NAMM 2016: Nord Piano 3 set for LA debut

Nord Piano 3

The firm's latest keyboard is set to land in the UK in May 2016.

New keyboard to land in UK in May.

Nord’s new Piano 3 will be unveiled later this week at the NAMM 2016 show in LA.

The new keyboard comes with improved grand piano weighted action and expanded memory for the exclusive Nord Piano Library.

Its Virtual Hammer Action Technology simulates the hammer movements in a Grand Piano, while the Triple Sensor keybed allows key movements to be determined with optimum precision.

Furthermore, the Piano 3 features an extended triggering range, making both top and bottom triggering possible.

Meanwhile, 1 GB of memory is dedicated to the Nord Piano Library. The Factory Bank features six Grand Pianos, five Upright Pianos, 11 Electric Pianos, Clavinet and Harpsichords. Replacing the sounds in your Nord Piano 3 is simply a matter of dragging and dropping files in the Nord Sound Manager for Mac and Windows.

The Sample Synth section in the Nord Piano 3 has 256 MB memory dedicated to the Nord Sample Library 2.0 - a selection of sampled sounds from a wide range of genres, including the exclusively licensed sounds of the Mellotron and Chamberlin.

The Nord Piano 3 weighs 18,2 kg (40,7 lb) and measures 1287 mm (50.7"), 121 mm (4.8"), 340 mm (13.4").

The Nord Piano 3 is due to arrive in the UK in May 2016 with pricing to be announced.
