Nord Lead 3 Acoustic


The Nord Lead 3 is much appreciated for its extremely flexible sound engine, featuring a combination of traditional shapeable waveforms and a very intuitive 2 or 4 operator FM engine. All this would be routed through the high quality multi filter for further shaping.

The Filter section in the original unit has two separate modes, Single Filter Mode and Multi Filter Mode with various filter types, including LP, HP, BP, Notch, Triple Peak and Triple Notch. These samples are just as exciting as the original unit.

Update: the v2 versions of the Nord Classics contains the Alternate Start marker that Nord Wave users can activate to skip the attack part of the sample.
