If the piano is at the heart of your music but you also have a passion for vintage sounds, the Nord Piano 2 is an outstanding one-axe solution for the discerning ear.
I’ve always had the impression that Nord keyboards are made by and for real keyboard fanatics. It’s nice to have this attention to detail in a stage piano. In addition to great grands, it’s one of the only stage pianos to offer sampled uprights, and they’re charmingly realistic. Add convincing electric pianos and samples of classic synths like the Oberheim OB-8 and Prophet-5, and you’ve got a vintage-lover’s paradise. It’s easy to navigate and sure to inspire the piano-centric musician.
Excellent sounds. Synth section splits or layers piano and EP sounds with anything from the Nord Sample Library. Separate wave memory for piano and synth sections. Meaty weighted keyboard. Onboard delay and other new stereo effects. Transmits MIDI over USB.Full review at Keyboard Magazine
