Korg NANOKEYST overview

  • 1Description

The nanoKEY Studio from Korg is a lightweight and portable mini keyboard controller with twenty-five keys, knobs, trigger pads, and a touch pad that allows instant realization of ideas into sound. Battery operated or USB bus powered, the controller can connect wirelessly to an iPhone or iPad, or additionally via USB to a Mac or Windows computer.

The velocity-sensitive keys allow for easy step-recording and the Scale Guide function illuminates the keys to show recommended notes in the scale, making it even easier to play. An Easy Scale function generates musical phrases using any of the keys. The eight velocity-sensitive trigger pads can convey every dynamic nuance of a drum performance. In chord-playing mode, the Chord Scale function automatically assigns the best chords for the key and scale selected. The pads can also be assigned to trigger audio clips.

Single finger control of synthesizers or plug-in effects is available using the built-in KAOSS-inspired touch pad. The controller also features an arpeggiator with rhythm patterns, for generating a succession of new phrases simply by touching the pad. Similarly, eight knobs provide control of software synthesizers, plug-in effects, or a DAW mixer. A comprehensive selection of music software is available for all supported platforms.

    Korg NANOKEYST reviews

    nanoKEY Studio - Mobile MIDI Keyboard is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid device, with some quirks I'm using this primarily with the Korg Gadget iOS app, which works great. However, here are a few things worth knowing ahead of purchase or setup. You have to pair the keyboard and the iPad via the Korg app, not the standard Bluetooth settings. Not a big deal, but it wasn't as simple as I'd expected. Once it's paired, though, the pads feel good, the knobs have a nice smooth friction to their rotation and don't feel loose at all...unlike the keys. The keys are each separate plastic oblong shapes, in reverse coloration to piano keys. They feel a little wiggly, which overall cheapens the feel, but there's an upside here. The space around the keys lights up when you select a scale within the Korg Gadget software and highlights the notes in the scale. I think that's super-cool and very handy for playing with unfamiliar scales. For a device that is intended to go in a small backpack and travel with me, it's going to work great. That said, I want to buy a case that protects the knobs during transit because they stick out enough that I don't want to simply toss it in a bag with a bunch of other things.
