Another great review. The piece in the middle's terrific. In your opinion, is it more practical to have multiple faders at hand or a single motorized one like the Presonus Faderport/Frontier Alphatrack?

Thanks Ian, thats a good question. I've not used the Alphatrack, but the Faderport I have and I liked it, apart from the fact that you needed the PSU to move the fader, it's not USB powered.

I think the Faderport probably steals it as it has mechanical and status feedback for whichever channel you have selected. However, it can only do a single channel, so if you want more hands on then this is going to give you, as long as you dont need moving faders and bi-directional communication

Yeh spot on agree with Nick on this - a total no-brainer , immediately went out and nabbed one myself for 40notes...just uber handy to have lying about.

i am really enjoying my nanoKontrol except for the fact that the values jump if you move the knobs and faders after returning to a past scene. does anyone else have that issue?

mapmap - in Ableton, you can change the Takeover mode (in midi settings). Try that to prevent knob jump. (unfortunately, that's kind of nature of the beast with absolute knobs.)
