The size of this keyboard is fantastic if you need to travel alot. But I found the velocity settings to be quite annoying, even settings it to its lowest setting you have to press too hard to produce a decent sound. With velocity settings off it works ok.
A small and highly portable DAW controller which can operate transport functions and faders / record - mute - solo buttons. Quite useful to help recordings.
There is, however, one serious issue when used in Logic Pro X. I installed the suggested plugin for the Korg USB driver and the NanoKontroler 2 plug-in. The controller only worked on initial installation and failed to work on every subsequent time. I tried loading the Korg controller software and removing and reloading the Korg software but no joy. The workaround appears to be to delete the controller and toggle the automatic option - restart if required. I’m not sue if it is a Korg or Logic Pro issue.
My cable was hidden in a small compartment at the end of the box Open one end for the controller - the other for the cable. Took me a day to find it! I wonder if the users who have commented on the missing cable also missed it. I guess 50% of people find the cable and 50% the controller. Korg support didn't tell me to where to look for it - just told me contact the supplier. Ho hum!
I have given this a try but it's not as responsive as I would like. I have a nanoKey 2 as well which is very responsive. Apparently it's possible to set the scale and key on the nanoPad 2 but I don't know whether the info in the accompanying instructions is wrong because it doesn't seem to work. It is a usable midi controller, but the instructions are a bit lacking. I'm going to look for a You Tube video that shows me how to set the scale and key in case I'm doing it wrong.
Insanely portable and easy to install, however the keys feel cheap and wobble a lot. Decent as a ultra-portable midi controller, however for those looking for something more piano-like, the AKAI LPK25 is streets ahead.
Bought this to go with my synth, plugged in easy and was set up in no time. All seemed to be fine until using the pads, they took a lot of force to hit and even then it was 50-50 if it would register. Sent back and bought an akai instead.
I think the pad control is reasonable but I was disappointed by the lack of sensitivity on the pads. If you are looking for something for playing drum pads I recommend the Akai LPD8. It’s also a slightly lower in price
I guess the most important thing to know about this keyboard that it's nothing like piano keys. The keys are velocity-sensitive buttons (which is nice), but feel a bit flimsy. The bundled software is nice (Reason Limited, for example), and installation is very easy. It's a nice touch that the octave up/down track the current position visually by changing the color of the buttons' lights.
