To enhance playability, the Nord C2's keyboard has a firmer action, so you'll get that solid feel of an original tonewheel organ. Take three vintage organs and a baroque pipe organ anywhere, with the Nord C2 dual manual combo organ.
Nord C2 61-key Dual Manual Combo Organ at a Glance:
Packed with the award-winning sounds of the C1
Organ enthusiasts around the globe adored the Nord C1 for its spot-on tonewheel, Vox, and Farfisa digital models — all packed into a surprisingly lightweight keyboard instrument. And the 61-key Nord C2 is set to carry on that tradition. Inside the Nord C2, you'll find the same three organ models that brought the C1 all of its acclaim — the tonewheel organ, Vox, and Farfisa models. More than that, though, Nord added a stunning baroque pipe organ, so the C2 is more versatile than ever before.
Adds a beautiful baroque pipe organ sound
Nord gave the C2 a baroque pipe organ sound, making it a versatile instrument for rock organ players, but also a great choice for churches, concert and congregation halls, and beyond. The C2's pipe organ has a total of 21 stops, distributed across the Swell (9 stops) manual, the Great (9 stops) manual, and the bass section (3 stops). Contrary to the Nord C2's tonewheel organ, Farfisa, and Vox models, the pipe organ is sampled, using Nord's leading sampling technologies for real-to-life sound.
Keyboard gives you the rock-solid feel of an original tonewheel organ
To make the Nord C2 better than ever before, Nord enhanced its waterfall keyboard action, making it slightly firmer. The end result is the rock-solid feel of an original tonewheel organ — loaded with the ultra-fast response time you expect from your Nord organ.
Flexible routing capabilities for your many sounds
Nord went ahead and improved the C2's output routing capabilities, so it's easy for you to get the sounds where you need them. The main left and right outputs are one group, separated from the Leslie 11-pin and High Level outputs. This makes it easy to route your tonewheel organ, for example, always to a rotary speaker on the 11-pin or High Level jack output. At the same time, you can route the pipe organ to the PA through the main output. Another option would be to have the transistor organs routed to a combo amplifier via one of the main outputs, and the tonewheel organ routed to a rotary speaker connected at one of the High Level outputs.
Built-in effects to refine your sound
To really custom-tailor your sounds, Nord gave the C2 their best tube-style overdrive, rotating-speaker simulation, delay, reverb, and 3-band EQ effects.
Handy monitor input for playing along with an MP3 player
Just plug in your MP3 or CD player to the C2 to be able to play along, rehearse, or jam with previously recorded music without the need of an external mixer or sound system. You can hear whatever you have connected to this input, right through the C2's headphone output.

Better Than the Real Thing
by Seth from COI've had my Nord C2 for a little less than a year having first owned its predecessor, the C1. Using my C2 at the gig with a real Leslie is, in my opinion, better than the real thing. I was playing a g... read more [+]ig last night and two people came up to me and wanted to see my B-3. When I told them the C2 organ only weighs 33 lbs. they couldn't believe it. The action on the C2 is superb as are the controls. For me, the draw buttons have never been an issue and are take almost no getting used to. Also, there are presets galore which most pro organists play off of and have always used even on the real organs.

I've recently acquired a new tone wheel organ clone (single manual) by another extremely well-know company. While it's good, the Nord C2 is better and features two manuals. I just don't think you can beat it. Plus, Clavia significantly improved the C2 over the Nord C1. There's more articulation and volume if you want it for left-hand bass and the sound of the tone wheels is improved too. I recommend it hands down. Another tremendous professional keyboard instrument from Nord. close [-]
I spent some time playing the Nord C2 at Summer NAMM, and was amazed at the tone, feel, and playability that Nord has achieved with this organ. In a world full of keyboards, Nord truly makes instruments. Expect to be seeing the Nord C2 on concert stages around the world. It is a sure to be the weapon of choice for those seeking a world-class dual manual organ.
