Says it all, really, but in case you were curious, here's a quick clip of me playing the Kronos German Grand from the NS2. Apologies for the slight background noise, which needs investigation...

Nice playing it does sound good.
Seems you have a choice of keyboard actions there ... either awful or terrible wink

IĀ“m also planning to control a Kronos X 61 with my new Nord Piano 2 .. pretty sure it will work without tweaking the velocity-settings too much apart from the preset-settings of the Kronos ... ?

Did you have any problems in order to do a proper velo-setup for the Nord-Action?

Yes, it does sound a bit "plinky-plonky". Sustain seems lacking. That said, the recording is not good and is in mono. I've heard other examples of the Kronos German Grand which have been wonderfully good. I like the playing and arrangement here though.
