evolution but not revolution ... - Reviews Clavia Nord Electro 4D

Value For Money : Poor
Keyboard 61 keys with a light touch and at the same time perfectly usable on pianos for those who like it.

The memory is just too over the pianos on site NORTH

The memory is just too also what is the NORTH library, you get quickly out of memory and it is a bit frustrating.


I'm here to put forward these qualities, large defects for me North electro 4

1 / I do not like not being able to use the compressor with the amps because they are all placed on one single function.

2/justement I love to mix one with a flange phaser or tremolo with a wha wha ... Anyway I would like more opportunity to programming effects which are all excellent.

3 / I think that in 2013 a larger LCD screen with backup names (like northern internship) program would be useful for the scene.

4 / I think the organ (génial!) on some programming tends to saturate on some notes and no other and with the use of the phonic wheel you can not use compressor which avoid these problems, in short compressor output is sorely lacking at this general north electro.

5 / I find that the memory could be doubled, it is just the current state ...

6 / drawbars on the organ does not store locations which can be annoying in live use.

And finally I think the keyboard is a bit noisy but great fun to use.

Anyway, I think for the price there are many points to improve, but we must also admit that the sound level I have not found anything better in this price range.

On the plus side I would say B3 organ in version 2 really changed, it is more credible and lively and fun to use, once it is used in zippers is very nice but spoiled by lack of storage position.

Another important point is the contribution of the afternoon by the usb (which works fine) this is my additional criteria that made me buy a North electro4 rather than three


The B3 is just killing and alone justifies the investment northern electro 4D

Pianos are as always excellent and very musical as usual at NORTH

I think it is time to change the sounds of electric pianos compared to the competition by providing the resonance musical example? OR even more realism to the sounds of blades buttons brief improvements in the realistic electric pianos.

Northern Library bookstore is great, especially with the mélotro but it still lacks a lot of variety of sounds.


I find the high value for money.
There is no better on the market a keyboard built for stage and studio with good piano and organ samples + library and general instruments still in constant evolution.

When you're like me accustomed to the sound of the first north from north Elecro, we have a hard time without it and finds herself with soulless instruments as soon as you want to change creamer.

The build quality is exemplary, this is what we do best on the market

Made in the BIG + is the sound of the B3 which alone gives a good reason to choose a north face electro4D 3 and also the midi output via USB that allows utilsation these plugins favorites if not for the rest there is not even memory improvement ...

With hindsight at my purchase if I knew the release of version 73 keys with doubled memory, I may be waiting a bit, but compact and zippers gives a lot of charm I think.
