I can't get my Blofeld to work with the Komplet Kontrol s61 mk2.

My Komplet Kontrol S61 mk2 is connected via usb and I put a midi out cable to the midi in of the Blofeld and no sound.

Put on the midi channel 1 of the Blofeld.

Most definitely forgetting a few things, but I don't know what.

Thank you in advance for your help.

There’s your problem right there. To use the KK as a standalone controller, you need to disconnect it from USB and power it with a (not included) power supply, or use the MIDI patch bay option above if you are connected to a computer (note: it never worked as advertised for me on my Mac).

What do you want to do, play the Blofeld standalone, or via a DAW (Midi-wise)?

If via a DAW: Just connect both via USB (to your computer), and select the KK as midi input and the Blofeld as midi output.

Thank you for your answers.

I would like to use the KK to be able to use my Vst and also be able to use it with the Blofeld.

The KK would serve me for both.

The problem with the usb I have highly audible parasites.

The Blofeld has MIDI over USB, doesn't it?

Indeed, the usb audio generates parasitic noise, why I would like to use the KK in usb for my vst and in midi for the Blofeld.

Parasitic noise? What the... ;)

I'm not talking about audio over USB, I'm talking about MIDI over USB.

Interference noise in my speakers.

As much for me.

It's a bit new for me.

So I don't really know how it works.

Why I'm talking about usb for my vst and midi for the Blofeld.

Give it a try. MIDI over USB, audio over the audio out of the Blofeld.

So get a USB midi interface for the blofeld.

Problem solved, right?
