Anyone knows whether this can be done?
Appreciate any pointer to documentation (or undocumented) MIDI commands.
Most of the items of Style are remotely controllable via MIDI.
So I thought it would be logical that PADS and Performances would be supported as well.

But I have not been able to find the details.

regards Sri.

Just FYI.

The MIDI setup on PA600 allows for mapping an incoming track to one of the four pads. Now that appears strange, and I am trying to figure out its semantics and usage.

My guess is that it would be just a start/stop of a pad. But dedicating a whole MIDI channel ? for this function does not seem to make sense. There must be something more.

Korg could have easily handled this start/stop of pads like the way they allow Style and Transport elements to be controlled via Control Channel CC00/CC32/PC.

Anyways..

I would love to hear from anyone who is using this capability

You can only control STS via PC#.
You can control single sound on any track or pad.
Can't control pads or performance, but you can select via midi songbook entry which can hold everything.
You using NRPN messages.
check page 176 in Korg Pa600 User manual.

Thanks Nemik as I revisited this for some automation.

Your tip about using Song Selection as an indirect method of selecting a Performance was a great tip. It came in handy for me.

While Playing on the Keyboard,

I use Fingered mode for selecting/changing the Chords for a style and
getting accompaniments going, besides the "Percussion".

I am trying to do this remotely. I am able to turn ON the accompaniments,
by sending a Note ON/OFF on the Chord channel.

But after the Style is Stopped that note is still playing.

So I am wondering what the right MIDI message is for turning ON the chord/accompaniments and turning that OFF.

Hope my question is clear.

Thanks

Sri.

Might come handy note for later reference for how I got the chord change over MIDI from my Laptop code.

Set the Global Preference for Chords: Expert Mode
Split Point is C#3
Set Midi Channel 15 as Global and
Set Midi Channel 16 as control

From my Python Code

Sending Style Control commands over Channel 16
Sending Chord changing commands over Channel 15.
For example sending notes 24,28,31 for selecting C Major.
I had to keep these notes ON for at least 0.05 seconds for the chord to be recognized. So I send corresponding Notes Off after that delta time.
