It's a bit like owning a full collection of sweet retro organs, majestic grand pianos and classic electric pianos without taking a transit van to the gig. The Electro 5 sees major enhancements to the interface and an expansion of every sound engine.
Revised, expanded and more user friendly than ever the Electro 5 sees major enhancements to the sonic palette and gig readiness. The new OLED display is a major enhancement, letting you unlock all that potential more easily than ever before. This is particularly handy with the new Set List feature which lets you create a list of songs for your band, then assign up to 4 programs for each song. Great for staying on top of things at the gig and managing your sounds. The Electro 5 takes major strides to being the only tool you need on stage.
Piano SectionThe new Electro 5 series all feature 1GB of Piano Sample memory, allowing you to bring even more of our unique sampled acoustic and electric pianos on stage. The subtle but effective Sympathetic String Resonance technology derived from the Nord Piano is now implemented in the Electro 5 delivering an unprecedented degree of realism to your performance when using our Grand or Upright pianos.
The piano section of the Electro 5 contains acoustic and electric pianos from the ever-expanding, and freely downloadable Nord Piano Library. Expertly sampled and brimming with unique character, the Grand and Upright Acoustic Pianos, legendary Electric Pianos, Clavinet and Harpsichord, provide a stunning sound palette.
Organ SectionThe Electro 5 Organ section features a new Principal Pipe Organ mode as well as the classic Tone Wheel simulation and the highly acclaimed Rotary Speaker simulation of a vintage 122 unit from the award winning Nord C2D Combo Organ.
A new B3 Tone Wheel Bass feature gives you the classic 16” and 8“ bass drawbars in the left hand and can even be used with the Piano and Sample section for a thick and meaty bottom. Both the Electro 5D 61/5D 73 feature physical Drawbars and can accommodate the Nord Half-Moon switch with stop/slow/fast modes (optional accessory).
Sample Synth SectionThe new Electro 5 features a dedicated Sample Synth section with expanded memory for the Nord Sample Library (256 MB) and additional controls for attack, decay/release and dynamics (filter/velocity). The Nord Sample Library features a broad selection of free sounds from acclaimed sample producers as well as exclusively licensed sounds of the legendary Mellotron and Chamberlin.
EffectsElectro 5 also features new improvements in the Effect section – all effects are now in Stereo, the Delay and Reverb are now separate effects. The Modulation effects now include a Vibe effect and the Amp section features an added Stereo Tube overdrive. Tremolo, Pan, Ring-Mod and Wah-wah effects can all be controlled with a Control Pedal.
Split And LayersThe Nord Electro 5 has two sound slots that can be combined in a layer or split over the keyboard (Organ/Piano, Piano/Sample Synth or Sample Synth/Organ). Each of the sound slots can have specific effects and separate Control Pedal and/or Sustain Pedal assignments. For example chorus and Sustain Pedal on the Piano and some Delay and a Control Pedal on the Sample Synth. The split function includes 6 split points, indicated with LED lights for obvious identification on stage.
