Purchased this November 2018 to run with Cubase. Some issues to start with, buttons didn't work. But for the money I was happy. Now 7 months later it don't work at all. I upgraded to Cubase 10 and it stopped working. Contacted Kory support and they were quick to reply and inform me of the possible reasons for the issue. It seems the recent windows 10 update has buggered up the drivers. Korg are working on the problem and will be bringing out a new driver shortly. Will hang on and see what happens.
This is a very good product. It was easy to setup, construction looks solid enough and the size is truly great for a small space or for carrying around.
However, I bought it primarily for mixing in Cubase 5 and after hours upon hours of searching the web I can't find a solution to the simplest problem: as soon as you touch a fader on the Nanokontrol, the Cubase fader simply jumps to that value. This completely invalidates this device as a mixing controller.
I've read that other programs have a catch-up feature in which the value in the software fader doesn't move until the physical fader hits that value and then the physical fader sort of "catches" the virtual one. But Cubase doesn't appear to have this feature.
So, great piece of hardware, but do check if it's appropriate for the use you want to give it and the software you'll be working with.
Great product, my only compliant is korg couldnt be bothered to put a power on/off button on the unit, which would be ok, but you need to switch the unit off and on again while holding different keys to set its operating mode of either daw controller or cc controller. In the end i had to buy a usb hub with power on / off buttons to save me having to pull the cable out of the korg unit to switch it on / off . Apart from this , the unit is a joy to use.
I have tried everything on my pc & it wont work, even watching you tube videos & am not alone. I hear I would have to delete my usb drivers so it will work. its off to ebay. sure it works on some pc systems
This USB controller is great for the money. It's not got flying faders, it's not an Avid artist mix, it doesn't make tea, but as a device for creating MIDI for your virtual instruments I can't recommend this enough... All the buttons are completely assignable using the software can be downloaded. Build quality is satisfactory for price.
I bought this MIDI controller to use with GrandMA2 onPC as a way to live control lights.
Setting up this controller took some time, as it outputs CC values instead of Note's. GrandMA2 onPC does not support CC values, so using MIDI-OX and LoopBe1 I had to convert these to Note's, which worked.
Now, I set it up to control the faders on Executor page 1.
It works perfectly, and for the price it is a really good product.
I have owned the NanoKontrol2 for 3 months now and I absolutely love it. It's logical layout is made up of 8 columns each containing a fader, rotary encoder and 3 buttons. It also has supposed transport controls to the left. The quality of the components though isn't too great, the faders and encoders do feel light and plasticky. However for £44 I really don't care. The controller allows me to program lots of MIDI control. It's layout is optimised for programming in DAWs however I have only programmed it within Traktor. Using it in two modes - a sample deck player and an FX controller. It works absolutely great and its size means I can pick it up while using and get really creative! For those starting to want to own some hardware of their own, this is a great option. And for those who want to expand the boundaries of control it is also a great addition.
I got this to use as a mixer controller for fl studio. If you are doing this DO NOT download the Korg drivers. All you need to do is set the NanoKontrol 2 to Cubase mode. Then you select it in Fl studio as mackie control rather than Nanokontrol 2 in the midi settings. Works superbly after that. Transport controls, faders, mute, solo and record arm all work.
Its good, buy one and combine with "Power mixer" for addressable volume control.
Midi device so it can be programmed to do anything. Bet you could play Mario bros if you cared enough to programme it.
The buttons on the left don't have a very nice feel and the toggle option in the provided software doesn't seem to work in the programmes I'm using. I haven't actually tried it with a DAC but I imagine the support is much better with one.
