Hello Ana Rita Simonka and welcome to these forums. You'll find many helpful people here and a lot of useful information. Make sure that you get the excellent User Guide:
http://www.cockos.com/reaper/userguide.php

You should be able to plug them into 2 different USB sockets (a USB hub might be OK), enable them in the Preferences / Audio / MIDI devices then select the keyboard as the Input device for a track or use the controller to automate all sorts of things.

We could be in severe danger of offering vast amounts of possibly irrelevant information. If you can let us know what you have done so far we can take it step by step.

Smile I am almost there....

Hi!

Thank you for your assistance!
01_ NanoKontrol is working and it seems to be ok, but I had to set it as Control Surface/Add/Mackie Universal. Anymore tips? The only thing wrong is that some lights are not working ( the solo button don´t light but is works), so I will call the Korg assistance for help.
02_Microkey doesn´t work... I followed the steps: Midi Devices/Input and Output/ok, and after this, add a VST Instrument on the track (using Korg Legacy), only could play using my mouse... it has to be some way to indicate to the track how to recognize the keyboard...
That´s all...

I did not realise that the nanoKontrol could act as a Control Surface in Reaper; I thought that it was 'just' a MIDI controller.

For the keyboard:
-- enable it as an Input in Preferences as you have done (no need to enable it as an Output),
-- add a VSTi to a track, as you have done,
-- RecArm the track, by cxlicking the Red RecArm button
-- select the keyboard device as the MIDI Input to that track (drag the lower edge of the Track Control Panel (TCP) down until you see 3 rows of controls, click the input field and select Input: MIDI > the nanoKey > all channels
-- check that Input Monitoring is enabled (the small speaker button should be green).



--------------------------------
Silly question: How many hands do you need to do this?

Talking Wow!

Hi;
Good, the microkey is working!
Thank you so much, I am going to make some recording tests,
It´s so nice when we have this kind of assistance;
That´s why I am changing Sony Acid by Reaper under suggestion of my friends that have more experience in Midi than me.
