Good Things Come In Small Packages!!
by Greg Mario from Corsicana (near Dallas), TexasI purchased a Presonus AudioBox USB interface with an included Studio One DAW. A day later I bought a NanoKontrol to use it as a control surface for my Studio One. At first, I thought this little piec... read more [+]e of gear is perhaps nothing more than just a little piece of toy. How wrong I was! This so-called little toy turns out to be a jaw-dropping piece of gear which works flawlessly with my Studio One!! The minute I plugged it into my laptop USB port, it auto-mapped itself to all the virtual faders on my Studio One!! KORG has done it once again!! I can now leave my Tascam Audio Interface/Controller at home and pack this lil amazing NanoKontrol thang inside my laptop case, as it fits just right, along with my laptop, my NanoKey, and my Presonus AudioBox interface and go make record some music at the lakeside as I fire up my grill and bar-be-que some steaks!! If you love super portability with super performance, you will literfally fall in love with the NanoKontrol!! It's a super hot thang in a tiny lil package! close [-]

Awesome budget controller
by Adam Kirby from Chicago, ILLet's face it, using the mouse to turn virtual knobs and push virtual buttons is a total drag. There's something about tactile interaction that can't be beat. The NanoKontrol is great value for the ... read more [+]money, covering all the essential controls - 9 knobs, 9 sliders, 18 buttons, and a transport section. The CCs for each are easily reprogrammed using the free Korg editor available online. You can program the buttons to trigger commonly used events in your DAW of choice. Saves thousands of mouse clicks in the long run! The knobs and sliders can control virtual synths or organ drawbars. All in all, the best friend for a budget conscious computer musician who needs control. close [-]

Korg nanoKONTROL rocks!
by Mose Leslie from Sacramento, CAI've wanted something like this for 20 years now. First, the laptop software allows me to build a set where I can actually sustain an instrument while I select the next fully configured instrument I n... read more [+]eed. Now, the nanoKontrol allows me to seize control of all those beautifully modeled Hammond, guitar, and clavinet voices in real time while I play. I just bring the laptop and the nanoKontrol, and plug into the midi of whatever keyboard is available, and DRIVE! (And I haven't even tried using the nano for mixing yet.)

Versatile, programable Kontrol..

For the money, the nanoKontrol CANNOT be beat!! close [-]
The Korg nano series of controllers offer a scalable and versatile soultion for studios and the traveling musician. Lightweight and lean, these controllers take up very little real estate on your desktop or at a live show, maximizing the little space you may need to work with.
