Nord Wave 2 Synthesizer Keyboard

The Nord Wave 2 is a powerful 4-part performance synthesizer combining Virtual Analog synthesis, Samples, FM and Wavetable with an intuitive layer-focused interface. With 48 voice polyphony, innovative performance features and hands-on controls, the Nord Wave 2 offers outstanding sonic possibilities with advanced layering and tweaking on the fly. With 4 independent synthesizers in one the Nord Wave 2 offers exceptional possibilities for layering both classic waveforms and samples.

Dedicated OLED displays for Program and Oscillator sections provide an excellent overview when shaping your sounds. The wide range of performance features and instantly tweakable hands-on effects makes the Wave 2 Nord's most versatile performance synthesizer ever.

Monitor mode

The new Monitor mode displays your settings for Amp Envelope and Filters in the Program display for better overview and control.

LAYER SECTION

The Wave 2 features a Program Layer section with faders for easily controlling the volume or pan for all 4 layer parts at once. The Layer section also provides handy features for quick layer focus, pan control, solo and multi-editing.

Group Mode

The new Group feature allows you to group 2, 3 or 4 layers and lets them share the same Filter, Envelope, Arpeggiator, LFO and Effect-settings - perfect when creating complex multi-layered sounds that can be edited as one coherent sound.

OSCILLATOR SECTION

The Oscillator section for each of the 4 layers offers 4 modes: Analog, Wavetable, FM and Samples and is easily browsed with Nord's new direct category mode. The Oscillator Control features additional control over shape, sync or detune.

Oscillator categories

Analog: an extensive range of waveforms from classic analog to extended, harmonically rich new additions.
- Basic: Saw, Pulse, Pulse Width, Sine, Square with basic tuning controls.
- Shape: Waveforms where Osc Control will alter the Shape of the waveform
- Multi: 2 or more waveforms combined where the Osc Control will adjust amount of detune and spread
- Sync: Soft and Hard synced configurations, where Osc Control controls Sync Frequency
- Noise: White noise
- Samples: include high-quality samples from the Nord Sample Library 3.0 as well as the possibility to add your own custom samples using the Nord Sample Editor 3. Use the embedded sample presets for instantly playable dynamic sounds or sculpt your own sound from scratch with the "Raw Samp" mode
- Wavetable: A large number of advanced wavetables covering a wide range of tonal characteristics.
- FM 2, 3 and 4 operator configurations with harmonic and inharmonic variations.
- Dedicated OLED Display for visualization of waveforms
