Use Your KORG USB Compatible Synths as Controllers on Vista

image The latest version of Korg's midi driver for windows, version 1.1.1, is compatible with Windows Vista. This means you can use Korg hardware with USB capability as controller to drive your DAW or virtual instruments. On a side note, I've been running Vista for over a year on my music production laptop and have almost no issues with Ableton Live and my many virtual instruments.

Off the top of my head, here is a list of Korg gear with USB capability:

I tested the driver using my Korg TR and it works great. Here is a snapshot of the TR inputs and outputs mapped into Ableton Live.


You can download the driver for all devices using this link –

If you are looking to purchase any of this gear online checkout Musicians Friend, ZZounds, Guitar Center.
