Nord Electro 4 HP 73-key Hammer-action Keyboard at a Glance:
Nord has beefed up the red beast
Head-to-head with its predecessor, the Nord Electro 4 HP sports a number of hot new features, including Nord C2D B3 tone wheel simulation, improved key click and percussion, two stunning new simulations of a vintage 122 cabinet, larger onboard Nord Sample Library memory (380 MB), MIDI over USB, and enhanced Sound Manager functionality.
Organic "analog" warmth
If you've ever heard keyboard whiz Derek Sherinian shred with Dream Theater, Billy Idol, or his own band Planet X, you know he's a tone meister of the highest order. Ask Mr. Sherinian what he loves about the Nord Electros, and he'll tell you it's the "organic analog warmth." Well, that and the tour-proof build quality, the ease of calling up sounds, and much more. With the Nord Electro 4 HP, you get the warmth of analog with the road-tested reliability of a forth-gen digital machine.

Nord Electro 4 HP
by Steve McAndrew from Santa Cruz, CaliforniaWhat an incredible keyboard. Have never found an instrument of this size and weight that packs the sound and versatility of the Electro 4. Action is nothing short of excellent, keyboard and organ so... read more [+]unds are superb, and the ease and ability to load sounds from other sources great.

My take on Nord's Electro 4 HP
by Christopher Jansen from Boise, ID USAMy trusted Korg Triton Pro (having endured countless gigs) has been relegated to studio use, which in turn, created a vacancy in my performance keyboard setup. While the Kronos was tempting, my imme... read more [+]diate performance needs hinged on a reliable, yet fantastic sounding keyboard that would deliver on piano & organ sounds. The Nord Electro 4 HP delivers on all fronts, and then some! If you are looking for additional layering, multi-zone splits, etc., you'll need to invest more money into Nord's Stage 2. I can accomplish great layering via the Electro 4's USB connection to my Macbook Pro where Spectrasonic's Omnisphere resides. There is absolutely no lack of layering and sounds when combining the Electro to other sound sources. Back to the Electro 4 HP: The hammer action is "perfect!" The piano sounds are perfect, clear and expressive. The electric piano sounds: they nailed them, as well as virtually every other (clave, etc.) sounds. The organ (B3) sounds are the best I've ever played. Make no mistake: This is a keyboardist's dream performance rig. The onboard effects are excellent. Nord's online Sound Library is free to the user. So, if you feel they charge too much for their keyboards, consider you are buying into a supportive world of technology and ongoing refinements with more sounds than you could know what to do with. This keyboard has the most organic feel I've run across, thus far - not to mention the most organic sounds I've conjured out of a keyboard. The B3 will blow you away! As always, my Sweetwater Representative, Mike Arrango needs to be recognized for his knowledgeable and timely service - he's always there for me. Nord & Sweetwater - you guys rule! close [-]

Most Portable and Best Sounds Available...
by Bill Howard from Waco, TexasI'm the old dude who still loves to gig but got tired of dragging around a "hernia-in-a-box", namely my older Nord Stage 88 with a heavy duty case. I debated for quite some time between the 4HP and th... read more [+]e Piano2, leaning towards the Piano2 because of its weighted keybed. However, after taking the plunge on the 4HP I couldn't be more pleased! The action isn't "wooden-weighted" but after twenty minutes on my first gig with the 4HP I felt very comfortable - by the end of the night I found myself playing more dynamically than I would have thought possible! The sounds are SO superior to my older Nord that my bass player kept wondering what I was doing differently (didn't bother to tell him I was using a new axe until after the first few tunes!) and that was with stock factory patches. My game plan is to tweak the memory using the incredible patches available through the Nord sample DVD's included with the axe, so in the end I might only have 20-30 patches onboard instead of 128, but I prefer a smaller number of higher quality sounds for use on the gigs. Yes, folks, the acoustic pianos are mind-blowing, the updated organ will rock your socks, and how cool is it to have access to all those old Mellotron sounds (and that's just for starters!). But the ultimate compliment for me on this keyboard is the weight - never did I imagine being able to lift my primary keyboard under one arm for the easiest load-in and load-out possible while having those killer patches! Personally I would have preferred the use of patch names as opposed to the two digit number system (so very 1994, you know) but that issue will be moot after I get my preferred patches set up. Nord scores a home run with this keyboard, and so does Chris Lewis for his advice and patience with my incessant yammering! close [-]
