Nepheton Mapping to NanoPAD

Post by rollin » Sun Jul 18, 2010 7:18 pm

For the life of me I cannot figure out how to use the midi learn feature to make my Korg nanoPAD trigger sounds in Nepheton. I understand I can map the various parameters such as levels to my controller but I just want my pad controller to trigger the sound. For example, if I hit a pad on the nanoPAD it should play the BD. Second pad a SD etc.

I want to be able to write the midi data in Logic by using my nanoPAD to trigger the sounds of Nepheton.

How does one do this?

P.S. I'm on Logic 9 pro MAC OSX 10.6.4

Midi learn function is used only for Midi CC assignment. You need to re-edit Drum Map, so:

- save Drum Map (the default one) using Nepheton's functionality (to read more details take a look on manual)
- edit Drum Map within any text editor to midi notes that are assigned on your NanoPad. The Drum Map is just a human-readable XML
file. This is defaul Drum Map saved from Nepheton:

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<DrumMap application="Nepheton" ver="1.1" name="General Midi">
  <assign midiKey="35" instrument="BD"/>
  <assign midiKey="36" instrument="BD"/>
  <assign midiKey="38" instrument="SD"/>
  <assign midiKey="40" instrument="SD"/>
  <assign midiKey="61" instrument="LC"/>
  <assign midiKey="64" instrument="LC"/>
  <assign midiKey="63" instrument="MC"/>
  <assign midiKey="60" instrument="HC"/>
  <assign midiKey="62" instrument="HC"/>
  <assign midiKey="41" instrument="LT"/>
  <assign midiKey="45" instrument="LT"/>
  <assign midiKey="47" instrument="MT"/>
  <assign midiKey="48" instrument="MT"/>
  <assign midiKey="43" instrument="HT"/>
  <assign midiKey="50" instrument="HT"/>
  <assign midiKey="75" instrument="CL"/>
  <assign midiKey="37" instrument="RS"/>
  <assign midiKey="70" instrument="MA"/>
  <assign midiKey="39" instrument="CP"/>
  <assign midiKey="56" instrument="CB"/>
  <assign midiKey="58" instrument="LG"/>
  <assign midiKey="49" instrument="CY"/>
  <assign midiKey="51" instrument="CY"/>
  <assign midiKey="52" instrument="CY"/>
  <assign midiKey="59" instrument="CY"/>
  <assign midiKey="46" instrument="OH"/>
  <assign midiKey="42" instrument="CH"/>
  <assign midiKey="44" instrument="CH"/>
midiKey attribute in each definition of instrument is a midi note number that triggers instrument. Re-edit it accordingly to NanoPad mapping.

- save the file
- load Drum Map using Nepheton's functionality


Another thing you can remap NanoPad's pads using it's configurational tool to a Nepheton's default Drum Map.

Best regards,
