Great emulations of electromechanical keyboards.
The organ in the Nord Electro 2 Rackmount Synthesizer is based on the digital simulation of the mechanical tone wheels of the B-3 organ and it offers a number of very innovative solutions to mimic the typical B-3 sound. Such innovations include: complex digital modeling of the original B3 chorus and vibrato scanner, simulation of the individual random contact bounces for each partial, and simulation of the unique frequency characteristics of the built-in preamplifier which forms the body of the B-3 sound. The drawbars are represented by up/down buttons and LED bar graphs. So when you change presets, the correct drawbar settings are shown immediately by the LEDs, avoiding the need for trial and error.
The piano section of the Nord Electro 2 Synth comprises several carefully multi-sampled electric piano instruments. As a bonus, it also includes an acoustic grand piano. The piano sounds are built up by a vast number of multisamples to catch every nuance from soft to hard hits. USB interface for quick and easy download of new piano sounds. Very flexible effects section including a rotary speaker simulation.
- Drawbar settings presets:
- 8 drawbar presets plus a random preset function in ROM and 9 user drawbar settings
- Electric piano section:
- Rhodes Mk I Stage Piano, Rhodes Mk I Suitcase Piano, Wurlitzer 200A, Clavinet D6 and the custom modified Clavia Electric Grand Model G, and stereo acoustic Malmsjoe grand piano
- 48 user memory locations (6 banks holding 8 programs each) in which you can store complete setups, including instrument settings (organ or piano) and effects settings
- Overdrive, rotary speaker simulation (slow, fast, stop), equalizer, chorus (2 types), flanger (2 types), phaser (2 types), tremolo, wah-wah (2 types), auto wah, auto panning, and ring modulation
- 2 audio outputs, 1 headphone output, MIDI I/O, USB interface

I use this guy all the time. Its tones are wonderful. The wurly/rhodes/b3 are amazing. The Acoustic piano....not so much. The only other downside to this is the fact that its kinda pricey. Other than that, its perfect. I recomment it for anyone that plays Indie Post rock.<3
What I like about the nord 3 is its uncanny ability to have the electric piano and clavinet sounds that I love. I do have a rhodes, wurlitzer, and clavinet but I use them in sthe sudio and don't use them onstage. I have mine midied to a Roland A-80, and I use the organ sounds when I want to put them thru phasers, flangers, and other space-age sounds, and I also run it through a line 6 delay. I'd like to thank nord fopr letting me be creative with this thing...
If you love Hammond, Rhodes, Clav, Wurly, and acoustic piano, this is the one to get. Amazing Hammond emulation, excellent Lealie sim, high quality effects that can be tweaked on the fly, and samples of the other instruments that (with the exception of the piano) are the best on the market. Don't get me wrong, the pianos are good, but the electric instruments are where this thing really shines. The Rhodes are dead on, the Wurly, barks just right, and the Clav- well that's a whole other monster. Start with a great Clav sample, then add in all the pickup and filter settings, all changeable with a twist of a dial, and they nailed everything about a Clav save the damper (wishlist). A USB sample dump utility allows you to change out sounds with sets available free from Clavia. I have to say that of all the digital instruments I've ever owned, this is the only one that really speaks to me, that I can't gig without. I can say with confidence that I'll be getting a keyboard version at some point to have organ and Clav on that board while using the Rack with my weighted controller for Rhodes Wurly and piano. BTW, there's also an acoustic with pickups and a CP-80 for electric grand sounds (sounds great, just not my cup of tea)
