Nord and UK distributor Sound Technology Ltd have announced that the Nord Lead A1 has begun shipping in the UK in the UK today. Here's what they have to say about it...
The Nord Lead A1 is a stunning sounding synthesizer that combines our next-generation analogue modelling with a simplified yet hugely powerful front panel interface.
Thanks to its carefully thought-out user interface, the Lead A1 encourages experimentation, allows for far speedier programming than would otherwise be possible, and ultimately delivers sensational sonic results.
The Lead A1 features a new Realtime Waveform Engine with a choice of 47 different waveforms, intelligently designed Oscillator Configuration Shortcuts to quickly combine and control two oscillators in various configurations, a modelled Filter section including modelled Ladder and Diode filters, a new Effects Section with analogue modelled effects, intuitive Modulation routing, newly designed super-fat Unison mode, unique 'Like' function for comparing variations during patch creation, and much more.
Ideal for stage or studio, the Lead A1 features 26-voice polyphony and is four-part multi-timbral. Like all Nord Keyboards the Lead A1 is handmade in Sweden with meticulous attention to detail and quality control.
