Clavia Nord Modular
2 or 3 octaves, but precise touch plastic keyboard
Sounds infinite, all styles and editable wish provided they use the PC
All controllers are assignable which is really nice in play
Multiple Jack in & out will blend effortlessly
Total polyphony


Once we got into the habit of using the PC edition is very fast
The manual helps a lot especially if one "s butts with analog


Digital sound approaching the maximum analog digital while remaining basically it is more manageable, including MIDI, but the analog does not sound like
Personally I ignore the most popular groundwater scalable as the North allowed me to


To start in analog or copy on stage (no problem tuning or surprises noon with the North) North is recommended, it can sift through all the filters and analog patching possibilities made without paying the a modular, which can be prepared inexpensively

Most: the color, the HS miniferrari

Clavia Nord Modular
Synthtiseur modlisation analog modular
patchable through software (Mac / PC)
programmable mode.
April 16 voice polyphony 4 shares multitimbral (4 slots).
2 octave keyboard 18 potentiomtre assignable.
4 analog outputs, 2 analog inputs (18 bit converters) 1 between pedals expression 1 1 MIDI OUT MIDI IN, OUT 1PC IN 1 PC.
Keyboard a bit cheap, no pitchbend or modulation wheel ...
This is surely a handicap which will require the selection of the expander number of users,
for me too I mainly use the knobs (good quality and to modulate the keyboard to the dclencher vnements.


Installing the software is simple and hassle free on my PC (Pentium 200 - 64MB)
Has the dtection problmatique and unstable with certain interfaces (MIDI PC FLYER)
It does however instantly with the MIDI port of my Turtle Beach Tropez.
The use of soft do me any possible problem (J'tais just introduced to the analog modular system)
The Manual is not trspdagogique trs decription. I could never obtenier the French version for Systm 3.


The convertos do not seem dgueux, although I finally little exprience to judge
Gnral sound is good although a little surgical, when it seems to me to have the same personality (Clavia what)
presets are blah and especially do refltent absolutely not the power of the System.


It's simple, it is the heart of my System. This machine is simply ds dmoniaque it's not to like everyone else: This is Intrets of modular, since it can easily s'chapper trs known structures (filter-amplifier oscilloscope's + ca & lfo's) But this makes it challenging trs. It takes a lot of work and express rflexion for her what you want. This Representative for me Intrets major modular which can be viewed as a standalone machine (+ effects & mixer). It is prprogramme with the computer home and it takes a minimum scne. Whereas therefore outside the purely aural (sound of the machine can not appeal) is an excellent machine make sounds, as long as we want to bother.

Suggestions: Use to treat the entries of the sampler loops, patches CRER gnratifs ...

There's something to spend a few sleepless nights.

Clavia Nord Modular
Calvia The Nord Modular is a modular synth on the same principle as the old patch analog synth o is plugged full of self-same cables between the oscillators, effects, LFO, VCA ...
Here is the same principle except that the patches are done on computer and take care on the South by Syth.
It possde 2 octaves (MODEL synth), and 18 potentiomtres rotating super quality. There is no pitch wheel and modulation (dommage. ..) but just a push button to move up and down the octaves.
It possde2 audio inputs (line level), which is handy because it allows the use of effects real time. It possde 4 outputs, one connected to a sustain pedals (all this basically jack). It also has an in / out and midi in / out to the computer for shipping (no thru ...).
It runs on 4 Intgr DSP processor (to the DDIS)
Polyphony is limited by the power of DSP based on the used patch. Plus it is more complicated polyphony will be restricted.


Edition of the software is relatively easy to use but all the same quite complete. One would expect this software amliorations from Calvia, but since the release of G2, they gave up.
It can work trs prcis sound and can fully Defines the architecture of the synth. The modules provided range from simple oscillator bank sinus through the parliaments of all simple logic (comparator threshold ...). It is much less sr dvelopp that software such as Max MSP but hey, we can not have everything ...

Small default point: there is a lgre mute when switching to another sound. The same applies if you want to add a deuxime's Premire a tablecloth, there is a small interruption of her ...


The sound of this synth are just great.
The bass is not punchy trs but they are nice and warm. The highs are an incredible precision. This synth does not really sound the call practitioner. It offers several tt ^ a search on the Contents is sound and is the height in terms of quality and precision.
The expression of the keys is satisfying and trs gnral particulirement the rotary pots are really great agrble use.


I use it now for 2 years and I have yet t dcu. For those seeking a little fiddling in the same structure, which looks a little forcment not produce sound format corresponding architecture synth dj program and can not be changed. Its capabilities are really the most thunderous and the height.
I note however that there is m ^ me quickly Llima by the DSP that saturate quickly, especially as we seek the polyphony (2 voice polyphony ncessitent 2 times more power DSP only).
