Nord Announced Electro 5 OS Update

Nord has announce updates for the Electro 5 with fixes and a new feature enabling the use of an external expression pedal to control parameters in the split mode.

To download the Nord Electro 5 update, click here.

In MIDI upper split mode, swell and volume reacts via MIDI regardless of the 'CTRLPED on/off' setting - now you can use an external expression pedal to control the upper part whilst the internal pedal focuses on the lower part.

A debounce algorithm has also been added for switch type pedals.

The Param hint for pan/trem is now a simple 0.0 to 10.0 instead of representing the value in Hz and the memory protect function now also disables Organise.

The issue that the swell and volume weren't handled separately for upper and lower parts over MIDI has been rectified and that changing from a program with organ drawbar live enable, to a program with organ live disabled would sound like the second program had live enabled, if in set list mode has also been fixed.
