      --Available Now--

      The Electro 3 has long been a popular Nord instrument and with growing popularity, a new model has been added to the range. The new Nord Electro 3 HP houses a host of new features making it a more desirable Elctro than ever before. New Features include:

      • 73 Note hammer weighted piano action
      • New long release mode to add extra release to piano samples suitable for legato parts
      • Dedicated string resonance button - allows enabling and disabling of the string resonance feature for piano
      • Additional Delay effect with Tap-Tempo, Rate, Amount and a stereo Ping-Pong mode
      • 4 Live locations compared to 1 on the Electro 3 for immediate storing of live changes
      • 4 Program banks with 32 pages each

      73 Key Piano Action

      The Electro 3 hp sports the addition of a hammer weighted keyboard. The response and touch is as you would want from a real piano to be, therfore the acoustic simulation of the Electro 3 is now more realistic and responsive than ever before. The Piano sounds inside the Electro 3 are the same high quality samples found in the Nord Stage piano range. Sounds can be updated via the Nord Piano Library, downloadable from the Nord website. Simply connect a USB cable between the computer and Electro 3 and you can transfer more quality sounds back and forth to the Electro 3 HP memory.

      Organ Section

      The Electro 3-HP houses the Nord C1 organ engine. The attention to detail is stunning, 3 organ selections are available including Vox Continental, Farfisa and the ever classic B3 organ. Even noises created by the orginal organs themselves, such as the rotating wheels in the B3, have all been sampled creating the most accurate experience of any drawbar organ you will find. 

      LED lit drawbars controlled by buttons are highly visible on stage, easy to use and fast to respond. Drawbar settings can of course be stored into the Electro 3-HPs internal user memory for instant recall during live play.

      Nord Sample Library

      With full support for samples from the Nord Sample Library the Electro 3-HP as an almost infinite engine for your sounds. Samples can be loaded and editied from the Nord Sample Editor software, use your own samples or select from the vast choices already available in the Electro 3 engine or Nord Sample downloads availbell on their website.

      Classic sounds are availble including selections from the old yet unforgettable Mellotron. Whether you want a String orchestra or classical guitar, the Electro 3 can do it, all in one portable, lightweight package.
