        The "Grand" Feel

        Just as with the Piano 3 the Piano 4 features Nords fantastic Virtual Hammer Action Technology which simulates the real hammer movements you would get in an acoustic grand to give you that ultimate grand piano feeling in a portable lightweight stage piano. This paired with the triple sensor keybed allows for precise, accurate playing, and maximum control at any velocity. The Virtual Hammer Action Technology also allows you to even create a note without fully releasing a key, allowing for very smooth repetitions due to the tone not being completely dampened between key strokes, similar to the smooth transitions you could achieve on a grand piano. The keys also have additional weighting across the full keybed to allow the key action feel as authentic as possible and are strictly calibrated to give an even response across the full range.
