  1. I just tested and it works nicely. All the buttons of the Synthstation works fine, but as you can use 4 synths and the precussion at the nanostudio, you can only control the tracks 1, 2 and 3 plus the percussion because there is only 4 tracks buttons in the controller. I was really dissapointed because i couldn't find the way to use the modulation wheel to change some parameters like the cutoff or the LFO. It's seems the Mod Wheel is completly unuseful. I hope the next update could fix that. (My appologises for my poor english)

  2. i have just bought the synthstation with my new synthstation25 keyboard,but i dont know how to record my songs,can somebody give me feed back please?

  3. guys plz plzplz tell me if u got this to work with iphone 4 and tell me how… im dying to know ;( ,,, just bought the synthstation 25 keyboard and the app i also have NS app… the iphone fits just fine but the sound is extremely low i tried turning it up as much as possible still very very low … any suggestions or do you guys think maybe there will be a update fix or something for this? i have iphone 4 ios 4.3.1!! thanks in advance

  4. I read that the Iphone 4 didn't fit in this thing… only the 3. Raise your hand if you have a 4 working properly….. That 4 track limit can b right though. Can you just press the track window on nanostudio and switch to MIDI TRACK 5, record, play, stop. Then go back to the iphone.. instead of using the keyboard buttons. I dont have the synthstation but I do use nanostudio–which is awesome btw.
