  1. What is so special about the Nord sample format?
    Can it be converted to other formats / imported by a generic audio editor or a tool such as Extreme Sample Converter or NI – Kontakt ?

  2. What is special about the Nord sample format?

    Can Nord sample files be converted with an average sample file editor or tool eg. Extreme Sample Converter?
    Or imported into NI Kontakt or similar?

    1. It can be used in the hardware keyboards. That is what it was designed for. They make the sample library and editor available for free to anyone but is only really useful to owners of the units listed above.
