installer. No need to uninstall first. OS X: On OS X, you are prompted to manually transfer the script during install. If you skipped that step or need to retransfer the script for some other reason, you can find it along with transfer instructions in: (your name)/Bome's Midi Translator/Player. 2. In the demo video I saw from you, you were using some functions that I don't have. Where are they? Presets evolve over time in regard to refinements and new functionality. In some cases, it's necessary to reposition existing controls to make way for new functions. We try to keep rearrangements to a minimum and any rearrangements will always be covered in the Preset's manual.
