Excellent review in the latest issue of MusicTech Magazine!
The Nord Stage 2 EX HP76 is reviewed in the October issue of MusicTech magazine where it receives a 10 out of 10 overall rating and the magazine’s coveted ‘Excellence’ award.
“Overall, it’s hard to fault the EX HP76. It provides probably the best level of portability vs keyboard quality within the Stage range, so will be a popular choice. As for the range itself, those preset tweaks and extra memories refine an already excellent set of keyboards. Incredible sounds, enough control to dig deep into them and a superb, hands-on effects section”.
New samples, new layout and individual sound previews!
The Nord Sample Library 2.0 is our essential selection of quality sampled sounds from a wide range of genres. In addition to a new improved layout for easier navigation, we've added individual sound demos and optimized a lot of our existing samples.
The Nord Sample Library 2.0 is compatible with Nord Stage 2 EX, Nord Stage 2, Nord Electro 5, Nord Electro 4 and Nord Piano 2. Please make sure you have the latest OS and Nord Sound Manager before transferring Nord Sample Library 2.0 files to your Nord.
Note: If you have an instrument that is not compatible with the Nord Sample Library 2.0, you can still find all of our first generation samples in the Nord Sample Library Archive.

This OS v1.22 update fixes a bug introduced with the recently released v1.20 where the cleaning process in Nord Sound Manager could cause Nord Electro 5 to hang. This update also fixes a bug where set lists would sometimes reference the wrong programs when re-organizing programs.
OS v1.22 also includes the important bug fix from v1.20 where Drawbar adjustments in the Nord Electro 5 HP would start from the wrong value.
In addition to this, OS v1.22 also includes a number of great improvements for all Electro 5 models:
The Electro 5 now can be fully utilized as top manual when B3 organ is used in MIDI Split Mode, as either of the two presets now can have percussion activated (only one at a time).
Added Menu Setting for using the Sustain Pedal to change Rotary Speaker speed.
The Transpose feature can now be applied to MIDI in or out, through the MIDI menu.
Part Upper now supports Pitch Bend from an external MIDI keyboard, when in MIDI Split Mode.
We strongly recommend all Nord Electro 5 users to update to OS v1.22!
