      OVERVIEW

      The Nord Piano 2 HA88 lets you easily play, split, and layer stunning Grand, Upright, and Electric Pianos from the Nord Piano Library with sounds from the versatile Nord Sample Library. All this in a streamlined portable package with 88 Hammer Action Weighted keys.

      The Nord Piano 2 comes with a wide range of quality acoustic and electro-mechanical instruments from the Nord Piano Library, all with their own unique character. The included Nord Triple Pedal features a dynamic sustain pedal that can also recreate the mechanical "stomp" and "sizzle" noises that occur when the lifting or releasing the dampener in an Acoustic Grand or Upright Piano. The Advanced String Resonance feature simulates the subtle phenomenon that occurs when piano strings cause other un-dampened strings to resonate, further adding to an amazing level of realism.

      The Nord Sample Library offers more than 1000 high-quality sample-instruments ranging from Strings, Brass, Synths and Basses to the legendary vintage sounds of the Mellotron and Chamberlin. Both the Nord Piano and Nord Sample libraries are continuously updated and are available as free downloads for all Nord owners.

      All of the sounds in the Nord Piano 2 HA88 are also replaceable, making it an instrument that is built to evolve with you. It's even possible to create your own sample instruments using the Nord Sample Editor.

      Nord thinks technology should be transparent to the user, which is why the Nord Piano 2 has dedicated buttons and knobs for all functions the performing musician needs instead of confusing menus. Nord made it amazingly simple to layer and split sounds, and there's a volume pedal input for sneaking in those strings while you keep playing.

      The Nord Piano 2 also sports an extensive effects section, covering everything from Phaser, Wah-wah, Flanger, Chorus and Delay effects to a 3-band Equalizer, Amp Simulations, Compressor and Reverb.

      88-key hammer action keyboard with over 1,000 sounds from the Nord Sample Library.

      Comments about Nord Piano 2 HA88 88-Key Piano:

      Very musical and expressive. Wonderful for live performances. I've heard some complain that the hammer-action keys are light to the touch, but I like it a lot even though I'm used to playing on real grand pianos. It's just a joy and an inspiration to use. The Grand lady D along with the other pianos are already worth the price of admission... but then the Nord Sample libraries are availble too, which increases the flexibility of the keyboard beyond just a stage piano. Immediately recognized in OSX when connected by USB and I was able to easily upgrade the Lady D from factory medium to high sample available on the supplied disk. Also I used it to control Reason on my laptop. Worked great with studio recordings too. My first Nord and certainly NOT my last. Highly recommended... ALSO, great customer service Musicians's Friend! Thank you! I always refer my friends and colleagues to your site.

        Comments about Nord Piano 2 HA88 88-Key Piano:

        I really like this piano because it works great in a live band it cuts very well. Some have complained of the action, i will say there are better but it is still fine, i have gotten used to it. I have had many pianos bfore that were a little pulled back in the mids and would sound good playing by yourself but could get lost in a mix. the nord seems a little punchy in the mids but can be dialed back when playing by yourself. but the mids become very good in a band setting. Awesome really! kinda like an old marshall amp for guitar they can seem alittle agressive, middy and in your face playing one somtimes by yourself but in a band they work great. Also the electric pianos, rhodes wurlis and clavs are unbelievable! Don't hesitate this is a great board!
