Combining one of the worlds best analogue engines from the acclaimed Nord Lead 4 with an streamlined interface for improved and fast programming, the Nord Lead A1 analogue modelling synthesizer will deliver stunning sounds with innovative flexibility.

The Nord Lead A1 introduces a new front panel designed to make your programming and playing experience as simple as possible without loosing any functionality. One of the main features of the new interface is the Oscillator section, where Oscillator configuration shortcuts allow patches to be created and edited far quicker than is usually possible for synthesis of this complexity. Using a single LFO and simplified Modulation Envelope with intuitive controls on the front panel, it is also very quick to experiment with modulations, whilst maintaining a clear overview of the structure of the patch. Nord's acclaimed Morph function via velocity or the mod wheel is also included, allowing multiple parameters to be 'morphed' in real time and with exceptionally easy control, ideal for live performances.

Sound enhancement

Nord have included a new 'Like' function to use during patch creation. Akin to creating notes in pencil, this function allows you to save temporary snapshots of your sounds as you edit to refer back to.

Should you feel adventurous, the Lead A1 has a mutation feature that will randomise certain elements of the sound or a full randomise feature to create a whole new sound. Finally, a 'unison' mode will beef up your sound delivering a fat sound that will rival any analog synth.

Underneath the Nord Lead A1's simple interface lurks complex components to deliver the sound that only a Nord product can achieve. On-board filters include Low Pass, High Pass and Band Pass, along with new extremely accurate modeled ladder M and ladder TB filters introduced in the Lead 4. The Lead A1 features an independent effects processor. Delay, high quality reverb, plus a choice of drive, ring modulation, phaser, flanger, ensemble or chorus are available per slot. The impressive new ensemble and chorus effects are analog models of specific classic synths, bringing classic vintage analogue warmth and feel.

Special features

Additional functions include an independent arpeggiator for each of the four slots, Master Clock sync of the LFO, delay and Arpeggiator, MIDI over USB, and four independent outputs. The Lead A1 also includes the Nord Sound Manager software patch librarian. Like all Nord products, the Lead A1 analogue modeling synthesizer has been made with meticulous attention and you can guarantee life-long, stunning performance from this remarkable synthesizer.
