New at NAMM 2017

Stunning replica of the Steinway No.1

2017-01-19

We’re happy to present the Steinway no.1 at NAMM 2017 -  a new world unique historical instrument from the Chris Maene Collection!  

Steinway No.1
The first Steinway fortepiano – the No.1 – was designed and constructed by the founder of the company, Heinrich Engelhardt Steinway, in 1836. It is also known as the ”Kitchen Piano” since it was crafted in Heinrich Steinway’s kitchen in Seesen, Germany.

Royal Grand 3D

Elegant, natural and well-balanced Grand Piano

2016-12-21

We are excited to present our first binaural piano recording – taking the Nord piano experience to a new level!

The Royal Grand 3D is our first piano recorded using a dummy head microphone and is a premium concert piano with an elegant, natural and well-balanced tone.

This binaural recording technique is designed for headphone playback, but the Royal Grand 3D sounds amazing on regular stereo speakers too.

Nefertiti MKI (Updated)

Vintage, roadworn Electric Piano in the Nord Piano Library!

2016-11-10

UPDATE 11/9 2016: New version 5.5 fixes an issue with a detuned C# sample.

The Nefertiti MKI is a funky old workhorse that has spent most of its days in the darkest corners of the legendary Nefertiti jazz club in Gothenburg.

Some replaced tines of mixed generations (Square Silver Tone Bars/Ray Mac), tips, pickups and grommets which makes each note special in it’s own individual way. Slight unevenness in timbre, dynamics and sustain are classic attributes in these instruments and a big part of their charm and inspiring playability.

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