As usual: Unstoppable! - Reviews Clavia Nord Electro 4 SW73

1 year North ex internship, 1 and a half years north electro 3.1 year and a half north piano, 2 years North Stage 2 76 (heavy touch), all this through a northern wave ..
Suffice to say I used to NORD.
(For a detailed perspective view my opinion on the north course audiofanzine here on February 76.)

Used to play the organ on the heavy touch of stage 2 of the 76 or 80 jupiter doublet, I had the pleasure of enjoying on stage with a heavy touch down and a real waterfall above.
In addition I needed a keyboard top but very light to go right and left outside concerts.

I would not take two Nords, so enjoy another marque.J 'so I chose a kurzweil pc3 k8 and I sold the stage 2 by buying a North electro April 73.

In this way I kept the north (not do without that clear), at the same time I recovered the waterfall and lightness, and if I want a heavy touch to play the piano sounds north well it is simple I control midi from my kurzweil.
In the end I have the feeling of having everything I need, and nothing I do not need. (Which does not bother me).

we need to talk a bit first differences between the 61 and the 73.
Freaks organ playing with the zippers have the 61, but cool at the cost of sacrifice:
-2 Times less memory for pianos and samples as 73.
Frankly, I was not ready to sacrifice much memory just to have real drawbars.

The 73 to 380 mo for piano (180 for electro electro north and north 3 April 61) and it changes things anyway because you can really download the latest big pianos north library without feeling limité.180 mo ca fears on this point there will be tradeoffs.
The northern electro April 73 approaches the same stage 2 .. and ca ca me plait!

For samples, 68 mo of electro and electro 3 April 61, the fear was also ca double on the north electro April 73.

The evolutions if compared to the electro 3
New simulation-leslie
Organ-enhanced (generation C2D) so above stage 2 (C2 generation) and above the north electro 3 (her generation of C1)
the click is better, everything is better in fact .. it sounds even warmer and more organic (without electro 3 is ridiculous should not exaggerate.
-The delay (before yen had not)
-Noon by usb
-Along release for pianos
-4 Buttons selection of sounds (against 2)
Some want to sell their electro 3 saying it is the same as the 4 ... well not for me (I'll Chapter sounds.)


Easier is not possible.
Its limitations are its strength, right and most perfect demonstration of the concept "one button one function"
His samples (not pianos and eps, I speak various samples are not editable in detail (except for the place and settle in a memory effects), but there is a bit more on the software.

This is not the stage 2 and most searched panel synthesis.

the manual?
What ...


My North electro 3, I found nice, but manquai me something.
When I went on stage 2 I felt the difference.

My electro north April 73, honestly I think it sounds better than the electro 3, I do not know to explain in detai is a feeling.
In fact I feel like nothing compared to losing my ex stage 2.
pianos and everything else, ca also sounds good, the organ will ring even a little better after the techique sheet

I will not repeat my opinion of course for two sounds, what I can say is that apart from the different functions, it sounds as good as Stage 2, that is to say at the top.


Soon one year with my north electro April 73.
I had to do around forty concerts with over mo heavy touch.

I have nothing to reproach in fact, it makes me all the services for which I bought with a solid pro and cash and reliability to any ordeal.
I broke out with organ sounds, ca is great and when I spend a heavy touch the waterfall ca slides alone typed for specific effects of the organ game.
Especially it sounds terrible, it's pro.
Outside the organ pianos are impeccable (although inherently the keyboard is not the best to play well obviously)
I just load it in the stretch north piano (a little out there) and it is a killer for rock .. pfff ..
Eps do a good job, and the various samples are also very efficient anyway to use thanks to the quality of the library.
Lots of good synths there are represented as well as various specific instruments (acoustic, mellotron and chamberlain)

We can talk for hours, this is not a keyboard for geeks who do not necessarily include the price, but when you move and you work hard music is a great companion.
It does not sacrifice the essential: the sound.
There are no complex functions, but it will especially help you to play without taking the head of a formidable efficiency.
Whatever I do and wherever I go play, I always ship anyway it is essential to me.
Too bad he did not have a liquid crystal display as stage 2, but no it's not bad for most of the northern third quality with less price.
Apart from that I can not blame him a little anyway ...
It is near perfection for what I did.
