Nord have just announced that they will be releasing a brand new keyboard in April of this year! The Nord Lead A1 takes the acclaimed analogue-modelling engine from their Lead 4, whilst adding an innovative interface that is specifically designed for programming sounds.
Although it is a digital instrument, the Lead A1 can produce analogue-type sounds with amazing accuracy. It has 24 voices of polyphony, it's four-part multi-timbral and its renowned Nord-quality build and reliability make it a superb choice for both the studio and gigging musician.
It's that time of year again, with the National Association of Music Merchants show due to take place in California, from 23rd to 26th January.
