Sound on Sound review Nord Electro 4 Series keyboards
“Clavia’s updated Electro range prove that if you need top-quality staple keyboard sounds, playability and simplicity, Nords still lead.”
“When Clavia introduced the Nord C2D, they upgraded its Hammond organ model and improved its rotary speaker effect. I reviewed the C2D in 2012, and concluded that its Hammond emulation was Clavia’s best yet, and arguably the most realistic available. Happily, all of these improvements have been incorporated into the Electro 4 series”.
“The other major new facility that’s common to all the models is MIDI over USB”.
“There’s a trend for light, manageable keyboards that sound great, and the Electro 4s – resplendent in Clavaia’s signature red livery – satisfy all of these criteria”
“I don’t think there’s currently a better source of piano and organ emulations than a Nord…whichever model you choose, it will sound great”.
“…if your need is for pianos and organs, and playability and simplicity are sought, there’s currently no other manufacturer that caters quite as well to your needs”.
