Nord Piano 5 88-Key Digital Piano

The latest edition of the award-winning Piano series is equipped with dual piano engines, dual sample synths, and twice the memory of the previous generation. With the combination of a premium Triple Sensor keybed and our exclusive Virtual Hammer Action Technology, the portable Nord Piano 5 delivers an exceptional playing experience. The Nord Piano 5 features seamless transitions for glitch-free changing of sounds or programs while playing.

Two Independent Pianos and Sample Synths

The Piano and Sample Synth sections of the Nord Piano 5 each contain two independent Layers. The two Pianos and two Sample Synths can be used simultaneously in a variety of split or Layer configurations. Combined with the versatile effects routing, a wide range of combinations can be achieved - from classic ensemble settings to rich soundscapes. The LED-equipped Level controls allow for quick and precise balancing of all Layer volume levels. A Volume Pedal and/or Sustain Pedal can be assigned to each Layer.

Live Focused Design

The Nord Piano 5 has dedicated dials and buttons for full hands-on control during a live performance. Transposing, setting up a split point, or creating a layered sound can be accomplished instantly. 

Benefits

The Nord Piano 5 factory bank contains 9 Grands, 9 Uprights, 10 Enhanced Electric Pianos, Clavinet, Digital Pianos, Marimba, Vibraphone, and much more from the exclusive Nord Piano Library - all carefully selected for their unique character! Nord’s state-of-the-art sampling technology capture the extraordinary nuances and real character of the source instruments. Our exclusive Nord Piano Library is regularly updated with new unique world-class sounds, and always free of charge. All sounds are easily replaced using the Nord Sound Manager.

Advanced String Resonance

Our unique Advanced String Resonance accurately reproduces the complex interplay of the piano strings and also adds the rich ambiance of a real piano when playing with the pedal down.

Nord Triple Pedal with Dynamic Pedal Noise

The Nord Triple Pedal includes Soft and Sostenuto Pedals in addition to a unique Dynamic Sustain Pedal. The Triple Pedal also enables our Pedal Noise feature that dynamically simulates the mechanical sounds of lifting and releasing the damper mechanism.

Creative Piano Filters

The dedicated piano filters provide an additional level of sonic control, accentuating softness, mid or brilliance for the acoustic uprights and grands. The electric pianos have tailored filters that even include emulations of the legendary Dyno preamp.

Soft Release

A Soft Release-mode adds a slightly longer release, more suitable for legato playing, emulating a looser damper tension in an acoustic or an electromechanical instrument.

Features

3 dynamic curves are available to suit your playing style, from heavy to light. The Sample Synth section provides two fully-featured and independent Layers and is equipped with intuitive controls for attack, decay/release, and dynamic velocity response. The new Soft and Bright Timbre settings provide a quick way of shaping the tone of the sound.

Unison, Tru-Vibrato, and More

The new sample format in the Piano 5 offers several exciting new features. Unison creatively blends several sample voices for rich, ensemble-like sounds, Tru-Vibrato accurately models the unique vibrato characteristics of a wide variety of wind, brass, and string instruments and round-robin allows natural-sounding fast repetitions. In addition synth, sounds are available as monophonic samples with legato. Three delay settings optimized for both acoustic instruments and analog synth sounds are available.
