Another Nord Piano Demo

Jim Watson plays the Grand Upright from the Nord Piano Library      11/12/13

Following on from the demo of the Italian Grand a couple of weeks ago, Nord Keyboards and UK distributor Sound Technology have released a new video demonstrating the new Grand Upright piano added to the free Nord Piano Library.  The Grand Upright is played on a Stage 2 HA88 in this improvised performance by Jim Watson (Katie Melua, Manu Katché, and BBC Strictly Come Dancing Band).

The Nord Piano Library is a free library of expertly recorded pianos and electric pianos compatible with the Nord Stage 2, Nord Stage EX, Nord Electro 4, Nord Electro 3, Nord Piano and Nord Piano 2.

A spokesperson told us, "The Grand Upright offers a remarkably full and even sound. It has a rich, woody tone that gets a brilliant glassy bite when you lay some force into the keys. This is a rather ambient piano that sings beautifully with the sustain pedal pressed down (thanks to its huge resonant body) that makes additional reverb somewhat unnecessary. The audio in the video is recorded directly out of the Stage 2 with no external processing."
