If you're looking for a professional opinion, keep lookin'.I played with the Nord Rack about a month or two ago. Ever since then, all my money has been saved so that I could purchase this beautiful piece of equipment. I was there only about 20 min. until I fell in love.The board had so many sounds that I could only dream about finding.It was so easy to use.I don't know how to export the sounds, but making them were easy.I would strongly recomend this piece of equipment if you already have your basic studio set up.It is very time consuming, not for learning how to use it, but for taking time to be "SO" creative with this unit.

This thing is tha Shiznite!!! Much more impressive than the AN1x I was contemplating. Better sonically than the Roland JP-8080, and as close to analog sounding that you can get without being analog. The only thing that it is missing is an audio input for the filters, and the noise of the real analogs. The best purchase I have made yet...

Great analog-like sounds. I say analog-like because they lack the fuzzy warmth of the older synths. However, sonically, this unit holds it's own with nearly every virtual analog unit on the market today. The 4 part multi timbral feature is very cool considering other offerings from some vendors. They even go as far as to recreate the presets from the original Prophet 5. In a mix, this thing sounds great. The ability to sync on oscillator to white noise is refreshing. The filters are very usable and musical and the EG's are capable of providing serious punch if needed. The only reason I did not give a 5 is the lack of patch and performance memory. A PCMCIA SRAM card is needed to store your own performances. Bottom line: Musical, Bold, 4 outs, 4 part multi, 16 voice poly.

Hey.... Just got the rack in the mail today! It's tiny... much smaller than I envisioned in my anxious waiting period. But I like that, it takes up no space at all yet it's extremely powerful with 16 voices and 4 multi-timbral parts and 4 individual outs. Well, everything has already been said about it on the Nord 2 keyboard comments page, and the rack is identical except it lacks the wheel and the pitch stick. This thing is like some kind of ultra-toy (ahem, ultra -expensive- toy): all small with tons of little green lights and rubber knobs all over the place. So far my comments are that it does indeed sound great. Not very thick, fat, warm and all those other sought after (and overrated) qualities of the original analogues. Let's face it, it's not going to do classic Roland pads (thank god, I'm sick of tose - they'll only do so much for you!). But it has i.m.h.o. a better raw tone/ timbre/ basic sound than the JP8000 (which I had but sold in order to get this thing). It's nice and gritty and agressive sounding, in the most pleasing and satisfying way. It -does- sound like a -real- synthesizer: electronic, spacy, grinding and nicely artificial. And the filters are indeed, as was rumored by certain reviewers on this very site, very smooth. Smoother than the JP's to be sure (my old JP8000 must hate me, for I spend much time putting it down - sorry!). It's design is stylish, beautiful, cute and extremely logical, all at once. Big, big ups to the Swedes for their excellent engineering and design. It's a refreshing alternative to the Japanese designs. Well, I will report back a while from now to give the longevity report. I can tell you right now though that I'm very optimistic...
