Some Kontrol users may have a few issues when getting started with Melodics (for example, you may not be able to map it, some or all pads may not work for a particular lesson, or pads trigger incorrect hits). This is because Kontrol is awesomely customisable, and supports lots of different mappings – not all of which work with Melodics. Fear not, we'll have you up and running in no time.
