I quite enjoy my reverse mK, that nord on the other hand just isn't doing it for me. :?

I think the opposite. The black keys just don't fit into the green/brown colour of the MK. But that's a matter of taste I guess.
Totally agreed, the MK needs higher contrast to get away with the reversed keys, the brown and green are too earthy.

I think the NL really should have been given aftertouch for a special edition, I can't believe it still doesn't have it.

They should have given the MK s**t brown keys with green small keys.

And then planted it in the forest and never spoken of it again. :lol:

Or they could have made the body white or black, that would have been quite fantastic. They should have just put in a little bit more effort...

Yes, anything but that horrible stomach-wrenching red colour. It makes me sick. I mean it.

Well...nords have sorta been Ferrari red since day 1...I'm just upset they didn't make any additions other than the reverse keys. I mean if you're going to charge me more, make it worth my while. Add aftertouch for the love of God....or even a simple sequencer and effects or something.

Sure is. I like the overall Clavia look though - I usually can't stand gaudy colours but it just works with the Nord.

I think it looks good, but until I expand my expendable income a great deal, I will never pay a cent more for the exact same machine with a different paint job (this, the P 08 signature, etc etc). Not saying I think they're bad products, just that they are clearly made for someone other than me.

Tallow, you come up with some real gems. And, dammit, I spit tuna on my laptop. :lol:

I'm a shallow person, I know, but that's exactly the way I felt about the Access Virus 'Classic' desktop unit I had. I couldn't stand looking at it, so I striped it off with tape and was going to paint it, but changed my mind and sold it before possibly wrecking it.

About the new NL - I think it would have worked better if the board was all red - without that grey panel surrounding the knobs.
It may not be much news, but at least it means the NL2X should be sticking around for a while.
