The Nord Wave 2 is a powerful performance synthesizer keyboard which provides four types of sound synthesis in one instrument - Wavetable, Virtual Analog, Sample-based, and FM (frequency modulation).
Like the original Nord Wave, the Nord Wave 2 gives you traditional analogue sounds that interact and co-exist with pretty much anything you want; by combining analogue, FM synthesis, wavetable and sampled waveforms - you can use literally any standard audio file as a sound source. The BIG difference with the new model is that you can now layer up to four voices together, and all aspects of the instrument have been improved from the physical design (it now has a waterfall keybed) to the effects, arpeggiators, morphing capabilities, oscillator types and more.
The user interface of the Nord Wave 2 has been designed to be extremely intuitive - with plenty of hands-on controllers to shape your sound and to also control the four individual synth layers. There are dedicated volume/pan sliders for the 4-part layers and bright OLED displays for both the program and oscillator sections. This makes the instrument ideal for use on dark stages.
Handmade in Stockholm, Sweden, the Nord Wave 2 has been created by people who are passionate about electronic music with incredible attention to detail.
I've been waiting for a new synth from Nord for a long time now. The original Nord Wave has become a legend and is extremely sought-after on the used market. Nord has listened to customer demand and produced a new synth which surpasses so many expectations. The ability to layer four parts combined with all that hands-on control is just a delight and I can't wait to get mine!
Who's It For?
The Nord Wave 2 is the ideal keyboard to add to your existing stage or studio rig and is capable of providing never-before-heard soaring leads, ethereal textured pads, evolving rhythmic comps, as well as digital sample-based voices. There is 1GB of onboard sample memory which is compatible with Nord Sample Library 3.0, and all factory samples are user-replaceable using the new Nord Sample Editor 3.
Part Exchange Your Existing Keyboard
We know how much you'll want to get your hands on a new Nord Wave 2 and the Bonners part exchange offer can make this faster and easier for you. Simply email us details of your existing instrument to email@example.com and we'll get right back to you with a trade-in valuation. We can even arrange to collect your old instrument at the same time as delivering a new Nord Wave 2 to your door!
Layer Group Feature
The new group feature allows 2, 3 or 4 layers to be 'grouped' together for sharing of the same filter, envelope, arpeggiator, LFO and effects settings. This means that you can create complex layered voices using all four parts which can all be controlled together at the same time for immediate performance power.
Each of the four layers can be split across the keyboard to create four zones - with Nord's optional crossfade feature available too. The latch and hold feature allows you to play a chord which continues to sound whilst you play a different tone over the top.
Keyboard Action & Software Librarian
The Nord Wave 2 has a 61 note waterfall keyboard with velocity response and aftertouch. As well as compatibility with the new Nors Sample Editor 3, the Wave 2 will work seamlessly with the Nord Sound Manager PC/MAC software which simplifies backup and re-organising of sounds & patches an absolute breeze.
Four-Mode Oscillator Section
Each of the four sound layers has its own oscillator which can work in one of the four oscillator modes:
1) Analog Mode
A wide range of classic analogue waveforms is available including Saw, Pulse, Pulse Width, Sine and Square. Shape waveforms allow the Oscillator Control knob to change the shape of the waveform. It's also possible to combine two waveforms to create a unique shape. The spread and detune of these combined waveforms can be also modified using Oscillator Control.
Hard & soft sync configurations are available and the Oscillator Control knob controls the sync frequency. A white noise oscillator option is also available.
2) Sample Based Synthesis
Use samples from the Nord Sample Library 3.0 or add your own samples using the Nord Sample Editor 3 software. Onboard sample presets are available to create instantly playable sounds or craft your own sound using the 'Raw Samp' mode.
The sample section offers over 1GB of memory and is pre-loaded with high-quality samples covering many musical genres, including Choirs, Strings, Brass, Chromatic Percussion and Guitars. Nord's exclusively licenced Mellotron and Chamberlin samples are also on-board. It's possible to completely remove the factory preset samples and replace with your own choice of downloadable sounds from the Nord Keyboards website, or simply import your own samples using the Sample Editor 3 software tool - which is very easy to do! Check out the online videos on Nord's YouTube channel for a quick guide on how to do this.
3) Wavetable Synthesis
Made popular in the 1980s, the wavetable synthesis found in the Wave 2 offers a large number of advanced Wavetables covering a wide range of tonal characteristics.
4) FM Synthesis
2, 3 and 4 operator FM synthesis configurations are at your disposal - all with inharmonic variations.
Apply the Unison Effect to Superwaves to simultaneously create hundreds of waveforms and results in thick, fat tones.
6 FILTER TYPES
The Nord Wave 2's filter section offers six types of filter with full ADSR control including:
- Classic 12 & 24db low pass
- High Pass
- High Pass/Low Pass
- Band Pass
- Transistor Ladder Filter (from the Mini>
LFO & MODULATION SECTION
Each sound layer has its own dedicated LFO with a choice of waveforms and AD/DR Modulation Envelope. There are several 'morph' parameters and the LFO can be synced with the instrument's master clock.
No modern keyboard is complete without powerful effects to not only enhance the sound but create new, sonic possibilities. Each sound section has its own separate effects to give your tone a real edge. Modulation effects (tremolo, pan, ring mod., chorus, ensemble and vibe), EQ & Drive with tube emulation, Delay and Reverb effects are available at your fingertips.
Nord introduced 'morphing' on previous synths and stage keyboards. Wave 2 takes their Morph feature to the next level with even more parameters available which can be controlled with even more sources: Velocity, Aftertouch, Control Pedal or Wheel. It's really easy to assign morph sources to parameters, and the new 'Impulse Morph' feature lets the player immediately control any parameter of their sound.
Create exciting polyrhythms with the powerful onboard Polyphonic Arpeggiator. Patterns can be immediately edited within the instrument. The arpeggiator works in two modes: Poly Mode a polyphonic arpeggiator mode which will retrig all keys together, or in a pattern. Different inversions enable the creation of more exciting harmonic variations.
MASTER CLOCK SYNC
Sync the arpeggiator, LFO or certain effects internally or via MIDI clock using the Master clock SYNC feature. Delays, LFO's and arpeggiator of all four sound layers can be synced perfectly, and the Tap Tempo function makes it easy to work with backing tracks or drummers.
USB MIDI CONNECTION
MIDI connection via USB is available for integration with computer DAW's and also to communicate with Nord's Sound Manager and Sample Editor software applications.
Nord is unique in that they openly publicise their products are compatible with control pedals from other manufacturers including Fatar, Yamaha FC7, Roland EV7, Roland EV5, Korg EXP2 and Korg XVP10.
