Yes, it ... Sounds great!


I was looking for a standalone keyboard sounds for classic / vintage, namely Piano, Hammond, Rhodes, etc ... and prt DGain for concerts / rpeter.

The EX NordStage has done everything and more.

Hammond B-3, Vox Continental, Farfisa, with of course the fact that Leslie okay, the 9 Drawbars, the tremolo and chorus DDIS (and everything else, the block is Organ is very complete)

Acoustic Pianos (Grand, Law, Foster, etc. ..)

Electric Piano Rhodes and Wurlitzer type, Grand Electric

with the Clavinet and Auto Wha-Wha please,

and a block synth basic but versatile trs (Leads, Pads, Bass).

Add everything has a wide range of effects assignable to choose from: Reverb, Delay, Tremolo, Auto Pan, Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, Wha, Wha-Auto, amp simulation, overdrive, compressor ...

No need to go in obscure menus, but the parameters are on the control panel in the form of buttons or knobs (there are certainly a lot but their use is empty). For those who like the menus, there even when in a! (system, sound, midi, etc ...).

At the rear, there are all the connectors you need or want to have! Sustain Pedal, Switch to change the speed of Leslie, Volume Swell Organ, the noon in / out, two pairs of line level output jack and a USB port for communication with a computer. (Last day of the OS internal loading sounds and patches, etc. ..)

I have long hsit The models between 88 and 76 marks and 73 hit piano keyboard compatc Waterfall type Hammond / Synth especially since the card prices are not large trs.

Dja matre having a keyboard 88-key piano, I naturally dirrig to the compact 73 ratings hit Waterfall.
It is really compact and lightweight, easy to carry in concert, in studio or RPET.

In addition, the NordStage callibr is frankly to be controlled by one or more external keyboards, if only for mulate the game typical of a good old Hammond B-3 double keys.
Finally, the piano is great for touching the piano, but not the top for Hammond, Rhodes or synths, so ...

In use, a keyboard is an excellent bill, very easy and enjoyable to play, and more color "ivory crme" of white cots associated with wood graining apparent Lazur red and pitch wooden stick finish to finish you off! Is that this keyboard has a mouth! It's not the kind of plastic toy you got to put shame on your old Rhodes.

What about sound? When you put in a minimum 2500 euros keyboard sounds you hear gniaux ... naturally! Some patches are catastrophic (and still is a matter of taste), others are just sublime (ibid.).

Regardless, the raw sounds are, whether piano, Hammond, Wurlitzer and Rhodes and other Clavinet or you close your eyes and you there! In a good pair of monitoring speakers is a DLIC, always fair, sometimes stunning.
The piano, for example, and contrary to prcedente versions, is truly superb and done everything practitioner.

Here, 2,500 euros (16,400 balls for fans of balls) about the Compact 73 and in full PERIOD crisis, it's probably not the keyboard that you can pay you just to make you a treat. ..! (if you're pet you can go with closed eyes and ears wide open!)

This is clearly an investment for the amateur musician and professional passion that will draw assurment lot of fun, but above all a weapon of mass destruction to produce or accompany with gusto.

For The characteristics, CF docs on the Clavia site.


Use: A self-evident.




In fact, I already did a review on the Nord Stage in its previous version (not EX) and I will rather give you a notice of the minimal diffrence between these 2 versions:

For the NS EX (compared to non RX) I can say first that the first sounds of piano with strings rsonnance brings a little more for the player (and perhaps recorded on album), but live, nobody will make the difference. So has my opinion should not be a barrier to purchase the old version.

The colors of the panel are my taste although my older because DIFFERENT spaces (piano, organ, synth ....) are less well dlimite So we find ourselves facing a box of buttons gray background that blend a little. 1 point for the former.

However, it is more pleasant to be able to put more memory in pianos DIFFERENT before, even if 256 MB still limited (especially as there are new sounds prvus in the quarter) . 1 point all the same for the EX (even though I very well with my 128 MB VCU for 3 years).

I had a pleasant surprise at the synths. RVision on A and B, there was an update brings many new waveforms, but we had to get their hands dirty to program them. The EX had the LS its full 3x99 synth sounds and programs, and frankly, there's the best over the staffing of my series on the Rev B.

FYI, the new factory synth sounds are on the Clavia site. Galit So on this point.

Finally, the EX is a tad better than the Previous version but it is minimal and the difference should not pay more than 200 300 euro for those who seek opportunity.
