Nord Keyboards has launched the Nord Piano 4, the fourth generation of the firm’s electronic Piano series, with expanded voice polyphony, a premium Triple Sensor keybed and Virtual Hammer Action Technology.

It also includes new performance features like Seamless Transitions, dedicated Piano Filters and Split Point Crossfades.

The piano offers two sound sections that can be combined in a layer or split over the keyboard, plus seven Split Points and the new Split Point Crossfade functionality, introduced in the Stage 3, for smooth transitions between the two split zones.

The new Organise mode includes Copy/Paste and Move functionality for quickly rearranging programs. All programs, pianos and synth samples can be navigated using the new List View offering alphabetical, numerical and category sorting options. An optional new Numeric Pad Mode gives you instant access to Programs by entering the Program number.

Also included is a broad selection of acoustic, electric and digital pianos from the exclusive Nord Piano Library, greatly expanded voice polyphony and creative new Piano Filters.

The Nord Piano 4 factory bank contains the firm’s latest Grands, Uprights, Electric Pianos and Digital Pianos from the exclusive Nord Piano Library.


Virtual Hammer Action Technology, introduced with Nord Piano 3, simulates the hammer movements in a Grand Piano delivering greater authenticity and dynamic response. The premium Triple Sensor keybed allows key movements to be determined with more precision.


Advanced String Resonance reproduces the intricate interplay of piano strings resonating when other notes are played on Upright and Grand piano sounds. The included Nord Triple Pedal enables the Dynamic Pedal Noise feature that dynamically simulates the mechanical sounds of lifting and releasing the damper mechanism.


The Sample Synth Section contains a wide selection of sounds from the Nord Sample Library 3.0 including the exclusively licensed sounds of the Mellotron and Chamberlin. All sounds can be quickly replaced using the Nord Sound Manager.


Piano 4’s Effect section features a selection of instantly tweakable high quality stereo effects modelled after classic stomp boxes. All effects can be assigned freely to the Piano or Sample Synth section.


It includes Tremolo, Phaser, Chorus, Pan, Wah, RM, Flanger, Vibe, EQ, Delay and Reverb with a new Bright Mode.


It is scheduled for shipping in Summer 2018 with pricing to be announced.
