With that many typical Nord red keyboards you see on live stages and in studio setups you may wonder how much they can improve on a 4th version of a keyboard player oriented board for playing organs, piano’s, EP’s and whatnot. The new Nord Electro 4 series feature everything from the award winning Electro 3 series, adding the acclaimed new Nord C2D tone wheel engine and 122 Rotary Speaker simulation, USB MIDI and more! There are three models in the Electro 4 range. The 4D SW61 and SW73 offer waterfall keyboards with 61 and 73 keys respectively, while the 4HP incorporates a hammer-action 73-key unit.
According to several Nord Electro 4 reviewers, some users have praised it for the Physical drawbars; Compact, tough and portable; Great pianos, EPs, Clavs, and other vintage sounds, all expandable by Nord-supported download libraries. Also, some users have complained it for the still can’t split or layer organ with non-organ sounds—it’s one or the other; the Q factor of the mid EQ section which is too small.
