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.

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.

Product Features

  • Low-profile, 25-key USB-MIDI keyboard, ideal for use with laptop and netbook computers

Great Portable Keypad I went to the local Guitar Center and tried out every small keyboard they had in the store. They had quite a few. The problem I found with the majority of the small keyboards, beside the fact that most aren’t actually very small, is that the keys have to be hit too hard before they register, making consistent dynamics difficult to achieve.Nearly all of the keyboards I tried have WAY too much resistance in the keys. None of them are weighted keys but they seem to be trying to…

Good fit I originally bought this keyboard to use with Finale 2011 for my Orchestration class. Though it suited its purpose well in that regard, I’ve found that it is actually more useful applications such as GarageBand. Much easier to make beats, play correct rhythms, and play quietly. This keyboard is probably the smallest electronic usb powered “pianoforte” (meaning it is sensitive to the strength and speed at which it is played) on the market.It is very packable. I wish it came…
