ofxKorgNanoKontrol v1

Korg Nano Kontrol version 1

If your device generation is different, you can give a try

There are differeneces between version 1 and version 2 in terms of MIDI control values. I couldn't make ofxNanoKontrol2 aadon work. So, I created my own addon for version 1 devices.

Currently in development mode. public methods are listed in ofxKorgNanoKontrol.h file.

For now,

int getVal(int _control, int _type = K_TYPE_SLIDER, int _sceneId = K_SCENE_1);

method can be used to get values from Korg Nano Kontrol v1 usb midi device.


There 9x4 sliders, 9x4 potentiometers, 18x4 push buttons and 7 addional buttons to mange scenes and control all of the inputs on Korg Nano Kontrol.

#####So, if you want to get the first slider value _control should be 0 or K_SLIDER_1 as follows;

getVal(0) returns int value from 0 to 127


getVal(K_SLIDER_1) returns int value from 0 to 127

#####if you want to get the tenth(Actually it's the first slider of Scene 2) slider value

_control should be 0, _type should be K_TYPE_SLIDER and _sceneId should be K_SCENE_2 as follows;

getVal(0,K_TYPE_SLIDER,K_SCENE_2) returns int value from 0 to 127


getVal(K_SLIDER_1,K_TYPE_SLIDER,K_SCENE_2) returns int value from 0 to 127

#####if you want to get the first potentiometer value _control should be 0 and _type should be K_TYPE_POT as follows;

getVal(0,K_TYPE_POT) returns int value from 0 to 127


getVal(K_POT_1,K_TYPE_POT) returns int value from 0 to 127
