Can anyone confirm this?


Yes, you can hook up the triple pedal unit.

I wonder what has prevented Yamaha, Roland, Kawai, Korg, and Kurzweil to not pursue a similar product. They certainly have teh resources to do it. Can you imagine if you could buy a Yamaha with great piano action and access to a free sample library of their various pianos? Same for the others too...that would be very cool.

If everyone really sells their DP's and buys the Stage 2 I'm sure the other manufacturers will be close behind!

Haha! I mentioned this to Essbrace. He and I are both former RD700GXF (I'm soon to be) and Nord (again, hopefully soon to be) users. If a lot of us started to jump ship, you can bet the major DP makers would not be far behind.

It's totally different approach smile people from Clavia work on new sample sets and OS updates all the time. Other brands have more comfortable system to announce new boards and don't make any minor upgrades between. And they sample piano once and release it in different models in years. Clavia makes new samples all the time - it's more focused on clients and working on brand opinion all the time.

The "systems", "formulas" or whatever used by the different manufacturers are interesting but the most important question is, is the product right?...and Nord have just hit the spot with the Nord Piano. I have had most stage type DPs and I find I enjoy the Nord the most...this is certainly not due to any technical superiority but there is just something about their piano voices that makes them rewarding and enjoyable to play. I had/have huge respect for what Roland have achieved with the SN engine but I wouldn't go back to the Roland. For what it's worth at the moment I think the FP-7F is the most rounded product in Roland's current line up...another example of the product being just right.

Cheers,

Steve

From my understanding the 4gig must be 'halved' to contain both the 'Steinway'D and 'Yamaha'C types or maybe theres even more variations which would cut down the memory for each further...no?

Sorry for this nonsence - a screen disapeared an I posted this in the wrong thread.

Two great recordings there...Dave, yours sounds wonderful. I take your point about it not sounding so good near to the speakers but something that sounds that good through decent headphones like I'm wearing now must be intrinsically OK. I accept you don't think you have issues with your speakers and your CP5 performs better but even so, your recording sounds great to me (you got the stereo the wrong way round by the way).

What I particularly like about the Nord Yamaha sound (Studio Grand 2) is that it has the cleanliness and evenness of a Yamaha but none of the sterility/coldness that in my opinion blights Yamaha DPs...ironic that Nord do a better Yamaha than Yamaha do. The only Yamaha DP sound I like is the "soft CF" on the CP1 (don't know whether it is on the CP5 or 50), but even that can sound a bit soulless. It might just be that to my ears all Yamaha's reverbs are so clinical.

The classical piece is not my cup of tea and it is such a flurry of notes it's not easy to pin down the tonality of the piano (not easy for me anyway) and I'm struggling to decide which Nord voice (if any) he used there...it's not the Bosendorfer because it was uploaded before that voice became available and I don't think it's the Grand Lady D...I might be wrong but maybe he used a VST controlled from the Nord.

Cheers,

Steve

Well in this video he says the 88 key will retail "roughly a little over $4,000."

So that basically means dealer will be about the same price as the current Nord Stage - ~$3500. This is a very compelling instrument for $3500 or so. I'm still going with the Nord Piano though.

Red is a good color, it is unique.

Here is another video of the Stage 2:
