Musikmesse 2018: The Latest Generation Nord Piano 4
Nord has just announced its latest stage piano, the Nord Piano 4. Fresh off the floor of Musikmesse 2018, Nord's Piano 4 expands on the popular Nord Piano 3 and takes the piano playing experience to the next level with its expanded voice polyphony, premium Triple Sensor keybed, and Nord's acclaimed Virtual Hammer Action Technology.
Only recently at Winter NAMM 2018, Nord announced the new Electro Stage 6 Piano - see our story here, NAMM 2018: Nord Electro 6 Stage Piano is the New Flagship - and it seems like they've been keen to update the popular Piano 3.
The Piano 4 features seamless transitions when changing between patches, along with layer and advanced split functionality. Up to 7 split points can be created featuring Split Point Crossfade technology, introduced in the Stage 3, for smooth transitions between the split zones.
The Piano 4 also includes a refined Organize Mode, helping you keep on track of your sounds and easily rearrange programs for live performance. A new Numeric Pad Mode also gives the ability to instantly access a program by entering its code - perfect for impromptu sound creation and rehearsals.
The Piano 4 features inherited technology from the class-leading Piano 3, including Nord's Virtual Hammer Action Technology, Advanced String Resonance, Dynamic Pedal Noise, and the factory collection of Nord's latest grands, uprights, electric and digital pianos. Make no mistake, this instrument will offer the same, top-quality playing feel and sound that Nord is known for.
The Sample Synth section also features double the memory from the Piano 3 and enables expanded polyphony with all sounds being replaceable and manages through the Nord Sound Manager. The Effects Section features a great selection of instantly tweakable high-quality stereo effects modelled after classic stomp boxes. All effects can be assigned freely to the Piano or Sample Synth section.
The Nord Piano 3 was already a highly-respected platform, with Future Music awarding it 4.5 stars out of 5:
"As always with Nord, it’s evolution not revolution, but as far as authentic-feeling and -sounding stage pianos go, the NP3 is very hard to beat."
The new Piano 4 looks set to cement this series' popularity, and we can't wait to get it in stock!
