The Nord Piano Experience
The Nord Stage 3 features a wide selection of Grands, Uprights, Electric Pianos, Digital Pianos, Clavinet and Harpsichord from our exclusive Nord Piano Library - all handpicked for their unique characters! The Nord Stage 3 Piano section also features a brand new 'Layer' category with rich dynamic layered patches. Nord’s state-of-the-art sampling techniques capture the extraordinary nuances and real character of the source instruments. Our unique ‘Advanced String Resonance’ and Dynamic Pedal Noise features deliver breathtaking realism and an unsurpassed level of expressiveness.
The Nord Stage 3 Organ section features our award winning Nord C2D organ including the extremely authentic B3 Tonewheel simulation with four different tone wheel settings, ranging from factory new clean to leaky old vintage.
Vintage Rotary Speaker: The Nord Stage 3 features 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 122 Rotary Speaker simulation is available on each slot and can also be used with the Piano or Synth section
The Lead A1 Synth Engine is renowned for its analog-modelling warmth, and utilises brilliant Smart Oscillator Configurations to deliver stunning results with little programming. There are both Single oscillator setups including Pitch and Shape modes, and Dual oscillator setups including Detune, Sync, Waveform, Bell and Noise Mix modes, FM and Ring Mod. The Synth section also provides 3 Unison modes, without reducing voice polyphony.
The Nord Stage 3's new Oscillator section features 5 oscillator categories: Classic, Wave, Formant, Sample and brand new Super Wave (S-wave).
The Nord Stage 3 Effect section features a brand new Filter Effect, extended morphable parameters, an enhanced Delay effect and a separate Reverb and Compressor for each slot.
The powerful Effect section features a wide range of instantly tweakable high quality effects all modeled after classic stomp boxes, all available for each slot
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.

Really excellent organ and electric piano sounds. The acoustic piano sound is the best I've heard from an onboard keyboard (Some Kontakt plugins can still beat it). I bought the HX3 DBC Drawbar Controller and affixed it near the left edge of the keyboard using velcro strips, so I can have a nice physical drawbar feel. I was almost considering buying the new electro instead because of its physical drawbars, but the stage 3 with the HX3 works great and I'm glad I made the choice I did.
The synth section leaves something to be desired -- mostly too many long list- and menu-oriented controls, it's not really amenable to any kind of real-time tone design, and I still find it pretty hard to navigate to what I want. It's fine if you know that on this song you want such-and-such piano and then you want to switch to this predetermined synth sound; what I have trouble with is, as I'm playing I've got some particular organ that I have tweaked my way into over the course of the song, and I want, for example, a lead synth in my right hand while keeping the organ patch on my left. It is *doable* to set a split point on the fly (which is pretty impressive), maybe about 4 button clicks away, but then finding the right lead synth from the synth section, instead of stored in a "main patch" (which would change the whole configuration, wiping out my organ) is hard enough that I can't really attempt anything like that. Anyway, in the studio the synth section is fine, I've designed some pretty cool patches.
Also the pitch bend knob is the best in the business, I can't stand those standard wheel knobs anymore -- you can actually get some decent sounding expression and vibrato out of this one.
So yeah, Nord is pwning the keyboard market right now, and they deserve it.
This is a really great keyboard. There is so much to know that it takes a while to learn, but you get comfortable with the basic functions pretty quickly and can easily program some useful sounds for regular use. But allow yourself lot of time to explore the limits of the synth and organ sections.
The mod-wheel is extremely handy and can be assigned to almost any function; it is very useful for organs and volume control in a live performance. The piano section has so many great options that each convey a different sound and feel -- you'll always find something to fit the song.
The compact 73-key is perfect for mobility and the semi-weighted keys are wonderful to play. I kept my Yamaha fully-weighted hammer action for days when I "must" play some classical or need that authentic piano feel. The Nord is so much fun and sounds so great though, that the absence of the hammer action is not an issue at all. In fact, I purchased this keyboard specifically because it did not have hammer action keys to get the benefit of the lighter weight keyboard since I lug it around to and from my house 4-5 times per month.
The only negative comment I must leave is that Amazon really struggled to deliver this product unscathed. The first one I bought (from PitBull Audio and fulfilled by Amazon) came looking like the box had fallen off the conveyor belt somewhere along the line, and the keyboard had an enormous dent in the red wooden siding and some kind of plastic rattling around on the inside. That one was promptly returned, with ease (thank you Amazon) and I re-purchased from the same seller, again fulfilled by Amazon. The second one came double-boxed but the instrument still had a minor scuff on one of the wooden sides (unbelievable!). I don't know if these are a B-list/refurbished items sold by PitBull Audio or just poor quality control. All in all, it seemed like it was just too much to ask between PitBull Audio, Amazon Fulfillment and UPS 2-day logistics to properly handle this item with due care.
I decided to keep the second keyboard and haven't had any problems with it after nearly three months, and I'm keeping my review at five stars as a review of the Nord keyboard's performance, independent of the distributor/resellers involved and despite the scuffed wooden siding.
