OVERVIEW

Lightweight organ action on Nord's flagship performance keyboard.

Nord's primary stage piano in recent years has been the Nord Stage 2. The Nord Stage 2 EX updates all features of the Stage 2, retaining all of the timeless attributes that has made it one of the most popular stage pianos available. A full gigabyte of memory bolsters the already muscular Nord Piano Library, resulting in broader, deeper, richer sound. Additionally, several new piano voicings have been introduced for you to audition. One or several of them may suit your performance perfectly.

This is the 73-key version of the Nord Stage 2 EX, equipped with Nord's Hammer Action keybed. The EX 2 73 keybed uses semi weighted organ keys with a rounded "waterfall" tip, great for rapid organ shredding and synthesizer licks, but also plays nicely with piano sounds. Key range E-E.

The new Factory Bank features 5 Grand Pianos, 7 Upright Pianos, 11 Electric Pianos, Clavinet, Harpsichords and a vastly improved Nord Sample Library selection including great new Strings, Choir and Folk instruments. Of course the piano, organ and synth sounds that garnered all of the tech awards over the past several years are retained and worked into the newly developed interface. For the professional, the working musician, the person who insists on great sound and impeccable performance, the Nord Stage 2 EX should be on your short list of keyboard options.

Note: As of 2/1/17, Nord has announced a Software Update for its Stage, Electro and Piano lines. This software update includes a new OS for Nord Stage 2/2 EX, Nord Electro 5 and Nord Piano 3 that fixes a bug related to long release for synth pianos. Nord has also updated the Nord Sound Manager, adding support for Stage 2/2 EX with increased piano bank locations. Wurlitzers have been moved to E.Piano 1 bank (introduced with NS2/NS2EX OS v2.20). Download Update from Nord’s website.
