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 Compact performance keyboard, and you're sure to agree that this is the most amazing Nord creation yet. The Stage 2 Compact 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 semi-weighted, waterfall-style keybed, you'll have no doubt that this keyboard was made for the live stage.
Part of what sets the Stage 2 Compact 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 Compact 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 Compact also features 380MB of onboard sample memory, adding endless depth to its synth sound section. On top of all of this, the Stage 2 Compact 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 Compact.

by Mark from Washington, DCIn 30 years of playing keyboards live, I've been searching for one keyboard that can do it all - GIve me realistic acoustic and electric piano, lush strings and pads, wild textures, lead-line sounds t... read more [+]hat can cut through the noise and killer B-3 with drawbar controls. The Nord Stage 2 is what I have been waiting for. I bought it for the sounds but have discovered how easy it is to program layers, splits and and modify the sound on the fly. I'm no longer the the last man standing at the end of a gig - and I can pack my equipment into a car. I've owned Farfisa, Wurlitzer, Yamaha, Akai, Alesis, Sequential Circuits, Roland, Ensoniq, Elka, Hammond and more. The Nord Stage 2 is light weight and the ability to upload samples keeps it sounding fresh. This is the only one I take now. close [-]

Using the editor, i've been able to drop my own instrument samples, and various one-shots for shows. The B3 engine is remarkable improved, and it kept all the great features of the older Nord Stages/Electros. i prefer the 73 compact for the weight and silky synth/B3 waterfall key action. Like all Nords, it has a few quirky limitations (limited layer splitting & stacking), but it's still my go-to for most gigs for it's immediacy. close [-]

Nord Stage 2 Compact
by DJ from CaliforniaI am totally impressed with my NS2 Compact. Last Thursday night and Friday morning I spent 8 hours programming all the keyboard setups for my classic rock band, and discovered that the instrument is v... read more [+]ery easy to use. I love the quick "hit a button" button approach to setting splits and layers and assigning sounds to them. I learned to save all my newly programmed synth sounds into the synth area of memory so I can recall them easy for use in other keyboard layouts. The Slot A/B function essentially gives you two instruments. I usually need more synth tones than piano and organ, so I found that with a little creativity, you can use the morph feature to make two synth sounds from a single slot. I found the Synth section to be much more flexible and powerful than I expected, due to the unison oscillators (thanks forum members for the great answers to my questions on this). The whole design of that section was really well thought out, as the mod envelope, arpeggiator, and LFO really make any kind of sound possible needed for live playing.

I played my first gig last night, and this keyboard just sounds fantastic with the band. I love the global mono feature, and the fact that you can program the control pedal for overall volume so that my overdrive in the organ section can be the same regardless of volume, unlike my Electro 3. The C2 organ seems to have a little more guts to the sound than the NE3 and the drawbar morph is a fantastic feature.g. This is my third Nord product and they really make a well designed, well constructed product. Even the band remarked how beautiful it looked.
Kudos to Clavia on this board. close [-]
