I wanted to share a few templates I’ve made for the Volca Beats and Volca Keys for the NI Komplete Kontrol S25 keyboard.
So far I can’t see how to use to assign more than 8 knobs per template so I’ve had to split them out across multiple template.
This is a major blow as so far it looks like you’ll need to take your hands off the keyboard and use your mouse to select between templates. Controller values will also rest to 0 when changing from template to template.
This could be fixed if we could use the bank select button next to the knobs but NI knows best. Hmmm.
I’ll be sure to update this post if I manage to overcome the seemingly bonkers restriction.
Here’s a list of the midi controls the volca’s offer:
VCO EG INT
VCF EG INT
LFO PITCH INT
LFO CUTOFF INT
PART LEVEL ADJUSTMENTS
(KICK, SNARE, LO TOM, HI TOM, CL HAT,
OP HAT, CLAP, CLAVES, AGOGO, CRASH)
(CLAP, CALVES, AGOGO, CRASH)
CLOSED HAT DECAY
OPEN HAT DECAY
Annoyingly there is no option for kick or snare pitch or decay. Could there be a way to mod this?
