Clavia Nord Lead
NL2X 49-Key Virtual Analog Keyboard in very good+ condition. Includes
manual on CD and power cable.
2X - The Rebirth of a Classic
The original Nord Lead
and Nord Lead
2 are among the most popular synthesizers ever built. Used extensively in
studios, on stage and on records by the world's greatest artists, the Nord Leads
have contributed with their characteristic sound on hit song after hit song. And
of course, that's how they want to keep it!
So why change a winning
concept, you may ask? Well, they didn't change the concept - or the sound, for
that matter. Clavia
simply improved the concept and upgraded the hardware to make it possible for
the Virtual Analog sound to live on for many more years to come!
2X has the same characteristic sound and functions as the Nord Lead
2, except for some very nice improvements:
polyphony: The Nord Lead
2X comes with 20 voices polyphony -- very useful when creating layered sounds,
"power pads", awesome leads and booming basses. 20 voices are also very
beneficial in sequencing situations when you use more than 1 sound at a
X-tra memory: The Nord Lead 2X comes with a large internal memory
holding 4 x 99 user Programs, 100 user Performances and 4 x 10 user Percussion
Kits plus 6 x 99 factory Programs and 3 x 100 factory Performances! The Nord
Lead 2X is 100% patch compatible with the Nord Lead 2 which means that you can
transfer sounds directly between the models via MIDI.
resolution: The awesome sound in the Nord Lead 2X is refined even further thanks
to the brand new, crystal clear 24-bit DACs running at 96kHz.
Velocity programming: Each function that is controlled by a
knob, can be programmed to be controlled by velocity.
function that is controlled by a knob can also be controlled by the modulation
wheel/pedal to continuously fade between 2 sets of values.
4-octave velocity sensitive
Octave Shift buttons (+/-2 oct.)
Keyboard Split, 2
Wooden Pitch Stick, designed to change the pitch continuously
without any dead spots. It gives you complete control of the pitch and allows
you to make true and natural vibrato. The effect increases exponentially as you
move it further from the center. Patent pending for the "Pitch
Modulation Wheel for modulating a number of selectable
destinations. Looks great, feels great, works great.
1 pedal input for
sustain and 1 for expression pedal.
display, 26 knobs and 27 buttons for program editing.
Oscillator 1 generating sine, triangle, sawtooth or pulse wave
with adjustable width.
Oscillator 2 generating triangle, sawtooth or
pulse (with adjustable width) and can also generate noise with a color control.
Oscillator 2 can be hard synced to oscillator 1.
frequency modulation of Osc 1 from Osc 2.
A wide range of new waveforms
with a strong formant character is achieved with the synchable noise, where
noise can be synched to Osc. 1.
12 dB "2 pole"
lowpass, 24 dB "4 pole" lowpass, bandpass or highpass, Notch + Lowpass.
Cut off, resonance, envelope amount, envelope amount controlled by
velocity. ADSR envelope.
Filter keyboard tracking can be set to full,
2/3, 1/3 or off. Filter distortion.
envelope, gain control.
LFO 1 generating
triangle, saw, pulse, LF filtered noise and random staircase routed to Osc 1+2,
Osc 2, filter, pulse-width and FM amount.
LFO 2 produces a triangle
waveform, routed to Osc 1 and 2 or amplifier. It also controls the rate for the
Arpeggiator: Range: 1 - 4 octave. Modes: up, down, up/down,
Echo can be set between 1 and 8 repeats.

Percussion kits (multi zone sounds): 40 (4 x 10)
4 outputs. Each slot can have its own output.
Modes: Stereo, mono and multi-timbral mode. Headphones output. High
resolution, low noise 24-bit DACs running at 96kHz.
All control knobs and switches for program editing transmit and
receive Control Change messages.
