Clavia Nord C2D
The C2D by Nord has dual 61 key organs. It has real drawbars on it, I have recently let go of the Electro 2 for the C2D because of the dual keyboards and real drawbars on it. I was waiting for the release of the C2D for a long time and finally got my hands on it a few months ago. The C2D is very expensive but it is a must have, if you can not afford it then save up your money and get it as soon as you have to money for it because you will not have better sounding organs. If you love the B3 then this is the only board that is going to give you that sound in the portable version. I have tried tons of keyboards, many of which had some good sounding organs. Nords organs have always been the best, but the C2D makes the previous versions of the Electro’s sound horrible compared to the sound of the organs on the C2D.


Setting up the C2D is pretty simple, but this was the first time that I have owned a Nord dual keyboard. The interface was different and it did have a small learning curve but it only took me a few hours to fully have a good grasp on how everything works.


It does come with a manual but I didn’t use it to get the hang of the keyboard. I just started messing with it until I had everything down. It was easier for me to learn like that than to start reading through the manual.


The organ sounds are the best, period. You will not find better sounding organs on a newer portable keyboard. They C2D may be heavy and it is a lot of work to transport it around but it is worth the backache. It is heavy and well built. You just can’t go wrong with the C2D.

Clavia Nord C2D
Double waterfall keyboard 5 octaves. Optional foot Midi.
Modeling tonewheel organ - modeling Farfisa and Vox Continental - baroque pipe organ sampled.
All required on this type of instrument controllers, optional expression pedal, Leslie On / Off / Stop, Sustain.
The connection is complete, stereo jack 6.35, stereo input for audio player, making 11-pin Leslie, Leslie output jack (for audio data, not) USB.
Editing program / library of sounds downloaded from the Clavia site utlisation Midi by DAW.
Total polyphony.


Configuration is very simple, its controls are designed to fall under the hand as a Hammond.

Three pages of programmable set-up are available: sound system, Midi.

The manual is very clear and complete (except to note program updates yourself).

The issue is simple, like the original instrument. It allows you to configure its own generator setting wheels finely (3 models + or - recent, with harmonic leakage and color, adjusting the keyboard click, rotational speeds of the Leslie, etc ...).


This is a simulation of organ, so if we choose, we know what styles to use.
Personally, I'm a fade sound Hammond, the Farfisa and Vox are anecdotal, but they are making a comeback now. The Baroque organ is specific to classical (quoique. ..).

All sounds are extremely realistic, I would say live, which is in my opinion not the case of Hammond-Suzuki XK3c, which is what B3 donuts Find ... are caught a fresh fish.
B3 is almost identical to the original, except for two details, bass and Leslie. The most striking defect is the loss of bass sounds of the pedal (sounds can have on the keyboard down 2 octaves). They do not have the body, the power and depth of the original, for those who want to play jazz repertoire, and have a little incongruous harmonic midrange. But it is always possible to improve using a parametric equalizer ...

The other flaw, perfectible (Elvio Previati showed a striking manner the keyb) is Leslie, yet totally believable despite major modeling efforts of 122.
Personally, I do not use the internal Leslie, but a Neo Ventilator, pedal available in Germany at a retailer in VPC, guess who? This pedal is very powerful, almost at the fabulous Leslie digital equipping the keyb The Dietro of Quinte. There are other, new digital Leslie and Strymon Lex.

Otherwise, the bass power aside, the sound of C2D is wonderful and I defy anyone to tell the difference with a real B3, once connected to a Leslie 3300.

On an organ, no velocity or aftertouch (the keyboard C2D can still control the velocity of an expander driven Midi!), But an expression pedal which is also a parametric equalizer, since giving volume, it enriches the spectrum of the signal and increases the overdrive in a very credible way.


I use it for almost a year, and I'm in love!

I tried everything, Hammond XK3c frozen keyb fabulous but expensive and fragile Duo except Crumar Mojo which is said the greater good.
Before I had the C1, C2 North. The C2D is a marked improvement over its predecessors (percussion and click).

*** A big detail that is not emphasized enough: C2 owners can charge Treats OS 2.00 which gives them all the sounds and settings C2D except zippers, of course!

The +: sound, powerful and living like a true weight (15 kg) and reliability.

The -: the relative weakness of bass, keyboard a little cheap compared to its direct competitors.

Value / price good enough, despite the significant increase in C2.
