Has anybody used the nanoKEY studio with Live? How well does it integrate?

I use it with my iPad and looooove it.

Has loads of features. As far as Ableton Live 'integration', I'm not too knowledgeable. But the controller itself has quite a decent amount of functions. My only gripe is that in arp mode it forces all sources to be the same midi channel. Otherwise you can potentially trigger midi notes from like four different methods.

As a Bluetooth controller it is quite responsive and I often forget that it is wireless while using it. The keys aren't all that great as one would sort of expect. But they make up for it in features like scale functions (with common chords on the upper row of otherwise unused keys)

Is it possible to connect it with Ableton as a midi controller? I can't found any settings to use it

Through USB absolutely, although Korg is usually kind of tricky about their drivers and their driver settings program usually makes you choose between 32 and 64 bit mode.

As for Bluetooth, I have not tested that on my computer

I've had decent luck with:

Control Surface = MackieControlXT
Input = nanoKEY Studio 1 KEYBOARD/CONTROL
Remote = nanoKEY Studio 1 KEYBOARD/CONTROL
