88-key hammer action keyboard with over 1,000 sounds from the Nord Sample Library.

The Nord Piano 2 HA88 lets you easily play, split, and layer stunning Grand, Upright, and Electric Pianos from the Nord Piano Library with sounds from the versatile Nord Sample Library. All this in a streamlined portable package with 88 Hammer Action Weighted keys.

The Nord Piano 2 comes with a wide range of quality acoustic and electro-mechanical instruments from the Nord Piano Library, all with their own unique character. The included Nord Triple Pedal features a dynamic sustain pedal that can also recreate the mechanical "stomp" and "sizzle" noises that occur when the lifting or releasing the dampener in an Acoustic Grand or Upright Piano. The Advanced String Resonance feature simulates the subtle phenomenon that occurs when piano strings cause other un-dampened strings to resonate, further adding to an amazing level of realism.

The Nord Sample Library offers more than 1000 high-quality sample-instruments ranging from Strings, Brass, Synths and Basses to the legendary vintage sounds of the Mellotron and Chamberlin. Both the Nord Piano and Nord Sample libraries are continuously updated and are available as free downloads for all Nord owners.

All of the sounds in the Nord Piano 2 HA88 are also replaceable, making it an instrument that is built to evolve with you. It's even possible to create your own sample instruments using the Nord Sample Editor.

Nord thinks technology should be transparent to the user, which is why the Nord Piano 2 has dedicated buttons and knobs for all functions the performing musician needs instead of confusing menus. Nord made it amazingly simple to layer and split sounds, and there's a volume pedal input for sneaking in those strings while you keep playing.

The Nord Piano 2 also sports an extensive effects section, covering everything from Phaser, Wah-wah, Flanger, Chorus and Delay effects to a 3-band Equalizer, Amp Simulations, Compressor and Reverb.

  • The ultimate piano: stage or studio

    As reviewed by Charles Hollis on 12/23/2012

    Long time piano-centric keyboard player, always on the lookout for that perfect board: sound, feel, flexibility, etc. I upgraded to this board from a Yamaha CP-5 a month ago, and I'm glad I did. Sounds: the sample-based approach is surreal, the resonance feature seals the deal for me. There's one bank of samples for piano sounds, and a second bank you can mix in, all downloadable from the excellent Nord library. Think of it as piano+. Works for me. The feel is like a well-broken-in grand piano, or better quality upright -- liquid, but still firm enough that you have to work at times. I love how the sounds morph as the touch varies, just like a real piano. The rhodes and wurlitzer voices I can play all night as well, and not get bored. There's a palette of very rich sounds here. I appreciate that I can tweak the sound while playing onstage -- everything is right there, easy to find, no menus, etc. I play through a pair of QSC K8s, and it's the crispest piano sound I've ever had on stage. I've spent more, but never had better. The board is as light as you can be with a weighted feel. Get the Nord gig bag to go with this, it's sweet. It comes with a nice 3 pedal setup that makes me feel I'm playing my Steinway -- it's that good. I've owned Nords for years, and never had a problem. If you want synth, organ, etc. --- look elsewhere -- but if you want the killer piano sounds on stage, this is the real deal. Highly recommended, like the other Nord boards I own.
