Clavia Nord Lead 3
4 octave keyboard 100% synthetic and it is what is asked. Bike and aftertouch. Pitch bend wood without notch at the point 0, and gives a funny effect if you give a pichnette (it continued to vibrate a few seconds and cre ca an odd effect in the sound).
All knob send messages noon (donation also used to control other modules or virtual hard). splitable in zones 2, 4 sounds both combined (but still rpart max on 2 zones).

UTILIZATION

Grip super easy, everyone is wearing hand (or rather a button). And if we control the evil principle of synthesis, it will always be easier to discovering with buttons by direct sub menus endless.

Everything is quite logical, I opened the doc is only 2 or 3 times to points dtail.
The manual is very well done.

SOUNDS

Obviously synthetic sounds. The main synth on my taste, it is not sound, but what we did. Use the original post sounds without ever using the knobs would be for me a hrsie. Some sounds of the original trs well, others ncessitent to be crushed, but what is working on a synth pnible menus, becomes much more fun with knobs (and fast). I have in any case many AIM sounds and what is in fact, their expression, just crativit itself against this product. Gnralement I "work" on my synth on it but I have been the lead play hours for fun, like my first synth c'tait!

Note that there is good sensitivity of aftertouch (on some keyboards, you must crush all his strength for dclencher, and other is on / off with nothing between the two).

It lacks a small effect section, just to do some pretty (al of a sudden I NanoVerb a little above).

OVERALL OPINION

I've had 2 1 / 2 years and just put it on sale (since acquired a Clavia Nord Stage 88 and need money to a). I also had a rack ACCESS Virus B: DIFFERENT sosna are very much less neutral, more fat and grimey (but I have rightly) - The two are complmentaires my taste.

I love this synth and I do not sell if I could afford to start a collection!

Just to correct slight: the rack version also allows to assign all the knobs morph wheel;)

Clavia Nord Lead 3
Synth modulation / analog modeling, call it whatever you want you have to turn the button to edit your sounds.
4 separate output, so four synths in one, any parameter, that is to say that you decide whether a particular synth out mono or stereo, on a given output.
Midi absolutely total, A Z, everything is parametrabl and recordable. Amazing!
8 bank of 127 sounds about 1000 is not far from the sounds if you add your. It's party time!
I do not use with computer (the computer has no place in my studio, I use only hardware you) but you can retrieve at the site of a multitude of sounds clavia Free + Most recent internship OS.
Polyphony exellente say anything, it's not a 2000 or a Juno106 MS (I worship)

UTILIZATION

In a rare simplicity in menus (no million sub-menu with BBREVIATIONS gives bad head). The control panel with the knobs are very simple, everything is very clear, not a search as "Andromeda" Alesis o diploma must have a driver to navigate the air .....
Modulated sounds is a breeze and the possibilities are endless.
The manual .... I have had recourse I have to admit for some stupid detail, as synchroniqer the LFO to the tempo, for example (shift + knob turn the LFO to the right!) nothing too bad in the end.

SOUNDS

Making the house-electro-techno, and even more musical stuff very funky, sounds are impeccable ', all fawn over the same sounds are editable and become moldy quickly you! For me the factory sounds that sounds serious I do not touch it, and those who are really unusable as is, I twist in all directions
Not really realistic sounds, a keyboard is not a lover of classical piano ... Rather place the sounds spacial, funky bass, cold ground (yes the heat is not its special sound unfortunately)
I have the prefried are low I Will of module-based oscillator and LFO + glide & Company, a real treat, I hate those, sounds that are nothing at all like the cheap pianos arpeggiator or ready made but no one (you do the same you, it's crazy the arpeggiator, all programmable 100%)

OVERALL OPINION

I use it since 2002, it is for me the most efficient synthesis of march I tried over 15 MODELS, and really it is for me the brain of my prods.
Being able to assign all knobs the knob is really a quality clean and beautiful (not on the rack version!)
His big flaw is the lack of heat sounds ... has a juno 106, the difference is obvious.
Ok it's not given count nine euros in 1900-2000, but that for that price you have 4 in a stereo synth .... and yes!
I'm so AIM this synth that I bought two, for good I separated a aquérir for something else, but without hesitation I direct remake that choice! Besides, I do not sell

Clavia Nord Lead 3
A intgrale killing. It lacks the vocoder among fawn.

USE

Then the computer becomes a real instrument in the physical sense. We rarely made analog synthesis as accessible.

SONORITS

Go listen to you and train station.

Clavia Nord Lead 3
VA synthesizer, touch sensitive keys 48 and after touch,
pitch stick (very practical) + modulation wheel assignable to any parameter in the facade (morph group)
4 output audio jack, no audio inputs
2 pedal inputs (sustain and expression)
analog modeling synthesis, subtractive synthesis and FM simplified, no effect
20 voice polyphony
4-way multitimbral.

UTILIZATION

Editing is very simple, a model of its kind. All parameters are displayed on the facade. A button = one function.
Rotary potentiometers his endless, and led a series of shows around its position, far dêtre a gadget, you see the exact configuration of the sound even when you change patches. Display values ​​in real units on the screen (eg in Hz for a filter, an envelope in ms).

The manual is very clear (and almost useless except for a little more complex functions such as setting noon, output assignment, ...), only downside, I did not manage to get it in French, so must have a minimum knowledge of English.

SOUNDS

Great sound, well brilliant. perfect for the lead, tablecloths, ... against by a little less good for bass.
The parameter provides detune sounds very large and very fat.
The synthesis is quite complete, many things are possible, including some FM (up to 4 operators).
The filters are sufficiently numerous and really very good.
For the rest: 2 LFO modulation matrix, 2 + 1 envelopes Envelope / LFO modulation matrix ...

An interesting feature of Nord Lead is the 4 morph groups, which allow one to support her. Each morph group is not assigned several variations of parameters, which are modified according to the type of morph group (velocity, tone, aftertouch, mod wheel). This provides sound expressively rich enough.

the -

No audio input.
No effect (but it happens).
It is quite difficult to ring in the synth bass, and it takes a little work for bass sounds.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a year. I said that it was my first real synthesizer.
I love the sound of this synth, very clear and soft, but can be either dirty or aggressive.
One of the great strengths is probably its interface (may be the best?), One can spend hours fiddling a sound, there's no fetching in menus, submenus ...

It may be a bit expensive, but I do not regret at all, I would do this choice without hesitation.
