Excerpt: At the lowest price I could find for a controller keyboard, the Korg nanoKey2 is very impressive. It only has twenty-five keys, but the octave shift buttons allow you to change the octave up and down, giving reach to the full range of notes for electronic music. It has neat pitch bend, sustain, and vibrato buttons, too. It resembles a computer keyboard in the flatness and shape of the keys and is even smaller than a computer keyboard.
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
Excerpt: This is my first Korg product. I got Korg's all 3 white Slim-Line USB MIDI Controllers. It all started with iMS20 app. I needed small sized midi controllers. Korg's Slim-Line was the perfect choice. Lets describe the product: The nanoKEY2: its very light to carry around, and easily fits in any bag. Great when travelling. The unit and the keys are made out of plastic and have a clean solid feel.
Summary: Pros *Small *durable *lightweight *SUPER FAST ACTION (I put in some fast double bass notes and it responded great!) *lights on octave keys a big plus *sustain is awesome *Great for inputting notes into Sibelius, especially with Virtual Drumline *Great for putting simple ideas into a DAW *Velocity Sensitive aspet of the keys works very well *Plug n Play (I'm on Mac OS X) Cons *Keys are like laptop keys so you won't be doing super fast keyboard runs on this thing without...
Excerpt: Great for what it is: an extremely portable music controller, not a replacement for a full-size keyboard controller but an augmenting controller for portable use. I take it with me everywhere, so I can drop tracks into my iPad easily.
Pros: Compact, Good velocity control, Small and lightweight
Summary: Does what it says on the tin, and the free bundled software were a really nice surprise. I wouldn't use it as my only midi controller as size makes playing anything more than a single line melody difficult, however it is ultra-portable, which was sort-of Korg's main design idea, so job well done.
Summary: Brilliant product. Perfect size for carrying around in a bag and works perfectly as a USB input. Only downside to this product is the 'feel of the keys.' Doesn't feel like a real midikeyboard or piano though you'd expect that because of the size.
