Product Description

The Nord Piano 2 HA88 lets you play, split and layer sounds from both the Nord Piano Library and the Nord Sample Library and features a versatile effect section - all in a portable package sporting a premium 88-note Hammer Action keybed.

Piano Section

The Nord Piano 2 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 new Grand Pianos to detuned upright bar pianos with tons of charm.

The entire Nord Piano Library is included on DVDs and new additions can be downloaded free on the Nord Piano Library page. Replacing the sounds in your Nord Piano 2 is simply a matter of dragging and dropping files in the Nord Sound Manager for Mac and Windows.

Unique Features

The included Nord Triple Pedal has Soft and Sustenuto Pedals in addition to a unique Dynamic Sustain Pedal enabling the use of half-pedaling and "release and catch" techniques.

Long Release adds a slightly longer release to the tone, which can be suitable when playing legato.

Advanced String Resonance reproduces the intricate interplay of piano strings resonating at their fundamental or harmonic frequencies when other notes are played on their Upright and Grand piano sounds.

Pedal Noise recreates the mechanical sounds of lifting and releasing the damper mechanism, producing the characteristic thomp and sizzle sounds. The Pedal Noise feature responds dynamically to the force/momentum used when pressing or releasing the pedal.

Sample Synth Section

The Sample Synth section in the Nord Piano 2 supports the extensive Nord Sample Library - containing over 1000 quality sounds from leading sample producers as well as the exclusively licensed sounds of the Mellotron and Chamberlin.

The Nord Sample library is updated on a regular basis and new additions can be downloaded for free! See the Nord Sample Library section to learn more and to listen to the sounds available!

The Sample Synth section has dedicated knobs for adjusting the attack and release and volume of the selected sound. Volume can also be controlled with an optional Volume Pedal and the Sustenuto pedal on the Nord Triple Pedal can be used as a separate Sustain/Gate Pedal for the Sample Synth section for advanced layering possibilites.

With the included software Nord Sample Editor you can even create your own sample instruments. Load your .WAV-files, assign them to keys on the keyboard and transfer them to the Nord Piano 2 to play them instantly. The Nord Sample Editor can also assist you in looping and mapping your sounds.

Effect Section

The Nord Piano 2 has an extensive Effect section with great, tweakable effects. Each effect section can be assigned to either the Piano or the Sample Synth section and lets you instantly add some dirt, glimmer or atmosphere to your sound.

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

Performance

The Nord Piano 2 has dedicated knobs and buttons for all vital functions a player needs in a performance situation. Transposing, setting up a split point or creating a layered sound is accomplished in seconds. There are 240 locations, organized in 2 banks with 24 pages with 5 programs each. The Nord Piano 2 also has 5 Live locations that automatically save the current settings - ideal as a sketching pad at rehearsals when trying out new sound combinations in the search of the perfect sound.

The Fatar TP-40 keybed in each Nord Piano 2 is calibrated at the Clavia factory to ensure an even and homogenous response. Furthermore, 4 selectable Dynamic Response Curves let you adjust the response of the keybed to your playing style, and these can be stored indiviually with each program.

Lightweight

The Nord Piano 2 is the most lightweight (18 kg/40 lbs) professional 88-key stage piano on the market.

MIDI Over USB

The USB-port on the Nord Piano 2 also serves as a USB-MIDI interface. No driver required for Mac OS X and a WHQL certified driver is available for Windows.

Monitor Input

Just plug your MP3 or CD player to the Nord Piano 2 monitor input to play along, rehearse to or jam with previously recorded music without the need of an external mixer or sound system. The signal is monitored through the headphone output.

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "A SOLID keyboard that will WOW you!!!!"
Overall: I purchased the Nord Piano 2 a while ago from Zzounds.com and decided to wait on writing a review until I used it in all the functions I was planning on using it. I am a touring musician and play approximately 150 gigs/year. I have transported and used this keyboard at multiple venues and have to say that each time I take this keyboard out of its case, it makes me fall in love with it all over again. I am foremost a fiddler, but have serious keyboard chops and put this keyboard to use. The main reason I chose a Piano 2 compared to a higher end Nord keyboard is because I didn't have a need for extra features other than a solid keyboard. The factors that made me choose Nord are the following: 1. Solid, roadworthy gear that will last through my investment - bulky plastic encasements indeed are light, but not roadworthy. No plastic here. This keyboard is SOLID. Just walking up to it and touching it, you sense it's different than the rest. The action is amazing. My colleagues have all tried my Nord 2 and have been super impressed. 2. No silly, complicated menus to sift through. I'm not impressed by complicated touch screen bells and whistles. My goal when choosing which keyboard I was going to purchase was that I would be able to get the sound I wanted out of the keyboard within 10 seconds of walking up to it. The keyboard had to shine within 10 seconds. If I couldn't achieve the sound, then I ruled that keyboard out. All of the features the Nord 2 offers are easy to navigate and are right at your fingertips. Super powerful yet simple interface. 3. Nord's dedication to providing up-to-date technology on sampling and dedication to providing the user with an interface that was easy and simple to use. Nord has spent incredible amounts of time and energy in making technology work for the user - the samples are stunning. Absolutely incredible. With regards to Zzounds.com - as always, they are super easy to work with. I was able to find this keyboard new at a lower price and in one phone call Zzounds not only matched the price, they beat it by $50. My home is in Northern NY. I ordered at 1pm and the keyboard was at my doorstep the following morning at 9am - not even 24 hours. I also purchased a hard Gator case ($350). Fits perfectly and is solid. I have no doubt my investment will last. Buy a Nord - you won't be sorry. I haven't used support from the manufacturer, but I'm confident that IF I ever need to, it would be 5 star service.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
