The Master Clock function makes it easy to sync effects to other elements, like the arpeggiator, LFO or even one of the other effects. You can easily lock the effect rate to a range of note values – make the delay do quarter note triplets of what arpeggiator is playing, while the LFO gently sweeps the filter up and down in half notes, all perfectly interlocked. The Master Clock can also be controlled by an external MIDI clock – perfect for syncing your parts to a backing track, including tempo changes!
The Nord Stage 3 wouldn’t be a master keyboard if it couldn’t control external devices with ease. The Extern section is designed solely for this purpose, so that any MIDI-connected gear gets seamlessly integrated with the Nord Stage 3’s built-in instruments. Zones, splits and layers are handled exactly as if the external equipment was a part of the Stage 3 itself. All settings are saved together with a Program so advanced setups can be immediately recalled in real-time during a performance. You can even use the Extern Section to automatically transmit Bank Select and Program Change messages to your external units.
Semi Weighted Waterfall (SW)
The Nord Stage 3 Compact keybed uses semi weighted organ keys with a rounded "waterfall" tip, brilliant for rapid organ shredding and synthesizer licks, but also plays nice with piano sounds. Key range E-E.
|Analog or Digital||Digital|
|Number of Keys||73|
|Polyphony||120 note piano, 34 note synth|
Best acoustic piano and organ sounds on the market, lightweight and sturdy. A bit overpriced given then limited functionality, something at this level should be 16 part multitimbral and not limited to only being able to create a couple sounds at a time, but what it does, it does really really well. I pair this with a Korg Kronos that does the heavy lifting on sounds and setups, but the Nord handles all pianos, most organs and the occasional synth sounds for me.
