The nanoKEY2 features an advanced and up-to-date design. By combining the great-feeling "touch" that Korg has developed for its professional MIDI keyboards and the low-profile "thinness" of recent computer keyboard innovations, the nanoKEY2 provides a superior keyboard response for its class and size. It's designed with ample key width and plenty of space between the keys, reducing the chances of a wrong note. The touch and velocity response have been carefully tuned, as only a manufacturer with Korg's track record and know-how can, ensuring that your expressive performance will be conveyed accurately to your software.
Control buttons provide simple yet versatile control
The Octave Shift buttons - borrowed from Korg's MIDI controllers - allow the overall pitch to be shifted four levels, either UP or DOWN, in octave increments. For enhanced performances, the nanoKEY2 also provides Pitch Bend buttons, a Modulation button, and a Sustain button - one that's indispensible for piano or electric piano performance. For each of these buttons, the on/off switching speed can be specified over four levels (using the Korg Kontrol Editor), ensuring the smooth changes that are appropriate for your performance.
Korg Kontrol Editor software
The nanoKEY2 works with the "Korg Kontrol Editor" software - available free on the Korg website. Load it into your computer, and use it to make detailed customized settings. Choose from a total of four velocity settings: three velocity curves or fixed velocity; specify the control change messages transmitted by the modulation button and the sustain button.
USB power for an uncluttered setup
Just connect a single USB cable from your computer to the nanoKEY2, 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.

Comments about Korg NANOKEY2 USB Keyboard Controller:
I have had other iOS keyboards. The Akai had a 30 pin connector and would not work with an adapter and required you to take the phone out of the case to use it. My M audio drew too much power and did not run on batteries so I had to plug it in anytime I wanted to use it with my iOS devices. This thing is the most portable device I've ever been able to play real music on! It does not take much to get used to the keys. They are bigger than you think and feel like typing on a computer keyboard. I thought they would be rubber. It's got sustain, Pitch Bend, modulation, and octave keys easily accessible on the front and a simple little light to let you know that it's powered on. Now I can be creative wherever I am! Totally and utterly worth the money!
I wanted to be sure nothing happened to it so I built a carrying case out of an old flute case. I just had to remove the tray that fits the flute pieces and replace it with some foam. It even fits the cable and the camera kit adapter.
