The Nord Stage 2 series have similar features apart from the keyboard. Part of what sets the Stage 2 apart from typical performance-oriented keyboards is the impeccable attention to detail in its extensive collection of sounds, keybed and control. Armed with twice the program memory of its predecessor, the widely popular Stage EX, the Stage 2 has the bandwidth to include subtitles such as string resonance, dynamic pedal noise and new Piano Release function, and is compatible with the new Nord v5 Piano library, maximizing the range of available sounds. The all-new Piano Release function once activated, you will get a slightly longer release more suitable for legato playing. This important feature reflects adjusting the damper tension in an acoustic or an electromechanical instrument. Likewise, the new Gen 3 organ is simply astonishing! The Stage 2 also features 380MB of on-board sample memory and with the Sample Manager users can also create their own bespoke sound setups, adding endless depth to its synth sound section. The Synth section also features a new powerful arpeggiator that can be easily synced to the Stage 2’s Master Clock for perfect timing with other elements of the Stage 2, including its effect. On top of all of these the Nord Stage 2 also features an even more extensive effects section than ever before.
Additionally, the Stage 2 control panel and user interface have been designed to give immediate access to all of the key functions, and users are able to quickly and easily see exactly what they have selected. All vital functions are controlled by dedicated single-function knobs – dedicated piano, organ and synthesizer sections and new Live Mode buttons. And when you feel the texture and response of the new custom-designed keybed, you will have no doubt that this keyboard is made for professional keyboardist. If you are looking for the ultimate live keyboard, you are going to love the user-friendly Nord Stage 2, an instrument that offers huge expandability.
