Beautiful to behold and to play.
**Nord is happy to announce new OS updates for Nord Electro 6, Nord Piano 4 and Nord Grand adding support for the Nord Sample Editor 3 software
The Nord Grand is a knockout stage piano from first sight to first listen to first show. Its striking appearance with its sleek, modern lines and arresting Nord Red finish presents a magnificent presence on stage, in your studio, and even when you are relating to it one-on-one in long, solitary practice sessions. There is a pride of ownership and sense of mission that descends upon a musician sitting down to a Nord Grand. The Nord Piano Library and the Nord Sample Library can be downloaded in their entirety from the Nord website.
The Sounds of the Nord Grand
A primary focus of the sound engine of any professional stage piano must be its grand piano timbre. There is no more unforgiving performance environment than solo piano, and Nord’s grand piano library gives a musician all of the confidence of sitting down to a top-quality piano.
The Nord Grand factory bank includes 10 Grand Pianos, 9 Upright Pianos, 10 Enhanced Electric Pianos, Clavinet, Digital Pianos and more. They are presented with different equalization weightings, and are sampled from a variety of world-class pianos and sought-after vintage instruments. Nord’s state-of-the-art sampling techniques capture the extraordinary nuances and real character of the source instruments with breathtaking realism. All sounds in the registry can easily be replaced using the Nord Sound Manager. Nord’s exclusive Nord Piano Library is constantly updated with new unique world class sounds, and is always free of charge.
Nord’s attention to sonic detail extends to their Advanced String Resonance system, which reproduces the intricate interplay of piano strings resonating at their fundamental or harmonic frequencies when other notes are played. It is an essential element of high-level piano authenticity. It also adds the rich resonant ambience of a real piano when playing with pedal down.
That’s Not All, Folks
Musicians don’t live by piano samples alone, and Nord supplies the professional with an exquisite selection of sounds apart from its arguable flagship Grand Piano timbres. The Sample Synth Section features a broad selection of Strings, Brass, Synths, Choirs and many other high quality sounds from the Nord Sample Library 3.0.
The extensive selection of sounds from the Nord Sample Library 3.0 includes the exclusively licensed sounds of the legendary Mellotron and Chamberlin. All sounds can be quickly replaced using the Nord Sound Manager.
The Sample Synth is equipped with essential controls for attack, decay/release and dynamics (filter/velocity) and dedicated Category buttons for quick navigation and selection of sample sounds. It is possible to create your own samples using the free Nord Sample Editor software for Windows and Mac.
Nord Grand Effects Section
The Effect section has a wide range of instantly tweakable high quality stereo effects modeled after classic stomp boxes. All effects can be assigned freely to the Piano or Sample Synth section. Included effects are:
Effects 1 - Pan, Tremolo, Wah-wah and Ring Modulator. All effects can be controlled with a Control Pedal
