Incorporating Nord's award-winning performance features and hands-on user interface the lightweight Nord Grand not only provides an extraordinary playing experience, but is also an elegant new approach to Nord's stage piano series. It is Nord's first stage piano to feature triple sensors that track the movements on the hammers rather than the keys delivering the smooth and dynamic touch of an acoustic grand.
The Nord Grand factory bank includes 10 Grands, 9 Uprights, 10 Enhanced Electric Pianos, Clavinet, Digital Pianos and more from the exclusive Nord Piano Library - all handpicked for their unique character! Nord’s state-of-the-art sampling techniques capture the extraordinary nuances and real character of the source instruments with breathtaking realism. All sounds can easily be replaced using the Nord Sound Manager. Our exclusive Nord Piano Library is constantly updated with new unique world class sounds - always free of charge.
Kawai Responsive Hammer keybed with Ivory Touch
The well balanced and responsive triple sensor keybed features an advanced mechanism that provides extraordinary control both when playing percussively or pianissimo with fluent repetitions and retriggering without lifting the keys completely. The addition of an Ivory Touch surface gives the keybed an optimal feel and authenticity.
Advanced String Resonance
Nord's unique Advanced String Resonance reproduces the intricate interplay of piano strings resonating at their fundamental or harmonic frequencies when other notes are played on our Grand and Upright piano sounds. It also adds the rich resonant ambience of a real piano when playing with pedal down.
Nord Triple Pedal with Dynamic Pedal Noise
The included Nord Triple Pedal features Soft and Sostenuto Pedals in addition to a unique Dynamic Sustain Pedal. The Triple Pedal also enables our Pedal Noise which dynamically simulates the mechanical sounds of lifting and releasing the damper mechanism.
Sample Synth Section
The extensive selection of sounds from Nord Sample Library 3.0 includes the exclusively licensed sounds of the legendary Mellotron and Chamberlin. All sounds can be quickly replaced using the Nord Sound Manager. The Sample Synth is equipped with essential controls for attack, decay/release and dynamics (filter/velocity) and dedicated Category buttons for quick navigation and selection of sample sounds. It is possible to create your own samples using the free Nord Sample Editor software for Windows and Mac.
The Nord Grand Effect section includes Tremolo, Phaser, Chorus, Pan, Wah, RM, Flanger, Vibe, EQ, Delay and Reverb. The Reverb effect has three different types Hall, Stage and Room, each with an optional Bright Mode.
Compatible with Nord Piano Monitor
The Nord Piano Monitor speakers can be connected directly to the Nord Grand (using the optional Montior Brackets) for the ultimate nearfield listening experience.
