NanoKey2 Slim-Line USB Control Surface

Each of Korg's NanoSeries2 ultra-compact and low-profile USB-MIDI controllers fit perfectly in front of your laptop computer or desktop keyboard, offering impressive control while conserving valuable set-up space. Simply connect a single USB cable, and you've got a music production studio on your desk at home or on the go. The NanoKey2 is equipped with 25 velocity-sensing keys and an advanced design for reliable recording.

Accurate, Responsive, and Great-Feeling Keyboard

The NanoKey2 features an advanced and up-to-date design. By combining the great-feeling "touch" that Korg has developed for its professional MIDI keyboards and the low-profile "thinness" of recent computer keyboard innovations, the NanoKey2 provides a superior keyboard response for its class and size. It's designed with ample key width and plenty of space between the keys, reducing the chances of a wrong note. The touch and velocity response have been carefully tuned, as only a manufacturer with Korg's track record and know-how can, ensuring that your expressive performance will be conveyed accurately to your software.

Control Buttons Provide Simple, Versatile Control

The Octave Shift buttons--borrowed from Korg's MIDI controllers--allow the overall pitch to be shifted four levels, either UP or DOWN, in octave increments. For enhanced performances, the NanoKey2 also provides Pitch Bend buttons, a Modulation button, and a Sustain button--one that's indispensable for piano or electric piano performance. For each of these buttons, the on/off switching speed can be specified over four levels (using the Korg Kontrol Editor), ensuring the smooth changes that are appropriate for your performance.

Korg Kontrol Editor Software

The NanoKey2 works with the "Korg Kontrol Editor" software--available free on the Korg website. Load it into your computer, and use it to make detailed customized settings. Choose from a total of four velocity settings: three velocity curves or fixed velocity; specify the control change messages transmitted by the modulation button and the sustain button.

USB Power for an Uncluttered Setup

Just connect a single USB cable from your computer to the NanoKey2, and you've got a quick and portable music production system. Power and USB-MIDI data travels down the same wire for a clean, efficient workspace.

Great little keyboard controller, works great with garage band or pro tools.

When depressing these keys it's really hard to tell if my placement is spot on or if I'm going to hit multiple keys with my fingers.

It was very soft and spongy with almost no feedback to feel when the key had engaged.

What a great little input device!! I think real keyboard players might hate this simply because it is not really a traditional design and doesn't feel much like a normal keyboard. However, a guitar player like me that wanted a small keyboard to do step editing in a sequencer will LOVE it! It's much smaller than I expected. I know the Amazon ad has dimensions, but they didn't register with me until I saw it in person. It's probably an inch more narrow than my 15" MacBook and a few mm less tall!! It takes up very little space on my desk and does just what I needed it to.

The overall feel is very much like a computer keyboard, so it doesn't have the long stroke of a typical music keyboard. That doesn't bother me any, but you should consider it. I'd say the build quality is probably the same also. It just feels like a computer keyboard to me. I've seen a few reviews for these that say the velocity sensitivity is on the weak side. I'd say that's fair. I don't know how nuanced a performance I could get from this. I was playing moderately hard and getting velocities in the 95 - 110 range though, so I'd say it's not fair to say it's inaccurate. I think it's fine. Don't know about reliability yet. It's pretty new. If it breaks, I'll update the review!

I love this thing. It's teeny, sturdy, and I can take it anywhere in a briefcase, backpack, or even a Trapper Keeper!
My only issue with it is that it has no on-board transpose feature, but that would be a perk and not a necessity.

Overall, great purchase, and highly recommended!

I bought this to use when I occasionally need to record midi tracks in Ableton Live and need dynamic velocity sensitivity. I find it difficult to use my PC keyboard as it's hard to tell where the sharps/flats are and I always end up hitting keys programmed for other functions. I've used a 49 key semi-weighted midi controller previously but sold it a few years back as it was too big for what I needed yet not big enough to play/practice songs utilizing a full piano on (it was an Axiom 49, if you're curious; great sensitivity and feel but either too small or too large as I said).

The pros:
* Cheap! only $50 ($45 for the white version when I bought it) and with 2 day Amazon Prime shipping

* 2 full octaves, a pc keyboard only supports about half of that without changing octave, which is really annoying.

* Light and portable, with lit octave buttons and sustain/pitch bend. The dynamic lit buttons were my favorite part about this keyboard. If I were to buy another less-than-full-size midi controller, I'd make sure it has that feature. If I did a lot of traveling/composing on the run or at a Starbucks (I've seen it done), I'd keep this in my backpack just for portability.

* Incredibly easy to setup - downloaded the driver, plugged it in, fired up Ableton and it worked immediately without needing any modifications.

The cons:
* The keys feel "mushy", and not in a good way. It's hard to tell when they're going to trigger, sometimes when I'd try to tremolo I wasn't able to get a hit every time. Hits would jump around and be generally unreliable. I ended up just manually programming the notes. It could be that I have terrible form, to be honest, but I've never had this problem with any other keyboard.

Lightweight, small but still functional! I thought the size would limit me from What I could do with a last scale keyboard but it's almost the exact same, just a little more stylish.

The Korg Nano key is a great device for composing or tweaking on the road. I especially liked that it was velocity and pressure sensitive. It even came with a few bonus keyboard sound apps (the M1 collection is particularly fun).

It works "as advertised." I'd recommend it to anyone who uses a laptop for music composition or recording.

its good for portability. it looks cool. but if you're really into productivity and efficiency and like the traditional keyboard keys, i wouldn't recommend. keys are too small and the feel of pressing down on those isn't something i crave. i would buy something else.

Item was as described. Shipping was fast. The keyboard is even smaller than I imaged it. Highly recommended for anyone who needs to produce music in small spaces.
