Using KORG NanoPAD2 to trigger samples

Hi all,
Pretty new to Studio One 4 Prime and I've been enjoying it so far. Because I was having fun with it I decided to buy a KORG NanoKEY2 and NanoPAD2, and I've had success with the NanoKEY but I've still not managed to get the NanoPAD to work. Studio One treats it like a keyboard so I'm not able to get full function out of it, such as using it to trigger samples, or full use of the X/Y pad.
Should I instead add it as a control surface or instrument? I added it as a keyboard because the other two methods didn't seem to give any input.
If there are any tutorials specific to this device or similar devices please let me know - while the NanoKONTROL seems to be supported by Studio One 4, the NanoKEY and NanoPAD aren't in the list of hardware that is naturally supported.

Computer make/model: HP Pavilion 15 (laptop)
Operating System: Windows 10
