OK, so I DL’ed the editor and it seems fine excerpt for one thing: the central touchpad is interpreted technically as a series of sliders.
I would have thought it was possible to make it act as a grid of buttons, but apparently this is a limitation of the external control mode.
But, nevertheless I made a layout for the Kaosspad, in which you’ll (hopefully!) be able to control a number of things.
- Mixer : control master volume, volume level and mute state for tracks
- Transport: basic play, stop, loop and edit mode.
- XYPad, for automapping the xy-pad device in Renoise.
Note: I’m not entirely sure what to do with a couple of controls - the dial in the uppermost left corner. BPM, perhaps?
And the button to the right is a placeholder, as the touchpad can transmit a message when the touchpad is touched.
(it would seems like a perfect match for the Repeater application, being able to sense when the finger is released,
but I need to make a few modifications to that application first).
Just download the file, and extract it inside the “Duplex/Controllers” folder (you can reveal the tool folder from within the Tool Browser in Renoise by right-clicking)
The layout comes with a preset for the KP, which I saved from the editor, located in the “KaossPad3/Preset” folder. I hope it’s the right version I was using?
