Korg NanoKey Studio

I'm considerung to get Korg Nanokey Studio as my portable means to make music on the road. I already have Korg Nanokey2, which works fine with Android, but drains seriously my battery, so I'd like to use a Bluetooth MIDI device instead. Has anyone tried Nanokey Studio with Android? How does it work ...

Re: VA Beast and sustain pedal (CC 64)?

Well, hardware sustain pedals meant to be switches, and even modern hardware sustain pedals offer toggle between switch and continuous mode. Even first Yamaha Tyros couldn't handle continuous pedals connected intu Sustain jack (tested with Roland damper pedal DP 10 which features the switch/continuo...

Re: VA Beast and sustain pedal (CC 64)?

Sustain pedal was originally just an on/off switch, sustain pedal as a continuous controller evolved later. Maybe an option for making a sustain control a switch would be nice. Even today, cheaper sustain pedals are still just on/off switch, and the continuous ones offer the on/off mode for compatib...

Re: VA Beast and sustain pedal (CC 64)?

Let's finish our discussion. You might consider to keep it simple. Emulating accoustic grand piano is very hard, only few products make it right, and I don't think it's a purpose of G Stomper Studio/VA Beast. Sampled piano sounds are good enough for tracks created by G Stomper, I don't think many mo...

Re: VA Beast and sustain pedal (CC 64)?

You know, even Chopin was very embarassed when he was to play a piano without a sustain pedal. There is even a story how Liszt pulled a sustain pedal rod for Chopin when there was not a sustain pedal itself available, because it was being repaired. And you're promoting sampling abilities on grand pi...

Re: VA Beast and sustain pedal (CC 64)?

Re: VA Beast and sustain pedal (CC 64)?

Well, for us pianists has a Sustain pedal so default function we don't think about anything else. CC64 should be mapped to - well - sustain, for any other purpose there's separate controller named Foot Switch, which is assignable. Many a bit advanced hardware synths/machines have separate jacks for ...

Re: VA Beast and sustain pedal (CC 64)?

OK, in other apps sustain pedal works normally, so it's VA Beast's issue with that controller. Maybe I'm missing something in settings, though

VA Beast and sustain pedal (CC 64)?

I(m trying to use VA Beast as a MIDI playback device controlled from my external keyboard. Latency is good, but - does VA Beast respond to CC 64, i.e. sustain pedal? It's quite vital in Beta 5 with sampled voices, especially with pianos. I'm using the latest beta build and sustain pedal isn't recogn...
