On the 5th floor of the Hilton - which is the posh hotel just alongside the convention center here at the NAMM Show 2014, we had a look at the brand new Nord Lead A1 Analogue Modeling synthesizer.

New product specialist Kristoffer Ulfves took us through the new VA.

Available mid March 2014 at $1799

Sounds great, and your right Nick, worth buying just for the John Carpenter patch :-)

Always wanted a Nord, just a bit out of range, price wise.

Nick, could you tell if build quality was there? (how is keyed, metal chassis?) Hard to tell what they've skimped on, if anything in pulling this down to the mid-$1k range.

Sounds great, I already got the kingkorg for my VA syth though. But if I can afford it and find somehere to put it then I'd probably get this too!

Sounds excellent, though how are the keys? do they feel cheap and wobbly or solid and well built?

hope you can do a review on this Nick! Thanks!

That Bell like sound was cool, but I own a uQ and I have the analog-agog. They should pull an Arturia and make an analog!
