I've owned Nord Electro keyboards since 2002 because they replicate classic keyboard sounds flawlessly. They are light weight and the build quality is superb. The Nord Electro has always been the perfect keyboard for funk, blues, rock and jazz gigs.

Hammer Action Portable Keybed
The Nord Electro 6 HP keybed uses amazingly portable weighted hammer action piano keys. Perfect for electric and acoustic piano sounds, but also works great for organ playing. Key range 6 HP: E-E.
Layer and advanced Split functionality
The panel has three independent sound sections; Organ, Piano and Sample Synth that can be used simultaneously as a layer or a split. It features 6 Split Points and the new Split Point Crossfade functionality introduced with the Stage 3 for smooth transitions between two split zones. Choose from 3 different crossfade widths (Small, Large or Off) as indicated by different LED colors.
Refined Program Section
The new streamlined Program section features a handy Organize mode including Copy/Paste and Move functionality for quickly arranging your Programs to your desired order. A new Page View lets you easily sort and organize pages as a song list.
The Nord Electro 6 features the award-winning Nord C2D Organ simulations of B3 Tonewheel, B3 Bass and Vintage Transistor Organs plus two Pipe Organ models. Each model sounds extremely authentic and provides you with enough setting and flexability to dial in that exact organ sound you are looking for.
Dual Organ Mode
The dedicated new Dual Organ mode provides quick access to dual manual setups and offers great overview and control of the drawbar settings for both the Lower and Upper manual.
Vintage Rotary Speaker Simulation
The Nord Electro 6 has the latest generation of our vintage 122 Rotary Speaker simulation adding an essential character to a live organ performance and features Slow, Fast and Stop mode as well as a Drive control. The Electro 6D 61 and 73 support the Nord Half-moon Switch (optional accessory).
The Piano section has a wide selection of acoustic, electric and digital pianos from the exclusive Nord Piano Library. Now with expanded memory, you can up load even more piano models using the Nord Sound Manager. Nord’s state-of-the-art sampling techniques capture the extraordinary nuances and real character of the source instruments and unique ‘Advanced String Resonance’ delivers breathtaking realism and an unsurpassed level of expressiveness.
Sample Synth Section
The Sample Synth Section contains a broad selection of high quality sounds from the Nord Sample Library 3.0 including the exclusively licensed sounds of the legendary Mellotron and Chamberlin. The Sample Synth Section of Electro 6 also has expanded memory and extended polyphony so you can take full advantage of all the sounds the Nord Sample Library has to offer.
The powerful Effect section features a wide range of instantly tweakable high quality effects modelled after classic stomp boxes. All effects are stereo and can be assigned freely to the Organ, Piano or Synth sections.
