With a reputation for design, playability, and quality of sounds, the Nord Piano 5 73-Key Portable Digital Stage Piano expands on the excellence of the previous generation to offer a superior studio and stage piano with significant upgrades and improvements under the hood. Combining two powerful piano engines, dual independent sample synths, and twice the memory of its predecessor with a premium, Triple Sensor keybed (with grand weighted action) and the company's proprietary Virtual Hammer Action Technology, the Piano 5 delivers an exceptional playing experience for professional pianists performing live or in recording sessions. This 73-key model is 8.6" shorter and 3 lb lighter than the 88-key version, making it easier to transport when touring or traveling to local gigs.
The Piano and Sample Synth sections each contain two independent Layers. The two Pianos and two Sample Synths can be used simultaneously in a variety of split or Layer configurations. Combined with the versatile effects routing, a wide range of sounds can be quickly achieved—from classic ensemble settings to rich soundscapes.
The Nord Piano 5 features a live-focused design with dedicated dials and buttons for full, hands-on control during a live performance. Transposing, setting up a split point, or creating a layered sound can be accomplished instantly. You can immediately execute seamless transitions for glitch-free changing of sounds or programs while playing. The LED-equipped Level controls allow for fast and precise balancing of all Layer volume levels. For even more expressivity, a volume pedal and/or sustain pedal can be assigned to each Layer.
Extremely popular with discerning musicians, Nord pianos are built by hand in the company's Stockholm Factory and adhere to the most stringent standards for years of professional use. The Piano 5 features that distinctive red chassis, which elegantly stands out on stage and on screen.
