Default Korg NanoKontrol

I've just bought a Korg NanoKontrol, predominantly to help control Mobius (and Reaper), and have hit a slight snag.

The problem I'm having is in getting Mobius to recognise certain commands. Specifically, I want to set some of the knobs to allow -12 to +12 settings of the RATE command (rather than the default -/+ 24), but I can't figure out how to get Mobius to respond to this. I don't know if anyone on this list is familiar with the Korg Nano, but the editor allows setting limits to the CC values. These settings can be saved, however, I don't how to get Mobius to read these settings.

I hope this makes some sort of sense to somebody.

Rate shift is not a bindable controller like output level and pan.

You can however create a "control script" that converts the MIDI
value from the knob into a rate shift.

!name Nano Rate Shift
Variable shift (float(midiValue) / 5.29) - 12
Message Rate shifting $shift
RateShift shift
I can't test this right now, but the idea is that "midiValue" will have
a value from 0 to 127, this gets divided by the 5.29 which is 127 / 24
(the number of "chunks" in the range) then offset down by 12 so you have
a range of -12 to 12 rather than 0 to 24.

Register this script then in MIDI Control assign the Nano knob to this script.

Well, I was trying to get my Nanokontrol to talk to Mobius buut the Korg driver can be a bit iffy and it is also port specific. I figured all that out and eventually managed to figure out the differences between a few different things. Even I wanted to kick my own ass this morning. Just goes to prove what a good night's sleep can do. It is all working out grand now. I haven't tried it with the f/s just yet as it is still an unhoused mass of haphazard wiring. It should be ok though. I'm a bit fried from spending all that time at it but at least now the Nanokontrol talks to Mobius and I feel good!!! Real good.

Jeff - this software rocks! It is the business! Truly, madly, deeply!!!
