The Nord Electro 4 SW73 stage piano improves on a modern classic. With pianos from the Nord Piano Library, organs from the C1, compatibility with the Nord Sample Library, and studio-grade effects, what more could Nord do to improve the venerable Electro? The Electro 4 also sports a new tone wheel engine derived from the flagship Nord C2D organ, and a revamped rotary speaker emulator. You still get 73 great-feeling semi-weighted waterfall keys and gig-friendly portability and build quality. The Nord Electro 4 SW73 is an amazing stage piano.
Play incredibly realistic and responsive organ sounds The growling sound and soul of a B3 is hard to replicate faithfully in a digital instrument. Nord has spent years perfecting their digital models, and the Electro 4 SW73 contains the best emulation so far. The attention to small details is stunning! The redesigned Key Click emulation adds an extra layer of realism to your sound, while the 122 Rotary Speaker simulation gives you swirling Leslie sounds with a great-sounding overdrive on tap too.
Organic "analog" warmth If you've ever heard keyboard whiz Derek Sherinian shred with Dream Theater, Billy Idol, or his own band Planet X, you know he's a tone meister of the highest order. Ask Mr. Sherinian what he loves about the Nord Electros, and he'll tell you it's the "organic analog warmth." Well, that and the tour-proof build quality, the ease of calling up sounds, and much more. With the Nord Electro 4 SW73, you get the warmth of analog with the road-tested reliability of a forth-gen digital machine.
Built tough for serious professional use Touring may be rough on musicians, but it's the gear that really gets thrashed. The Nord Electro 4 SW73 is built to take whatever your tour schedule can dish out, and then some. Nord builds its instruments sor serious professional use. The 4's 73-key size strikes a perfect balance, offering you two-handed playability in a light weight, maneuverable chassis.
