Instant Control in Studio One

I just needed a simple transport,fader,pan knob controller for my mobile rig running Studio One 3. I was using a Korg Taktile in double duty, control surface AND instrument mode, while pondering the best small controller to purchase. There are several quality units to choose from in the same price-range. Very pleased I chose this one. Perfect for my needs,when mobile, or at home base. The nanoKONTROL2 is already mapped and ready to go in Studio One, and took less than 10 minutes to set up. The unit itself is well made and has a solid feel, definitely worth the price it goes for.So good to buy something that works 100%; no glitches or fits setting it up to use. Thanks, Korg and Sweetwater.


I use Korg NanoKONTROL2 to control Mainstage layers, playback and effects. The knobs and sliders are interchangeable and have always worked flawlessly. The slider knobs have fallen off from time to time when I transported it, so you have to be aware when transferring it around. But its not a big deal. Easy to program, dependable and affordable. Easily handles all my live synths, ableton and more.... and for $50 bucks! Save your $$ for the software and the synth hardware.....you won't be disappointed in this.

Plug & Play!

I was tired of using my mouse SO MUCH to control all of the parameters for setting levels, pans, play, pause, solo, mute etc. And I REALLY missed the feel of old-school faders while running my DAW (Logic 9)...especially during a MIX. Plugged this puppy in and POOF! It worked flawlessly in an instant! All of the buttons, sliders, and knobs feel nice and smooth as well. A GREAT little addition to the home studio!

Just what I expected

Set up fairly quickly with Live and Tracktion 3 for levels and panning, great to mix with ears and not eyes

Great little MIDI controller !

I absolutely love nanoKONTROL 2. I was looking for something small, portable, but still very functional. My goal was to control CC# messages of virtual instruments within DAW with faders, buttons and knobs. Control all parameters, including B-3 organ bars. The amount of data that you have at your fingertips to control with nano is just what you really need. The faders and knobs feel sturdy, and durable. All parameters are assigned easily within the computer ( connected via included USB cable). You can easily assign any parameter to any button, knob or fader and save your customized settings. If you are looking for a USB MIDI controller that can serve both in the studio and on the road - Korg nanoKONTROL 2 is clearly the perfect choice.
