Nord Triple Pedal with dynamic pedal noise and advanced string resonance
The included Nord Triple Pedal includes soft and sostenuto pedals in addition to a unique dynamic sustain pedal. It also enables Nord's pedal noise feature that dynamically simulates the mechanical sounds of lifting and releasing the damper mechanism. Meanwhile, Nord's unique string resonance accurately reproduces the complex interplay of piano strings and also adds the rich ambience of a real piano when playing with the pedal down.
Sample Synth section
The Sample Synth section contains a completely reworked selection of high-quality sounds from the Nord Sample Library including exclusively licensed sounds from the legendary Mellotron and Chamberlin. The Sample Synth section provides two fully-featured and independent layers with intuitive controls for attack, decay/release and dynamic velocity response. All sounds can be quickly replaced using Nord Sound Manager and you can even create your own sample instruments using free Nord Sample Editor software for macOS and Windows. The Sample Synth section has a powerful Unison feature that creatively blends several sample voices for rich, ensemble-like sounds. It also features a Tru-Vibrato that accurately models the unique vibrato characteristics of a wide variety of wind, brass and string instruments.
The Effect section has a wide selection of instantly tweakable high-quality stereo effects modeled after classic stompboxes. An effect can be assigned freely to any layer in the Piano and Sample Synth sections. Available effects include tremolo, phaser, chorus, auto-pan, wah, ring modulation, flanger, 'vibe,' EQ, delay and reverb. The reverb effect offers five different sizes – booth, room, stage, hall and cathedral – for adding ambience to your sounds with bright and dark modes for enhanced or reduced treble and a chorale option adds a lush modulation effect.
