Brings the flavor in realtime with performance-oriented tools.
This second-generation modular synth has over 120 synth building-blocks under the hood so you'll never run out of sonic possibilities. It boasts 37 keys, a mic preamp, pitch stick, mod wheel, 5 LCDs, rotary knobs, and onboard editing capabilities. The software now features reverbs, delays, string oscillators, and much more.
The G2 introduces an innovative hardware platform with a focus on live performance features. It offers fully-assignable controllers to turn, bend, and tweak--and takes real-time editing to a higher level. 4 analog audio inputs including an XLR mic input with built-in preamp give you plenty of room for inserting external signals and patching them. Crystal-clear 24-bit/96kHz A/D/A conversion ensures highest possible audio quality.
The realtime editing controls and visual feedback from the LCDs make tweaking a step sequencer fun and extremely easy. The fantastic Morph capabilities on the G2 offer enormous sonic variations. The G2's 8 Morph Groups per patch let you control sets of parameters from single internal control sources - and via MIDI. The pitch stick on the G2 can also be used to control an entire Morph Group!
Thanks to the realtime USB communication, the G2 immediately responds to your patching and follows your moves. Most of the modules are self-optimizing, meaning that they adapt their DSP load to the patched signals. The flexible modules also make it easy to alter functionality without needing to replace modules. To replace modules, just switch out the module and the cables will jump to the corresponding connections on the new module.

I've had this synth for about a year. Also use soft synths but wanted a hardware synth as a secondary keys and backup for gigs. The G2 has those great Nord synth-lead presets and immediate control features you'll love. Several good control knobs for the tweaker. Even more control is available for designing patches in the G2 editor that can be downloaded into the G2 with your computer. There is a whole community of G2 users creating patches.Computer synthesis however is hardly an intuitive subject (um, I mean it's really difficult and detailed for a newbie). And creating new sounds/modules/programming sequencer is much easier with an intuitive software synthesizer like Reason.I would recommend getting the DSP expander right away to be able to maximize the number of voices for multiple on-stage presets. Also you should get the Nord carrying case because it's very cool and inexpensive to protect this synth.
I've owned this synth for about 6 months now. You can replicate so many of the pioneers of industrial / rave / electronica music just by tweaking with a few presets. NiN? No Problem. The Prodigy? Got it. KMFDM? Yup. I wish I had a piece of hardware like this 10 years ago. The editor on the computer is also amazing. I've spent countless hours tweaking samples and it's addictive. I feel like I've opened the door to creativity with this synth as music just happens. It's also easy to use for the technically minded. If it was ever stolen or broke I'd immediatly go out and purchase another.
