From Our Research Team:
The Updated Nord Lead - Rack!Clavia has redesigned the Nord Lead 2 with state-of-the-art hardware and more memory and created the Nord Lead 2X. They didn't change the concept - or the sound, for that matter. They just put in new hardware to make it possible for this great synth to live on for many more years to come.
The Nord Lead 2X has the same powerful sound engine and specifications as the Nord Lead 2, except for the new internal memory that holds a huge amount of factory sounds and a lot of space for your own sounds. Thanks to the large internal memory, there is no longer any need for additional PCMCIA cards. The Nord Lead 2X comes with 3 x 99 user Programs, 100 user Performances and 3 x 10 user Percussion Kits plus 7 x 99 factory Programs, 3 x 100 factory Performances and 7 x 10 factory Percussion Kits. The Nord Lead 2X is 100% patch compatible with the Nord Lead 2 which means that you can transfer sounds between the models via MIDI.

Really Nice Unit
by wigman from West Milford NJI just purchased this unit and have only begun to scratch the surface but already I know it will be a main board with in my rig. I have a Micron as well as an SH32 and although good boards I beleive t... read more [+]he Nord will prevail as the leader (no pun intended)and my main analog type sound engine. Anyway, I already love it and it looks awsome as well. close [-]

Not only is the Nord Lead 2X a great keyboard for live performance, it's also an amazing tool for sound design and scoring. This synth can get pretty extreme, so don't expect to be scoring the next Mel Gibson drama (unless it's an alien horror movie filled with psycho-drama and suspense!). But if you're looking for a versatile instrument suitable for multiple genres of electronic - or a synth capable of creating a never-heard-before soundset - the Nord Lead 2X is the board that will take you to the next level in your synth endeavors.

This is not one o... read more [+]f those pieces.After turning it on for the first time i spent 10 minutes just tweaking the first factory preset.I ran through briefly the other few hundred
presets tweaking then resaving on the fly it was that easy.
I have not opened the manual yet and may never.
The keys feel great and the wood heavy duty springloaded pitch stick is great not to mention the pumice modwheel so your sweaty finger wont slip.
It is a board that you may never give up, i have a few classic pieces like that that i pray will never die.
