Capture Every Expression With The Nord Grand Premium Weighted 88-Key Keyboard

The Nord Grand features a premium weighted keybed with advanced triple sensors that capture the movements of the hammers with exceptional precision, delivering the smooth and natural feel of an acoustic grand piano.

Incorporating Nord's award-winning performance features and hands-on user interface, the lightweight Nord Grand not only provides an extraordinary playing experience but is also an elegant new approach to their stage piano series.

Kawai Responsive Hammer Keybed with Ivory Touch

The well-balanced and responsive triple sensor keybed features an advanced mechanism providing extraordinary control both when playing percussively as well as pianissimo with fluent repetitions and retriggering without lifting the key completely. The addition of an Ivory Touch surface gives the keybed an optimal feel and authenticity.

Performance

The Nord Grand has dedicated knobs and buttons for all essential functions required in a live performance situation. Creating Layers and Splits, adding effects or transposing the instrument can be accomplished on the fly.

Seamless Transitions

Seamless transitions when changing programs while playing.

Layers and Advanced Split Points

The two sound sections can be combined in a layer or split over the keyboard. Each of the sound sections can have specific effects, Volume Pedal and/or Sustain Pedal assigned to them. The Nord Grand has 7 Split Points indicated with LED lights and the Split Point Crossfades offers smooth transitions between two split zones. Choose from 3 different crossfade widths (Small, Large or Off) as indicated by different LED colors.

Factory Bank

The Nord Grand factory bank includes 10 Grands, 9 Uprights, 10 Enhanced Electric Pianos, Clavinet, Digital Pianos, and more from the exclusive Nord Piano Library - all handpicked for their unique character! Nord's state-of-the-art sampling techniques capture the extraordinary nuances and real character of the source instruments with breathtaking realism. All sounds can easily be replaced using the Nord Sound Manager. The exclusive Nord Piano Library is constantly updated with new unique world-class sounds - always free of charge.

Advanced String Resonance

Nord's unique Advanced String Resonance reproduces the intricate interplay of piano strings resonating at their fundamental or harmonic frequencies when other notes are played on the Grand and Upright piano sounds. It also adds the rich resonant ambiance of a real piano when playing with the pedal down.

Creative Piano Filters

Providing an additional level of sonic control, the Piano Section features dedicated piano filters for Acoustic and Electric pianos accentuating softness, mid, or brilliance. The EP filters also include unique Dyno filters based on the legendary preamp delivering the characteristic punchy, bell-like sound that was an essential part of the classic West Coast sound during the 70s and 80s. Read more about the dedicated EP filters here.

Nord Triple Pedal with Dynamic Pedal Noise

The included Nord Triple Pedal features Soft and Sostenuto Pedals in addition to a unique Dynamic Sustain Pedal. The Triple Pedal also enables the Pedal Noise feature that dynamically simulates the mechanical sounds of lifting and releasing the damper mechanism.

Soft Release

A Soft Release-mode adds a slightly longer release, more suitable for legato playing, emulating a looser damper tension in an acoustic or an electromechanical instrument.

Keyboard Touch

3 dynamic curves are available to suit your playing style, from Light to Heavy.
