Add to Wish List
The Nektar SE25 is a great solution for any mobile production setup. This 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
Designed to be ultimately mobile and fit in any backpack, the SE25 features a velocity-sensitive mini-keybed for outstanding playability. Despite the 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 realtime. A fun performance feature!

The "2" button is assignable to Octave, MIDI Channel, Transpose, Layer and Latch or a combination of these features.

NEKTAR DAW INTEGRATION
Give your trackpad or mouse a break and control DAW transport functions and track selection directly from the SE25: Simply press the Play and Rewind buttons simultaneously to enter transport mode and our custom NEKTAR DAW Integration software lets you control your DAW!

Nektar DAW Integration for SE25 currently supports Bitwig, Cubase, Garageband, Logic, Nuendo, Digital Performer, FL Studio, Mixcraft, Reason, Reaper, Sonar and Studio One. (In order to take advantage of Nektar DAW Integration, you need to register your SE25 and download the integration files from your user account.)

CAPTURE YOUR IDEAS BITWIG 8-TRACK INCLUDED
You can start producing, performing, and designing sounds like a pro from day one with the included Bitwig 8-Track DAW. It includes over 50 software instruments and effects for use on up to 8 audio or MIDI project tracks, and you can use any 3rd party VST plug-ins you might own, too. The 'Bitwig Essentials Package' comes as part of this package as well, featuring a highly versatile handpicked selection of loops, clips and samples, to make it even easier to get you started.

With Nektar DAW Integration you can control track selection and transport controls directly from the SE25, making this a fantastic combination. If you are just starting out, you will find it's the perfect way to take your first steps in the world of digital music creation.
