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 on the NanoKEY2 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 yet 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 keyboard controller 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 USB controller 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 keyboard controller, 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.
