Buy a Nord Lead 2. Buy a Line6 POD. Hook them together and listen to how awesome they sound! A match made in Heaven!

The Nord Lead II is THE best virtual analog I've played on in a long time. Now that everybody is jumping on the "retro" bandwagon, each major company has realeased their own analog-type keyboard. The Nord is the real deal though--practically unlimited ways to take a waveform and warp it actually SOUNDS like an old synth, I can't say that much for Roland, Yamaha, or whoever else......if you want that real analog sound..get this machine.

Awesome Synth!! Along with this beauty I own or have owned a Prophecy, Z1, and a Jp-8000, and I must say that the NL2 sound has a much more grittier and raw IN YOUR FACE sound which I love! Out of all the synths I've owned I like the NL2 the best! Certainly give it a look if your looking into buying a VA synth, and don't let the fact that it has no efx mark it out of the question. Listen carefully and let your ears decide.....

what can I say! amazing! sound quality, control, midi capability, all above par. Maybe the newer ones will ahve more routing options and waveforms..but one cannto really complain at all about this VA. Add an external fx box and this synth will go nuts.

Thank the heavens for allowing someone to finally get it right. I'm a sound designer for 12 years now and have finally found 1 of the most versitile, easilly programable sound tools to date. Great sounding oscillators,tunable right down to the foundations & beyond. I've owned 3 Prophets (5,10,&T8) and have sat down with colleagues and actually compared the little red bastard w/ the real things. My God!! Sounds almost identical.....I mean 99 out of 100 percent identical. Lets face it, the only thing that actually 'shapes' sound on a board is the filter, otherwise a square wave will be a square wave and a sawtooth will be a sawtooth. If you passed a Nord squarewave through a Mini-Moog filter it would sound like like a Mini.....and if I'm not mistaken you can BUY the famous 24/db filter through Big Briar. You dig? And it didnt stop there, The nord can go where no other synths I've worked with have ever gone before. I like the idea that it has absence off effects so you dont hear candied-up sounds and think< "Wow!!! All that sound is comming from the Oscillator and the filter!!!????" I mean who uses keyboard effects to record with anyway, Just imagine the immense sound of a Nord or Prophet or a Moog through an effects processor such as the TC Fireworx.....Catch my drift? Some insane sounding SHIT that'll melt your monitors like the 'Wicked Witch' in Oz. I hate when I go to the showroom to see some new boards w/ a freind and they'll have a Nord next to a Waldorf Q which has effects and my freind who must have Shit in his ears says"OooH! Listen to how cool the Q sounds". It seems that people forgetjust how cool effects make EVERYTHING sound. Anyways the only 'digital' hybryd synth that even comes close if not more programmable would certainly be the Access Virrus, And the only reason I say more is because Access is a company that took the Nords great sounding synthesis and added more routing and actually usable effects to it and 8 more parts multi-timbral... Both of these machines belt out some amazingly sweet and ferocious sounds just like the real deals.
