NOTE: Since 2020 we are using the DUY Kaossilator firmware for pre-flashed orders on our website. Management of this firmware goes via our DUY Portal, not via the old DUY settings page.
This time the Korg Kaossilator gets a little rework. With this RK-002 firmware you can play the Kaossilator from a regular keyboard.
To be able to play the patches chromatically you need to set the Kaossilator to 4oct range and have the X/Y pad to their default CC values 12 and 13. (Thank you Leon Pierik for suggesting this and editing a proper pitch table!) Also set the kaossilator scale to ‘chromatic’.
You can crossgrade your RK-002 firmware below:
https://duy.retrokits.com/ – you can also check it’s mapping possibilities there. A 1-way settings page (if you don’t loopback the RK002 into the interface) can be found here: https://www.retrokits.com/rk002/settings/kos/duykos.html
Beware there is no actual feedback in this page telling you if the settings updated correctly (as opposed to our DUY Portal)
NOTE: To read out the RK002 cable on a computer you need a MIDI interface which can power the cable and is able to send MIDI System Exclusive messages
Buy the RK-002 cable
