Product Description

The Nord Electro 4D features everything from the award-winning Electro 3 series, adding a set of physical drawbars, the tone wheel organ engine from the Nord C2D and USB-MIDI -- all in a portable package sporting a 61-note Semi-weighted Waterfall keybed.

Fatar Semi-weighted Waterfall Keybed

Nord's "SW" keybed type uses semi-weighted organ-type keys with a rounded "waterfall" tip. This Fatar keybed is brilliant for rapid organ shredding and synthesizer licks, but also plays nice with piano sounds. On the 61-key Electro 4D, you'll have a key range of C to C.

Organ Section

The Electro 4D sports one setup of physical drawbars of the same type as on their flagship organ, the Nord C2D, perfect for actively shaping the sound on the fly. The organ can be split, for compact dual manual action and its even possible to assign the lower manual to a second MIDI keyboard. Furthermore the Electro 4D naturally has inputs for a Swell pedal and for controlling the Rotary Speaker.

The Nord Electro 4D features the B3 tone wheel organ engine from their flagship organ Nord C2D and includes a redesigned Key Click simulation as well as the Rotary Speaker simulation of a vintage 122 unit with a great overdrive. The percussion model has been improved to offer increased control over the percussion levels when playing near-legato. Naturally, the vibrato and chorus scanners have been carefully modeled to be just as alive as the tone wheels.

The Farfisa* and Vox* models are just as impressive as the B3, simulating the behavior and unique response of the original instruments. The Farfisa Compact Deluxe, considered by many to be the mother of transistor organs, involves routing matrixes and complex filter combinations that offer a tailored sound with massive energy and high-end.

The Vox* Continental's brute design brings you a more hollow tone, but with a very intense character. Both these transistor organs have their own unique, irreplaceable personalities. Combine them with any of the Amp simulations, add some distortion, adjust the EQ and they will definitely get you through any organ gig with flying colors.

Piano Section

The Nord Electro 4D comes loaded with a selection of amazing sounds from the Nord Piano Library -- their specialized library for Grand, Upright and Electrical Pianos, Clavinet and Harpsichords.

All the sounds have been recorded using their state-of-the-art sampling techniques to capture the extraordinary nuances and unique characters of the source instruments and covers everything from brilliant, factory Grand Pianos to detuned upright bar pianos with tons of charm.

The entire Nord Piano Library is included on DVDs and additions can be downloaded free on the Nord Piano Library page. Replacing the sounds in your Nord Electro 4D is simply a matter of dragging and dropping files in the Nord Sound Manager for Mac and Windows.

The Nord Electro 4D includes the optional Long Release feature, suitable for legato playing styles and has an ON/OFF button for the String Resonance (Gen 1) feature on Grand and Upright Pianos.

185 MB of the memory is dedicated to Nord Piano Library sounds.

Nord Sample Library and Sample Editor

The Nord Electro 4D supports the Nord Sample Library, giving you access to their exclusively licensed Mellotron and Chamberlin sounds and a wide selection of quality sounds from leading sample producers. See the Nord Sample Library section to learn more and listen more than 1000 the sounds currently available! The Nord Sample library is updated on a regular basis and additions can be downloaded for free!

The included Nord Sample Editor makes it possible to add any sound you want to your Electro 4D. The Sample Editor can use audio files in the .wav format and has great tools to assist you in getting the results you want. Mapping several samples across the keyboard or creating seamless loops has never been easier.

The Electro 4D has 68 MB of memory dedicated to samples and their efficient lossless compression algorithm makes it possible for them to use samples of up to three times the size compared to a standard linear sample player.

Effect Section

The Nord Electro 4D has an extensive Effect section with great, tweakable effects for instantly adding some dirt, glimmer or atmosphere to your sound.

The Amp/Speaker simulation now features the same Vintage 122 Rotary Speaker simulations as found in their flagship organ, Nord C2D. Also, there's a flexible Stereo Delay effect with Tap-Tempo and Ping-Pong mode.

Effect 1 - Pan, Tremolo, Auto-wah (stereo)
Effect 2 - Phaser, Flanger and Chorus (stereo)
Delay - Stereo delay effect with Tap Tempo button and Ping-Pong mode
Three band EQ, with sweepable mid
Compressor/Amp - Twin, JC, Small, Rotary and Compressor
Reverb with six algorithms - Room 1 & 2, Stage 1 & 2, Hall 1 & 2

Performance

Changing, editing and storing presets is a breeze and there is even 4 Live memory locations that automatically saves what you're doing. The Program memory can hold 128 different Programs, and these are organized in 4 Program Banks with 32 Pages each.

All Nord instruments have dedicated knobs and buttons for all vital functions to keep the interface simple and easy to use during a performance. Functions only accessible through menus are printed on the panel for easy overview.

The 61-key Semi Weighted Waterfall (C-C) is naturally brilliant for organ chops but even works great for piano parts. Each Fatar keybed is meticulously calibrated at the Nord factory to ensure an even response over the whole range.
