Featuring the best of Nord’s award-winning technologies, the Nord Stage 2 hosts three different instrument sections - Organ, Piano and Synth - plus an extensive effects section. You can use two sounds of each Section simultaneously - that’s two Organ manuals, two Synths, and two Pianos. These can be combined in any split or layered configuration you need for your performance.
The Nord Stage 2’s user interface is designed from a basic concept: All vital functions are represented on the front panel - easy to access, and never further away than a press of a single button. After more than 20 years of experience in designing instruments to be used by professional musicians, we know how important it is to make the technology completely transparent for the user. With the Nord Stage 2 you only need to focus on your performance, which means never having to struggle with the technology.
Nord's patented Pitch Stick and Modulation Wheel are included for maximum musical expression. A top-of-the-line weighted hammer-action keyboard makes you feel that the Stage’s sound is balancing at the tip of your fingers, completely under your control. Nord's efficient Morph Grouping technique is also included, allowing you to assign sound and effects parameters to one physical controller.
All together, the Nord Stage 2 is a musical, reliable, efficient, and roadworthy companion that delivers results, and provides the means to express your passion for playing.
Nord carefully selected a keyboard from Fatar’s professional keyboard line. The Nord Stage 2 hosts a weighted hammer-action keyboard with aftertouch for the right dynamic feel. Since the Nord Stage 2 is a multi-keyboard instrument different software techniques where developed for simulating different types of keyboard action. The Piano features early hammer firing for fast and heavy play, and “bottom touch” for soft play. The Clavinet simulates the hammerless tapping of the strings, making staccato playing techniques more precise. The Organ features highpoint triggering for a light touch and fast playing technique.

I recently purchased the 'Stage 2' (88) and have found it to be the most versatile, transportable keyboard I have ever owned. The piano, organ, synth and effect timbres are outstanding. I am a working musician who has little time to tweak and fiddle at home, so the accessibility of the keyboards many, many attributes, is a real plus point.
I bought my Nord Stage 2 (88) on the Thursday and gigged it on the Saturday night. That's how straight forward and user friendly the technology is. Every button and knob is designed for fast moving live and or studio work. There is no need to mess around with menus and edit suites; this thing has it all right in front of you, at the touch of a button.
This is my first experience with Nord after almost 25 years of being a professional musician, but it most certainly will not be my last. Sorry this review is not as technical as this product deserves, but hopefully it may encourage the curious minds out there to throw caution to the wind and just go for it like I did. You won't regret it, I promise.
