hey there, i've got a question about the rk100-s keytar.

i use mine as a midi controller only, to play virtual instruments in ableton live. i thought it might be fun to use the short ribbon controller to control some ableton devices like filter cutoff or fx dry/wet and stuff. so i did some midi mappings

normally, if you manipulate a sound with the ribbon controller and then let go of it, the sound automatically goes back to its "original" state. BUT then something really cool happened: when i touched the ribbon controller and let go of it, the sound remained just like it was when i last touched the controller and it did NOT automatically go back to the "original" state whenever i let go of the controller (so i could in fact use it like an expression pedal, which was really cool and, in fact, a lot more useful to me than standard behavior).

the problem is: after restarting ableton and the rk100-s, i couldn't reproduce that behavior. i tried everything but it just won't work a second time. Does anyone have a clue why it did this / how i can achieve it again??

in case anyone is interested (i doubt it though Very Happy Very Happy ):

i found the solution. you have to connect the keytar to your computer, open the editor, open one of the sounds and switch "lock" to "on" in the short ribbon settings.

-> with this preset, the keytar will remember the position on the ribbon.

Sadly there does not seem to be a way to do this with the long ribbon controller, just with the short ribbon controller. Correct me if I'm wrong…!
