Agree, very nice. Although I believe that the Nanokeys' keys were also velocity sensitive. One thing that I do find regrettable though is that none of these products has a midi-out which could make them really useful as a quick add-on keyboard to a synth or sound module.

Marc, yes the nanoKEY is also velocity sensitive. I think the issue with adding a MIDI out is that it would need a power source or place to put batteries,unless you power it off USB

yeah also really interested in this but a midi out WOULD clinch it. also a lot o people have said they'd like to see some kind of pitch bend/mod control, but they seem to be squeezing everything they can out of 13 "!

What would be interesting is if someone could build a small box that takes the usb input from these gadgets and distills the midi to a regular midi out. Maybe even allow several of these to merge into one midi out. As they all seem to conform to some windows standard midi driver protocol I'm guessing the functionality shouldn't be too difficult to implement.

The knobs AND pads are a great feature that the Korg doesn't have...Nice Setup... It's good to have options.
