Once again, great review. I love the opening shot with the keyboard appearing massive! :-) I'm looking forward to the NanoKontrol review and I hope you'll do one where you integrate all three to see how they work together.

Yep, another great review - keep them coming. Just one question though, did Nick come straight from Guantanamo Bay?

The CC mode is great if you are using Live or using a CCt o CC/CC to (N)RPN converter, but I think it pretty useless if your not a Live/tracker user or having a lot of stuff with on/off-swithes.

A fair review, as always. I own one of these and, you're right, it's very easy indeed to accidentally hit the 'CC mode' button, thereby cutting off whatever you're playing. One thing that would have been worth mentioning, however, is how noisy the keys are. They make a dreadful rattle and are impossible to play quietly. That matters because one of the selling points of the nanoKEY is that it's supposed to be something you can carry around and play anywhere, like on a train for example. Well, it would be pretty annoying sitting near somewhere messing around with one of these on a train, I can tell you. Much noisier than someone typing on a laptop. It's a shame that Korg didn't pay more attention to this issue and find some way of dampening the rattle.
