DX Electric Pianos

New Synth Piano category in the Nord Piano Library

2015-05-20

Our first addition to our new Synth Piano category in the Nord Piano Library are two classic sounds from the legendary DX synthesizer, namely Full Tines and Rubba Roads. These iconic synth pianos are incredibly expressive and we've really treated them as we do with acoustic instruments to capture their dynamic ranges. The Full Tines has a brillant, rich character and was one of the defining sounds in popular music during the 80's and 90's. The Rubba Roads is a more mellow type of sound that shares many sound characteristics with old vintage electric pianos.

Check out some sound demos below and download the new sounds here!

The Nord Piano Library is compatible with the Nord Electro 3/4/5, Nord Stage/EX/2/2 EX and Nord Piano 1/2.
