It is a bit heavy (18kg) but no need to have 3 synths, everything was ready: Organ - Piano - Rhodes - synths, the total splitables and bunk. I sell all my equipment, I no longer need an instrument on stage.
Manuel super efficient, editing sounds a breeze, access to sounds made by all the tips.
This instrument includes all dream of having a keyboard in hand, with a dose of thinking quite impressive when you understand why things are arranged this way on the machine. It's a keyboard designed for the stage, live, and designed with the help of professional musicians that turn, that's for sure.
The "manager sounds" could not be simpler to use.
Only complaint, samples of synths can not be heard before being put into the beast, so I spent some time loading and transfer of sound.
Be careful not to clean samples in any way, as some sounds use these samples in layer.
Great sounds! Finally, I found the emotional attachment to a keyboard, I had lost that right from the piano of my childhood. It has a soul and that piano sounds are realistic incryablement. (See my songs in "Tribute to George Duke, except the battery, all sounds coming from the NORTH STAGE 2).
Only downside, as usual on all keyboards, including the most sophisticated: the brass are poor. However, the violins are really great when we understand how to play them.
As for the organ sounds, piano and rhodes, a bliss! And to think I almost bought one Rhodes (the lightest weighs 65 kg!)
Rhodes to the need to worry.
I utlise since June 1, 2011. First concert yesterday, the total happiness, sounds of thunder of God.
He'll have to write Clavia to tell them that their demos on their site do not quite enhance the quality of their sounds. They are actually much better than on all the sites I've visited before you spend € 3000. I think I've seen everything on the NORTH STAGE 2, youtube, forums, etc..
In truth, the sounds sound better than the sites, because there finally make contact with a touch of piano which approximates the orginał, my body remembers it, a bit like Proust's madeleine I found the pleasure of hearing the slightest sound basic melody.
The sound quality ... it's so important!
Here I am again connected on a visceral keyboard, like the characters of Avatar, but not by the tail, just the hands and ears.
