Get An Incredibly Versatile Synth With Performance Features That Will Take Your Playing To The Next Level - The Nord Lead 4 49 Key Performance Synthesizer


With innovative new performance features, advanced layering and synchronization possibilities, new filter types and on-board effects, the Nord Lead 4 is a synthesizer dream come true. When the first Nord Lead was released in 1995 it started the Virtual Analog revolution, offering a very distinctive sound combined with the tweakablility otherwise reserved for vintage analog synthesizers. The new Nord Lead 4 takes what made the Nord Lead a success and adds a whole bunch of innovative new features justifying the name - performance synthesizer.

  • LFO 1 generates a square, triangle or any of 4 different types of saw- and inverted sawtooth waveforms. LFO 1 can be routed to Filter Frequency, Osc Mod, Osc Mix, Osc 2 Pitch, Amplitude and FX section. The modulation amount can be set as positive or negative/inverted. The LFO 1 rate can be synchronized to the Master Clock.
  • The LFO 1 section is used to control the rate, range and directions for the arpeggiator. Arpeggiator: Range: 1 - 4 octave. Modes: up, down, up/down, random, Poly. The Arpeggio rate can be synchronized to the Master Clock.
  • LFO 2 generates a square, a regular and inverted sawtooth, LF filtered noise and random staircase waveforms. LFO 2 can be routed to Filter Freque
