Great Playing Keyboard
Nektar wanted the SE25 to be extremely portable and able to fit right in your backpack.
To facilitate this, the SE25 has been equipped with mini keys but despite their small size, they don’t compromise on performance.
This newly developed mini-keyboard features 25 velocity-sensitive keys that offer a great feel for expressive performance.
You can even select from three different velocity curves to customise the keyboard to match your playing style!
Unique “2” Feature
A unique feature found on the Nektar SE25 MIDI controller is the “2” function.
With a simple press of the “2” button to the left of the keyboard, the SE25 will shift the octave, allowing you to add an octave or harmony layer while you play.
Let go of the “2” button and it’ll drop you back to your original settings.
But octave shifting isn’t the only thing the Part Two feature does. You can assign the “2” button to Octave, MIDI Channel, Transpose, Layer and Latch or a combination of these features.
You can use Part Two function to go back and forth between two different configurations whenever you want, adding huge amounts of real-time performance potential.
Expressive Performance Controls
Speaking of performance potential, the Nektar SE 25 MIDI controller also features Pitch Bend, Modulation and Sustain.
These great features are integral to dynamic and expressive keyboard performance but not often found on mini keyboards.
To the left of the SE25’s keyboard is a set of six buttons which are assigned to octave shift, sustain and transpose functions.
You can choose to assign the transpose button a range of parameters such as Pitch Bend, MIDI Volume, Pan and more.
Plus, for extra convenience and customisation, you can also use the “S” Sustain button for modulation control.
Intuitive DAW Integration
Not just allowing you to make music where you want, the Nektar SE25 keyboard allows you to make music how you want.
This compact and highly portable MIDI keyboard currently supports the following popular DAWs:
- Digital Performer
- Studio One
Connect the Nektar SE25 to your computer and boot up your favourite DAW then just press the Play and Rewind buttons together.
The transport mode will boot up and Nektar DAW Integration software will give you control over your DAW’s transport bar.
You can even connect the Nektar SE25 keyboard to your iOS device such as the iPad by using a camera connection kit.
