The Korg nanoKONTROL 2 is a MIDI controller that connects to a computer USB port. It is very affordable and can be purchased in white as well. This controller is relatively small and does not take up much space at all. It cannot be racked; it will have to be used as a table top unit. I use this controller to control synths and effects racks in my DAW and it works great. At this price, I cannot believe more people are not purchasing it. It works great and has never giving me any issues. Sometimes I use it during shows to tweak synths and other sound in real time and it has never let me down. I think I will be using it for a long time.
Setting up the nanoKONTROL 2 is very quick and easy. It is just like setting up any other MIDI controller or USB controller. I have only used it on my PC running Windows 7 and with Ableton Live. But I am pretty sure it can be used in just about any DAW. I do wish there were some presets built into Ableton for it so I could have had some templates to go off of instead of having to program it all myself. It would have just made it a lot easier but it still wasn’t hard to do it. It was just time consuming getting it all how I wanted it. But after I did it once, I didn’t have to do it again because I can save the template.
I recommend this controller to any DJ or computer musician who wants to use some hardware to tweak things instead of using all software. It really helps me being a DJ having something that is small and doesn’t take up much space to teak sounds and effects with. It is also well built and doesn't seem cheap even though the price is low.
