If you truely enjoy the sound of an analog synth, you must believe there are few

instruments left in the world today that sound as genuine. The Nord has probably

been the best purchase I have made yet when it comes to synthesizers. Despite

the limited multitimbral capabilities, (4 parts only), which I consider to be a

problem, the Nord has many functions. I absolutely love the syncable LFO 1 and

the arpeggiator likewise. Many of the sounds it produces are reminiscent of my

old Chroma Polaris synth, reminding me of my childhood and hence, of Vail

Colorado where I lived for a short time during the mid 80s. The Nord is

practicaly a trouble-free synth of pure emotional warmth. Its tonality can be so

enveloping and pacifying! That is, to me, the most important characteristic

being that I write new age and electronic retro sounding music. It also has the

greatest pitch bender and modulation wheel to be found. That sums it up for me.

Again, as in my review of the Fender Chroma Polaris, hello to all of my very old

friends from Vail!- Kevin, Clarke, Allison, Paul, Diana, and Murph. (Not that I

think any of you will ever see this.) Feel free to e-mail me.

My band BurnCycle Rv.2 loves the red guy so much we bought 3! The Nord Lead synth,

rack, &amp; the Nord 2. If you're buying one new, pick-up the Nord 2. It does everything

the original did &amp; more (you lose the cool corner cut though). Feel free to visit

our site:

Someone finally decided it was time to bring back the phatt-ripping hammer-analog

-I am the end all, be all overlord of the new analog age-acid grinding sound-

concussion that's been making guitar players run away screaming clutching thier

bleeding ears for dear life. God I luv that sound. Score one for Clavia. The first

time I encoutered this puppy was at an H&amp;H music store. I saw this ugly red thing

in the corner and didn't give it much thought until I heard some of the staff fire

it up and I came a'runnin. Eventually they had to pry me off of it when they closed

the shop. I have no qualms about it other than the fact of it's lack of an effects

processor and display quality. But that is easily overlooked when you're their playing

this marvel of virtual analog synthesis. If you're looking for phunky sounds that

will spice up a bass line with a nice breakbeat, or anything for that matter, get

this puppy and play it to your hearts content. Soundwise, I'll go ahead and proclaim

the NordLead king of the new virtual analog wave.

I bought an used 4-voice NordLead here in sweden for about $1250, to use for

fat basses and strange sounds,

and compared to my two other synths (KORG Wavestation &amp; Roland JV880) it

really excels in it's area.

As I'm into industrial music, I simply LOVE the fast editing possibilities but

most of all the FAT sound of it's filters (especially the 12db/octave).

It also has the best velocity modulation options I've ever seen.
