The Nord Piano 4 88 Note Digital Stage Piano builds on its predecessors by adding more polyphony, bigger memory and many more banks to save your performance settings. It goes without saying that Nord delivers some of the best piano/keys samples that have ever been produced and when you begin to play the Piano 4 you'll understand why they are considered best in class.
Virtual Hammer Action
The keyboard of the Nord Piano 4 comes with incredible virtual hammer action technology that simulates the natural movements of hammers that you would find on a grand piano. This goes far beyond standard weighted keyboards, offering the subtle characteristics and exceptional authenticity of acoustic, mixed with the power of digital.
The Nord Piano 4 is also capable of split and layer modes so that you can create complex sounding performances with simple operation which is ideal for live performances. The sound engine is also capable of a whopping 120 note polyphony so that you won't suffer from note drop-outs.
Rich sound library
The Nord Piano 4 features 1GB of dedicated Nord Piano Library sounds, including some of the worlds best grand piano's through to retro digital piano's, clavinet and harpsichords. The Nord Piano 4 comes with voices pre-loaded but should you wish to change them with the voices on the included DVD, it's simply a case of connecting to your computer and dragging and dropping the files in the Nord Sound Manager.
Once you have your desired voices loaded, the top panel of the Nord Piano 4 gives you all of the power and flexibility to manipulate voices to your liking without the need for confusing menu's. Advanced string resonance, pedal noise, soft release and more can be easily added and stored for later.
Also situated on the top panel of the Nord Piano 4 is the easy to use effects control panel that gives you the ability to add pan, tremolo, chorus, reverb, EQ as well as amp simulation for those deliciously crunchy Dyno EP sounds. Again, there are no confusing deep menu's to be found here, only hands-on control tapping directly into studio grade quality sound.
Finally, the Nord Piano 4 comes with a clear OLED display that shows which instrument is selected along with any layered or split instrument information. This is surrounded by master level, keyboard mode, transpose and program memory bank selection buttons too. The Nord Piano 4 88 Note Digital Stage Piano was built to perform and thanks to the free OS updates and ability to load in new samples, it's a stage piano that can grow with you.
