Nord Keyboards has announced the fourth generation of its award winning Piano series.

Distributed in the UK by Sound Technology, the Nord Piano 4 combines greatly expanded voice polyphony, a premium Triple Sensor keybed and Nord’s acclaimed Virtual Hammer Action Technology.

The Nord Piano 4 also includes new performance features like Seamless Transitions, dedicated Piano Filters and Split Point Crossfades delivering a live focused keyboard promising “exceptional piano feel”.

The Nord Piano 4 features two sound sections that can be combined in a layer or split over the keyboard. It features 7 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 your Programs. All Programs, Pianos and Synth Samples can be easily 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.

“Our exclusive Nord Piano Library is constantly updated with new unique world class sounds, and always free of charge,” said the keyboard maker.
