Last chance to try and find out whats wrong with this Kore Controller before i decide it was an expensive bug ridden mistake and take pleasure in throwing it away. I have a Kore 1 Controller with Kore 2/Komplete 4 and Audio Kontrol 1 on my Intel 2,4ghz 4gb macbook running Snow Leopard. When i plug the kore controller in to my macbook, the controller screen will only show "press view for midi mode" and when i press "view" it jumps straight into midi templates and no matter what i press or do it will not do anything in Kore - why does it do this?. It started to do this for no reason over 2 years ago and i finally lost patience with it and stuck it in the back of the cupboard, i rediscovered it a few days ago and decided to try once more to get this problem sorted. It used to plug in and immediately work with Kore but for some reason i cannot get it to do anything. A couple of my friends had the same controller and they eventually gave up on it due to the many faults - is it worth taking NI up on the cheap offer update to Maschine?, or is this bug ridden as well?. Cheers. PS : edited info added below I posted up about this problem last year and EW replied with the following advice, "It is working normally. The screen you're talking about gives you the options available in MIDI mode- use the cursor to get to page and hit the control button. To escape it all, hit the view button, followed by control and enter. As far as working with Kore itself goes, just start up Kore; it will automatically switch over." I tried the above advice posted by EW (cheers for trying to help btw - appreciated at the time but i lost interest in trying to get the bloody thing to work)........ I can use the curser to get to page and when i press control the screen jumps to "CTL>Global" with a choice of glide/analog/tune/pchange/pbend parameters and if i press the down curser it changes to CTL>Oscillator A & B with the various parameters and so on. I tried your tip of pressing view followed by control then enter. I can press view then control at which point it jumps back to the Kore screen with "press view for midi mode" and if i press enter it does nothing at all, i've every possible combination of buttons but it makes no difference and as far as working with kore as per your tip above it most definitely does not automatically switch over. Anyone got any ideas?, for the very brief time when it did work i thought it was great but to be honest for what i paid for it i'm pretty annoyed to say the least, guess i should've listened to my mates.
