    tbh I have never used it as I hated the way it made fx change everytime I played a note but I just tried it in KK and it doesn't do that, it just doesn't do anything at all. How do I make it work and is there a way to make it work manually (eg using knobs or buttons) instead of that mapped to keys thing which gets in the way if you are playing it in realtime while playing an instrument like I tend to with fx?

    Hi Kymeia

    It is not currently possible to use The Finger in KK as the required MIDI input cannot be routed to an FX slot. It is in our backlog as a topic for the future.

    Best,
    Tim

    OK tbh for me I'm not interested in the midi triggering anyway as its of no use when playing an instrument plugin so doesn't really sit well within KK anyway, a better option would be a live mode where it can be used manually with knob and button inputs, something more like Turnado

    Hi people. Does The Finger work at all in VST / Cubase? (C9.5 64-bit, Win7pro), It doesn't come up in the list of insert effects. The manual I found on-line is quite old and only talks about Kore Player. Haven't found any info on the forum yet...

    I worked on it some more, and there's a video that uses Ableton Live. This helped a little, so here's what I did in C9.5:
    - Select Reactor 6 Fx as insert in the audio track or instrument that you want to effect.
    - Choose The Finger from the list of Reactor effects.
    - Go to another MIDI track, and set its output to the Input of the of Reactor Fx.
    You can now use that MIDI track to control the effects set up in The Finger.

    It works! :)
