The Nord Piano 2 HP 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 HP 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.

Ultra lightweight, 73-key Hammer Action Portable (HP) keybed.

Comments about Nord Piano 2 HP73 73-Key Piano:

What I expected and got was beautiful, nuanced acoustic pianos, rhodes, wurlis, clav (better than anything I've played besides a real clav) and harpsichord. Sad to learn that there's almost NO usable organs on this (well there are some beautiful pipe organs, but I'm talking B3, Vox, etc). Somehow missed that in all my research, and I did quite a bit. Nord has tons of Vox and Farfisa samples that I'm sure sound great, but this keyboard has no engine to run them.

I owned a Motif for years, and one of the biggest adjustments I've had to make (had this for 3 months), is that all your "extra" sounds (orchestral, guitar, synth, etc) have to be laboriously downloaded and come with no onboard effects or EQ. So TONS of time trying out sounds and tweaking them. I actually was bummed out for awhile, but with hard work I have a large, tasty sound set now.

Final complaint, and this is MAJOR for live shows: Hard to access favorite sounds quickly. I'm working on memorizing the multiple clicks I have to make to find what I need. Can't be that hard, Nord -- c'mon!

BUT the sounds make it all worth it.
