The Nord Electro 4 HP features the B3 tone wheel organ engine from Nord's C2D flagship organ and includes a redesigned Key Click simulation as well as the Rotary Speaker simulation of a vintage 122 unit with a great new overdrive. The percussion model has been improved to offer increased control over the percussion levels when playing near-legato. Naturally, the vibrato and chorus scanners have been carefully modelled to be just as alive as the tone wheels.
The Farfisa and Vox models are just as impressive as the B3, simulating the behaviour and unique response of the original instruments. The Farfisa Compact Deluxe, considered by many to be the mother of transistor organs, involves routing matrixes and complex filter combinations that offer a tailored sound with massive energy and high-end.
The Vox Continental's brute design brings you a more hollow tone, but with a very intense character. Both these transistor organs have their own unique, irreplaceable personalities. Combine them with any of the Amp simulations, add some distortion, adjust the EQ and they will definitely get you through any organ gig with flying colours.
The organ can be split, for compact dual manual action and its even possible to assign the lower manual to a second MIDI keyboard. Inputs for a Swell pedal and Rotary Speaker control are also available.
The Nord Electro 4 HP comes loaded with a selection of amazing sounds from the Nord Piano Library - their specialised library for Grand, Upright and Electrical Pianos, Clavinet and Harpsichords.
All the sounds have been recorded using state-of-the-art sampling techniques to capture the extraordinary nuances and unique characters of the source instruments and covers everything from brilliant, factory new Grand Pianos to detuned upright bar pianos with tons of charm.
The entire Nord Piano Library is included on DVDs and new additions can be downloaded free on the Nord Piano Library page. Replacing the sounds is simply a matter of dragging and dropping files in the Nord Sound Manager for Mac and Windows.
The Long Release feature is suitable for legato playing styles and the String Resonance (Gen 1) feature on Grand and Upright Pianos can be turned off when desired. 380 MB of the Electro 4 HP's memory is dedicated to Nord Piano Library sounds.
Nord Sample Library and Sample Editor

The Nord Sample library is updated on a regular basis and all new additions can be downloaded for free!
The included Nord Sample Editor makes it possible to add any sound you want to your Electro 4 HP. The Sample Editor can use audio files in the .wav format and has great tools to assist you in getting the results you want. Mapping several samples across the keyboard or creating seamless loops has never been easier.
