Piano Selection
Nord Electro 3 series are compatible with the Nord Piano Library, a continuously expanding sound library filled with amazing grand pianos, uprights, vintage electric pianos, clavinets and harpsichords. Our sounds have been carefully selected for their unique characters and deliver stunning realism thanks to state of the art multisampling techniques and String Resonance, providing you with an unprecedented expressiveness. The sounds are included on the Nord Piano Library DVD and can also be downloaded for free in our Nord Piano Library section.

The Electro 3s come preloaded with a selection of these fine sounds. Replacing them couldn't be easier - just connect the Electro 3 to the USB port of your computer, start the Nord Sound Manager and drag and drop the desired sounds to the desired program location.

In addition, the Electro 3 HP not only features a Long Release mode that adds a slightly longer release to Piano sounds, suitable for playing Legato Piano parts but it has a dedicated button for disabling the String Resonance feature temporarily.

Effect Section
The Nord Electro 3 is equipped with a great selection of high quality effects including a lush sounding reverb with five different reverb types. There is also a selection of tremolo, panning, wah-wah, phaser, flanger, chorus effects, and a ring modulator.

For adding a final touch to your sound, there's a selection of amplifier simulations - for anything from warm fuzz to devastating mayhem. 
A user friendly three-band EQ with a sweepable mid-range and a compressor can be added to the final stage of the audio path.

The new Electro 3 HP additionally features a flexible Delay effect with Tap-Tempo, Rate, Amount and a stereo Ping-Pong mode.

It's easy to change, edit and store presets and Live mode saves what you're doing automatically. The Program memory can hold 128 different Programs, and these are organized in 2 Program Banks with 64 Pages each.

Having dedicated knobs and buttons for all vital functions and keep the interface simply and easy to use during a performance is one of the main focuses. We don't believe in submenus, and the only functions in the Electro 3 that only are available through menus have been printed on the panel so you don't need to read the manual.

The Electro 3 HP has 4 Live locations, the Electro 3 has one. Also the Program memory of the Electro 3 is organized in 4 Program Banks with 32 Pages each.
