Introducing the Nord Stage 88, the culmination of Clavia's award-winning technology and design in a full-range weighted-action stage piano.
Clavia's patented pitch-stick and modulation wheel construction is included for maximum expression, and the unique Morph Grouping technique allows you to combine effects and sound parameters together into one physical controller. Like the Nord Electro2, the organ section is based on full simulation of electromechanical organs. The Nord Stage emulates the energy stealth from the tone wheels, resulting in the 'compressed' sound that occurs when playing many notes simultaneously. The piano section is very flexible, allowing the use of any of the Stage's rich effects, splits, and layers, and in the future Clavia will release new piano samples that can be loaded via the Nord Stage's USB port. The multisample engine of the Nord Stage displays subtle nuances throughout the whole dynamic range.
Clavia is world famous for synthesizer technology since the groundbreaking Nord Lead from the mid-1990s.
The heart of this synthesizer is the Oscillator section, where you can choose from basic sound elements.
The Phaser, Flanger, and Chorus effects are modeled from the classic analog stomp boxes that were popular in the 1970s. Among the modulations the Nord Stage is capable of, there are the vintage Tremolo, three Wahs, and Auto-Pan. There is a Ring Modulator on board, an effect used by many experimental and electronic musicians.
The effects section also includes an amplifier emulation unit which recreates the famous sound of a Fender Twin Reverb. There is also a Rotary Speaker emulation, that not only brings a much-needed feature to a live organ performance, but can be used with any of the electric or acoustic piano sounds as well as the synthesizer unit. The Nord Stage can be fitted with classic piano legs reminiscent of a classic Rhodes piano. Pianos come in many varieties, and while a Yamaha C7 might sound great, it might not be the sound you need at the moment.
So, if anyone has any thoughts on the accoustic piano issues with the NS88, pls feel free to share your stream of consciousness. It's a very unique board but I agree that the piano samples can sound a bit harsh and thin but then later on I listen back to something I've recorded with it and it's actaully pretty decent. Jury's still out on this one as well as it's really pricey and sometimes I think to myself, wholly.
I lost my power cable and it took not only a long time to get one here in Canada but when I did finally get one from the distributor, it wasn't even new! Overll it land somewhere between and 8 and a 9 as it does what it does well but it has some weaknesses as well (like most units have) The huge price is a significant one but who else makes a unit like this?

With the Clavia Nord Stage EX 88, you get fantastic acoustic grand sounds, synths, vintage organs, and more.
Just put myself into a large chunk of debt for one of these badboys, and it has turned out to be totally worth it. Key action is incredible, I have the weighted keys and they are weighted heavy enough for acoustic embellishment, but light enough to still rock a good rhodes or organ sound.
I can't emphasize this enough because it was even easier to play this board than I expected.
It is expensive, but thats what happens when a small company with barely 20 employees pumps out a high end product like this.
Its a sexy crimson beast, and looks like it might take life of its own when you start it up with all the leds. I first heard this when Alan Pasqua used one at his Live at Yoshi's performance with Allan Holldsworth.
Once you get Nord's entirely different approach, you see how much easier it is to use than any other keyboard interface. Clavia just makes great stuff that seems like it will far outlive it's technological lifespan (eg a Korg Trinity still works, but why would you want to use it?).

We do our homework, make phone calls, and scour the Internet seeking advice on the perfect stage piano, yet at every turn, we're forced to give up some benefit and choose between the lesser of compromises. Featuring the best of Clavia's technologies, the Stage 88 is designed with practical benefits for real-world pianists.
Constructed of the same light metal as other Nord keyboards, the Stage holds up to the rigors of touring and constant transportation. The Stage is 6-voice multitimbral, so 6 sounds can be combined into a powerful performance.
The Stage also has four outputs, giving users the opportunity to run individual sounds through different outputs -- this is a great way to dominate your performance, and control your sound mix. The Nord Stage contains not only the famous sound of the Hammond B3, but it also adds Vox and the Farfisa organ models as well.
The rotary speaker emulation is the final touch of our rich organ sounds, and is available for the pianos and the synths as well. These groups include the Mega Clavinet D6, the Wurlitzer 200A, the Rhodes Mark 1, and the custom Electric Grand model G.
Thanks to the carefully designed sound engine, an aura of authenticity is created that can only be heard in a Nord instrument.
For discriminating musicians, a subtractive synthesizer has been built into the Stage, creating opportunities for texturing and layering piano and organ sounds. The Analog section recreates all the elements from classic subtractive synthesizers like the Moog MiniMoog. You can easily manipulate filter cutoff and resonance, and control them with velocity or keyboard tracking as well. With parameter knobs for realtime adjustment of effects, all the swirling phasers, metallic flangers, and meaty chorus effects found on classic recordings are here - crystal clear and faithfully simulated.
From jazz, funk, prog-rock, and pop to fusion, R&B, and avant-garde, this useful effect has conjured incredibly unique tones for a generation of players. The reverb unit has Room, Hall and Spring reverbs to create different atmospheres for your sounds. Clavia will constantly offer a number of various sounds that you can download free of charge from their website. It was like a Yamaha cable or something that had the square part of the end shaved down so that it fit the nord slot! Compression so you dont overdrive (the synth section can pump some intense sounds, almost broke my eardrums before i turned this on), not to mention it can really help with monitoring yourself while playing with other people. I prefer weighted being a classical player, but I've heard synth and organ players might prefer the compact versions waterfall keys.
You'll figure out about 50-60% percent of the main functions without even opening the manual. The mod wheel is made of stone, I kid you not, i think its granite, and the pitch bend is wood and has tension kind of like your pulling a guitar string to do bends.
While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. That‘s why we have absolutely free ground shipping on every single order shipped within the continental United States. Our success in meeting the needs of our customers -- since 1996, we‘ve satisfied over 1,000,000 people -- is due in large part to the fact that zZounds only hires experienced musicians to answer your calls and emails, and they are never paid a commission. The Nord Stage 2 EX features our award winning Piano, Organ and Synthesizer technologies combined with a well thought-out, user friendly interface, a choice of premium keybeds and an almost obsessive level of quality control. The manufacturer will determine whether the defect is covered under their warranty; we do not make that determination. Also, if a school, school district, or board of education purchases an instrument and resells it to an individual, the manufacturer considers the warranty to be void.

