Separating your midi controller. Help! :)


I have an akai mpk88 midi controller. It has 16 pads on it with sliders and knobs. I just got it.

Is there anyway to separate the controls for the drum pads and the keyboard? What I mean by this is when I'm recording is there anyway to play the drums and have a different instrument on the keys at the same time?

Does this make sense? I'm not quite sure how to word this properly lol

You can do keyboard splits with the NN-XT and map out your notes that way. You can use the Combinator to do some more advanced things but there is a section on this in the manual. Read the NN-XT section (and eventually read it all because it's fucking good).

Good luck with it.

[edit] you have to know which notes each key or pad is sending of course.
