New performance features
The Nord Electro 6 includes a range of new features and enhancements designed to provide you with the most powerful and flexible Electro available. The Electro 6 now features 3 part multi-timbral and seamless transitions when switching between sounds or programs while playing, providing you with more speed and no load times when performing. A new simplified, streamlined user interface and program section features a convenient Organize mode, which includes copy/paste and move functionality that allows you to quickly arrange your programs in the order you want.
The new Page View enables you to easily sort and organize pages as a song list. The updated layer and advanced split functionality allows you to use the 3 independent sound sections simultaneously as a layer or a split. It features 6 split points and the new Split Point Crossfade functionality that offers smooth transitions between the 2 split zones. You can also choose between 3 different crossfade widths.
High-quality organ simulations
The Organ section now includes 2 new Pipe Organ Models, providing you with a pure organ with a few harmonics, and a recreation of metal pipes that commonly make up the backbone of a pipe or church organ, with a new special detune mode when enabling vibrato/chorus. The Electro 6 also features Nord's C2D Organ simulations of the B3 Tonewheel and the Vintage Transistor Organ, as well as the vintage 122 Rotary Speaker simulation. The new Dual Organ mode allows you to quickly access dual manual setups, offering an ideal overview and control of the drawbar settings for both the Upper and Lower manual. The Electro 6 HP model features LED Drawbars.
Acoustic, electric and digital pianos
The Electro 6 offers 1GB of acoustic, electric and digital pianos from Nord's exclusive piano library. It now features expanded polyphony and new creative piano filters for shaping the tone of the piano. The new 'layer' category offers a range of rich, dynamic layered patches for you to experience and play with. Thanks to Nord's advanced sampling techniques, they manage to capture the extraordinary nuances and real character from the source instruments.
The unique 'Advanced String Resonance' feature offers unbelievable realism and a huge level of expressiveness that dedicated pianists will enjoy. The new creative piano filters provide an additional level of sonic control, allowing you to shape the softness, mid, or brightness to your preference. You can also add and replace any of the piano sounds using the Nord Sound Manager. The exclusive Nord Piano Library is constantly being updated with new unique sounds, all for free.
Sample synth collection
The Electro 6 features an enhanced Sample Synth section that now offers 512MB memory (double from Electro 5), expanded polyphony, attack and decay/release control and dynamic control. The Sample Synth section includes a wide range of high-quality sounds from the Nord Sample Library 3.0, which also features exclusive licensed sounds from the legendary Mellotron and Chamberlin. With the free Nord Sample Editor software for Windows and Mac, you can create your own samples and also control the envelopes and dynamics.
Powerful effects section
Nord Electro 6 offers a powerful and versatile Effects section, with every effect coming in stereo. All effects are modelled after classic stomp boxes, and can be assigned to any of the Organ, Piano or Synth sections. It offers a range of different effects for texturing and enhancing your sounds, with the option for tweaking. Included are tremolo, phaser, chorus, pan, wah, RM, flanger, vibe, and reverb. The reverb now features a new bright mode. This allows you to create a much brighter, shimmery reverb.
