Korg nanoPAD Pad Controller

Meet the most compact family of USB-MIDI controllers ever! Introducing the new Korg nanoSERIES USB powered slim-line controllers - so small you can put them on your workstation, in front of your laptop, on a recording console or anywhere else you need versatile control over your DAW, virtual instrument/effect or DJ software.

Small Pad Controller Big on Control

When Korg set out to make a drum pad controller, they did their homework - with unique features and exceptionally responsive pads, the resulting padKONTROL became and remains one of the most highly sought-after pad controllers on the market. Enter the nanoPAD, offering 12 excellent feeling and highly responsive pads in a new, smaller footprint. In addition, a new Chord Trigger function lets you enter chords onto a single pad, helping you to make the most of the work surface as you create. The pads are also able to transmit control change messages, making this a great interface for soloing or muting mixer tracks, turning objects on and off, or triggering clips during your live performances.

nanoPAD's X-Y pad offers 'Roll' and 'Flam' modes, to help you lay down ultra-realistic drum grooves. The X-Y pad will also send MIDI CC (Control Change), making it a go-to interface for any parameter within your software that requires full range MIDI control such as pitch, cutoff, volume and beyond.

With the "KORG KONTROL Editor" (downloadable free of charge from the Korg website) you can customize four scenes that address the pads and X-Y pad can be stored within nanoPAD to suit your control needs. That means you actually have access to 48 notes/chords, 60 MIDI controllers, or any combination of the two types of data at any given time. Also, select one of three velocity curves or a fixed velocity to tailor the nanoPAD to your touch.

nanoSERIES

Despite their small size, all three controllers go HUGE when it comes to functionality, yet their intuitive layouts provide extremely easy operation for any user. The nanoKEY features a great-feeling 25-key velocity-sensitive keyboard that's ideal for song production. The keys can also be set to send MIDI control data, further expanding its power. The nanoPAD features 12 highly responsive trigger pads, also capable of sending both notes and MIDI control data, plus an X-Y pad with roll and flam functions giving you a unique interface for realistic drum programming. The nanoKONTROL offers nine faders, nine knobs and 18 switches plus a full transport section for expansive control; plus it features a note input mode to help you lay down your next big groove!

What's a Controller Without Software

Even if the Korg nanoSERIES controllers are your first foray into MIDI control, you can rest assured that you'll be able to get connected to software quickly. As an added value, the nanoKEY includes a download code for the full version of Korg's M1Le, which faithfully recreates the legendary Korg M1 workstation. Plus, an upgrade path will let you graduate to the Legacy DIGITAL EDITION software suite, which has an even more expansive version of the M1, the renowned WaveStation and 19 great MDEX effects. The nanoPAD comes complete with a download code for Toontrack's EZDrummer Lite, offering super-realistic, highly responsive drums in a convenient plug in, plus you can upgrade to the full version of EZDrummer for a special price. The nanoKONTROL includes a discount coupon for Ableton Live LE software. What's more; a free downloadable Editor/Librarian will help you create setups to suit your specific control needs in all three models.

Customer Reviews
3.5 out of 5 (19 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great product, really brings the sounds you want to life."
Sound: it doesnt make sound, it has velocity pads tho. Feature: I wish the roll could be a little bit better but it gets the job done. Like if u roll your hi hats , it can be a lil off beat. It really isnt a big problem though because u can just hit the pads fast enough to get the sounds u want. i Really like the flam feature. It makes it easy to stack kicks and snares. The x-y axis pad thingy is very useful. Ease of Use: You just plug it in and bam!. that easy. Quality: I had to give it an 8 because the main pads that i beat up feels a little weird. I had this for a few days, i dont maybe i'm abusing my pads or this they are not as strong as they should be. And if you like to beat up pads like me then i suggest that u get something to keep your nano pad stable because the rubber dots on the bottom doesn't keep it in place that well. It wont mess up ypur flow though, just giving a heads to. Everything else is built pretty well. Value: I would have to say it's worth buying. 60 bucks for a control like this is wheres its at. Its worth way more then what they are selling it for. Manufacturer Support: N/A The Wow Factor: I don't really care about the looks but this little hardware doesn't hurt the eye. It looks like it can do work. The design reminds me of apple products. It matches my mac book. But the looks doesn't matter. Overall: Overall this is a great product. It gets the job done for drumming to sampling. It really helps me find the sound i want from chopped up samples. If you are into sampling, making drum sounds and on a tight budget; then you should pick this up.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "If only this product worked..."
Sound: It's a pad controller/trigger so it doesn't have it's own sounds. Feature: One of the coolest features of this product is the xy controller. I would prefer to use it instead of multiple knobs, not that I have anything against knobs. It's potentially a great product if it worked. From what I've read about it, hardly anyone seems to have a working unit- mines didn't either....only two pads and the xy controller. I'm pretty sure this is a ridiculous quality control issue with Korg. You have to test your product before you sell it. Either that or something very bad happens when they ship these things. Ease of Use: I really believe that this is "potentially" a user friendly product. I would love to use a working unit. There's probably a lot different possibilities with it. Quality: Felt sturdy. Don't think I was going to break it anytime soon. Value: Seems to be a great product for the price. I would think that it would be a game changer for some of the home studio producers and on the fly producers considering your soundbank is at least mediocre. Manufacturer Support: Never used it....Then again I didn't use the product either. The Wow Factor: I wanted it so much that I went and got it!!! Now I just want it to work so bad that I went and got a similar product...Akai lpd8. I purchased it from the Guitar Center based off of another review. I asked a guy who worked there about the nonopad and he literally gave me a one-word review on it- and not a good one. They had so many of them returned.
