Direct from Sweden, the Nord Electro 3 HP is the world’s first Nord Electro with hammer action. The keyboard features a 73-key keybed, yet weighs in at just over 24 pounds. All of the features of the original Nord Electro 3 are included, such as compatibility with Nord Piano and Nord Sample libraries with exclusively licensed Mellotron and Chamberlin sound, and the tonewheel and transistor modeling of the Nord C1 organ and rotary speaker emulation. Four dynamic curves allow custom tailoring of the keyboard’s response, while Long Release adds great feel when playing legato parts. A new Delay effect with tap tempo and stereo ping-pong mode is new, along with four Live Locations (up from one in previous Electros), and easier program access.
