Get your classroom connected with the Nano Series!

The Korg NanoKEY Studio and NanoKONTROL Studio are not only some of the only Bluetooth MIDI compatible USB MIDI controllers available today, they’re also some of the most affordable MIDI controllers, period. With a wealth of controls right at your students fingertips, the Nanos make teaching composition, recording, production, and even video editing an immersive and hands-on experience.

 Expand your music program without expanding your budget: NanoKEY Studio and NanoKONTROL Studio are an extremely affordable way to attract musical learners of all styles to your music program. Their inviting tactile interface allows a greater creative scope to your lessons, beyond the band, choir, or orchestra and into the realms of composition, production, and recording.

Bundled with codes for free versions of Korg’s award winning iOS software, NanoKEY Studio and NanoKONTROL Studio allow your students to begin learning to create right out of the box on their iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. The Nanos’ feature-rich controls allow students to realize their creative visions more easily and intuitively than ever before.

Run up to 30 Nanos in a single classroom, with a quick one-time setup to assign unique identifiers to each Nano, and never have to worry about connectivity issues again. Simply activate Bluetooth on the student’s chosen device, and scroll to the matching Nano from the list of available Bluetooth devices. Connectivity over USB is also quick and easy, with little-to-no setup time required.

NanoKEY Studio features a two-octave 25-key button keyboard, a touchpad-XY controller, 8 programmable knobs, and trigger buttons which can control rhythmic sounds. There are also chord and arpeggiation modes, and the ability to make certain scales light up- learning the modes has never been easier!
