Simply, the synth to beat. The past few years has seen the best and worst of analogue modeling beats. I've had mine since it's release, late 1997 and it remains my flag ship. Syncable noise allows you to create some of the creamiest mid tones imaginable. No matter what genre, the Nord will deliver.. However, be advised, the Nord is not a friendly creature, in that it behaves a lot like a true analogue synth. Some days you will create the most impressive sounds..others well - it would do some good to understand subtractive synthesis.

This is one lovely synthesizer! I bought mine just a week ago, brand new and amazingly designed. I love the tree-pitch bend and the all-metal modulation wheel. But most importantly, the sound is LOVELY! Using it multi-timbrally, it's easy to get the most important sounds in a track from it; drums, bass, pad and a weird lead (or so). Although it's only got 16 voices, I've not yet encountered any problems when doing rather dense arrangements. I just wish I could spend more time with it. I've got an expanded JV-1080, too, and they complement each other perfectly. I couldn't have bought a better keyboard synth to my setup.

Just a few days ago I spent an hour and a half comparing the Nord Lead 2 to the JP-8000. Both sound excellent, the Nord wins out in my opinion for a bit edge-ier character. A little less polite than the JP8000 and seemed a bit more original. Also, the Nord has 4 assignable outs, perhaps one to go with each instrument. The JP only had a pair of stereo outs. I prefer the look of the red keyboard as well. The Roland has that great Roland chorus, the Nord has no effects, but with those outs, just run them through a few boss stomp boxes? Also, the MIDI implementation seems a little better on the Nord2.

Regardless of whether it sounds analog or not, it DOES sound good and just the amount of people using it should tell you that its not crap. Its what you do with it that counts.

Well, pretty weak anymore.. the filters sound downright cheesy next to a Q or even a Supernova. Adequate VA, I'de say. Nothing more, or less.
