I have read all the treads on vista installation went to the midi yoke website linke an followed the instructions to disable uac and restarted the pc. Downloaded the latest installers for Korg Nanopad and midi yoke.
1. I pluged the nano pad in and it was detected and installed. 2. I installed the latest Korg Midi driver downloaded from the Korg website. 3. I installed the Korg Editor 4. Installed Midi Yoke that seemed to go well. 5. In stalled nPSCS that goes well until I try to start the application. The NanoPad received the 2 scenes with Ctrl+Shft+T
But when I start the application it says: Failed to open midi in device NanoPad 1 Pad Please connect the devices or select another one in the midi menu
Failed to open midi in device NanoPad 1 Pad: Failed to open Midi out device NanoPad 1 Ctrl. Please connect the devices or select another one in the midi menu.
I went to my programs and features section on Windows vista to make sure that the KORG driver was installed and it is listed as installed correctly.
Not sure what else I need to do to get this to respond right. Let me know what you can when you can.
It sounds like your nanoPAD’s driver isn’t installed, you’re using the standard Windows driver that gets installed when you initially connect it.
You can verify that in the Kontrol Editor. Go to Edit – Preferences and check the box to Set MIDI ports manually. Under MIDI IN, how is your nanoPAD listed?
If it is called “nanoPAD” or “USB Audio Device” then the driver is not installed. You can verify that in the nanoPAD’s manual.
If the driver is not installed, I’d suggest you first uninstall MT Player. Then go to Korg – Korg USB-MIDI Driver Tools – Uninstall Korg USB-MIDI Device. That will generate a list of all the MIDI devices on your system. If you see more than 9 listings, you’ll need to remove a few and then install the nanoPAD’s driver.
When you say uninstall MT Player you mean uninstall nPSCS right? I did not install MT Player, I just installed the Korg stuff, midi yoke, and nPSCS. Did I miss something? I did check the drivers and I did have more than nine listed I got rid of the ones that I am definately not using any more. There still are more than nine listed but the majority of them are greyed out and have nothing listed by them.
There are 19 total midi entries 15 of them have no device associated with it, they are just greyed out.
No, I meant MT Player, which you’re using with the pKC Series for the padKONTROL. Sorry for the confusion.
If you had 9 or more devices installed before installing MT Player, then you may not be able to install any more devices (like the nanoPAD’s driver) until you first uninstall MT Player.
So I’d suggest you uninstall it, get your devices in order (get your nanoPAD’s driver installed and remove any unneeded MIDI devices) and then reinstall MT Player via one of the pKC installers you were sent.
Thanks for all the help Stray. Man I don't know if it's just vista or it's just me or what. I could not get it going so I just returned my nano pad to guitar center and got an LPK 25. The padKontrol apps I got from you work perfectly, I guess the nano pad is not for me. Keep doing what you do Stray.
Sorry we couldn’t get it working for you. Installing Korg’s drivers on Windows can sometimes be problematic, particularly when a bunch of other devices are installed. I haven’t ran into a situation where the driver just couldn’t get installed though. I understand if you just want to stay with the LPK, but I’d also be willing to help you get the driver installed in the event that you reconsider.
i got Korgs driver installed, according to what windows devicxe manager says, but i still get failed to open midi port errors upon launching.
also, for the record: i don't have any MT player. i have an integrated installed from your website that didn't work. so now what?
well i figured out a way to get it to work it seems like with some googling and some swearing..
1: install korg driver.
2: run it's uninstaller and uninstall all drivers, which will delete multiple entries and get the paddriver down below #9, which is required.
3: reinstall the korg driver from your startmenu - all programs - KORG - KORG USB-MIDI Driver Tools - Install KORG USB-MIDI Device, this iwll ensure that your pad is using the right driver. You have to reinstall it, since the korg uninstaller deleted all duplicates in your registry and most likely deletes the pad driver as well. did on mine anyways.
5: install midi yoke (or re-install it if previously installed, since the korg unintaller uninstalls it).
6. Reboot again.
when you launch nPSCS you should now be error free.
also @stray, sorry if i was rude earlier, but it's a really nutsty day today and a product struggling with me just makes me rage heh.
not really rocket science this, but not really straightforward either. my guess is that if you have used several devices you will have to go through these steps, unless you would like to go registry hack your multiple devices yourself.
