OVERVIEW

A slimline, USB-powered, pad-style MIDI controller with a simple black design.

This black version of the nanoPAD is part of Korg's nanoSERIES USB-powered slimline MIDI controllers, so small you can put them on your workstation, in front of your laptop, on a recording console, or anywhere else you need versatile control over your DAW, virtual instrument, effect, or DJ software.

Despite its small size, this MIDI controller goes big when it comes to functionality. Its intuitive layout provides extremely easy operation for any user. The Korg nanoPAD features 12 highly responsive trigger pads capable of sending both notes and MIDI control data, plus an X-Y pad with roll and flam functions to give you a unique interface for realistic drum programming.

Even if the Korg nanoPAD MIDI controller is your first foray into MIDI control, you can rest assured that you'll be able to get connected to software quickly. The Korg nanoPAD comes complete with a download code for Toontrack's EZDrummer Lite, offering super-realistic, highly responsive drums in a convenient plug-in, plus you can upgrade to the full version of EZDrummer for a special price. You also get a free downloadable Editor/Librarian to help you create setups to suit your specific control needs.

For the price of sixty bucks, you can't go wrong with this MIDI controller. Solidly built and very customizable (with the download able Korg Kontrol Editor), this space-saving controller isn't as fully-featured as its bigger and more expensive cousins but if you're looking to just get your percussion ideas down, it can't be beat.(DJs can also use this to trigger samples/songs as well.)I suggest anyone considering this product to download the Korg Kontrol Editor and the USB MIDI driver from Korg's site (which are free). Both will immensely help with your music-making as the driver will let you open the Kontrol Editor while keeping your sequencer/DAWs of choice running for complete customization and control.

The Kontrol Editor software to set this up is a mite clunky, but otherwise this unit seemed pretty good when it arrived. Nice rubber pads, cool X-Y interface, felt pretty solid. Regrettably, after not using it for several months, I fired it up and... all the drum pads were mysteriously dead. I thought initially it was a driver or software issue? there was no physical wear on the nanoPad, which hadn?t left my studio desk; but after some troubleshooting with a MIDI monitoring program, I found it wasn?t so. The X-Y pad and the other buttons were fine. KORG sent me a replacement, upon which only three of the pads functioned properly. The others either sent inconsistent MIDI messages or didn't function at all. Oddly, the X-Y pad and other controls were also fine on the replacement. Now waiting on my second replacement. It's a shame... it's a great idea for a piece of gear, but there's a quality control issue somewhere. On a brighter note, my nanoKontrol unit has always worked perfectly.

Get what you pay for.

By WestChilo-CGYzH

from Carson, CA

i was rather excited when it arrived, but after a few moment of use, the 12th pad activated on its own. i became adaptive to it until i bought the akai mpd26. i might just sell or give this thing away.

Broke after a year of light use

By Mike H

from Woodbridge, VA

I bought this used off of a friend who had it for a year, and he treats his equipment very well. It broke a month later - the pads became unresponsive and only the xy control worked. If it weren't for the poor construction it would be great.

Great idea, but horrible build quality

By Keeze88

from Tujunga, California

The nanoPAD worked fine for a few months, although the velocity response is rather poor regardless of which curve is selected in the included computer editor. The X/Y pad is great for not only drum rolls and flams but for independent joystick-like control of synthesizers. However, one day the upper row of pads stopped working, even though it's in a very clean environment and hadn't been moved or even used much. If you buy this, realize that it probably won't hold up long!

It was nice... when it worked.

By jeffer

from California

I bought this thing because it was pretty cheap and I just wanted to mess around and make beats on my computer. Used it a couple of times, put it away on my shelf for a few months, pulled it out 3 months later to play with it again only to realize that somehow the USB port had fallen inside. This is a common problem. Google it. I emailed Korg, and they sent me a new one. I was happy that they were so cooperative... until I realized after I plugged my replacement one into the computer that the pads on the top row do not work, only the bottom row worked. Great. They sent me a broken one. I didn't bother emailing them a second time, because I'd probably just get another broken one. DO NOT BUY THIS. At least it wasn't TOO big of an investment, but I'm still annoyed.

Don't Waste Your Money

By thecan24

from Scranton, PA

I had a few extra bucks laying around n decided I wanted a cheap drum controller. I bought it, hooked it up to my computer, and one of the pads was permanently on. I was gonna suck it up n see if it would start working, but no. I returned it and they gave me a new one. This one worked... for a few weeks. Its been a few months now and I might as well throw it out. Like 3 of the pads work if that, and I'm out. I mean if you do buy one and it works for you, its a handy little tool, fits right in front of a 13'' macbook, has a few features involving the xy pad, and is extremely portable. But me, I would recommend saving your money and getting one that isn't as big of a piece of garbage. (You'd think because its Korg it'd be great)

my nano pad sucks!

By iLL-T

from Phoenix, Arizona

well idk about yours, i know u probably want one because its cheap, but i would have been better off just sticking with my midi keyboard, because the 1st few pads, don't respond well at all, and theirs allot of sensitivity issues with most the pads. i tried taking it apart and cleening the sensors, but it didnt seem to help, its got poor build...when u hit the pads, the plastic chasi vibrates....they pads feal okay as far as the rubber goes, but they do not, and will not compare to a higher grade Akai controller....u are so much better off getting something from akai, so look into that 1st :)

great value!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

got it a few months ago, latency not a problem as long as you've got enough processing power, and an asio driver. (i'm using AMD Turion 1.8 with 1GB of ram) pads are great, very responsive to different levels. touchpad requires a little more pressure. overall has a good solid feel. only gripe is the included ezdrummer is only the lite version but seeing as to how cheap this is, its not a big deal

Underwhelmed

By Hornblas

from Chicago, IL.

Very inconsistent MIDI transmissions. It transmits data so sporadically as to make it unusable. Will be sending it back for a refund.
