I have been using the Electro 3 HP since June of this year, it has no sequencer or speakers on it but it has some really good effects. The polyphony is 40 to 60 voices and the keys are weighted and have a nice feel to them. The Electro 3 HP was pretty expensive, but it is way better than the Electro 2. The Electro 3 HP does weigh a little more than I expected it to weight and that was almost a deal breaker for me because I travel a lot and go to different studios to work.

UTILIZATION

Setting up the Electro 3 was easier than the Electro 2 was to set up. The Electro 3 HP also has MIDI in and out with 2 main left and right outputs and 1 1/8 input. The design and layout of the Electro 3 HP is great, they made some major changes to the layout after the previous models of Nord Electro’s.

SOUNDS

If you have always liked Nord for the piano sounds they have on the synths they produce then you will love the Electro 3 just as much as previous models. The organs are perfect , if you have the Electro 2 then you will pretty much be getting the exact same organs.

OVERALL OPINION

I would say that if you have the Electro 2 then I really wouldn’t invest the money to upgrade to the Electro 3 HP unless you like the newer interface that much better. Because most of the functions are exactly the same and the sounds are pretty much the same. There are not too many new things that you are getting with the Electro 3 HP besides the newer looking interface. But if you are looking to get the Electro 3 HP and you don’t have the previous models then this is well worth the money. I would buy it as soon as possible!
