The new Nord Stage 3 is the fifth generation of Nord’s flagship Stage series. It is reviewed in the new issue of Sound On Sound magazine and is praised for its, "increased sample memory, new pipe organ models, more powerful synthesiser, increased polyphony and enhanced effects, Song mode, an extra keyboard zone, seamless transitions between Programs, Program changing using a foot pedal, improved monitor input routing and more."
"The Stage 3 is a significant upgrade from the Stage 2, not just because of the major changes, but because some of the lesser ones could make a difference to how and when you'll be able to use it."
“...if the facilities of the Stage 3 are appropriate to your needs, you won't be disappointed by the range of sounds that you can get from it, nor its quality, nor its style, which are as good as they ever were. The Stage 3 is a fine instrument”.
