Fully Loaded Nord Piano!Big, red, and absolutely amazing - it's hard not to love Nord keyboards and pianos. Take one listen to the Nord's incredible new flagship Stage 2 88 performance keyboard, and you're sure to agree that this is the most amazing Nord creation yet. The Stage 2 88 puts the performance-oriented sounds and flexibility at your fingertips that any pro keyboardist is absolutely certain to love. And when you feel the texture and response of the new custom-designed keybed, you'll have no doubt that this keyboard was made for the live stage.
Part of what sets the Stage 2 88 apart from typical performance-oriented keyboards is the impeccable attention to detail in its extensive collection of sounds. Armed with twice the program memory of its predecessor, the widely popular Stage EX, the Stage 2 88 has the bandwidth to include subtitles such as key-release samples and dynamic pedal noise. Likewise, the new Gen 3 organ is simply astonishing! The Stage 2 88 also features 380MB of onboard sample memory, adding endless depth to its synth sound section. On top of all of this, the Stage 2 88 features an even more extensive effects section than ever before. If you're looking for the ultimate live keyboard, you're going to love the Nord Stage 2 88.

My Ripe Red Beauty
by from OK, United StatesYES. I finally got this a couple months ago and I just never could have enough time in the world to play on it. It feels so good on my fingers, every little nob on this is just put together so well. I... read more [+] truly believe this was the work of God. One thing I must say is say is that I would like Nord to come out with more pad sounds. I am currently saving up to get a macbookpro because i need it for school anyways but I am also wanting to get Omnisphere, only then will I be unstoppable. This keyboard is worth the buy, it is a lot of money I know, but boy is it worth it. close [-]

Great gigging keyboard
by Jeff Tilden from Bettendorf, IAMy main reason for having a keyboard is acoustic piano and B3 organ. Over the past 12 years I have owned a couple of workstation type keyboards hoping the soundset matched the "top of the line" produ... read more [+]ct offering. These boards were good with solid organs, but acoustic piano was always overprocessed and did not sound that good under real life mono PA applications. Nearly everything sounds great in stereo with headphones on in the showroom! The Nord Stage 2 is the best I have heard yet for all around acoustic piano sounds short of a software only instrument (equals the Yamaha CP300 but about 20+ pounds lighter). Most impressive is the ease of programming since there really is no deep menu to wade thru. Want to create a layer? A couple clicks and you have it. Want to modify the filters on the string within the layer? Just grab the knob and go for it. Want to map the mod wheel to a parameter? Takes about 5 seconds. The key action is great for both organ and piano. If you need every sound under the sun, this isn't your rig. If you want top notch pianos, organs and synth sounds with lightweight portability - take a hard look. Put the the keys to the test by playing though a mono PA rig and listenging for alising and looping - you won't find any. Did I mentiond this is with the effects off? Try that on some competitors product. close [-]

The NORD Stage 2 is worth it
by Sorcerer from Cupertino, CA USAAll I need are the piano sounds, perfect piano, and a good action. Well the pianos are not perfect, but pretty close! Because of the effects section, you can do more than a real piano can do.

With unlimited potentials of clean rich sound in an accessible portable package the Stage 2 is worthy of praise. close [-]
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.
