Frequently Asked Questions:

What is the recommended setup process for the Clavia Nord Stage 3 88 when connecting it to my computer for using with a digital audio workstation (DAW)?

To connect your Clavia Nord Stage 3 88 to your computer and use it with a Digital Audio Workstation, follow these steps:

1. Connect the MIDI Out port of your Nord Stage 3 88 to your computer's MIDI interface via a standard MIDI cable (or USB cable for a USB-MIDI interface). If you don't have an external MIDI interface, most modern computers have built-in MIDI support through their USB ports.

2. Install the required drivers and software for your MIDI interface if needed. Consult the documentation that came with your interface for specific instructions on how to do this.

3. Launch your chosen DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) software, such as Ableton Live, Logic Pro X, Cubase, or any other compatible software.

4. In your DAW's preferences or settings menu, enable MIDI input from the source connected to your Nord Stage 3 88. This will allow your DAW to receive and process the incoming MIDI signals sent by your keyboard.

5. Set up a new MIDI track in your DAW if one doesn't already exist. Assign this track to use the same input source as the one you connected your Nord Stage 3 88 to. This ensures that any MIDI data received through this connection will be sent to this particular track.

6. If you want to record audio from your Nord Stage 3 88 along with the MIDI data, make sure your DAW is set up to record both simultaneously. Most modern DAWs allow for simultaneous recording of MIDI and audio, but consult your software's documentation for specific instructions on how to do this.

7. Finally, connect your Nord Stage 3 88 to power using its included power supply or optional external power source, if applicable. Make sure the keyboard is properly connected to any other necessary components like speakers or headphones.

8. You can now use your Clavia Nord Stage 3 88 as a MIDI controller and sound module within your Digital Audio Workstation. Use the physical controls on your Nord Stage 3 88 to manipulate sounds, effects, and parameters in real-time while recording or performing with your DAW.

What are the differences between Clavia Nord Stage 2 and Nord Stage 3 88, specifically related to sound generation capabilities?

The Clavia Nord Stage 2 is a powerful keyboard instrument that offers a wide range of sounds and features for live performance and studio use. It comes with a vast library of high-quality sounds, including piano, organ, synth, and sample-based instruments. However, it has now been replaced by the Nord Stage 3 which includes several improvements and enhancements over its predecessor.
Here are some key differences between the Clavia Nord Stage 2 and Nord Stage 3 88 in terms of sound generation capabilities:
1. Sound Engine: The Nord Stage 3 uses a new proprietary sound engine called the "Oscillator Modeling Technology" (OMT), which offers more realistic and expressive sounds, especially for the piano and organ sections. On the other hand, the Nord Stage 2 uses the older Advanced Tone Wheel technology for its organ section and sampled sounds for its piano and synth sections.
2. Piano Section: The Nord Stage 3 has a new enhanced Grand Piano section with improved dynamic range and tonal quality. It also features a new "Layer" mode that allows you to layer two different piano sounds together for a richer, more complex sound. In contrast, the Nord Stage 2's piano section is still good but lacks some of the refinements found in the Nord Stage 3.
3. Organ Section: The Nord Stage 3 has an updated organ section with new B3 Tube and Vintage Transistor models. These new models offer more realistic and expressive sounds compared to the older models used in the Nord Stage 2. Additionally, the Nord Stage 3's organ section now includes a "Rotary Speaker" effect that simulates the sound of a traditional rotating speaker cabinet.
4. Synth Section: Both the Nord Stage 2 and Nord Stage 3 come with a versatile synth section featuring oscillators, filters, envelopes, and modulation sources. However, the Nord Stage 3 has some additional features such as an improved arpeggiator, new waveform options, and a "Wave Modulation" effect that allows you to modulate one waveform with another for unique sound-shaping capabilities.
5. Sampling Capabilities: The Nord Stage 3 introduces a new sampling feature called the "Nord Sample Library." This feature allows you to load your own custom samples into the keyboard and use them as instruments or sounds within the Nord Stage 3's architecture. While the Nord Stage 2 does not have this capability, it can still use sample-based sounds from its internal library.
Overall, the Nord Stage 3 offers significant improvements over the Nord Stage 2 in terms of sound quality, expressiveness, and flexibility. If you are considering purchasing a new keyboard instrument for live performance or studio work, the Nord Stage 3 may be worth considering due to these enhancements in sound generation capabilities.
