25-Key Keyboard Controller
Nektar - 'SE25'
25-key MIDI Keyboard Controller Continuing Nektar’s long line of high-quality, affordable MIDI controllers comes the company’s latest, most innovative controller yet, the Nektar ‘SE25’. This sleek 25-key controller is brimming with killer features and is also hugely portable to boot. Sporting 25 velocity-sensitive mini keys, 3 velocity curves, 6 assignable buttons to offer hands-on control over all the essentials you’d expect to find on a MIDI controller. The SE25 has absolutely everything you could need to control your DAW, and what’s more, it’s small enough to fit in your rucksack!
• 25 velocity-sensitive mini keys
• 3 velocity curves (default, soft, hard)
• 6 buttons: Octave Up/Down, PB1/PB2, Sustain, Part 2
• “S” button: Assignable to Sustain or Modulation
• Works with any DAW or MIDI music software on OS X, Windows and Apple iOS.
• Connections: Micro USB port (USB-powered)
Small is Beautiful!
ultimate mobilityThe Nektar SE25 is a great solution for any mobile production setup. Nektar's most compact MIDI keyboard controller is about as wide as a laptop and gives you all you need to create music on the move: 25 mini keys (that actually play well), six control buttons and Nektar DAW Integration. So the SE25 is way more powerful than it might seem at first glance.
Mobile Action - The Keyboard
velocity-sensitive keysThe keys are the most important feature for a MIDI controller keyboard: They transport your playing and musical ideas into the computer. As the SE25 is designed to be ultimately mobile and fit in any backpack, there was simply no room to fit full-size keys. But still we wanted it to be playable well. So we developed a new velocity-sensitive mini-keybed for the SE25.
Despite these keys’ miniscule dimensions, you can play them expressively with a defined and firm feel. What’s more, a choice of three different velocity curves allows you to adjust the keyboard response to your playing style. These keys are ready for action!
toggle between keyboard configurationsSimply press the dedicated “2” button to momentarily shift the octave, add an octave or harmony layer while you play – or switch to a different channel: The unique Part Two feature will enable you to play in ways not even possible on keyboards with many more keys! What’s so special about this? Well, the moment you let go of the Part Two button, the SE25 reverts back to its original settings. So you can toggle back-and-forth between two different keyboard configurations in realtime. A fun performance feature!
The “2” button is assignable to Octave, MIDI Channel, Transpose, Layer and Latch or a combination of these features.
Modulate - Performance Controls
Intuitive Simple ControlsPitch Bend, Modulation and Sustain are key ingredients for dynamic keyboard performances. So we found a way to shrink the controls to size and put them right at your fingertips. Six buttons to the left of the keyboard are pre-assigned to octave shift, transpose and sustain. Don’t need transpose?
Then assign the transpose buttons to Pitch Bend, MIDI Volume, Pan, Track* or Patch* change instead (*= requires Nektar DAW Integration). And the “S” Sustain button can alternatively be used to control modulation.
Capture your Ideas

You've probably read the USB Tekspek, and perhaps your intrigue, or product interest, has lead you to look up Firewire as well. The two are similar in some respects, particularly some of the products that use the two technologies. However, Firewire has its differences, which means it has both benefits and drawback when compared to USB. This Tekspek will look at Firewire and also look at it with respect to USB.
