Clavia Nord Electro 3 73-Key Synthesizer

With the introduction of the Nord Electro 3, the legacy of the original Electro and the know-how that have shaped some of the other Nord models have been combined. The Electro 3 features a new organ section, a new piano section, new effects and a new exciting feature that allows the Electro 3 to use any samples from the Nord Sample library. This is the performance keyboard that sets a new standard based on its impressive sound quality.


Sound:
first i should say i own an Electro 2 73..got it used at a decent price. can't afford the Electro 3 unless they drop the price about a grand. and that brings me to the problem with the Nord Electro keyboards. they're just overpriced for what they do. the onboard acoustic and electric stage pianos are terrible, and the "library" of about 3 sounds on the Clavia site is not any better. clav, rhodes , and wurli are fine..would not make any improvements. from most of the players i talk to, they buy this for the organ and leslie sim. this is one of the two best features of the board. the digital drawbars and vibrato are great and the leslie sim is sufficient. not much headroom on the rotary overdrive though..it's like all or nothing. i think the main thing the Electro 2 has going for it is ease of operation...unlike calling the cable company, you don't have to go through a bunch of menus to get where you need to be ! the overall level of the Electro 2 is rather low, and i have to crank that channel of my amp or use a compressor. i understand the Electro 3 has expanded sounds and an editor. still for the price, you could get a Korg or Roland with 1000s of patches, sampling, and a ton of effects. the simplicity and sounds of the Nord just don't justify the cost to me.
