The Nord Electro 4 features the B3 tone wheel organ engine from the flagship Nord C2D and includes a redesigned Key Click simulation as well as the Rotary Speaker simulation of a vintage 122 unit with a great new overdrive. The percussion model has been improved to offer increased control over the percussion levels when playing near-legato. Naturally, the vibrato and chorus scanners have been carefully modeled to be just as alive as the tone wheels.
The Farfisa and Vox models are just as impressive as the B3, simulating the behavior and unique response of the original instruments. The Farfisa Compact Deluxe, considered by many to be the mother of transistor organs, involves routing matrixes and complex filter combinations that offer a tailored sound with massive energy and high-end.
The Vox Continental's brute design brings you a more hollow tone, but with a very intense character. Both these transistor organs have their own unique, irreplaceable personalities. Combine them with any of the Amp simulations, add some distortion, adjust the EQ and they will definitely get you through any organ gig with flying colors.
The Nord Electro 4 SW73 organ section sports Digital LED Drawbars.
The organ can be split, for compact dual manual action and its even possible to assign the lower manual to a second MIDI keyboard. Inputs for a Swell pedal and Rotary Speaker control are also available.
The Nord Electro 4 SW73 comes loaded with a selection of amazing sounds from the Nord Piano Library - a specialized library for Grand, Upright and Electrical Pianos, Clavinet and Harpsichords.
All the sounds have been recorded using 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 is simply a matter of dragging and dropping files in the Nord Sound Manager for Mac and Windows.
The Long Release feature is suitable for legato playing styles and the String Resonance (Gen 1) feature on Grand and Upright Pianos can be turned off when desired.
- Nord Electro 4 SW73 features 380 MB of memory for the Nord Piano Library
- Nord Electro 4 SW73 also features 4 selectable dynamic response curves for customizing the keyboard response to your playing style.
Nord Sample Library and Sample Editor
The Nord Electro 4 series support the Nord Sample Library, giving you access to exclusively licensed Mellotron and Chamberlin sounds and a wide selection of quality sounds from leading sample producers. The Nord Sample library is updated on a regular basis and all new additions can be downloaded for free!
The included Nord Sample Editor makes it possible to add any sound you want to your Electro 4. The Sample Editor can use audio files in the .wav format and has great tools to assist you in getting the results you want. Mapping several samples across the keyboard or creating seamless loops has never been easier.
The Electro 4 SW73 features 128 MB of memory dedicated to the Nord Sample Library. Nord's efficient, lossless compression algorithm makes it possible to fit samples up to three times the size compared to standard linear sample players.
The Nord Electro 4 Effect section features great, tweakable effects for instantly adding some dirt, glimmer or atmosphere to your sound.
The Amp/Speaker simulation now features the same Vintage 122 Rotary Speaker simulations as found in Nord's flagship organ, Nord C2D. Also, there's a flexible Stereo Delay effect with Tap-Tempo and Ping-Pong mode.
- Effect 1 - Pan, Tremolo, Auto-wah (stereo)
- Effect 2 - Phaser, Flanger and Chorus (stereo)
- Delay - Stereo delay effect with Tap Tempo button and Ping-Pong mode
- Three band EQ, with sweepable mid
- Compressor/Amp - Twin, JC, Small, Rotary and Compressor
- Reverb with five algorithms - Room, Stage Soft, Stage, Hall, Hall Soft
Semi Weighted Waterfall (SW)
This keybed type uses semi weighted organ type keys with a rounded "waterfall" tip, brilliant for rapid organ shredding and synthesizer licks, but also plays nice with piano sounds.
Key range F-F.
The Fatar keybed is meticulously calibrated at the Nord factory to ensure an even response over the whole range.
Changing, editing and storing presets is a breeze and there are also 4 Live memory locations that automatically save what you're doing. The Program memory can hold 128 different Programs, organized in 32 Pages with 4 Programs each.
All Nord instruments have dedicated knobs and buttons for all vital functions to keep the interface simple and easy to use during a performance. Functions only accessible through menus are printed on the panel for easy overview.
