Nord Piano 5 88-Key Stage Piano

88-key stage piano equipped with dual piano engines, dual sample synths and twice the memory of the previous generation with a combination of a premium Triple Sensor keybed and exclusive Virtual Hammer Action Technology

MFR# AMS-NPIANO5-88

Product Description

The latest edition of award-winning Piano series, the Nord Piano 5, is equipped with dual piano engines, dual sample synths and twice the memory of the previous generation. With the combination of a premium Triple Sensor keybed and exclusive Virtual Hammer Action Technology, the portable Nord Piano 5 delivers an exceptional playing experience.

PERFORMANCE

The Piano and Sample Synth sections of the Piano 5 each contain two independent Layers. The two Pianos and two Sample Synths can be used simultaneously in a variety of split or Layer configurations. Combined with the versatile effects routing, a wide range of combinations can be achieved - from classic ensemble settings to rich soundscapes. The LED equipped Level controls allow for quick and precise balancing of all Layer volume levels. A Volume Pedal and/or Sustain Pedal can be assigned to each Layer.

The Nord Piano 5 has dedicated dials and buttons for full hands-on control during a live performance. Transposing, setting up a split point or creating a layered sound can be accomplished instantly.

The Nord Piano 5 features seamless transitions for glitch free changing of sounds or programs while playing.

PIANO SECTION

The Nord Piano 5 factory bank contains 9 Grands, 9 Uprights, 10 Enhanced Electric Pianos, Clavinet, Digital Pianos, Marimba, Vibraphone and much more from the exclusive Nord Piano Library - all carefully selected for their unique character! Nord’s state-of-the-art sampling technology capture the extraordinary nuances and real character of the source instruments. The exclusive Nord Piano Library is regularly updated with unique world class sounds, and always free of charge. All sounds are easily replaced using the Nord Sound Manager.

Nord's unique Virtual Hammer Action Technology in conjunction with the physical hammer movements delivers outstanding authenticity and dynamic response resulting in a keyboard action that handles dynamic playing with amazing control at any velocity level. The Triple Sensor keybed also provides authentic features like repeating a note without lifting the key completely to ensure the smooth repetitions and fluent transitions associated with an acoustic Grand Piano.

The triple sensor keybed has added weight for improved dynamic control providing authentic Piano touch and feel. Each individual keybed is meticulously calibrated at the Nord factory to ensure an even response over the whole range.

Nord's unique Advanced String Resonance accurately reproduces the complex interplay of the piano strings and also adds the rich ambience of a real piano when playing with the pedal down. The Nord Triple Pedal includes Soft and Sostenuto Pedals in addition to a unique Dynamic Sustain Pedal. The Triple Pedal also enables the Pedal Noise feature that dynamically simulates the mechanical sounds of lifting and releasing the damper mechanism.

The dedicated piano filters provide an additional level of sonic control, accentuating softness, mid or brilliance for the acoustic uprights and grands. The electric pianos have tailored filters that even include emulations of the legendary Dyno preamp. A Soft Release-mode adds a slightly longer release, more suitable for legato playing, emulating a looser damper tension in an acoustic or an electromechanical instrument. 3 dynamic curves are available to suit your playing style, from heavy to light.

SAMPLE SYNTH SECTION

The Sample Synth Section contains a completely reworked selection of high quality sounds from the Nord Sample Library including exclusively licensed sounds from the legendary Mellotron and Chamberlin as well as a selection of samples from the Symphobia and Swing! libraries by ProjectSAM. All sounds can be quickly replaced using the Nord Sound Manager . You can also create your own sample instruments using the unique free Nord Sample Editor software for Mac and Windows.

The Sample Synth section provides two fully-featured and independent Layers and is equipped with intuitive controls for attack, decay/release and dynamic velocity response. The Soft and Bright Timbre settings provide a quick way of shaping the tone of the sound.

The Sample Synth Section has a brand Unison feature that creatively blends several sample voices for rich, ensemble-like sounds. It also features a “Tru-Vibrato” that accurately models the unique vibrato characteristics of a wide variety of wind, brass and string instruments. Three delay settings optimized for both acoustic instruments and analog synth sounds are available.

EFFECT SECTION

The Effect section has a wide selection of instantly tweakable high quality stereo effects modelled after classic stomp boxes. An effect can be assigned freely to any layer in the Piano and Sample Synth section.

  • Mod 1 - Pan, Tremolo, Wah-wah and Ring Modulator - all controllable with a Control Pedal
  • Mod 2 - Phaser, Flanger, Chorus, Vibe effect and two selectable depths for each effect
  • Delay - Stereo delay effect with Tap Tempo button and Ping Pong mode, can be assigned globally to all four Layers
  • Equalizer - Three band EQ, with sweepable mid that can be assigned globally to all four Layers
  • Compressor/Amp - Twin, JC, Small, Compressor and a Tube Overdrive effect
  • Reverb section with five different sizes (Booth, Room, Stage, Hall and Cathedral) for adding ambience to your sounds; Bright and Dark modes allows for enhanced or reduced treble; Chorale option adds a lush modulation effect

Connect an optional expression pedal for hands free control of volume and effects.

Connect a second Nord keyboard or any other audio source to the rear panel Monitor Input and play along a track without worrying about an external mixer or a sound system. The signal will be monitored through the headphone output.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
