So i know ive been emailing you about this but maybe if its answered on here it will help more people who download this software be able to set it up quicker. I am running 32-bit Vista with Ableton 8 on a Lenovo T61p laptop. Either way...
So after i have installed the midi yoke driver and the software installer emailed by you I am at a loss. I wrote the template for KontrolEditor to my nanopad that was in the install folder, but im not sure what settings to use on the BMT files. Which application am I supposed to use: the strum, scale, route, or chord? if I set them all to nanopad for MIDI in and midiyoke1 for MIDI out it comes up with error messages about not enough memory or that the nanopad is not plugged in. When i open route and set it up for nanopad in and midi out, the settings window of npSCS comes up, I can toggle between the left column of settings and the right column, but the middle column doesnt work and ableton doesnt recognize a midi signal coming into it.
Again, I'm sorry for asking so many questions and this is making me feel really dumb so hopefully im not the only one, either way thanks for any help you can offer.
You don’t need to do anything in nPSCS’s folder. Upon installing, all the settings that pertain to nPSCS are handled automatically except for the scene transfer. The installer will prompt you to manually transfer the scenes. After install, you would launch nPSCS via the desktop or start menu shortcut it installs.
I’d suggest reinstalling nPSCS so that its settings can be set correctly. After install, launch it using one of the shortcuts and then follow the setup instructions included in the manual. You can access that from the start menu.
I understand everything now, but do you have any idea why i always get the error message about no Nanopad driver on my computer. I did what it said and uninstalled the driver, reinstalled the one from the korg website, but it still doesnt work. I dont have nine midi devices installed on my computer, so i dont think thats it.
One thing I am noticing is that it automatically installs a driver for the nanopad the second i plug it in, so after i uninstall the old one, and before i can install the one for the korg site, it automatically installs a driver. I dont understand how if the korg driver installer says that it was successfully installed why i still cant install your software.
As soon as you plug any Korg controller into a USB port, a standard driver gets installed (you can’t stop that from happening). Once that’s been installed, then you install the Korg driver.
If you’ve tried that already and it still isn’t working, you may have hit the MIDI device limit in Windows. To clarify, that doesn’t mean that you have 9 physical MIDI devices. For example, if you’ve plugged the nanoPAD into 2 different USB ports, then Windows considers that 2 different devices.
You can fix that with the uninstall utility that comes with the Korg driver. Just remove any duplicate or any unneeded entries and then try to install the Korg driver again.
Sorry to hear you’re having troubles. If you’re getting an error message saying that your nanoPAD cannot be found, this is due to your nanoPAD’s driver not being installed. Info on how to fix that is in the post right above yours. Please try that and let me know how you make out.
Okay, let’s leave nanoLive and Live out of the equation for now, so close them. When you launch nPSCS, what happens? Do you get an error message? If not, try switching to Scene 2. Does it bring up the menu?
Then your nanoPAD’s driver is not installed. It sounds like you’re using the standard driver that gets installed when you initially connect the nanoPAD. nPSCS requires that you use the driver supplied from Korg. Korg also recommend using that driver.
So get that installed (info in this thread can help you with that) and then uninstall and reinstall nPSCS.
I’m sorry, but I don’t really follow what you’re having trouble with. You’re saying that you’re getting an error message upon launching nPSCS, but that you can still bring up nPSCS’s menu by switching to Scene 2? That doesn’t add up, so if you could clarify that, I’d appreciate it. And, for now, let’s continue to leave Live or anything else out of the equation.
I have made progress, I needed to install korg kontrol editor, it is working now. The only thing is when I use it in ableton, the xy pad controls the fader in track 1. I must have a setting wrong or something.
Good to hear. Because things got out of sequence, a file in nPSCS’s installer most likely didn’t execute. I will send that to you now and it will solve the issue you’re talking about, which has to do with your settings for nanoLive.
