Nord Piano Library
The Nord Piano 3 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.
Replacing the sounds is simply a matter of dragging and dropping files in the Nord Sound Manager for Mac and Windows.
Nord Triple Pedal
The Nord Triple Pedal features Soft and Sustenuto Pedals in addition to a unique Dynamic Sustain Pedal enabling the use of half-pedaling and “release and catch” techniques.
Nord Piano 3 features Nord's most advanced implementation of String Resonance, reproducing the intricate interplay of piano strings resonating at their fundamental or harmonic frequencies when other notes are played on our Upright and Grand piano sounds.
When used with the Nord Triple Pedal, Pedal Noise recreates the mechanical sounds of lifting and releasing the damper mechanism, producing the characteristic thomp and sizzle sounds. The Pedal Noise feature responds dynamically to the force/momentum used when pressing or releasing the pedal.
The Long Release feature is suitable for legato playing styles and can be turned off when desired.
The Sample Synth section lets you play sounds from the extensive Nord Sample Library - containing over 1000 quality sounds from leading sample producers as well as the exclusively licensed sounds of the Mellotron and Chamberlin. The Sample Synth section has dedicated knobs for adjusting the attack and release and volume of the selected sound.
Nord Sample Editor
With the included software Nord Sample Editor you can even create your own sample instruments. Load your .WAV files, assign them to keys on the keyboard and transfer them to the Nord Piano 3 to play them instantly. The Nord Sample Editor can also assist you in looping and mapping your sounds.
Play, Split & Layer
Setting up a layer or split has never been easier and the volume of the Sample Synth can be controlled separately with an optional Volume Pedal - great for sneaking in those strings. The Sample Synth section can even be set to either ignore Sustain or use the sostenuto pedal on the Nord Triple Pedal as separate sustain for advanced layering possibilities.
The Nord Piano 3 has an extensive Effect section with great, tweakable effects. Each effect section can be assigned to either the Piano or the Sample Synth section and lets you instantly add some dirt, glimmer or atmosphere to your sound.
The Effects include classic modulation effects modeled after vintage stomp-boxes, a stereo delay, a 3-band EQ, amp simulations of vintage tube amps, a compressor and a master reverb.
The Nord Piano 3 has dedicated knobs and buttons for all vital functions a player needs in a performance situation. Transposing, setting up a split point or creating a layered sound is accomplished in seconds. There are 240 locations, organized in 2 banks with 24 pages with 5 programs each. The Nord Piano 3 also has 5 Live locations that automatically save the current settings - ideal as a sketching pad at rehearsals when trying out new sound combinations in the search of the perfect sound.
