ABOUT nord stage - the new one. quite like the nord electro contains pianos and organ with drawbar organ, piano and synth in one. but in addition to clavias electro series the nord stage has FX and a simple Synthesizer which provides FM and digital spectra and some VA waveforms with simple envelope (ADSR) and filter (LPF,HPF), not a big deal and not a nl2 or nl3.. but perfect for electro lovers? .. lots of people like to have ONE keyboard for all..
ABOUT Eigentlich ein Keyboard im Stile des Arp Quadra, er ist Synthesizer mit mehreren internen Synthesizersektionen.. Orgel, Piano, Synth.
DETAILS full polyphonic (ok, its about 60 voices) organ and piano, plus synth part is 18 voices "big": 10 standard waveforms 1,2 or 3 operator FM synthesis 32 wavetables, 16 voices, Hard sync Unison mode, Amplitude + Modulation envelope 12/24 dB lowpass filter with resonance
DETAILS synth: 10 Standard Wellenformen 1,2 oder 3 operator FM synthesis 32 wavetables, 18 Stimmen, Hard sync Unisono, Amplitude envelope Modulation envelope 12/24 dB lowpass filter mit resonance orgel/piano: vollpolyphon, naja ca 60 stimmig beim Klavier, 18 für den Synth.
SOUND since the NL has a nice quick and easy to use drum mode and fast envelopes is is fine for percussion, the synched noise and parameter morphing makes evolving pads possible with a bit of chaotic shimmering (updated version), nice live synth
SOUND mit dem synched noise und dem parametermorphing können ineinander übergehende klänge gut gemacht werden, durch die schnellen Hüllkurven können auch Percussion Klänge gebaut werden, Der NL2 hat einen feinen sehr schnell zu bedienenden Drum Mode, cool for live
VERSION 3 keyboard sizes: 73, 76, 88
VERSION 3 Keyboardgrößen 73,76 und 88 Tasten

CLAVIA or Nord Keyboards

Swedish company by Hans Nordelius who often lended the "NORDelius" to their machines. inventors of the virtual analogue term and technology / idea. they advertized for their first synthesizer with "no samples". they also built/build drum modules and even other things like organs and stage instruments but their real innovation was the nord modular and G2, the first full digital modular with really easy building of patches on screen. the first of it's kind was the only one on the market for a very long time.

Hans is on the right on this image.

Official Intl. Site :
ueber Synthesizer Hersteller CLAVIA

Hans NORDelius ist Chef und Namensspender für die meisten Instrumente, die oft im typischen Ferrarirot angeboten werden. Warben sie noch für den ersten virtuell-analogen Synthesizer mit "no samples"-Schildern und setzten damit eine Welle von VAs aus, so boten sie auch den extrem innovativen digitalen Modularsynthesizer lange als einizige an. Bedienung und Speicherbarkeit war neu und ist lange lange ohne eine ernsthafte Konkurrenz ausgekommen.
