The Nord Electro 5D was reviewed in the new November 2015 issue of Future Music magazine where it received a 10 out of 10 overall rating and the magazine’s 'Platinum Award'
…without doubt, this is the best sounding and most versatile Electro yet - at this price it’s pretty much unbeatable!
The piano memory has jumped from 180MB to 1GB which now means you can load much bigger piano samples, including the lovely new XL Silver Grand and my favourite, the XL Bright Grand
The Electro feels like a much more complete instrument and has been improved in all the right places
You now have two parts available at once that can be split and layered and addressed from separate MIDI channels. For example, you can place an organ on the left, and a piano on the right, (or layer them) or piano on the left and sampled strings on the right (or layer them). The benefits of this are huge and make the E5 a much more self-contained machine than previous models
