KORG NanoKontrol

I read in
that there is a ZynMixer driver but I do not understand how I can activate this driver to use nanoKONTROL for mixer

It should be plug & play, but you could check if the driver is loaded from the admin->MIDI-IN menu.
If it’s not, you can load by bold clicking the device. Please note that the driver is for nanoKontrol2. The nanoKontrol1 is not supported by this driver.

unfortunately mine is NanoKontrol 1

can I set all sliders,buttons to control mixer without driver?

Yes you can! All mixer controls can be mapped to MIDI CC control via the MIDI learn feature.

  • In mixer view, short press the third encoder from top on V5 or top right encoder on V4 to show the learn menu
  • Select “Enter MIDI-Learn”
  • Adjust a parameter with the touchscreen or encoders, e.g. first encoder for selected chain fader, second encoder for selected fader pan, etc.
  • Send a MIDI CC from the MIDI hardware controller
  • Repeat until complete (or you get bored - hence the preference for using a device driver)

MIDI learning settings for Mixer Learn is per single snapshot or can be extended as standard?

It is saved in the snapshot.

any suggestion to make them global?

It’s certainly been talked about informally but has not had any detailed consideration yet.

Please raise a feature request ticket in the issue tracker.

done, thanks

I defined CUIA for my NanoKontrol: setting buttons to generate notes on MIDI MASTER channel 16 so I can control my “naked” Zynthian.
But… my issue is about the “Select”; even if I defined the MIDI note A3 on a NanoKontrol button, when I press it nothing happens.
Back button, arrows work but “Select” NOT.

I defined another button-note to get “Select” but also this does not work.

It is a bug? Suggestion to fix it?

Where settings are stored?

I think this has come up many times… maybe we need to consider how to avoid the confusion? (It even confuses me when I try to explain…)

The “Select” action is not the same as pressing the “SELECT” encoder button or the “SEL/YES” button on the V5. To emulate this action you need to map to ZYNSWITCH 3.
