Repetitions
The Nord Virtual Hammer Action Technology enables you to produce a new note without lifting the key completely. This allows for smoother repetitions as the tone is not completely dampened between the strokes, similar to the fluent transitions possible on a Grand Piano.

Extended Triggering Range
The new keyboard technology makes both top and bottom triggering possible, resulting in amazing control when playing percussively as well as pianissimo with the keys half-pressed down.

Dynamic Release
The Virtual Hammer Action Technology also includes velocity sensitive release, dynamically dampening the sound based on how quickly you release the key.

GRAND WEIGHTED ACTION AND IVORY TOUCH NEW
The keybed has added weight for improved dynamic control and features a textured “ivory” surface, providing authentic Piano touch and feel.

The individual Fatar keybeds are meticulously calibrated at the Nord factory to ensure an even response over the whole range.

MODEL
The Nord Piano 3 features a new triple sensor keybed with Ivory touch and improved grand weighted action (A-C).

The Nord Piano 3 weighs 18,2 kg (40,7 lb) and measures 1287 mm (50.7″), 121 mm (4.8″), 340 mm (13.4″).

NORD SOUND LIBRARIES
The Nord Piano 3 features 1 GB of memory dedicated to the exclusive sounds from the Nord Piano Library carefully selected for their specific and individual character. The ever expanding Nord Piano Library is filled with uniquely sampled acoustic and electric instruments, with an outstanding range of velocity levels allowing for exceptional dynamic control.

The Factory Bank features 6 Grand Pianos, 5 Upright Pianos, 11 Electric Pianos, Clavinet and Harpsichords. Replacing the sounds in your Nord Piano 3 is simply a matter of dragging and dropping files in the Nord Sound Manager for Mac and Windows.

The Sample Synth section in the Nord Piano 3 has 256 MB memory dedicated to the Nord Sample Library 2.0 – our essential selection of high quality sampled sounds from a wide range of genres including the exclusively licensed sounds of the Mellotron and Chamberlin.

New Reason Refill from Soundcells: Nordic Red – the journey continues!

March 23, 2015 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comments Off on New Reason Refill from Soundcells: Nordic Red – the journey continues! 

unnamed

Nordic Red is a marvelleous sounding ReFill based on samples from the Nord Modular G2x synthesizer.

This ReFill pleases with “otherworldly“ atmospheric stuff, great keys, “in-your-face“ bass patches and wonderful pads when diving into this ReFill.The “self-playing“ patches (called “Noodles“ in the G2), for example, are great starting points to create some ultra-deep atmospheric textures – an ideal entry for composing film scores or game music. Or simply pitch down the samples to listen to the “hidden magic“ inside these up to 90 seconds long ‘Noodle‘ recordings.

As usual, the combinator buttons and knobs were carefully assigned to allow dramatic changes to the default sounds you´ll be hearing initially.

Nordic Red contains:
 
•  171 combinator patches.
•  192 NNXT patches containing the basic patches which were used to build the combinators
•  800+ samples, 1.65 GB uncompressed, 47 ‘self-playing‘ noodles.
•  11 demo tracks in Reason format included.
Price per unit is 27.90 ,- EUR.
This update is free for owners of any previous full version!
