Lead 2X Keyboard

So why change a winning concept, you may ask. Well, we didn't change the concept - or the sound, for that matter. We simply improved the concept and upgraded the hardware to make it possible for the Virtual Analog sound to live on for many more years to come!

The Nord Lead 2X has the same characteristic sound and functions as the Nord Lead 2, except for some very nice improvements:

X-tra polyphony: The Nord Lead 2X comes with 20 voices polyphony - very useful when creating layered sounds, "power pads", awesome leads and booming basses. 20 voices are also very beneficial in sequencing situations when you use more than one sound at a time.

X-tra memory: The Nord Lead 2X comes with a large internal memory holding 4 x 99 user Programs, 100 user Performances and 4 x 10 user Percussion Kits plus 6 x 99 factory Programs and 3 x 100 factory Performances! The Nord Lead 2X is 100% patch compatible with the Nord Lead 2 which means that you can transfer sounds directly between the models via MIDI.

X-tra high resolution: The awesome sound in the Nord Lead 2X is refined even further thanks to the brand new, crystal clear 24-bit DACs running at 96kHz.

Performance controllers

  • 4-octave velocity sensitive keyboard.
  • Octave Shift buttons (+/-2 oct.)
  • Keyboard Split, two sections.
  • Wooden Pitch Stick, designed to change the pitch continuously without any dead spots. It gives you complete control of the pitch and allows you to make true and natural vibrato. The effect increases exponentially as you move it further from the center. Patent pending for the "Pitch Stick".

Oscillator 2 generating triangle, sawtooth or pulse (with adjustable width) and can also generate noise with a color control. Oscillator 2 can be hard synched to oscillator 1. Linear deep frequency modulation of osc 1 from osc 2. A wide range of new waveforms with a strong formant character is achieved with the synchable noise, where noise can be synched to Osc. 1.

Filter section

  • 12 dB "2 pole" lowpass, 24 dB "4 pole" lowpass, bandpass or highpass, Notch + Lowpass. Cut off, resonance, envelope amount, envelope amount controlled by velocity. ADSR envelope. Filter keyboard tracking can be set to full, 2/3, 1/3 or off. Filter distortion.

Echo can be set between 1 and 8 repeats. Modulation envelope (attack, decay) for Osc 2 pitch, FM amount and pulse width.

Nord Lead 2X Synthesiser Reviews

10/10

Nord Greatness

Well what can you say about the company that started it all? The Nord lead 2X expands on the greatness of the originals by giving you extra patch memory and polyphony but still retains the super easy Nord interface and classic Nord sound.
It's like having four prophet 5's in A lightweight easy to use package. The sound capabilities might seem limited but really it is only limited by your creativity. If you get bored with the sounds try adding different outboard effects. It can really change the nord sound from epic trance lines to jazz or RnB leads to ambient drones the nord can do it.
