I bought it for drum track programming in my DAW. Unfortunately shortly afterwards I got an electronic drum kit so I don't use it for that task anymore. It is good for triggering loops in Matrix View in Sonar or for controlling various switches in my DAW, eg. playback control or track switching.
It would be nice to have additional midi out port for use with other MIDI hardware without need for a computer on.
I really like bundled software. AAS electric pianos and acoustic guitars are high quality software instruments and each of them sells separately for EUR99 each. That makes every controller in nano series a real bargain!
I really like this little thing. I don't use it as much as I intended to, but when I do it works very well. The pads/triggers feel solid and have good response, the control surface is good as well, and the banks function enables versatile usage scenarios.
I mainly tend to use it for triggering drum samples and beats, although it has many other uses and could probably be a big help for DJs or sample players in live situations - it might even be used as a proper instrument if one configures their software meticulously, which I have not yet done.
Still I am happy that I bought this and it sits nicely next to my nanoKEY and nanoKONTROL, and some day I might even expand my collection.
