Still in doubt?

Here’s what KORG writes about them:

These USB-powered, slim-line controllers are designed to make the most of your valuable studio space, and are small enough to take with you on any musical journey. Place one in front of your laptop, rest one on your workstation, park one on a recording console – or anywhere else you need versatile control over your DAW, virtual instrument, effect or DJ software. Small in size, all three controllers go HUGE when it comes to functionality, yet their intuitive layouts provide extremely easy operation for any user.

So c’mon; meet the nanos! The nanoKEY features a great-feeling 25-key velocity-sensitive keyboard that’s ideal for song production. Each key can also be set to send MIDI control data, further expanding its power. Next up is the nanoPAD, featuring 12 highly responsive trigger pads, each capable of sending up to eight notes – or eight MIDI control messages – simultaneously, in addition to an X-Y touchpad with roll and flam functions for realistic drum programming. Last but not least, nanoKONTROL offers nine faders, nine knobs, 18 switches, plus a full transport section for expansive control; even a flexible note input mode to help you lay down your next big groove!
