mrjason's review"better sounds than the Electro 2"

Clavia Nord Electro 3 73
The Nord Electro 3-73 has 73 keys, all of the sounds are pretty much piano sounds and organ sounds. It has on board effects but it cost 2200 bucks. That is on the higher end of most home musicians’ budget. I have used many of the synths that Nord makes, this is not the best one but it does have some really clean sounds and sweet effects. Setting up the Electro 3-73 Is not hard but it is not quick. You basically need to tell the Electro 3-73 exactly what types of stuff you are using like pedals and what kind of pedal it is.


I have used the Nord Electro 2 way before I had the Electro 3-73 and the sounds are really the only thing that is better to me. I liked the flow of the Electro 2 a little better than the Electro 3-73.


The organ sounds that this synth keyboard has are the best ones that Nord has ever had on any board they have come out with. These organs can compete with any sounding organ on any keyboard synth that has ever come out. That is how good they are, the downside of that is it lacks in the piano sounds. The piano sounds are useable but they are not as good as they should be considering how much this keyboard cost.


The feel of the keys on the Electro 3-73 have nice expressiveness and feel nice when playing. They have a little bit of weight to them but not too much for you to play your synth or lead lines with. Some people love to use the Electro 3-73 for live performances but I don’t feel like this keyboard is made for live performances because it takes a little time to set it up and get the sound that you want out of it. When I use live gigging keyboards I like to have the sounds right at my finger tips automatically and ready to go.

Doctor John's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excellent keyboard"

Clavia Nord Electro 3 73
Everything has been said.
Keypad 73 keys


The keyboard is very intuitive, the software itself, the use of the manual is almost useless.


What about ...


I use it for 4 months now, I can finally give my opinion.

The +:

- Sounds amazing, to say the least
- Settings for
- Super Reverb, it surprised me a lot
- Accurate touch on the piano despite touching waterfall
- A multitude of samples on the official site, and all quality
- Software included for editing samples and organize sounds
- Weight (9kg!)
- Tone organs excellent

The - (there are few):

The waterfall-touch is still very, very light
-The ridiculous memory, their best piano sample does not fit there. Well it certainly is not for the piano, but quickly finds himself limited and want to test some sounds trigger the obligation to remove some ... And no memory expansion card. Damage.
-The price, but the quality pays.

Previously I had a cdp-200r and korg m50-88. Neither one nor the other arrived at the ankle electro. The one that I was able to compete for his piano sound is a Yamaha CP50. But North offers a variety and sound quality in its polyphony Yamaha has not to my taste.

poor value for money prices, synth quality.

very slightly less than 10 kg - handy for the stage with flexible flight clavia, although this one is probably made in China and is of poor quality.

very easy to use, but good audio quality
classic sounds (pianos, electric pianos, organs)

sample player with some real quality time controls (type reverb, flanger, chorus, wah, volume, pan etc.).
flash memory of 280 MB if I remember correctly (the samples remain in memory)

no pitch bend or modulation

possib. to create their own sounds and samples from a computer tool comes with NE73

Mr Raph's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" The reference"

Clavia Nord Electro 3 73
Keyboard 73 keys semi-weighted waterfall, ideal for the B3, Farfisa and Vox, good for Rhodes, Wurlitzer and Clavinet, on the other hand bad for pianos but that's not why I bought it.

Look fabulous

Level connectivity I regret that if we want out organs and pianos to different outputs are either forced to go in mono, two stereo outputs were independent foot.

The USB port allows only manage sounds, not to register such a shame.


Incredibly simple to use, everything is at hand: whether effects on / off or intensity, equalizer, gain, all settings for organ ... Finally a tool where you spend the most time playing and navigate menus in menus ...
The USB connection is really nice to classify sounds, rename, add, remove from ... It is an instrument "à la carte", personalized, in no time.

Small flat to access the different programs: that the inc / dec and A / B, suddenly it can be time to switch from one program to another, especially live example.


This is a killer ...

The organs are amazingly realistic ... whether B3, Farfisa and Vox. The leslie is great (although the drive get a bit cold when it is pushed but hey this is very widely playable), especially in the stereo headset is bleuffant
I just find it unfortunate that the keyclick that is adjustable in 3 positions (low / normal / high), a little more precision would have been nice.

Rhodes coupled with a twin reverb with a little overdrive and reverb room with 2/3 scary, it is the same with the Wurlitzer.

For the clavinet, which is nice is the 4 types of microphone position and the additional possibility of adjusting the brightness of the sound. We add the effect wha pedal hop and a D6 with a cry baby at the foot ... we broke fast, especially in groups.

Uprights are beautiful, also very realistic.

I do not use the pianos in this queuesur Clavie, by 80 against the CP is also very successful.

For samples, but it helps out good puisque'on can not modulate the sound, it's limited.


What can I say: great sound, great look, super light ... (Plus I got it at a great price).

I think this is a must for vintage keyboards, coupled with a stage piano (RD 300 NX for me), I have all the keyboards on hand, it's just huge.

And best of all: quality Swedish ... finish ... there was a real instrument.
