Nord lead 2 external midi controller

Post by septopus » Fri Nov 17, 2006 7:26 am

so i have a Nord Lead 2 (not the rack) and i was wondering if anyone knew if it were possible
to use a midi controller with it.
yes, it does have its own keys but i was trying to control the program change with an external device
since the Nord only has up/down for program change control and that can be difficult to switch quickly live.
i also have a Roland AX-7 i wouldn't mind using with it.

so yeah, if anyone knows if i need to do anything to make it work, please let me know.

The Nord should just accept program change messages over midi; bank changes are midi control 32 according to my manual. Depends on your controller device how those are sent.

Sorry i can't be more useful; I have the 2x, and it's perfectly happy with my crappy old midi controller keyboard sending it messages in its awkward, clunky way.
