The Nord A1R is the rack mountable tabletop version of the new A1 synthesizer. There are no keys on the A1R, making the interface more streamlined with some new features to make programming sounds easier: the useful Mutator from the Lead 4 and a Like button. Not forgetting the Unison mode that lets you achieve a real phat vintage analog synth sound. This thing sounds great.

Show full description »

This is the new Nord Lead A1R analog modeling synthesizer rack – a stunning sounding synthesizer with a simplified yet hugely powerful front panel interface.

Producing stand-out sounds for live or for the studio, the Nord A1R is ideal for all musical genres. Thanks to its carefully thought-out user interface, the A1R encourages experimentation, allows for far speedier programming and ultimately delivers sensational sonic results.

A1R - Nord's best-ever analog modeling...

At the heart of the A1R Synth is our new analog modeling engine. Taking our virtual analog synthesis to the next level, this modeling recreates a total analog signal path with uncanny realism, and is capable of immense sonic variety. With 24-voice polyphony and four simultaneous synthesizer parts, the Lead A1R is a true synthesizer powerhouse that goes far beyond the current trend for limited capability analog reissues.

...combined with our most intuitive interface

Fundamental to the design of the Nord A1R is a brand new simple yet sophisticated front panel interface. The design is in fact the result of requests from professional players – even the most experienced programmers - who need to create the perfect sound as quickly as possible for today's live or studio time demands. The Lead A1R allows easy patch creation and experimentation thanks to a new and unique oscillator section, pre-programmed modulation matrix, and simplified ADR envelopes. Dive in and create incredible patches far quicker than would normally be possible with a synthesizer of such power.

ADDED FEATURES SINCE NAMM JANUARY 2014

Like button - Unique to the Nord Lead A1R is the new 'Like' function, a simple and brilliant practical feature to use during patch creation. When programming a patch it's often not clear if it's yet perfect. Now you can simply 'Like' what you've done into a temporary location and continue editing. You can Like up to 50 variations, with the ability to scroll between them to compare your favourites or go back to a specific Liked version to edit in a different way. When you're ready, save your favourite patch or patches to the memory.

Mutator Function - A popular feature of the Lead 4, the Mutator function allows variations of a patch to be created by adjusting one, some, or all elements of a patch by set percentages. There's also a wild Randomize mode to create an entirely new patch with all parameters randomized.

Unison - A newly designed "Fat-As-Fat-Can-Be" Unison Mode let's the Lead A1R challenge any vintage analog instrument.

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

Please fill in the following form to request a price match.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.
