It’s rare when you find a machine that can capture the authenticity of acoustic pianos, the richness of vintage EPs, the soul of a B3, AND be a powerhouse synth / controller. Nord has absolutely NAILED this with the Stage 2 EX. It is the perfect marriage between real, and synth. The flexibility it gives me with the 2 slots and routing makes it the perfect centerpiece to command my rig from. I’ve also recently added a C2D to my rig. There are a lot of B3 emulations out there, but NONE compare to the C2D. I love being able to have the sound of a real B3 without lugging around a real B3. CLUTCH! Nord will ALWAYS be my first choice.
