To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
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.
perfect. have used this on a regular basis for 2 years now and have had no issues whatsoever. definitely no keys falling out for me as some others have said and I haven't particularly been protecting it or gentle with it. thought i'd eventually even want to upgrade to a 'better' pricier one but haven't found a need to. i use it to compose/produce with Logic. love it!
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.
I have just left using Cubase after a number of years and moved over to Reason. With this nanokontrol 2 unit I just plugged it in, started up Reason, did a midi search and Reason found the unit, changed it's settings and was ready to use straight away. Just how plug and play really should be - but often isn't.
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 is not a keyboard. It can not be played with any degree of keyboard technique. In many ways it less usable than the keys on the qwerty board. Do not buy this, buy some thing that at least functions as a piano keyboard would. Also, buy a device with much larger keys, these so called mini keys are useless.
I've been using it for writing music (sibelius) and it's all what you need when you are away from your studio and need to input notes quickly: extremely light to carry on, all right for all the rest (didn't even bother for checking how many velocity layer it could transmit, I don't think it would be great for very accurate sequencing).
