The Clavia Nord Electro 73 is a general synthesizer, with specific sections for organ and piano. Like the name states, it has 73 keys and in addition to the organ and piano sections, it has a section for effects and general parameters. It doesn't have pitch or modulation wheels, but since it has only piano and organ sounds, you don't really need them, although they would be nice to have. The Clavia Nord Electro 73 has full polyphony and you can get a ton of different organ and piano sounds.

UTILIZATION

The configuration and interface of the Nord Electro 73 is pretty straightforward, although there are a lot of parameters that one must get used to when using it. For the organ section, it has a digital representation of draw bars, as well as options for vibrato and percussion. The piano and effects sections have a good deal of control, and since there are a ton of parameters, it takes a bit of practice to see exactly what everything does, but this shouldn't take too long as the keyboard is easy follow. The manual is pretty thorough and is helpful to have around while you are learning this versatile instrument.

SOUNDS

The sound quality of the Clavia Nord Electro 73 is top notch all across the board. I love both the organ and piano sounds you can get, which are both quite versatile on their own, and especially so when you introduce the effects section to them. Both the organ and piano tones are extremely realistic, and is great for both live shows and recording.

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using the Clavia Nord Electro 73 for around three years, mostly for use in the recording studio. While the price of this isn't cheap, it is designed for professionals looking to get both great piano and organ sounds within a single keyboard. I can't say enough about how realistic the sound are from this keyboard and I would recommend it to anyone serious about getting great piano and organ sounds all within one unit. Overall, this is one my favorite digital keyboards on the market and I highly recommend it to all professional keyboardists.
