Recently I acquired a Komplete Kontrol A49, and I’m super happy with the functionality. Based on that experience I also bought the Mikro MK3. My intention was – like the A49 – to use it like intended within the NI software/plugin, but also use it as a general midi controller for Logic. This functionality works perfectly with the A49. For that reason it didn’t even cross my mind to think that this might not work for the Mikro.. which it doesn’t.. specifically the transport controls. In my mind (at the risk of upsetting a lot of users here ) the Mikro is in essense the same device as the A49, only with square keys and a nice compact desktop format. It’s surprising to me because the A49 is a cheaper tool that offers this functionality, but the Miro doesn’t. I guess there are some work-arounds one could apply, but not in a meaningful consumer friendly way. I'm also aware of the "MIDI mode" but it doenst offer nearly the same level of polished functionality as the cheaper A49. To me it seems like NI missed a step here, because I feel they will lose a lot of potential buyers that are looking for the same solution as me. I think this thing would dominate that controller segment if it only offered the functionality out of the box. After noticing this issue I’ve found multiple lows star reviews in webstores of ppl that returned the Mikro because of this lack of functionality, even though everyone (like me) seems to love the hardware. That makes it all the more frustrating that the software seems lacking. I’m probably shouting in the dark here, but is there any (real) intention of fixing this in the near future? Or should I (even though it would pain me) return the device?
