Keyboard operation in CC mode
The twenty-five keys of the keyboard will function as independent buttons to transmit control change messages. You can specify which MIDI channel the control change message is transmitted on, whether or not each key is enabled, the key type, the control change number, as well as the On and Off value.
Global MIDI channel
Global MIDI channel [1.16] This specifies which MIDI channel the nanoKEY will use to transmit note messages, pitch bend messages, as well as MIDI messages that are sent when you press the [MOD] button. This should be set to match the MIDI channel of the MIDI application that youre controlling.
CC MIDI Channel [1.16] This specifies the MIDI channel that control change messages will be transmitted on. Set this to match the MIDI channel of the application youre controlling. Key Enable [Disable/Enable] Enables or disables the key. If a key is disabled, operating that key will not transmit a MIDI message. Key Behavior [Momentary/Toggle] Selects one of the following two modes: Momentary Pressing the key will send a control change message with the On value, releasing the key will send a control change message with the Off value. Toggle Each time you press the key the control change message will alternate between the On value and the Off value. Control Change Number [0.127] Specifies the CC number of the control change message that will be transmitted. On Value [0.127] Specifies the On value of the control change message.

The keyboard transmits note messages, and it is velocity sensitive. You can specify the transposition and the velocity curve. MIDI messages are transmitted on the Global MIDI Channel.
Connections and power
Connect the nanoKEY to your computer with a USB cable. The power will turn on, and the KORG name will light up.
Transpose [-12.+12] Use this to transpose the pitch of the keyboard up or down in semitone steps. The range is -12 to +12. Velocity Curve [Velocity Curve 1.3/Const Velocity] The velocity curve determines how the force with which you play the keyboard will affect the output level. You can choose one of three velocity curves, or select a fixed velocity.
127 Curve 1 Curve 2 Curve 3 Curve 1 A curve that allows even soft strikes to produce loud notes Curve 2 The normal curve Curve 3 A curve that requires strong strikes to produce loud notes Const The velocity value will always be constant Strong
Parts and their functions
If youre using a passive (non-powered) USB hub, the nanoKEY may fail to power-on because it isnt receiving enough power. If this is so, please connect the nanoKEY to a powered USB hub or directly to your computer.
Restoring the factory settings
If you turn on the power while holding down the [OCTAVE DOWN] button, [OCTAVE UP] button, and [MOD] button, the settings of the nanoKEY will return to their factory-set condition, and the KORG logo will light up. The process of restoring the factory settings will take several seconds after you turn on the power. You must not turn off the power during this time.

Const Velocity Value [1.127] This specifies the velocity value that is transmitted if the velocity curve is set to Const. This is useful for sounds such as organ, etc.
[PITCH DOWN] / [PITCH UP] buttons
You can transmit pitch bend messages by operating the [PITCH DOWN]/[PITCH UP] button. These MIDI messages are transmitted on the Global MIDI Channel.
4. [OCTAVE DOWN] / [OCTAVE UP] buttons
These select the pitch of the keyboard in steps of an octave. The pitch will shift downward by one octave each time you press the [OCTAVE DOWN] button. The pitch will shift upward by one octave each time you press the [OCTAVE UP] button. By pressing the [OCTAVE DOWN] button and [OCTAVE UP] button simultaneously you can reset the octave shift to +/-0.
Pitch Bend Speed [1.4] The pitch bend speed specifies the amount of time between when the [PITCH DOWN]/[PITCH UP] buttons are pressed and when the pitch bend reaches its maximum value. A setting of 1 is the fastest, and higher values will produce a slower pitch bend.
