        Comments about Korg nanoKONTROL2 - Slim-Line USB MIDI Controller (White):

        It does work with Magix Samplitude Pro X as long as you have version 12.4 or later. All you have to do to get it to work is to set the control to MIDI in the Korg Control Editor, then open Samplitude (starting with ONLY 8 tracks to begin), next (if you have a Windows system) press "Y" to open up the System Options window. On your left hand side of that window should be "Hardware Controller". Click that. Now click "Add New", scroll down to "Factory Presets" and there should be a "Korg nanoKontrol" template already mapped out for you. You can Re-Map these if you'd like with the MIDI Learn functions in Samplitude (Video on YouTube by kraznet explaining how to do so). Works great after setup! Thanks BHPV for the quick shipping also! Good luck guys!

            Comments about Korg nanoKONTROL2 - Slim-Line USB MIDI Controller (White):

            nanoKONTROL2. I love it. I use it extensively with the iMS20 application to control volume and pan of up to 8 channels. You can also pick any channel out of the 8 to hear it solo, mute it, or record over. ITS LIKE A LITTLE MIXER :))) I hope Korg can make the volume knobs a bit heavier to give it a more realistic feel.

            Physically, the unit is solid and made of clean plastic and has a decent weight to it so it doesnt feel like a toy. There are quite a few keys on the right side for controlling your DAW software or music app (rewind, stop, play, record, cycle, skip tracks, and markers). All functions and keys are editable using the Korg editor software.
