The Nord Stage 2 EX features outstanding classic keyboard sounds with true feel, from natural keyboard response to authentic sound.

The Nord Stage 2 EX features Nord's award winning Piano, Organ and Synthesizer technologies combined with a well thought-out, user friendly interface, a 3-note Semi Weighted Waterfall keybed and an almost obsessive level of quality control.

Multitimbral Powerhouse
The Stage 2 EX has three sound generating sections; Piano, Organ and Synthesizer, all of which can be used simultaneously. Furthermore, the Nord Stage 2 EX has 2 separate slots allowing you to have 2 Pianos, 2 Organs and 2 Synths at the same time for massive sonic flexibility!

New Factory Sound Banks
The Nord Stage 2 EX features a brand new Factory Sound Bank with both new sounds in the Piano Library as well as a completely updated and refined selection of sounds from the Nord Sample Library. We've also optimized our sounds allowing you to fit even more sounds without comprising playability.

New sounds include:
  • DX Electric Pianos
  • Strings
  • Voice
  • Folk instruments
  • B3 Tone-Wheel simulation

Organ Section
The Stage 2 EX's dedicated organ section is based on our award winning B3 Tone-Wheel simulations, based on thorough analysis of the 91 spinning discs inside several original instruments and painstaking work on understanding exactly how all the components interact with each other. The virtual circuitry reacts not only to the settings on the panel but also during the real time performance.

The Stage 2 EX will faithfully reproduce the important foldback and energy robbing characteristics; the latter will produce the gentle compression effect that makes those lovely smears absolutely wonderful. There are 3 tone wheel modes that allow you to switch from a clean, factory spec’d instrument to a worn and battered workhorse with many years of touring.

Rotary Speaker simulation
The vintage Rotary Speaker simulation adds an essential character to a live organ performance and features Slow, Fast and Stop mode as well as a Drive control. The Rotary Speaker simulation can also be used with the Piano or Synth Section.

Digital LED Drawbars
The Nord Stage 2 EX features Digital LED Drawbars, offering excellent overview over current settings and let's you easily change the drawbar settings while playing.

Transistor Organ simulations
The Organ section also includes carefully modeled simulations of two of the most famous transistor organs from the 1960’s, the Vox Continental and the Farfisa Compact.

Synth Section
The Stage 2 EX’s powerful synthesizer engine is capable of classic analog synthesis, three operator FM synthesis, Wavetable synthesis and compatible with the Nord Sample Library. The Nord Sample Library gives Stage 2 EX owners access to the huge free library of world-class sounds, including the famous vintage Mellotron and Chamberlin samples.

The included Nord Sample Editor for Mac and PC, makes it possible to create your own samples easily, and transfer them to your keyboard in no time, opening up a whole new world of possibilities!

Semi Weighted Waterfall (SW)
The EX 2 Compact keybed uses semi weighted organ keys with a rounded "waterfall" tip, brilliant for rapid organ shredding and synthesizer licks, but also plays nice with piano sounds (Key range E-E)

The Stage 2 EX truly sets itself apart as an instrument for the professional performing musician.

  • 73-note Semi Weighted Waterfall keyboard
  • Organ section with faithful reproductions of three classic organ models; B3, Vox and Farf (Farfisa)
  • Synth section with sample playback, FM, analog-style and digital waveforms in a subtractive synthesis architecture
  • Piano section with acoustic grand and upright pianos, tine-based electric pianos, Wurlitzer electric pianos, Digital FM pianos, Clavinet, and Electric Grand
  • An External section for controlling external MIDI instruments
  • A powerful Morph feature for applying multiple parameter changes to a sound with controllers
  • Splits and layers are easily set up by assigning instruments to Keyboard Zones
  • Comprehensive effects section
  • Piano memory capacity = 1GB
