[Ardour-Users] KORG NANOKONTROL

Ardour 3 uses MIDI binding .map files. The map file I created reads the
fader controls into Ardour banks. You can use the Ardour controls to switch
banks (1-9, 10-18, etc.) or use the "scene" button to advance to the next
bank. This can get confusing since the LED indicator might get out of sync
with Ardour. For instance, if your controller was left on Scene 2 and you
load a file, Ardour will actually be on bank 1. Incrementing bank will be
nano scene 3 and Ardour bank 2.
Because of this I've rewritten the file to ignore Ardour banking to more
easily track which bank or scene you're working from. This works well
because the NanoKontrol actually sends completely different codes for each
fader (pot and toggles) depending on the scene.
I need to check if panning has been implemented in A3 yet. When I first
created the map file it hadn't so I mapped the pots to be "Send Gain" which
will control the volume of the first send on a channel (if one exists).
Since the toggle buttons are unlabelled I chose to map them to Solo and
Record Enable. This is easily changed since the map file is a simple text
Oh, and of course the transport works as expected ;-)
