The Nord Electro 3 is the latest addition to Clavia’s virtual electromechanical range. It’s looks similar to the two previous incarnations of Electros, but according to Nord, it is completely redesigned internally. However, on closer inspection, it’s lighter and slimmer and the front panel has altered significantly to reflect the new features. Specs-wise, the Nord Electro 3 (from here on, NE3 for short) covers similar ground to the Nord Stage. While it doesn’t have the Stage’s virtual analog synth section, it does add some load-your-own-sounds ability. The Nord Electro 3 is much lighter and more dependable than the vintage keyboards it replaces onstage.
According to several Clavia nord electro 3 reviewers, some users have praised it for the Acoustic piano sounds are vastly improved over Electro 2; Realistic-sounding virtual organs; Ability to load user samples, which are saved even with power off; Well-stocked, high-quality sound library online, including smorgasbord of Mellotron sounds. Also, some users have complained it for the No way to adjust keyboard velocity response; Still slightly in the Nord Stage’s shadow; Split keyboard only applies to organ models.
