We heard rumours of a Nord Lead 4 as we approached MESSE time, so off we tromped to the Clavia stand to have a word, and you know what â€“ the rumours are true â€“ although itâ€™s not called the NL4 but the Nord Wave. This is on account of it having greatly extended the oscillator waves with the inclusion of samples as sources. They can be simple waveform samples or multi-samples user or Clavia supplied which are then fed into the NW subtractive synthesis engine and effects.
Details are sketchy â€“ we couldnâ€™t get a price yet â€“ but it will be available later this year (May they hope). In the meantime â€“ enjoy the video.
