ahh this is killing me!

so I decide to do the 6 wire method as I was already half way through doing it anyway, the computer reads the touch pad no problem.

the Kaoss pad however -.-"

it just wont...

If I change the midi signal to


I can control the setting the touch pad is on (the command Im hoping to use for the encoder.)

but when I put it back to midiCC(0xB0,12,touchX);

its just wont bloody work! i have literally tried everything...im just completely out of ideas as to why its not working... Every single midi site ive gone to has basically told me that the command is correct.

pheh....a little help anyone?



so I just wrote and used a program that went through every single midi signal in the CC list... none of them triggered the touch pad, im really confused now...

midiCC(0-255,0-16,fixed constant)

thats the combination i went through.

I know you're probably super frustrated, but just some troubleshooting:

Did you put the KP2 into MIDI control mode?

Gareth said something about mapping out the midiCC to a certain coordinate on the X-Y touch screen, although it seems that the program you made showed that it isn't the pad's fault.

I'm out of ideas for the moment. I'm rooting for you! Because I'd like to make one myself :)

Maybe try it with a DigiTech Whammy as well?

How's the LED control and the Hold switch going?


i havent tested it on the whammy, but im assuming it will work, i may do that now and post the results.

the back light LED is actually alright to work with, the hold button im not sure about either.

the only midi message the kaoss pad has received so far is the effects change...and thats the easiest one to send as its only like 1 value.

argh i wish i knew what i was doing wrong.

anyway im gonna go try the digitech whammy.

Was the KP2 in MIDI receiving mode?

Also, I think the Whammy is mapped differently, which is why Gareth's kit involves pressing the encoder to switch control between a Kaoss and a Whammy. One channel won't control the device it's not intended to.

But getting it with the whammy will be progress!
