I’m looking for more tactile/exciting MIDI controllers for live performance, and I bought a Kat KTMP1 Drum Pad (manual here), hoping to use it like a big Akai LPD8—that each pad could send a separate trigger through the VCV Midi-CC module.
Instead, since it’s designed to work with a DAW drum kit, it’s more like a keyboard with four assignable notes. Instead I have to use VCV Midi-CV, and each hit triggers the one gate, and each pad changes the v/oct value.
Is there a good way to split/route triggers like this based on pitch? Is there a MIDI module that might do this on its own? I tried quantizing the pitch value to select one of four steps in an ML switch, but that’s very unreliable and has latency .
Otherwise, suggestions for more appropriate trigger pad hardware? (Preferably in the same price range )
