Komplete Kontrol S61 MK2 - sustain pedal only works with a PC connected?
I would like to connect my S61 MK2 via MIDI out to a Korg Nautilus, having the S61 function as master and the Nautilus as slave. The connection is a MIDI DIN 5-pin to DIN 5-pin, and the S61 is powered by a power supply.
My sustain pedal M-Audio SP-2 is listed to be compatible with the S61. The S61 has two pedal slots, Pedal A (sustain) and Pedal B (expression).
I now have the S61 playing sounds off the Nautilus, but the sustain pedal is not working!
If I connect the S61 to a PC via USB (with Komplete Kontrol installed), then the sustain pedal works. But as soon as I disconnect the PC again, the S61 kind of goes stand-by – but with the ability to play sounds from the Nautilus, blue LED lights, pitch bend and modulation wheels. But no sustain! I have tried numerous sustain pedals with the same result.
I also have an expression pedal, Roland EV-5, and connected to the Pedal B slot on the S61… it works on the Nautilus sounds!!
It seems that the S61 only works when connected to a PC…. But I would like to have it confirmed, before I look around for another MIDI keyboard with a working sustain pedal.
Does anyone have any experience in this matter?
