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 wanted something that would fit in my backpack comfortably for composition on the go, and this fits the bill nicely. It has just the basic controls I need, and without the pitch joystick that can so easily break off the other brands. When I first saw the keys, I thought I might keep missing them, but it turned out to be easy, just a little different from a full-sized keyboard. It's now one of my favourites.
It's ok. I had to take it apart and 'mod' it in order to get anywhere near the sensitivity out of the drum pads that I needed, otherwise the velocity curve was pretty much non-existent. This was not helped at all by the fact that the tiny screws used to fasten the casing to the main board inside were insanely tight, forcing me to go and buy a specific screwdriver for the job so that I didn't wring the screws and render the device unusable.
I layered 2 strips of masking tape over each row of pads (there is a youtube guide to show you how) and then when I reassembled the device, I then had the full dynamic range, or at very least a much better dynamic range from the pads.
If it had have functioned this way out of the box I would have given it 4 stars, but 2 get deducted for being such a hassle to make it work as it should have out of the box.
This is a great tool for the money and it does what I need but the 50mm faders are a bit short for me. It will be great to throw in the bag to do things on the go but I would like longer faders for the studio. All the controllers with longer faders (I have seen) are significantly more expensive than this so this is great if you are on a low budget.
This controller is what I have seen many serious composers using as an expression / volume / dynamics controller when composing music in a DAW. Fantastic for portability when using with a laptop on the go, or when in the studio. A very popular addition to any composers tool kit. Love it.
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.
Great once set up! Does everything I want it too however had to map everything cubase from scracth as the stock settings didnt do what i wanted. However that also shows the versatility of the gear! Cant fauly it now im up and running. The set up was long however
This came in really handy when I was doing a project at uni mixing sound for video, helped speed up the workflow and just generally a lot more interesting to use than messing around with a mouse and moving faders on individual channels. Obviously not as good as something with motorised faders, but you will be looking to pay at least 10 times the price for that luxury. This is great value for money and easy to set up.
