The Nord Modular G2 was first announced at last years Messe as a new development follwing on from the Nord Modular. The new Modular G2 modular synthesizer platform focusses on live performance features. The G2 platform comes in two "parts": the hardware synthesizer and the graphical PC Patch Editor. The Nord Modular G2 features an extensive amount of powerful and exciting synthesizer building blocks that may be patched and edited from the intuitive and elegant Modular G2 Patch Editor software. Once you have created your patches in the Editor program you can store everything in the G2 synthesizer for live performance use and editing from the flexible and intuitive synth front panel.
OS and Editor V1.10 features Master/MIDI Clock Sync of LFO and Audio Delay times and number of bug fixes and improvements. With V1.10 comes also a new Factory Sound Library with new great patches and Performances (multi-patch setups). The Nord Modular G2 V1.10 Update and new Factory Sound Library can be downloaded at www.clavia.se, free of charge!
At the same time, Clavia also announces the Voice Expansion board for the G2. The Voice Expansion board makes it possible to expand the polyphony in your G2 patches to twice the original. The Voice Expansion board features four extra DSPs and RAM circuits and is very easy to install in the G2. The Voice Expansion board will also be compatible with the soon to be released rack mountable Nord Modular G2 Engine.
