nano basket lets you change the MIDI data sent by the korg nanokontrol. this makes it easy to create templates/presets that can be dumped to the nanokontrol. which, in turn, makes it easy to create a template for my microkorg XL, where the nanokontrol can be used to manipulate all the parameters normally hidden beneath several layers on menus on the MK XL. makes it much nicer for realtime changes, as well as exploring synthesis in a much more hands-on way than going through the software editor or using the three knobs on the keyboard itself. the nanokontrol presents 9 knobs, 9 faders, and 18 push-buttons on each “scene.” so with four scenes to switch between, that’s a lot of extra hands-on control of the keyboard.
as soon as i finish reading through the arcane MIDI channel info in the korg manual, i’ll put up a sample template for the nanokontrol+MK XL.
