The new Nord Lead 4 performance features, advanced layering and synchronization possibilities, new filters and effects are a synthesizer dream come true.
- 4-part multi-timbral virtual analog synth with two oscillators per voice
- Fast-action 49 keys C-C keyboard
- Creating crazy modern sounds with wavetable, FM and subtractive synthesis using Nord’s Formant Wavetable feature
- Creating sounds up to 4 oscillators per voice with True Voice Unison
- 20-voice polyphony
- Filters with 12 dB and 24 dB lowpass mode, highpass mode, bandpass mode, and transistor and diode-ladder filter simulation.
- Dual LFO and arpeggiator sections
- Special effects section for each voice: Delay, reverb, bit crush, speech effect and more
- morph and variation controls to distort your sounds in real time
- Perfect studio integration with USB MIDI and separate output for each voice
Nord Lead 4 features two virtual analog oscillators with two oversampling sound engines, the classic analog waveform mode, and a brand new unique formant waveform. With True Voice Unison, four oscillators per Voice can be stacked to create unique leads, dense pads and full bass sounds. Frequency modulation and Hard/Soft sync options, bell chimes and unique pads are at your fingertips to take sound design possibilities even further.
Filter types include classic Hi-Pass, Low-Pass and 12/24 dB Band-pass as well as newly designed transistor and diode ladder filters that carry all the refinements of the originals. All these filters can be overdriven just like the originals, with a special control that allows them to be overdriven before the effects section.
The Nord Lead 4’s design has many buttons and pots assigned the most important parameters so that your performances are dynamic and impressive. The new “variation” knob allows instant control of any of the synth’s parameters, giving the user unparalleled flexibility during live performance – ever wanted to mute the reverb on a particular chord? Or stop the lead’s LFO at the end of the song? With 7 assignable “variations” per program, you can shape your sounds as you wish, in sync with your music.
Give the finishing touches to your sounds with an extensive library of effects including reverb, delay, tube amp overdrive, talk filter and bit crusher.
