[Musikmesse] The Nord Lead 4 unveiled
The info was only to be released on wednesday, but Clavia spilled its own beans and introduces today the Nord Lead 4, or better said, 2 of them.
The Clavia Nord Lead 4 will be available in two versions, including one with a velocity sensitive 49-key keyboard (C to C).
Both synths are 4-part multi-timbral with 4 separate outputs. They feature subtractive VA synthesis with 2 oscillators, frequency modulation, Hard and Soft-Sync and Unison (up to 4 oscillators per voice), as well as wavetable synthesis with special formant wavetables.
Morphing and 7 assignable variation controls are included, along with 12 and 24 db/octave low-pass, high-pass and band-pass filters, diode and solid state Ladder filter simulations, LFO/Arpeggiator sections, modulation envelope with configurable routing and an effect section with delay, crush, talk, distortion and reverb for each of the 4 slots. The audio engine also includes x2 oversampling.
The Clavia Nord Lead 4 are equipped with USB MIDI ports.
Along with the Nord Lead 4, Clavia will also unveil at Musikmesse the Nord Drum 2 (499€), the update of its drum machine with 6 channels, resonance modulation, FM synthesis, distortion effects and stereo outputs with pan and CC controls ; the Nord Pad (259€), a multi-pad that can be connected to the Nord Drum 2 via Ethernet, and the Nord Piano 2 HP, a 73-key version of the HA88 digital piano, for which dedicated news will be released as soon as all the details are communicated.
