It doesn't look like it to me. Have a look at page 793 of the param guide. If you reset the CC's to default, KARMA scenes look like they become remote-controllable. But it is a single CC (#30 by default), and it uses the value (0-7) of that CC to determine the scene.

I don't think the NP2 is that configurable. Looks like it can send CCs from the pads but will only send a 0 or 127.

Of course I don't have a NP2, so I'm not the expert for sure. Actually trying to figure out if it's worth picking one up so thought I'd look into it.

Just curious... why do you want to do this when there are already dedicated buttons on the K for switching KARMA scenes? I'm sure you have a good reason but it's eluding me. Smile

Yes, that's my analysis also. At this point I'd be surprised if that's not the final analysis.

When working with the KARMA software (rather than just the Kronos itself) I'm used to having chord pads and scene pads right next to each other (on the NP2) placed at any convenient location of my choosing. If that were possible when working directly with the Kronos only then I would want to do it. That's all.

CC#s can be sent from the nanoPAD2 pads, but only having the value 0.

The XY pad allows CC# messages containing non-zero values to be sent. Although Karma scenes can be changed using the XY pad, it's a completely impractical method for controlling Karma scenes on the Kronos. Even with the velocity curve set to "heavy", all the Karma scene changing action happens at one end of the XY pad and is imprecise, to say the least.

Interestingly, the original nanoPAD appears to have the ability to set individual on and off values for CC# messages generated by each of the pads. This is based only on the Korg Kontrol Editor's user interface behaviour for the nanoPAD. Whether the hardware itself works like this in practice is another matter but the nanoPAD has only 12 pads, and the Kronos will grab the first 8 to map to the Kronos' "chord pads".
