Tone Wheel Organ
Nord have performed great analysis on the 91 spinning tone wheels inside several original instruments and other intricate details that characterise the sound in a vintage organ. Nord's simulation not only reacts to the panel settings but even adapts to the real time performance, reproducing the important foldback and energy robbing characteristics. Even the gentle compression effect is created, which makes those lovely smears. There are 4 tone wheel modes available, which range the default vintage battered workhorse with plenty of leakage to a clean factory spec'd instrument.
Click, Percussion and Vibrato
The Nord C2D boasts a greater mechanical key click simulation, whilst Nord has also carefully modeled the vibrato and chorus with the rotating scanner and its analog circuitry. The organ also has a redesigned percussion model, which gives increased control over the percussion levels when playing near-legato.
Full Hands-on Control
This organ has two sets of drawbars per manual and a new left hand drawbar preset panel. These new preset panels allows you to instantly switch between drawbar sets and it has 3 user programmable drawbar preset buttons per manual.
The Nord C2D 61-key waterfall keyboard is speedily responsive and boasts firm mechanical action for that original vintage instrument feel. The panel and upper manual has been tilted slightly towards the player and the panel between the manuals have a smooth surface making smears easy to do.
The Pipe Organ
The Nord C2D pipe organ is based on a carefully selected baroque organ with great sound and expression. Nord's cutting edge sampling technique has created a rich and varied sound palette for the player.
Stops and Couplers
The two pipe organ divisions (manuals) have their different sound characters; the Great division (lower manual) has a majestic sound, whereas the Swell (upper manual) boasts a somewhat more mellow tone. Couplers can activate combinations of different stops from both divisions, meaning that pressing keys on one manual can also play stops from the other manual or pedal. The Pedal division possesses three bass stops, which can be played either from the lower manual, by attaching a Nord Pedal Keys 27 (not included) or by attaching a 3rd party 30-note classic digital organ pedal.
Along with the three unison couplers, the Nord C2D also boasts three octave couplers and a special coupler that adds the Pedal to the leftmost note played on the Great manual.
Swell Pedal and Tremulant
The Nord C2D gives the player intimate control over volume and dynamics of the swell manual, just as in a real-life model. The tremulant function helps produce small and very rapid variations in volume, causing the sound to "tremulate". The Nord C2D boasts two speeds, each with three variable depths.
Vox and Farfisa
The Nord C2D also has accurate models of the two of the most popular transistor organs of the 1960s, giving you that massive sound created by their 12-top oscillator frequency-divider designs.
The Farfisa Compact Deluxe involves routing matrixes and complex filter combinations to create a tailored sound with massive energy and high-end. The Vox Continental has a brute design which brings a more hollow tone, but still with a very intense character. As with the tone wheel organ, both these transistor organs boasts their own personalities.
"For most people, it will be the B3 emulation that gets the most use and it's here where the C2D really hits a home run. It just oozes authenticity on every level and even staunch B3ists will surely be impressed by the feel and sound." Music Radar
