Nord Stage 2 76 Reviews5.0/5.0 based on 1 customer review
The Nord Stage 2 is quite possibly the BEST keyboard I've ever played. The first time I booted it up, I spent 20 minutes playing the default Bosendorfer Imperial Grand. I was so absorbed that I had to remind myself that it came with more than just one sound. In my opinion, Nord's latest C2 engine also makes the Stage 2's tonewheel emulation unrivaled. When I needed to replace the centerpiece of my rig, I was deciding between this and another flagship keyboard. I decided on the Nord because this keyboard is timeless. You will develop an emotional attachment and never want to part with it. Nord is always adding high quality authentic and meticulously sampled instruments to their online sample library (which are free to the end user). Also delightful is the fact that I can cherry-pick through the Nord sample library and load up only those sounds which are beneficial to the style of music that I play.

Shorter only in lengthThis is the forth Nord product I own. The 2 76 is added to the Stage 2 88, and the Nord C2D, the Nord Wave. There's something about the sound of Nord's keyboards the warm your heart up. On top of that they are so easy to use, and so powerful you think there can't be this much power in something so compact. Not only the size and power but the build quality is very nice. Truly one of the big surprises I've had the pleasure of enjoying in many years.
