The SE25 from Nektar is their most compact USB MIDI Controller Keyboard yet. It features 25 keys, DAW control - and fits into any backpack!

SMALL IS BEAUTIFUL: ULTIMATE MOBILITY

The 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. And we haven’t even mentioned the unique Part 2 feature yet…

SE25: THE MINI CONTROLLER WITH THE NEKTAR EXTRA

MOBILE ACTION – THE KEYBOARD

The 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 it still needed to be more playable than any of the competition..

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!

DOUBLE UP – PART TWO

Simply 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 real time. 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

Pitch Bend, Modulation and Sustain are key ingredients for dynamic keyboard performances, yet are missing usually missing on controllers this small.

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.

And the “S” Sustain button can alternatively be used to control modulation.
