Great Kontrol. Unbeatable Price!!!
Consider me bias, in that, I have never been dissappionted in any Korg products that I've purchased. Not that i haven't drueled over many attractive midi controllers from Novation and Akia, which deliver a superb product as well, but i just needed some extra controls and really wanted something that was out of my price range, for now... So as cheap as the cost is for this controller, its made a great hold me over 'til I can get what my heart truely desires. I have been very pleased and will still continue to use with live performances because its compact design gives plenty of choices, when room is limited. KORG IS BASICALLY GIVING THEM AWAY AT THAT PRICE, WHY WOULDN'T YOU WANT TO GET IT? IF NOTHING ELSE, YOU COULD HAVE IT AS A BACK-UP CONTROLLER FOR WHEN YOU JUST NEED A COUPLE EXTRA HANDS ON CONTROLS. I use: hp -Envy, intel i7, 8GB RAM, windows 7, FL Studio(My Favorite Software Ever!!!), & every thing works great!! I mapped controller using downloadable "Korg Kontrol Editor" in no time. I have a Korg microKontrol & Korg Pad Kontrol, so mapping was more or less a exstention to current midi mapping set-up (to expand my microKontrols' 8 Faders,just always need more it seems like).Also includes a software pack, i already owned a lot of the stuff on it, but still makes a great added bonus. If you added up the cost of included software titles, it would probably be enough money to buy 2 nanoKontrol2's. Like I said, its pretty much a no brainer. I'd give it a 5 star rating if I could string multiple NanoKontrol2's together, like the option on nanoKEYS2.
