Overview

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.

I'm very pleased with what I received with this little device. One would think that for 60 bucks it would be a pile of junk. Not so, actually. I find it more solid and quality feeling than the Akai MPD16 (which this pad set is replacing). The pads are soft, but can take a hit. The X-Y pad has a lot of possible uses, and the downloadable editor gives you VERY deep editing capabilities, including stuff you can't do to the padCONTROL. I use it primarily for drum tracks through Session Drummer (it comes with a serial for EZdrummer Lite, but I didn't like it). It's worth three times what I paid for it, easily.

I loved this in the store and was excited to get it home but just about to return this. I'm using with latest Mac OS X (Snowleopard) , and Garageband, downloaded the drivers and etc. It "works" but half the pads are responding intermittently, the downloaded software doesn't work at all on the OS I have. Updated the USB cable etc. I should have had an inkling when the USB connection on the 1st unit demo'ed at the store was flaky. So all in all, an evening wasted I think is more than enough, and I'll take it back. I'm not sure whether it's hardware/software /OS/cable whatever, but the total experience was not a good one, a pity...

Get what you pay for.

Comments about Korg nanoPAD MIDI Controller - Black:

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

Comments about Korg nanoPAD MIDI Controller - Black:

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

Comments about Korg nanoPAD MIDI Controller - Black:

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!

Worked fine, until it didn't...

By Bob Knight

from Saint Paul, MN

Comments about Korg nanoPAD MIDI Controller - Black:

Bought my nanoPAD last January and used it for about a month. Went through a dry spell, and then recently decided to try doing some MIDI programming. I found that when I tryed to use it again, the pads were unresponsive. Did all the driver stuff (I'm a techie), tried it on 2 machines at home and a non-PC Mac (a product similar to a computer) at my local GC, and it became obvious - somehow during the intervening months, the nano died. There is one silver lining to the story (hence the two stars) - the woman who took care of my issue at KORG USA was exceedingly helpful, and according to her, a replacement is on the way. Anybody want to buy a NIB nanoPAD?

Really Too Bad? Was Ready to Love This

By yamguitar

from Atlanta, GA

Comments about Korg nanoPAD MIDI Controller - Black:

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.

It was nice... when it worked.

By jeffer

Comments about Korg nanoPAD MIDI Controller - Black:

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.

Poor Service

By Anonymous

from NY

Comments about Korg nanoPAD MIDI Controller - Black:

While I still feel that this pad has potential, aside from apparent quality issues, Guitar Center sold me this as "New", not "Blemished", and was clearly used/broken. The drive to Guitar Center was 2h one way and to say that my experience was unpleasant would be an understatement. I'm going to have to drive all the way back, 4+hours, and exchange this for a working one (which they now only have white of in stock). If you buy this, OPEN IT in the store!

Don't Waste Your Money

By thecan24

from Scranton, PA

Comments about Korg nanoPAD MIDI Controller - Black:

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)

Excellent MIDI Controller

By Iacobus

from Massachusetts

Comments about Korg nanoPAD MIDI Controller - Black:

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.

great design, lousy product

By drumjazz

from durham, nc

Comments about Korg nanoPAD MIDI Controller - Black:

This is a pretty cool idea that just isn't built well. This is my third try with this thing, and this one has bad, non-functioning pads, too. Unfortunate, since Korg has usually built extremely good products. The editing software that you must download from the website worked fine, BTW.
