Nord Electro 3 HP Hammer Action Stage Keyboard + FREE Nord Soft Case For Electro 3 HP Bundle
73-key Hammer Action portable stage keyboard + FREE soft case
The Nord Eletro 3 HP is the first Nord Electro with a Hammer Action keyboard and all the award-winning features of the original Nord Electro 3, like the compatibility with Nord's acclaimed Nord Piano and Nord Sample Libraries including the exclusively licensed Mellotron and Chamberlin sounds, the tonewheel and transistor modeling of the Nord C1 Organ and Rotary speaker simulation.
With 4 dynamic curves, there's a keyboard response for every personal style, and the new selectable Long Release add a nice touch when playing legato parts. Nord have also added a flexible new Delay Effect with tap-tempo, rate, amount and a stereo Ping-Pong mode.
The number of Live Locations has been increased from 1 to 4, giving you greater freedom to experiment with new sounds and settings on the go that are automatically saved. Program access is now much easier, requiring fewer buttons to push to find specific programs. The new Electro 3 HP gives acoustic and electric piano lovers a brilliant new keyboard that works great for organ playing styles.
The Nord Electro 3 HP is compatible with the Nord Piano Library, a continuously expanding sound library filled with amazing grand pianos, uprights, vintage electric pianos, clavinets and harpsichords. All the sounds have been carefully selected for their unique characters and deliver stunning realism thanks to state of the art multisampling techniques and String Resonance, providing you with an unprecedented expressiveness. The sounds are included on the Nord Piano Library DVD and can also be downloaded for free in the Nord Piano Library section on their website.
The Electro 3 HP comes preloaded with a selection of these fine sounds. Replacing them couldn't be easier, just connect the Electro 3 to the USB port of your computer, start the Nord Sound Manager and drag and drop the desired sounds to the desired program location.
The Electro 3 HP additionally features a Long Release mode that adds a slightly longer release to Piano sounds, suitable for playing Legato Piano parts and also has a dedicated button for disabling the String Resonance feature temporarily. The growling sound and soul of a B3 is hard to replicate faithfully in a digital instrument. Sampling is definitely not an option if you want to create a living, breathing tonewheel sound. Nord have spent years perfecting their digital models and the Electro 3 HP contains their award winning second generation tonewheel model.
The attention to minute details is stunning, the Electro 3 HP is even equipped with four selectable tonewheel modes, that stretches from a clean sound to battered unit with the most dramatic setting Vintage 3. This setting even produces a sound in the background of its own, even if you don't touch any keys. Every function in a B3 has been considered and examined in great detail, to make the Electro 3 HP as true to the original sound as possible. There are key clicks derived from the original busbar behaviour and the energy robbing that produces the gentle compression when you do that massive palm smear across the keyboard. To get the response right, Nord have included the option to trigger the organ sounds at the very top of a key's range, making it react just as fast as the original.
The Farfisa and Vox models are just as impressive as the B3. The massive savage sound created by their 12-top oscillator frequency-divider designs is, of course, another nosample zone in the Electro 3 HP. You get the same behaviour and unique response from these models as in the original instruments. The Farfisa Compact Deluxe, considered by many to be the mother of transistor organs, involves routing matrixes and complex filter combinations that offer a tailored sound with massive energy and high-end.
The Vox Continental's brute design brings you a more hollow tone, but with a very intense character. Both these transistor organs have their own unique, irreplaceable personalities. Combine them with any of the Electro 3 HP's speaker simulations, add some distortion, adjust the EQ and they will definitely get you through any organ gig with flying colours.
The rotary speaker simulation originates from the award winning Nord C1 Combo Organ, acclaimed for its sound quality. The rotary speaker incorporates the acoustic variations that occur when a physical speaker spreads the sound in a room, providing the full experience of when air is moved around. The Electro 3 HP's rotary also features a great function in the addition of the Rotary Stop Mode. This allows users to switch between fast and stopped rotation and back again by using either the controls on the panel or with a foot pedal connected to the Rotor Pedal input. This is a crucial functionality that mimics the behaviour of early one-speed original rotary speaker units.
The Nord Soft Case For Electro 3 HP Soft is the gig bag for rack mountable synthesizers and keyboards.
