    When I have set my Global settings on the NK Studio I try to write these settings to the controller and I get a message that says "Failed to Open MIDI port." And indicates port 0.
    Huh? Please help.

    Dear Paul, I got around that by clicking the set MIDI manually option in the Global editor (even though it suggests not to). I'm still struggling with the MIDI timeout, if anyone has any suggestions. Up all night and still can't get the thing to work!

    I will have to get substantial immersions thru Korg's tutorials before to make comments.

    Hi, i have the same problems, "failed to open midi port or" "timeout connection", i tried to set korg editor to detect manually or automatically, used korg utility to uninstall midi ports not used, manually removed all the midi ports on the windows registry and reinstalled from scratch the drivers... I think the nanoKONTROL can't to be used alternatively whit usb cable and bt connection. If i install bt drivers they work, but if i add usb driver the nanokontrol is recognized but midi connection fail. The nanoKontrol consunes a lot of battery so i need to alternate usb/bt mode immediately, how can i solve?

    Hi, I've got the NanoKontrol Studio correctly connected to my 9.7 inch iPad Pro, GarageBand recognizes it, but none of the keys have any effect. It works fine on my Mac Pro and Logic Pro X though. Am I missing anything? A setup maybe?
    Thanks for your support.

    While Ableton Live 9 being listed here, and the promotional image also show Ableton Live on Korg Website,

    I found no easy way to use Korg nanoKontrol Studio with Ableton Live 9, while working with Korg Gadget and Logic Pro X is perfect.

    Could anyone tell me how?

    It works fine with Live 10. I rang their support guys and they answered the question immediately. It is in fact in their documentation. Here's how it worked:
    1. You need to power it off with usb plugged in and the system in standby.
    2. Press the Scene button down and the right arrow (underneath where it says Marker) together.
    3. Power it on using the usb button.
    4. Then open ableton --> Preferences --> Link/Midi
    5. Under a new control surface Select "MackieControl".
    6. Under input select "nanoKONTROL Studio (CTRL)"
    7. Under Output select "nanoKONTROL Studio (CTRL)"

    Now in Ableton it should work If not, then try ringing their support team on the contact us section.

    No hay modo de conectar nanokontrol2 con Garageband. Probé con el plugin que ofrecen y nada. No hay modo alguno.
    MacOS Catalina 10.15.5 Garageband 10.3.4

    I am having the worst luck trying to set up my nanoKontrol2 to work with FL studio 20.
    I've followed all the instructions but I just can't seem to get it to work. if anyone can help, id greatly appreciate it.
    I'm also not sure where I can find the CC codes of FL studio to even begin manually mapping them with the Kontrol editor.

    Despite this Pre-Sales FAQ shows support for Cubase only through version 8, I was able to get it connected properly in Cubase 10. The instructions however here AND even in Steinberg's Remote Control PDF documentation still shows the old menu choice for adding the Mackie MCU Pro control as a Device. The new menu choices are now Studio => Studio Setup where you then click on the big + sign at the top left of that dialog box allowing you to add the Mackie as a device. From then on the directions are the same.

    At first I was quite concerned finding this FAQ stating Cubase through v8 was supported after initially struggling to get the Studio to work because the FAQ leads one to believe that versions of Cubase after v8 might NOT be supported. It would behoove Korg to update both this presales FAQ AND add a supplement or revise the manual to properly support setting up Cubase as a DAW with this product.
