    i have kontakt 5 /full, & a main midi controller keyboard & a secondery one (ni koplete m32)

    i want to play any library with the main keyboard and use the secondary as key-switches for the micro-tuning script , so when i press a key it detunes it not plays it

    is this possible?

    thanks you Uwe303, but actually it didn't help much .. his problem was the key switch on the same key-bed .. my main keyboard is novation impulse 61 and i can set the m32 in lower octaves than the navation and use it for lower notes and key-switches .. however the micro-tuning script has different assignments and when playing arabic the turning of the micro-tuning becomes rapid at the same time of performing .. there are 3rd party external hardware for this but those are crazy expensive for no good reason, like initially $400 .. i just thinking of using one of my midi controllers for this .. it seams it need coding and scripting and defining the controller in advance within the script .. but i'll try with midi-learn if it's available or can be achieved .. still i will face that i don't want the key-storks on the m32 to play notes

    So the key switches also trigger a note and result in a sound? So you would need to filter them out or something I guess if that's the proble.

    if i assign the keys on the m32 to the keys of the scale in the microtuning script it may still also trigger notes maybe

    i've found the scripts from orangetreesamples and gave a hint .. if midi learn is not possible then maybe it's about keyswitch routing and cc routing

    i don't know if i can post inks here

    for sorrow i couldn't find any way for midi learn on the interface directly, looks like it should be done in advance through the script maybe or load the kontakt duplicated into many tracks as need - some of them with the notes detuned and some are normal and then switch in between the tracks rapidly as needed

    and also there's the script within kontakt names limit key-range, this solved some of the case

    Unfortunately I'm not an Kontakt expert but EvilDragon actually is I'm sure if he reads this he can help you.

    You can right-click the Preset knob in the factory Microtuning script to MIDI learn it to a CC. Is keyswitching those presets an absolute must?

    thanks you, i know about that knob, but it switches the whole scale , in some phrases, i would switch a certain key twice within the same bar or in just very few seconds, it's not practical as switching keys directly, but its ok .. i wish i could easily assign the scale to keys of the m32 via different port or to the assignable buttons on the novation impulse

    thanks you EvilDragon, very appreciated :)
