Incredible USB MIDI pad controller with 16 velocity-sensitive pads in MPC-style.
Perfect for importing drum and percussion parts.
Includes USB cable and padKONTROL mapping software.
The MIDI studio controller from Korg lets nothing stand in the way of expression or emotion. The padKONTROL is a versatile controller, with 16 velocity-sensitive trigger pads that can produce dynamic drum and percussion sounds.
The X-Y pad adds breathtakingly real-time control of both flam and roll timing, but that's not all they can be used for. With the padKONTROL, you can utilise both software and hardware tools in a way that you would not have expected. The padKONTROL can be used as a remote control for a software-based audio workstation, as well as for the real-time control of many creative aspects. With the included "Editor Librarian" programme, you can save your "scene" setting, as well as editing from the comfort of your computer. There are many "scenes" included, such as the TRITON series, OASYS by Korg, and other GM-compatible instruments. The padKONTROL is an amazing controller which will bring a rush of energy to creative minds.
The padKONTROL also has an optional foot switch function. This lets you send MIDI control commands or a note number, which enables the use of the foot pedal as a bass drum pedal, for example. The foot switch can be used in almost the same way as the trigger pads, with the exception of the velocity-sensitive capability.
The padKONTROL is powered via the USB cable from the computer. As the padKONTROL can also act as a USB-MIDI interface, it can be a hub for all of your MIDI devices that do not have USB ports.
