this thing is less of a synth and more kin to software modular environments like reaktor and max/msp.

it kills any other VA, hands down, because you can customize to your heart's content.

it is amazing for controlling other synths via midi.

as a sound-processor, again, it kills most other plugins and fx boxes, because of the amount of customization you can do.

as far as a comparison between max/msp, reaktor, and the nord g2, it's apples and oranges, but worth reading up about.

The best synth I have ever used period.

The sound is bar-non.

It truley shines & has its own voice when you are creating your own patches.

This was the last synth I bought. I purchased an Access TI... & after awile turned it in for a G2 with the expansion board & I wont look back.

Fantastic synth!! I have the Nord G2 on OSX 10.4 and it is as tight as in can be. It may seem to have a high learning curve at first but when you get the hang of things the possibilities are really endless. The interface of the editor itself is very easy too use it's knowing the modules thoroughly that is more of a challenge. The physical modelling section of this synth is really authenthic sounding. The synth itself combines various synthesis techniques that you can mix and match to your liking. I would think of this synth as a thoroughbred work horse synth that can handle anything thrown to it because of it's complexity.

It is definitely one of the most complex at the moment but it is not a perfect synth. Don't let the 32 voice advertising fool you. yes it has 32 voices but everytime you add a module it eats up a percentage or a specific number of voices so the more complex your patches are the less voices you really have. Which makes the voice expansion card a must buy because it is quite addictive making complex patches and before you know it you voices are really down. If you could get the G2 w/ the voice exp or G2X you might find that it might just be the only thing you require for your synth needs.

I have the G2X, and if I had to sell my whole studio and keep only one piece of equipment, this would be the one I'd keep. I love this synthesizer. It's such a great experience to have it be that when you turn a knob on the keyboard the knob turns in the editor patch immediately, right out of the box. No problems with setup on an XP system. It's a very rsponsive keyboard, and extremely versatile synth, and a joy to program and creat sounds with. If you're thinking about buying one, don't hesitate. You will not regret buying this synth.

I have the Nord G2 and it is fantastic. It can be really quick to program a basic patch, or you can take your time and make things super-complex. It can be as simple or as complex as you want it to be, but it does reward the waork you put into it.
