Clavia Nord Stage 2 EX 88 - 88-Note Digital Stage Piano
The Clavia Nord Stage 2 EX 88 Stage Piano is an 88 note keyboard that's an update for Clavia's flagship instrument line. 1 GB of memory dedicated to the Nord Piano Library allows for a whole new range of sounds for you to play with.
The keybed on the EX 88 has been meticulously calibrated to ensure an even response across all the keys. The 88 top-of-the-line fully weighted action piano keys deliver a realistic feel whilst your playing though the library of sounds.
The Stage 2 EX 88 has three sound generating sections which can all be used simultaneously. These sections are piano, organ and synthesiser, and with the two separate slots allowing you to have 2 Pianos, 2 Organs and 2 Synths, you have a huge amount of sonic flexibility. The new Factory Bank features 5 Grand Pianos, 7 Upright Pianos, 11 Electric Pianos, Clavinet and Harpsichords. The Nord Sample Library has been improved delivering great new Strings, Choir and Folk instruments.
State-of-the-art sampling techniques have been used for the sounds in the Piano section. These techniques capture the extraordinary nuances and real character of the individual source instruments. Advanced String Resonance reproduces the sound of the piano strings resonating at their fundamental or harmonic frequencies when other strings are played. This results in mind blowing realism which when combined with an expression pedal, gives you an incredible amount of expressiveness. As well as acoustic pianos, the Stage 2's Piano Section also features some of the most desirable vintage electric pianos.
