Entry level laptops are 13.3' "widescreen" and no firewire that's the best for you. You should know that already! It's your fault if you think that you should have more options. Apple knows best. See how lovely nanokey fits next to Macbook

1. Name of the product and current version:

Korg nano keys



2. When you bought the product:

Today

3. Why you bought it:

wanted a portable small keyboard that would fit in my back pack

4. How much did it cost:

£35.99

5. Installation / Setup:

plug and play

6. What do you like about it?:

ok i love that they still managed to put the color led's to indicate octave, the size and sheer simplicity of it and i really like the illuminated korg enblem
the pitch and mode buttons are great, simply press to activate and on depress it deactivates.

7. What don’t you like about it?:

the look, it is admittedly plasticy but what do you really expect? the keys need getting used to being qwerty butbetter than your actual keyboard

shiney keys would look nicer

I agree.

I guess the delay has been because no one could foresee that SO MUCH could be achieved on a laptop

yes good point, and as the lap dogs have been getting a bigger bite the need for these accessories have become relevant enough to kick the production gears into action

the NANO keys is pretty useless when trying to get the most out of a monophonic sound, press a key you get a sound press another key you get the new sound but release it again and where on a normal keyboard you would go back to the original sound this just stops even if your finger still is on the first key, no show stopper but a little disappointing if you love your mono riffs, its to do with the keys being qwerty
EDIT: Was massive related

Hey sureno – going to have to disagree with you on this one.

I’ve just double checked by using the nanoKEY to control both Rob Papen Blue and my Virus TI (set to mono lead patches) and it works well. Press and hold a C (I hear a C), press a D (I hear a D), release the D but still holding the C from before (I hear the C).

In fact, because the nanoKEY has such “low action” keys, I actually find it easier to play fast leads on it rather then a normal keyboard.

Maybe it’s some kind of setup problem? Which synth/VI are you using?

Wow, that was quick work.

Hmmm. Well I've just tried on Massive and it doesn't work - with either my nanoKEY OR my Virus Keyboard. This must be a Massive thing?

my bad its the majority of mono presets in massive that doesn't allow for usual mono key work, just found a couple that worked with the nano keys
