Troubleshooting Native Instruments KONTROL F1.

NI’s awesome KONTROL devices communicate using a special protocol, and can also be used as a MIDI device with the correct software installed – which is what we need to get it running with Melodics!

Before you start

In order to get going, you need to ensure that the Native Instruments Controller Editor is installed – this should have been done when you first set up your KONTROL.

Getting KONTROL F1 going
  1. Open the Controller Editor, select Template 1
  2. If template 1 has been modified, create a new template to select and use Templates h Edit h New
  3. If this still doesn't work, check you are in MIDI (not TRAKTOR) mode using the below
Model Switch to / from MIDI mode

And you should be ready to go!
