Authentic Acoustic Realism
Giving extra creative options the Nord Piano 2 HA88 Digital Piano comes supplied with the Nord Triple Pedal. This triple offering gives you Soft, Sustenuto & Dynamic Sustain pedals in a single unit to enable players to utilise half-pedalling and "release and catch" techniques.
Even more piano playing realism is offered by the Nord Piano 2 HA88 Digital Piano’s Pedal Noise feature. This recreates the mechanical noise of an acoustic piano’s damper pedal as it is lifted and released, and responds dynamically to the force applied to the pedal, to produce thomp and sizzle sounds.
Long Release adds a slightly longer release to the tone, which can be suitable when playing legato.
The Nord Piano 2 HA88 Digital Piano offers of acoustic realism goes even further with the Advanced String Resonance feature recreating the intricate interplay of piano strings resonating at their fundamental or harmonic frequencies when notes are played in quick succession.
