Clavia Nord Wave Synthesizer (49-Key)

Based on a legacy of inventing virtual analog synthesizers for almost 15 years, Clavia takes the next generation of lead synthesizers to the next level. Introducing the Nord Wave, you now have all the sounds you want - your sounds - in the most ultimate, easy to use and light weighed synthesizer instrument.

Following in the tradition of the renowned Nord Lead series, the Wave incorporates the Lead's virtual analog synthesis, FM synthesis, and a fully-integrated wavetable engine. These can be used separately or together, allowing users to create sounds that are a step above sample-playback.

The Wave features high-quality wavetables generated by Clavia, and using the USB port, users can download and install extra wave files from Clavia, as well as load their own custom waves using an integrated Editor. The Wave features new multi-filtering technology which includes a formant filter, and uses two slots for toggling between sounds, or layering them for even more complex sound.

Wave to the Future
The name says it all really; by introducing the oscillator to waveforms – not just single wavetable- style waveforms, but complete user-defined, key-zoned and multi-layered sampled waveforms – while keeping the full virtual analog circuitry intact, Clavia has once again opened a new dimension and brought new life to the world of synthesizers.

Take any audio snippet you like. If it can be saved as a standard wav-file, it can be used as a sound source for your synthesizer. You now have the full expressiveness of the classic analog synthesizer combined with sample technology available at your fingertips – all in a top quality, user-friendly and light weighted package.

A multitude of oscillator models...
By offering not only a large array of virtual analog oscillator models, but also fm-modulation, wavetable- and sample playback waveforms you have the ultimate synthesis sound source in a vast number of combinations. Different models can be used simultaneously and modulated freely in a classical synthesizer setup.

You are in control...
By having every sound related parameter represented by a physical control on the front panel – just as with the vintage analogue originals – you have instant access to tune your sound as you go. No menus or page buttons are in your way.

No hard drive or loading times
In the studio, you might have the time to sit back and sip some coffee while your computer is busy loading two tons of samples. While in a live situation it is all about being in the moment, and you need imminent access to your samples. That’s why it is so great that the Nord Wave has no hard drive or loading times; once you have powered up the unit you have immediate access to all samples by the turn of a knob.

Spicy Samples
We know you prefer quality over quantity, and the Nord Wave comes with a 100% General MIDI free guarantee. The samples installed when shipped from the factory holds up to the highest Clavia standard, and provide a wide palette of sounds for your live performance. All with that extra flavor needed for your sound to stand out. Plus, there is plenty of room for you to fit your own samples, or to download even more top-quality ones from the Clavia website - all for free. Everything in the sample memory area is completely user-definable - if there is a sample you do not prefer, you can remove it and use it’s space for more of the things that you do like.

Easy-to-use editor
Clavia’s vision and long term goal has always been to build the best possible instruments for the gigging musician. To offer superior quality and stunningly complex sound controlled through an intuitive user interface. The same goes for our sample editor, specially developed for the Nord Wave. It has neither bells nor whistles and is only intended for one thing; beeing the quickest and most easy to use tool for getting your samples laid out over your keys. It lets you focus on your music rather than on a piece of software.

Morph in time
Almost any synthesis related parameter can easily be connected and individually controlled by a morph source such as the modulation wheel, expression pedal, keyboard velocity or keyboard note. Complex morph scenarios are available, but setting them up could not be made more easily or intuitive - simply hold the corresponding morph controller button pressed down and tweak the parameters all you want. When operating the associated morph controller, parameters will seamlessly change to their tweaked position. Also, you can record your tweaks along a timeline.

Freaky Filters
The filter section does not only feature true 24db deep analog-modeled resonant filters of the standard low-, high-, and band-pass types with envelop and velocity control; you also have filter type combinations, and a formant filter offering to shape your sound out of recognition in no-time.

Two of everything
Sometimes you want more, and with the Nord Wave you got it. Think of there actually being two synthesizers sections or slots that can be used simultaneously. You can switch seamlessly between slots or layer them together by using the A and B slot buttons. Both slots are saved with in a program and instantly recalled just as you saved them.

Powerful effect section
EQ, delay, tube-style amp and several types of reverb give you that extra touch to truly make your sounds stand out. The tube amp features a massive overdrive, and the delay has a nice vintage character as well as tap-tempo functions.

Stick to the pitch...
The Clavia patented wooden pitch stick offers no dead zone at zero crossing, and it’s ergonomically design will give you the same vibrato and pitch control as that of a guitar player.

Superior response...
The exclusive Clavia hardware and software design brings you response times from note-on to sounding output like no other. The ultra-low latency simply does not compare to other hardware or especially software products. Weighing only 6Kg (14 pounds) it is the kind of instrument you easily carry with you and really will not notice. Until you plug it in.
