What we say:

Nord’s extremely popular Electro range enjoys a brand new iteration with the Electro 6. Each previous Electro instalment has been well received, bringing with it sensible player-friendly upgrades. So what do we get in this new, fresh v6 model?

To begin with, the Organ section has a new pipe organ model (so there are two now) and you can now utilise two organ models at once.

The Sample section has been given an expanded memory (512MB) and the polyphony has been increased too. This is true of the Piano section too, which now also has 1GB for memory. The pianos have never sounded better!

Generally, there are improvements that apply across the board: you can now stack 3 sounds together instead of the previous 2; you now have Seamless Transitions between patches so you will no longer have to suffer nasty and abrupt silences as you switch sounds; and there is an Organise Mode now for reorganising the location of sounds and page to improve your workflow and enjoyment.

In the organ section, you can enjoy Nord’s painstakingly accurate renditions of famous vintage models like the Hammond B3, Vox Continental and Farfisa as well as those two pipe organs. A vintage Rotary Speaker simulator rounds out the organ section perfectly.

The Piano section contains some incredible models of various pianos from around the world with control over the release, dynamic curve and filter. You can also of course sub out sounds and replace them via the Nord Sample Library website!

This is true of the synth section too: there are a great bank of presets to work with but these can also be subbed out in favour of sounds from the sample library.

This model has a 6 octave keybed with beautiful hammer action keys that feel great to the touch. Piano feel takes precedent here, of course but organ tricks are easy to pull off too.

The quality of sounds is as strong and detailed as we’ve come to expect from Nord. These new features are well thought out and very welcome: all players who use keys can make great use of the new Nord Electro 6 HP!

It features 6 Split Points and the new Split Point Crossfade functionality introduced with the Stage 3 for smooth transitions between two split zones. Choose from 3 different crossfade widths (Small, Large or Off) as indicated by different LED colors.

Refined Program Section 

The new streamlined Program section features a handy Organize mode including Copy/Paste and Move functionality for quickly arranging your Programs to your desired order. A new Page View lets you easily sort and organize pages as a song list. 

All Programs, Pianos and Synth Samples are easily navigated using the new List View that offers alphabetical, numerical and category sorting options. 

ORGAN SECTION

The Nord Electro 6 features our award-winning Nord C2D Organ simulations of B3 Tonewheel, B3 Bass and Vintage Transistor Organs plus two Pipe Organ models. 

B3 Tonewheel simulation

The Organ section features our acclaimed Nord C2D Organ engine including the extremely authentic B3 Tonewheel simulation with four different tone wheel settings, ranging from factory new clean to leaky old vintage.  

An improved dedicated Bass mode simulating the Pedal Bass Tonewheels are available for either splitting with a Piano or Synth or with a B3 Upper Manual in Dual Organ Mode.

Classic Transistor Organs

Our impeccable simulations of the classic 1960’s Transistor Organs, Vox Continental and Farfisa Compact with all the classic settings, are also included in the Organ section.

Pipe Organs 

The Organ section now contains two different Pipe Organ models. The new Pipe 1 is a pure Organ with few harmonics. The Pipe 2, introduced with the Electro 5, is a recreation of metal pipes that commonly make up the backbone of a pipe or church organ, and now includes a special new detune mode when enabling Vibrato/Chorus.

Vintage Rotary Speaker

The Nord Electro 6 has the latest generation of our vintage 122 Rotary Speaker simulation adding an essential character to a live organ performance and features Slow, Fast and Stop mode as well as a Drive control.

Dual Organ Mode

The dedicated new Dual Organ mode provides quick access to dual manual setups and offers great overview and control of the drawbar settings for both the Lower and Upper manual.

PIANO SECTION

The Piano section has a wide selection of acoustic, electric and digital pianos from the exclusive Nord Piano Library, extended voice polyphony and creative new Piano Filters. 

Factory Bank

The Nord Electro 6 factory bank contains an extensive selection of our latest Grands, Uprights, Electric Pianos and Digital Pianos from the exclusive Nord Piano Library - all handpicked for their unique characters! The Piano section also features our new “Layer” category with rich dynamic layered patches.

The Nord Piano Experience

Nord’s state-of-the-art sampling techniques capture the extraordinary nuances and real character of the source instruments and unique ‘Advanced String Resonance’ delivers breathtaking realism and an unsurpassed level of expressiveness. 

Replaceable sounds

The Factory Bank features a great selection from the Nord Piano Library but you can easily add or replace any of these sounds using the Nord Sound Manager. Our exclusive Nord Piano Library is constantly updated with new exclusive world class sounds, and always free of charge.

Piano Filters

Providing an additional level of sonic control, the Piano Section now features dedicated piano filters for accentuating softness, mid or brilliance. 

Soft Release

A Soft Release-mode adds a slightly longer release, more suitable for legato playing, emulating a looser damper tension in an acoustic or an electromechanical instrument.

Dynamic Curves

4 dynamic curves are available to suit your playing style, from soft to hard.

SAMPLE SYNTH SECTION

The enhanced Sample Synth Section features expanded memory for the Nord Sample Library 3.0 and extended polyphony. 

The Sample Synth Section contains a broad selection of high quality sounds from the Nord Sample Library 3.0 including the exclusively licensed sounds of the legendary Mellotron and Chamberlin.

The Sample Synth is equipped with essential controls for attack, decay/release and dynamics (filter/velocity). A unique Nord feature allows you to create your own samples using the free Nord Sample Editor software for WIndows and Mac.

EFFECT SECTION

The powerful Effect section features a wide range of instantly tweakable high quality effects modelled after classic stomp boxes. All effects are stereo and can be assigned freely to the Organ, Piano or Synth sections.

Effect 1

Here you can choose from Tremolo, two Wahs, an Auto-Wah, and an AutoPan. Use the AutoWah with a Clavinet for raw funk licks, create a psychedelic vibe with an Electric Piano on AutoPan, or give a Wurlitzer some body using the Tremolo. There is also a Ring Modulator on board, an effect used by many experimental and electronic musicians.

Effect 2

The two Phasers, two Choruses, the Flanger and a Vibe effect are modeled from the classic analog stomp boxes that define the sound of popular music. 

Amp Sim/Compressor/Rotary

Features authentic JC, Twin and Small speaker simulations with adjustable Drive, plus a separate Tube Drive simulation and a Compressor.

EQ

A 3-band Equalizer with sweepable mid.

Delay

The Delay effect features a Tap Tempo, Feedback and Mix (Dry/Wet), as well as controls for Ping-Pong mode and Tap Tempo.

Reverb

The Nord Electro 6 has three different Reverb types (Hall, Stage and Room) for adding some ambience to your sounds. All Reverb types also has a Bright mode. 

NORD MUSIC STAND V2

All Nord Electro 6 models can accomodate the new Nord Music Stand V2 - a robust aluminum stand with room for 4 sheets of music.

THE KEYBEDS

Each Fatar keybed is meticulously calibrated at the Nord factory to ensure an even response over the whole range

Hammer Action Portable (HP)

The Nord Electro 6 HP keybed uses amazingly portable weighted hammer action piano keys. Perfect for electric and acoustic piano sounds, but also works great for organ playing. Key range 6 HP: E-E.

CONTROL PEDALS

Control Pedal support has been improved and now supports the following pedals: Fatar, Yamaha FC7, Roland EV-7, Korg EXP2 and Korg XVP10.

The Control Pedal and/or Sustain Pedal can be assigned independently for each section.
