Nord Electro 4 HP Offers Hammer Action, Twice The Memory

Clavia has introduced a new keyboard, the Nord Electro 4 HP:

The new Nord Electro 4 HP has twice the memory capacity of its acclaimed predecessor, Nord Electro 3 HP, letting you fit more sounds from our unique Nord Piano and Sample Libraries.

The Organ section has been upgraded to the latest Tone Wheel engine from our dual manual organ Nord C2D, including a new 122 Rotary speaker simulation and Drive.

  1. Ok. Always nice to see more Nord products…

    …but, perhaps next could be a little more exciting. Like Nord Modular 3.

    Well-loved. Like or Dislike: Thumb up 10 Thumb down 0

    • I wish. But that is highly unlikely, they sold very few G2s, probably less than 200. The money is in pianos, which is why you have not seen a Nord Lead 4 or Wave 2.

  2. What is the real differences between this model and the previous model before and before that… Are they really noticeable details??? I mean the prices won’t change at that rate…

  3. I may be too negative, but first thing that came to my mind was to ask: why did not they put many of those “new” features to earlier (NE3HP) model? I can believe that perhaps Clavia has made those new Organ features after electro3, why earlier HP did not have for example USB midi?

    I believe that many of those (or perhaps all of them) were available, but they wanted to drop them to this next Electro4 model.

    But after all, this is how business is running. Still I don’t like it…
