The Nord Lead 2 is an excellent synthesizer! It has a character similar to a Prophet 5, but I prefer the Nord! The filter is warm, the EG is VERY fast (do you know the song Luvstruck...?) and the looks are great. The Nord Lead 2 is a modern legend. I will never sell it.

A decent 'board, but fairly limited in the oscilattor section - would have been nice to have a couple more waveforms and a third oscillator. The build is solid, and it's likely to last a long time. It's not very impressive, but then again, most virtual analogs aren't. It does the job well enough, but it could be better. I guess that's why there's a Nord Lead 3.

When you buy the Nord Lead 2, remember- DO NOT buy it for bass sounds. It is called the Nord "Lead" afterall. It has cool squelchy bass, but no deep full bass sounds (like eg. the Roland JP-8000).

However, the lead sounds are AWESOME.

I kinda wish it did have a dodgy built in effects processor though- not for recording, but just for playing around without having to run it through my system.

Just got it a couple of days ago and I can't stop playing with it. The sound has much more character than the Q or the Virus, although the routing possibilities are somewhat limited. However, this makes it very easy to make patches (just use knobs and buttons, no real menus). You can also make any parameter velocity dependent with one button. Although it lacks effects, there is a "unison" mode which can be used in polyphonic or monophonic modes (it'll decrease the polyphony in polyphonic mode) that adds detuned stereo separation. Personally, I'm glad they didn't try to stick on onboard effects. A delay might have been nice, but most other effects on synths are crappy compared to what you can get in a dedicated effects unit for a couple hundred bucks. The one thing that the nord lead 2 is lacking is the capability to make deep, full sounding basses. But that's why I have a Prophecy...
