Nord Keyboards are proud to announce our new flagship instrument line: the Nord Stage 2 Series. The Nord Stage 2 represents a stunning new take on the famous Stage series, featuring our latest sound generation technology in each of the Piano, Organ and Synthesizer categories. Inside and out, the Nord Stage 2 represents our current state-of-the-art instrument design for the professional and semi-professional keyboard player.
Representing a stunning new take on the famous Stage series, the Stage 2 is Nord's flagship instrument line. Utilizing their very latest sound generation technology in the three categories of Piano, Organ and Synthesizer combined with a thoroughly thought-out user interface, a choice of top-flight keybeds and an almost obsessive level of quality control, the Stage 2 truly sets itself apart as an instrument for the professional performing musician.
The inclusion of Nord Sample Library compatibility and Nord Sample Editor software that allows creation of user-generated samples, the Stage 2 offers a whole new creative palette. Combined with Nord Piano Library compatibility too, the Stage 2 is an instrument that offers huge expandability, now and in the future.
Choose from three models; 88, 76 or Compact. The 88 and 76 both feature weighted hammer-action keyboards while the Compact is equipped with a semi-weighted organ (waterfall profile) keyboard. Apart from the keyboard type and the number of accessories available, all three models share the same set of features. The Stage 2 is designed with three sound generating sections; Piano, Organ and Synthesizer. Up to two sounds from each section can be combined in a single patch for massive sonic flexibility.
Experience The Power of The Nord Piano In Your Nord Stage
The Stage 2 features a new Piano section derived from the multi-award winning Nord Piano. Featuring state-of-the-art sampling techniques the Stage 2ís pianos capture the extraordinary nuances and real character of the individual source instruments. Combined with intelligent string resonance functionality that reproduces with unnerving accuracy the interactive nature of piano strings, and compatibility with the optional Nord Triple Pedal that actually introduces dynamic pedal noise from the player, the result is breathtaking realism and the opportunity for extraordinary expressiveness.
State-of-the art sample-based Acoustic Pianos
Advanced Vintage Electric Pianos
Selectable Piano Release
Dynamic Pedal Noise via optional Nord Triple Pedal
Nord Piano Library compatible
The Selectable Piano Release function is an all new feature in the Stage 2. When the Release function is activated this offers a slightly longer release more suitable for legato playing. This important feature reflects adjusting the damper tension in an acoustic or an electromechanical instrument. Alongside real acoustic Grand and Upright pianos, the Piano section also features some of the finest, most desirable vintage electric pianos.
The Stage 2ís piano sounds are future-proof thanks to its compatibility with the Nord Piano Library. This free online library is regularly updated with upgraded existing pianos and all-new pianos to keep your instrument constantly renewed.
Thid Generation Organ Modelling From Nord
Itís over ten years since we made our first digital model of a tonewheel organ. The Stage 2ís dedicated organ section now uses our third generation B3 Organ model as found in the acclaimed Nord C2. Considered by many the most accurate emulation of the B3 ever, the Stage 2ís organ model is based on the analysis of the signals from each of the 91 spinning discs inside several original instruments and painstaking work on understanding exactly how all the components interact with each other. The virtual circuitry reacts not only to the settings on the panel but also during the real time performance. The Stage 2 will faithfully reproduce the important foldback and energy robbing characteristics; the latter will produce the gentle compression effect that makes those lovely smears absolutely wonderful. There are 4 tonewheel modes that allows you to switch from a clean, factory specíd instrument to a worn and battered workhorse with some 40 years worth of touring.
Latest generation Nord B3 Organ modeling
Faithful emulations of classic Vox and Farfisa organs
Advanced rotary speaker model with slow, fast and stop modes
"Draw buttons" and LED bar graphs allow recallable drawbar settings
We also created carefully modeled emulations of two of the most famous transistor organs from the 1960ís, the Vox Continental and the Farfisa Compact. Alongside the organís themselves, the Stage 2 features our very latest rotary speaker simulation derived from the C2. Incorporating the acoustic variations that occur as a physical rotating spreads the sound around in a room, they bring the Stage 2ís organs to life with remarkable realism. In terms of control, ďDraw buttonsĒ and LED bar graphs have replaced the original mechanical drawbars. This gives you the advantage of always having the correct drawbar settings after changing preset. For Organ sounds only, the Stage 2ís keybed is programmed to respond at its highest trigger position, resulting in authentic feel and allowing lightning fast organ techniques.
Thid Generation Organ Modelling From Nord
The Stage 2ís powerful new Synthesizer engine was built from the DNA of the Nord Wave. Capable of classic analogue synthesis, three-operator FM synthesis, Wavetable synthesis and, crucially, compatibility with the Nord Sample Library.
The Nord Sample Library not only give Stage 2 owners access to the huge free library of world-class sounds, including the famous vintage Mellotron and Chamberlin samples previously only available to Nord Wave and Nord Electro 3 users, but thanks to the included Nord Sample Editor for Mac and PC, allows user-created samples to be loaded into the instrument and thus opening up a whole new creative world of sound.
The Synth engine itself features classic analogue synthesis with dual saw, hard sync and pulse wave modulation, three-operator FM synthesis with 32 different modulation frequencies, Wavetable synthesis with 77 waveforms and Sample based synthesis. A new great-sounding multimode filter features 12 and 24dB Low Pass, High Pass, band Pass and Notch filters. And with an Amp envelope, Modulation envelope, an LFO, and Unison control, the Stage 2ís synth capabilities are hugely powerful, delivering amazing on-stage sound.The Synth section also features a new Arpeggiator that can be syncíed to the Stage 2ís Master Clock for perfect timing with all elements of the Stage 2 including its effects.