At less than 40 pounds, the Stage 88 is among the most easily portable controllers available. You can use 2 sounds of each section at once - that's 2 organ manuals, 2 synths, and 2 pianos layered together! The complex digital modeling recreates every nuance of these unique organ sounds giving you the full arsenal of Organ sounds. The key-click on the Hammond organ model is now a user-defined parameter, so players have even more control over their sound. This synth is like no other that Clavia has produced - instead of digging through parameters and sculpting your sound with a large array of knobs and encoders, the Stage's synth section features the essentials. The FM section recreates the typical FM sounds that dominated the 80s like those from the Yamaha DX7. There is a modulation envelope which shapes both the filter and the oscillator, and an amp envelope to control the attack, sustain, release, and decay of the sound. These effects come at the tail end of your sound-construction potential, allowing you to easily blend with your band whether you're plugged in through the main mixer, or running your sound direct to your amplifier.

Use the Nord Stage's USB port and sample-dump software to swap sounds quickly from your Mac or PC. Generally I use a CX3 or an XK3 for my organ since they just feel better (more Jimmy McGriff for my taste than the NE2). It nicely handles my Korg Micro X and my V-Synth XT (which I just purchased as I really wanted more synth in my rig) giving me some giant sounds when midi'd together or clever splits and routings even for just changing ones program but not having it necessarilly play on the Nord's keys!
I traded up from the Electro and that unit I had for over 3 years which is a record for me!
Sorry Roland, this thing kicks that units butt to Kingdom come)I love the retro vibe and the pound for pound sound. I have been running most of my sounds off of logic to compare, which I think are very very good, and the nord is matching or beating them. Then once you open the manual you'll realize you can do SO MUCH more just as easily as the functions you've already figured out. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans. Wood panels round out the style of the Stage, providing the classic yet discernable look of the Nord Electro2. A Miscellaneous group also exists, for any future sounds that Clavia will develop for the Nord Stage. In an acoustic piano, the vibrating string will make other strings with shared overtones vibrate, creating its very energetic and full sound. A single knob moves you through various oscillators, glide and unison functions are added, as well as a low-pass filter, modulation envelope, amp envelope, vibrato, and and EQ. The synth section includes digital wavetables, which recreate sounds similar to famous instruments like the PPG Wave. I like the Korg CX3 as well but with the dual aspect and the morphing and such you can do some pretty cool stuff here. The best part is if you dont like a sound, the ability to tweak it with equalization, reverb, compression, or effects is a few button pushes away.
Again all these effects are individuially assignable and adjustable to various sections on the keyboard. Complementing the Stage's portable construction is a set of Rhodes-like legs which screw onto the bottom chassis (the legs are sold separately).
The Nord Stage pianos will produce the sympathetic string resonance when each note is hit with the pedal down. The synthesizer unit in the Nord Stage is sonically rich, very easy to use, and has it's own unique personality. However,on another occasion I did get info right away for a different matter so they can be pretty good as well. Like I said earlier, this is my main controller as well so it not only handles my need for Organs, EP's, Clavinet (outstanding), and some synth, but also governs my other modules. I also took the liberty to compare the mark 1, to an actual mark 1 73 that I own and I was able to make them sound pretty much identical running them though a KC-550 amp. The whole idea behind this board is to have as much power and accesibility in a board right at your fingertips and at the same time have the ability to very easily make dramatic changes while mid-performance.
I won't need another keyboard I dont think for a long long time, not to mention I can continually update sounds for free from the nord website. Call us at 866-zZounds (866-996-8637), and we‘ll provide you with a lower price on the phone. This full sound was attained through the development of a completely new sampling engine, which provides the lushest, most accurate and expressive grand pianos ever made for a digital keyboard. The timbre knob varies multiple parameters within the selected oscillator preset, allowing players to sweep between different characters of the sound. Sometimes I love it but at other times I'm finding it lets me down a bit particularly with the limited vibrato, limited pitch bending, no polyphonic portamento, The ADSR section has some significant limitations, and even some notes being cut off due to polyphony restrictions when layering, however, having said that I still find some gems in the synth section and overall I'm certainly glad it's there.
And even in a flight case, it's about 50 lbs (23 kg)which makes it a flight board candidate as well. Now I no longer need to buy any effects pedals for the rhodes because the Nord has every effect I need onboard.
Also, if you purchase from us and later find the product for less elsewhere, call or email us within 45 days, and we‘ll refund you the difference.
This arrangement can be set up from scratch in under 30 seconds with the push of a few (literally just a few!) buttons without going through ANY menu system.
This arragement can now be saved and accessed on the fly whenever you want, and is just as easy to adjust. Oh and another great feature is assignable parameters to various pedals and even the mod wheel.
The synth section I cannot comment on too much because im more of a traditional piano player.
Set up all your effects and controls through foot pedals and switches as well as using on-board commands if thats your preference.
All sounds are catergoriezed into synth lead, bass, or pad which makes it very easy to adjust what kind of sound your looking for, or looking to combine with. Stacking the synths on top of one another or even the pianos and organ on the board can get you some insane sounds effects.
