    Korg KONTROL49 + Logic Pro 8
    Hello, I am in dire need of some guidance on this issue: My lovely girlfriend bought me a [b] Korg KONTROL49[/b] last Christmas so I could use it with Logic Pro 8. The problem is; I have no clue how to use it. Korg unfortunately does not supply any "beginners" advice on their site - they just assume you know [i]all[/i] of the basics, [i]and[/i] some deeper technicalities, about MIDI keyboards in general. This is the very first MIDI keyboard I've ever owned. The only thing [i]I[/i] can use it for is simply striking keys for recording MIDI data, but all of the other features are way too mind-bogglingly advanced for my understanding. This does not appear to be a beginner's MIDI board. I would love to learn how to use it, especially for [b]assigning the faders, pads, and knobs to the functions in Logic Pro 8[/b], but I cannot find any resources for this that don't already speak very advanced technical lingo. I own nearly all of the MPV videos on Logic Pro (even from back when I used LP 7), and I could've sworn I saw a chapter on "learning" functions to your MIDI keyboard, but I forgot where I saw it and cannot seem to find [i]that[/i] tutorial. Can anyone point me in the right direction on how to use my Korg KONTROL49 to it's full potential for Logic Pro 8? It really bums me out that I have such an incredible MIDI keyboard, but don't know jack about it. I deeply wish to learn and love this keyboard for all it's worth. Thank you!!

    Hi Deep Deon Assigning a fader, pad and knob on your Korg can be just like assigning key commands in a way... For example, say you want to assign a knob to control the pan on a channel strip... 1. Move the "pan" pot on the channel strip. 2. Choose: Logic Pro > Preferences > Control Surfaces > You should see "Learn Assignment for Pan" select it (Cmnd-L) 3. Make sure Learn Mode button in lower right of window is highlighted grey. 4. Move a knob on the Korg to assign the pan control. 5.close the window... You're ready to go! You can also assign controls from any of the plug-ins too in the same way. By the way, there is also a "Learn" button by default in the menu bar at the top of the Logic Interface... Enjoy! Rounik
