Nord Keyboards are pleased to announce a major upgrade to the vintage Electric Piano collection within Nord's exclusive Piano Library, and the addition of new tone-shaping EP Filters including a highly accurate model of the legendary Dyno preamp. The free updates are available now for Stage 3 owners, with full support for Electro 6 and Piano 4 to follow.
Eight vintage Electric Pianos within the Nord Piano Library have been updated with Enhanced versions. All have been refined for optimal sound quality, with new L and XL sized versions featuring additional velocity layers for extended dynamic response.
Accompanying the Enhanced EP library is the release of brand new EP Filters, exclusively designed for Nord's vintage Electric Pianos and available as a free OS update.
Of particular note, the EP Filters include a painstakingly crafted model of the legendary Dyno preamp. The Dyno preamp, customized for vintage EP's, was an essential part of the classic West Coast sound made famous by artists such as Al Jarreau, George Duke, Stevie Wonder and Chaka Khan. Its characteristic punchy, bell-like sound has been accurately recreated exclusively for the new Enhanced Electric Pianos in the library.
