Capable of combining several types of synthesis (analog modeling, FM and digital microwave), we loved it for its sound quality and versatility. And it is awfully powerful! The different morphing modes, the return of the arpeggiator and the new effects are great assets, especially considering that they are multitimbral and four-part independent.
Let's move on now to the real innovation in Nord Lead 4: Impulse Morphing ─ the possibility to briskly switch from a group of settings to another one by pressing one single button. ...the morphing covers almost all synthesis parameters (55 destinations), whether they're continuous or discrete, including: oscillator waveforms, intermodulation types, filter types, effect choices, which would be impossible to do with continuous morphing. And that's how a boring bass can become a monstrous chord in the blink of an eye.Read the full review in AudioFanzine Magazine
