Show full description »

The Korg nanoKEY 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.

Despite its small size, the Korg nanoKEY goes HUGE when it comes to functionality, yet its intuitive layout provides extremely easy operation for any user. The Korg Nano key features a great-feeling 25-key velocity-sensitive keyboard that’s ideal for song production. The keys can also be set to send MIDI control data, further expanding its power.

When Korg set out to build a slim-line MIDI controller keyboard, they utilized their years of experience in manufacturing innovative MIDI keyboards to create a great-feeling, velocity sensitive keyboard based off a laptop keyboard. The resulting 25-note keyboard on the nanoKEY will transmit your playing dynamics to your software accurately and expressively. In CC (Control Change) MODE, the keys become MIDI controllers, allowing you to control any MIDI assignable parameters within your software.

The Octave Shift function offers immediate access to the entire MIDI note range. Pitch and modulation buttons are also provided, giving your performances the kind of expression that you would expect from any controller regardless of its size.

With the "KORG KONTROL Editor" (downloadable free of charge from korg.com), you can customize the nanoKEY to match your control needs. It lets you select between three velocity curves or fixed velocity, set MIDI CC values, and even allows you to edit the assignments for the minimum and maximum values of the control change messages transmitted by the modulation buttons or in CC MODE.

As an added value, the nanoKEY includes a download code for the full version of Korg’s M1Le, which faithfully recreates the legendary Korg M1 workstation. Plus, an upgrade path will let you graduate to the Legacy DIGITAL EDITION software suite, which has an even more expansive version of the M1, the renowned WaveStation and 19 great MDEX effects.

Korg Nano Key Reviews


no an



Korg NanoKey

I bought this for Christmas, just received it and am already having to return it.

Within 20 minutes of use the keys have come off which was definitely disappointing.

I wouldn't recommend this to someone who wants to make music or learn to play.

I am not buying anything from the Korg Nano series again.

korg nanokey

Horses for courses, if your a keyboard player it may not be for you , however its small light an does the trick , I use reason and it certainly beats messing around with a matrix to get a tune out , the build aint the strongest, but for the price I think its cool ,quite impressed with the mod and pitch buttons, realy simple to use, all in all it fills the gap for a midi keyboard thats small and light and fits in your laptop bag , work on the build korg and it would be tops , best thing Ive bought sinse reason .


Korg Nano Key

I\'ve had my Nano keys for a day and I\'m already thinking of returning it.

I bought it with the intention of learning keys in the hour that falls between going to bed and going to sleep however the keys make quite a racket (just like typing) and this keeps the missus up and that is a no-no.

Admittedly it is one of the most compact and cost effective solutions to having a keyboard on the go but after 10 minutes of trying to do slides and/or anything fancy, one of the keys popped off and I\'m finding it very difficult to get it to go back on and stay on.

I think 5 stars is suitable as it\'s not all bad..

well made chassis

Badly made keys
noisy to play

If you\'re thinking of getting one don\'t buy it as your main keyboard as you\'ll get very annoyed very quickly.
