Description

Details

The Stage 2 EX Compact Keyboard from Nord is a professional piano, organ, and synthesizer instrument designed with a well-thought-out user interface, and a 73-key semi-weighted Waterfall keyboard. It can be used to play sounds in various environments for audio applications such as live stage, theater, recording studios, houses of worship, and more.

Some of the main features for the piano and organ section of the Stage 2 EX keyboard are a 1 GB memory for the piano library, the sample-based acoustic and electric pianos, an advanced string resonance, and a long release option for controlling harmonics when other strings are played. In addition, the organ section features a B3 tonewheel simulation, a vintage 122 rotary speaker simulation, and classic Vox and Farfisa organs. You also have digital LED drawbars for easy overview of the active drawbar settings.

Additional features of the synthesizer and global effects section of the Stage 2 EX keyboard include the 380 MB of storage for the Nord sample library, the classic analog FM and Wavetable synthesis, an a arpeggiator, a unison mode, and a master clock. Furthermore, the Global section provides a comprehensive effect section, with single-function control knobs providing instant visibility of the current settings, an external section allowing the Nord Stage 2 EX to serve as master keyboard, and an expanded live mode with 5 locations. There is also a USB-MIDI with no driver required for Mac OSX (drivers are available for Windows).

The Keybeds
Semi-Weighted Waterfall (SW): Uses semi-weighted organ type keys with a rounded "waterfall" tip, suitable for rapid organ shredding and synthesizer licks, but also plays nice with piano sounds. Key range E-E
Nord Factory Bank
Features five grand pianos, seven upright pianos, eleven electric pianos, clavinets, harpsichords, and a Nord sample library selection including strings, choir, and folk instruments
Piano Section
The Stage 2 EX piano section features state-of-the-art sampling techniques that can capture the nuances and character of the individual source instrument. Combine this with the advanced string resonance feature, which reproduces fundamental or harmonic frequencies of the piano strings, and makes for a clear natural sounding piano. This feature is also compatible with the optional Nord triple pedal that adds dynamic pedal noise
Organ Section
The Stage 2 EX's dedicated organ section is based on B3 tonewheel simulations thorough analysis of the 91 spinning discs inside several original instruments. The digital LED drawbars offer an overview of current settings and lets you easily change the drawbar settings while playing
Synthesizer Section
The Synth engine itself features classic analog synthesis with dual saw, hard sync and pulse wave modulation, three-operator FM synthesis with 32 different modulation frequencies, Wavetable synthesis with 62 waveforms and sample-based synthesis. A multimode filter features 12 and 24 dB low pass, high pass, band pass, and notch filters. And with an amp envelope, modulation envelope, an LFO, and unison control, the Stage 2 EX's synth capabilities are powerful when delivering on-stage sound
Programming and Control
There are no deep menus, no complicated screens to navigate. All vital functions are controlled by dedicated single-function knobs. In addition, the pitch stick and modulation wheel allow you the maximum musical expression, and the morph grouping technique is also included, allowing you to assign sound and effects parameters to physical controllers
Effects Section
All of the three instrument sections - organ, piano and synth - can be routed individually through the Stage 2 EX's built-in effect units. Turning the effects on and off and controlling the routing is done by dedicated buttons readily accessible at the bottom of each effects unit. With Effect 1, you can choose from tremolo, two wahs, an auto-wah, and an auto-pan, while Effect 2 includes two phasers, two choruses, a flanger, and a vibe effect
