Nord Piano 4: The Versatile Stage Piano for Professional Performers and Studios
The Nord Piano series has been setting the standard for stage pianos since 2010, celebrating the expressive diversity and impeccable sound of acoustic and electric keyboards. The Nord Piano 4, the latest iteration of this acclaimed line, enhances the features of its predecessors while keeping the essence intact, offering a remarkable array of realistic and customizable sounds, an intuitive interface and advanced connectivity.
The Nord Piano 4 boasts a triple-pedal option, comprising sustain, soft and sostenuto pedals, which add enhanced dynamic control over the nine piano models and eight sample libraries that come loaded in the instrument. These samples include classic acoustic pianos, vintage electric pianos, clavs, harpsichords, and even subtle mellotron and upright bass sounds, giving players a broad palette of musical flavors to choose from, whether for a classical recital, jazz gig, pop concert, or studio session. Each sound can be adjusted to taste, through intuitive controls such as EQ, reverb, delay, and chorus, and saved in one of the 120 memory locations, which can be easily accessed via the OLED display or the assignable buttons.
Perhaps the most notable innovation of the Nord Piano 4 is the Seamless Transitions feature, which enables users to switch seamlessly between any two sounds without cutting off the previous sound, creating a more natural and fluid performance. Playing two sounds simultaneously is also possible, thanks to the Nord’s dual-sound engine, which allows for layering and splitting voices across the keyboard. Moreover, the keyboard has a new layer category called Advanced String Resonance, which simulates the subtle vibrations and harmonics of an acoustic piano, adding a layer of realism to each note.
The Nord Piano 4 also caters to live performers with its Live Mode, which allows for easy switching between sounds and programs on the fly, as well as the direct access to external MIDI sources through its MIDI IN/OUT ports, USB MIDI port, and dedicated sample import feature. This means that you can expand the Nord’s library with your own sounds, samples, and soundfonts, and control external modules and devices with ease. The Nord Piano 4 is also lighter and more portable than its predecessors, weighing only 18.7 kg (41.2 lb) and featuring a sleek red finish, making it an ideal companion for tour buses, airplanes, and small stages alike.
The Nord Piano 4 has garnered rave reviews from musicians and critics alike, commending its stunning sound quality, breadth of features, and user-friendliness. Keyboard Magazine called it an appealing option for those who want the essentials plus the ability to dig in and tweak things to their liking, while MusicRadar dubbed it an unbeatable all-rounder that is packed with character, quality, and efficiency. Whether you’re a seasoned professional or a budding pianist, the Nord Piano 4 is a reliable and versatile instrument that will bring your music to life.
