Complete control for your DAW or software synthesizer:
A knob, fader, and three switches are provided for each of the eight channels, respectively assigned to pan, volume, and solo/mute/record. This arrangement is a real convenience when recording automation for multiple channels. There's also a marker button, making it easy to assign marks at important points in your song for more efficient recording and song production. When using a software synthesizer, you can assign parameters to the desired controllers for easy control. For example, you could use the faders to control the ADSR of an envelope generator, and use the knobs to control the filter's cut-off frequency and resonance, etc.
USB power for an uncluttered setup:
Just connect a single USB cable from your computer to the nanoKONTROL2, and you've got a quick and portable music production system. Power and USB-MIDI data travels down the same wire for a clean, efficient workspace.
Notes: The Korg NanoPad USB powered slim-line controller is so small you can put it 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.The Korg NanoPad, despite its small size, goes huge when it comes to functionality, yet its intuitive layout provide extremely easy operation for any user.
The NanoPad features 16 highly responsive trigger pads, also capable of sending both notes and MIDI control data, plus an X-Y pad with roll and flam functions giving you a unique interface for realistic drum programming. In addition, a new chord trigger function lets you enter chords onto a single pad, helping you to make the most of the work surface as you create. The pads are also able to transmit control change messages, making this a great interface for soloing or muting mixer tracks, turning objects on and off, or triggering clips during your live performances.
Korg NanoPad's X-Y pad offers roll and flam modes, to help you lay down ultra-realistic drum grooves. The X-Y pad will also send MIDI control change, making it a go-to interface for any parameter within your software that requires full range MIDI control such as pitch, cutoff, volume and beyond.
With the Korg Kontrol editor (downloadable free of charge from the Korg website) you can customize four scenes that address the pads and X-Y pad can be stored within NanoPad to suit your control needs. That means you actually have access to 48 notes/chords, 60 MIDI controllers, or any combination of the two types of data at any given time. Also, select one of three velocity curves or a fixed velocity to tailor the NanoPad to your touch.
Slim-line USB pad controller - blue & yellow edition
Notes: Like all nanoSERIES2 controllers, the nanoPAD2 had to be compact, lightweight and sized to work well with any laptop or desktop computer. In addition, the nanoPAD2 also had to pack in 16 great-feeling and dynamic-sensing pads - as well as leaving room for the X-Y touchpad! The Korg nanoPAD2 does all this and more. In fact, there are four banks of pad assignments, providing a total of 64 pads setups.
Dynamic trigger pads capture all your performance nuances:
The sixteen velocity-sensitive pads provide excellent response to your fingertips, and also realistically convey the playing feel to your sequencer or DAW software, ensuring that your drum parts will be full of life. By switching between the four scenes, you can experience 64 different pad assignments.
