if you’re on a PC, you could install Cakewalk and see if the device handling there is more capable. i’ve seen a few folks using the CW learn functions with the nano but not sure if they were successful or went with the AZ controller.
I used nanoKontrol2 for years, until I bought Arturia KeyLab 61 mkII which is excellent keyboard controller and has faders, pads, knobs, too.
In my experience, nanoKontrol2 is an excellent controller, but its functionality depends on its setup.
There is a KORG software that comes with it and you can reassign every control to CC numbers of your choice
Then go to your DAW and find nanoKontrol in the list of MIDI devices. Maybe you’ll need a special driver, as I had to do for Reaper. In my case, it was Mackie Control. Search on nanoKontrol2 or other forums. Then, program every fader, knob etc. to execute what you need. I am pretty sure that you can find something on forums.
I believe it is quite DAW-dependent i.e. how every DAW reacts to controllers.
Reaper was quite difficult with all HW controllers, except my KeyLab which was super easy.
But, nanoKontrol2 worked fine, too.
Not all controllers work fine with every DAW so don’t quit too fast. This is not like Apple world where everything is perfectly integrated…but you pay price for and cannot use any hardware you would like to have. This is more like Windows world where you can use almost any device but you need to search a little bit. And with lower cost.
unfortunately, not all buttons work in both Ableton Live and Bitwig Studio where you can use it just as a (poor) mixer, and you CANNOT use it for my Hammond plugin due to the fact they changed the layout from the version 1 YUK!
Moreover, the Korg support is nonexistent or useless, the forum useless, and I found many articles that mention the difficulties to have all MIDI controller working for all DAWs, mainly due to bad drivers, included the latest Win 10 Korg driver
About the Korg editor, it’s considered a bad tool and I agree on that
It is cumbersome to program, just like the AKAI editor, and your customized setup is just memorized in each musical project, so to be remade by scratch when you create a new project
Now, as you all should know, I hate cumbersome tools/features/routines that drive me away from fun
