KORE 2.1 is a free update that adds a MIDI Control mode that makes the KORE controller double as a versatile and completely customizable MIDI control surface.
With its eight touch-sensitive knobs and practical control layout, the KORE controller is capable both for sound manipulation and for sequencer control. With V. 2.1, the hardware can act as a control surface for any MIDI-compatible application, with or without the KORE software running. MIDI Control mode can be toggled on-the-fly with a dedicated button combination.
The Controller Editor application included in KORE 2.1 can be used to assign a wide range of MIDI commands to any knob or button on the KORE hardware. MIDI Control mode also supports the Mackie Control Universal (MCU) protocol, allowing the KORE controller to be used for DAW control with minimum setup effort.
Further enhancements in KORE 2.1 include optimized Pro Tools compatibility under Mac OS 10.5 and various fixes and stability improvements.
