Thanks a lot for sharing your experience with the NanoKey Studio controller.

Where did you pair the BLE controller?
Directly in the G-Stomper MIDI settings?
Or did you pair it in the Android system Bluetooth settings?
It's definitely worth trying both, as often it behaves differently depending on the pairing method.

I previously used my Akai MPKmini via USB with G-Stomper, so I assumed the NanoKey Studio would work too. will investigate why this doesn't and report back (for reference the USB connection is via 'LogiLink AA0035 0.20m Micro USB B Male to USB A Female OTG Adapter Cable')
That is interesting.
I've noticed something similar with the AKAI LPD8 wireless controller.
It also offers both, BLE and USB. When connecting the controller over USB, then it takes a while (up to 10-15 seconds) until it gets reported.
Compared with other controllers or interfaces this is very long. Other controllers are reported within 1-2 seconds.
However, it could be that your USB OTG adapter (USB to MICRO USB or USB type-c) is not compatible with the interface. I'd recommend to try another adapter, just to be sure that this isn't the cause.
Also, to be able to connect the NanoKey Studio controller over USB, it is required to change the switch to USB (you can toggle between battery and usb).
I'm 99% sure that the NanoKey Studio will work over USB.

That's great to hear, thanks a lot for all the details.
One question: Do the backlit buttons enable (flash) when you fire MIDI events towards the controller?
