Product Description

Color: Black | Style: Slim-Line USB Drum Pad Controller

Like all nanoSERIES2 controllers, the nanoPAD2 had to be compact, lightweight and sized to work well with any laptop or desktop computer. In addition, the nanoPAD2 also had to pack in 16 great-feeling and dynamic-sensing pads – as well as leaving room for the X-Y touchpad! The Korg nanoPAD2 does all this and more. In fact, there are four banks of pad assignments, providing a total of 64 pad assignments. The sixteen velocity-sensitive pads provide excellent response to your fingertips, and also realistically convey the playing feel to your sequencer or DAW software, ensuring that your drum parts will be full of life. By switching between the four scenes, you can experience 64 different pad assignments. The X-Y pad can be used to control multiple synthesizer parameters. In addition, the new "Touch Scale” function lets you intuitively play phrases on the X-Y touchpad, just as on the Kaossilator. You can choose from sixteen different scales, and specify the root key and note range to ensure that your performance stays within your song. The "Gate Arp” function, borrowed from the Kaossilator Pro, transmits note data based on tempo; Tap tempo and tempo sync are supported. Combined with the Touch Scale, the Gate Arp allows you to play tempo-synchronized phrases and rhythms simply by stroking the X-Y pad or playing the pads. The nanoPAD2 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. You can also specify note numbers, create user scales for the Touch Scale function, assign chords, assign control change messages, and save your settings. Just connect a single USB cable from your computer to the nanoPAD2, 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.

Style Name: Slim-Line USB Drum Pad ControllerColor: Black Verified Purchase
I recently purchased this Nanopad for a live setup, making it my third - I own a Nano1 (black), Nano2 (white) and now this Nano2 (black).

First off for the price I think these controllers are quite decent. I know some users report hardware reliability issues, but I haven't run into any problems (yet) with my 3 units. Heck, they are half the price and probably last longer than my "consumable" Macbook battery on which I spend $100 every two years!

Some comparison between the 3 units - out of the box, the Nano1 appears to be slightly more sensitive than the Nano2 (see below for an easy mod you can do to bring up pad sensitivity). Nano1 pads ARE slightly larger.. but you get less of them. Another difference is the pads used in the white and black versions - the black ones feel softer and less sticky, while the white ones slightly more sticky and platic-y, for lack of a better word... I prefer the feel of the black pads myself.

I think these are all fine products and serve their purpose. If you need a higher performing product, then you're in the wrong price bracket!

Now for a simple mod that you can do to increase the sensitivity on the Nano2:
1) Open up the unit (unplugged) with a small screwrdriver
2) lift away the pc board and contact sheet
3) place a few pieces of scotch tape on the bottom of each rubber pad. Small squares to cover the inside [] ridge of each pad. 8-10 pieces per pad will make them nice and sensitive! (you can also stack the scotch pieces in a longer strip first, then cut them down to size for increased efficiency.:)
4) Close up the unit

I recieved this in the mail 2 days ago, and i must say i am totally impressed with this unit. I programmed Reaper 3.76 using it's Midi CC message mode, and it took time using the action option in Reaper to manually program the NanoKontrol 2, to use it as the transport and mixer functions of the daw. Once i set it up (i got it programmed to 24 faders and pan knobs, plus all solo/mute/record arm buttons and the full transport as well using 3 out of 16 availiable midi channels! But if you like you can max it out at 8 tracks per midi channel, up to 16 midi channels giving you a max of 128 channels/tracks!) it worked smooth as butter. The pan knobs feel really good and not cheap, the faders have a nice feel of resistance to them like mixing boards do. The buttons light up when they are armed to toggle, i am very impressed with the quality of this unit.

The pros to this unit is that it is definitely a step up in the construction and build quality of this unit compared to the version 1 of the NanoKontrol. The added transport functions are great , all the solo/mute/record arm buttons, as well as the transport buttons don't feel cheap at all, and feel solid which is a big surprise granted the cost of this unit (59.99 as of 7/3/2011). It has a decent weight to it, around 3/4 of a pound. It looks cool too during use in a session. The controls are very responsive with Reaper 3.76. I use this controller with it's Midi CC Message mode.

Style Name: Slim-Line USB KeyboardColor: Black
Pros
*Small
*durable
*lightweight
*SUPER FAST ACTION (I put in some fast double bass notes and it responded great!)
*lights on octave keys a big plus
*sustain is awesome
*Great for inputting notes into Sibelius, especially with Virtual Drumline
*Great for putting simple ideas into a DAW
*Velocity Sensitive aspet of the keys works very well
*Plug n Play (I'm on Mac OS X)

Cons
*Keys are like laptop keys so you won't be doing super fast keyboard runs on this thing without some awkwardness. The Akai keyboards are a little better for that (but they are super springy) But then again, why would you do super fast runs on a 2 octave travel keyboard?

Overall: This thing is great for note input into Finale/Sibelius and REALLY great for putting in drum beats into your daw. In fact, I like it better than the nanopad. It will capture simple melodic ideas for sequencer use, but don't expect to be ripping out your scales on this thing. Overall it's great for what I bought it for, virtual drumline :)

I've had the Korg nanoPAD2 USB MIDI Pad input for less that 24 hours, but, I must say, "Plenty of BANG for my buck."

PROS:
+Highly responsive and pressure sensitive pads.
+Works with just about ANY MIDI software on the market. I use Magix MX (also purchased on Amazon) and it runs smooth.
+Pitch & tone sensor (grey square to the left) helps bend notes with ease.
+Pads instantly map to the virtual keys of whatever MIDI software you are using.
+Works with Windows (XP/Vista/7/8) and Mac.
+Reasonably priced. Mine cost under $50 AFTER shipping.

CONS:
-This is NOT a keyboard. It comes with no sounds of its own and is dependent on your MIDI software. Fortunately, there is plenty of CHEAP MIDI software floating around the internet.
-Must set your software to "AISO" to avoid a split-second delay in sound. However, this is done with ease via the software itself.
-Vista, 7, and 8 users may need to install drivers for nanoPAD2. However, this is done easily and free of charge at Korg's own website.
