So there is already a thread about the nanoKONTROL but it’s a bit old and Ardour has changed a lot since then. I’ll start a new thread to keep this cleaner and less confusing.
I have recently setup Ubuntu Studio 18.04 and started playing with Ardour 5.12. I’m really impressed. This is amazing software.
I decided a control surface was an absolute must and settled on the Korg nanoKONTROL2 as an inexpensive option. It’s quite nice and very much worth the price.
It was extremely easy to setup with Ardour and over all I’m very happy with the entire process.
That being said, however, there is one small issue I’m not able to figure out.
Everything works, however I can’t seem to get the S/M/R lights to stay on. This thing comes from the factory with all the buttons set to momentary. This works the way I want in Ardor (one push on, one push off). If I change the buttons to toggle the lights do indeed stay lit after I’ve pushed them, however this doesn’t work correctly with Ardour. With the buttons set to toggle the second push turns the light off but doesn’t change the setting in ardor, I need to push it a third time and then the light comes back on even though the function is off in Ardour.
I tried adding momentary=no to the midi mapping file, but that had no effect.
Binding channel=“1” ctl=“48” uri="/route/mute B1" momentary=“no”
I’m not sure what to do at this point. It’s really annoying needing to go look at Ardour to see the status of mute/record.
