I've tried to love it

The Nord Stage has been a standard on many stages for many years, in whatever version / revision. It is flexible, has good sounds and direct controls.

Unfortunately the concept with the Stage 2 EX HP 76 - at least for me - does not work so well. The main reason for me is the keyboard.

It does not fit my sense of play either to the organ section (because weighted) or to the synth section (because weighted and also aftertouch VERY powerful!). This was to be expected (with the exception of the AT). However, I wanted to combine the stage with a second keyboard with SW keyboard to get the best of both worlds.
Amazingly, the 76 keyboard keyboard but also for the piano section, especially EP, did not particularly appeal to me, because fast sound repetitions are difficult to realize, and despite the play of fast, rhythmic chords (funky EP, Clavinet) it is despite different Selectable dynamic curves are very hard and tiring to get the typical funky punch / attack on the strokes / chords. As a result, the overall sound can sometimes be much less powerful, especially when compared to other North keyboards that use the same sounds from the Clavia Nord Library. If the sounds in the Nord Stage are directly compared to a MIDI keyboard (for me: Nord Electro 3 73, or Yamaha S90 88er), a completely different sound and feel is achieved.

The organ simulation
Unfortunately, the Stage 2 EX did not bring the organ section to the level of the current Nord C2D organ, which sounds much better, especially in terms of the Rotary Effect & KeyClick. This was known to me in advance; I mention it here.

But expressly said: For pianistically oriented and more classically oriented players, this version can still be optimal. It is easily transportable. The Nord Stage (concept) itself is out of the question, it is still an ingenious keyboard!

Keyboard upper class with little memory

Florian848, 16.01.2016
A Nord Stage Ex has been my dream for years.

I ordered it and tested extensively.
I like the new "Hammer Action" keyboard surprisingly well! In the beginning it was a little habituation, but for my requirements very good (as I - as for the device thought - times piano, sometimes organ play) it is for me a good compromise.
The operation is perhaps not easy in the beginning, but the longer I play I notice that some is very well thought out.
I like pianos and organ very well.
The synthesis in general is ok, but I am not enough or am somewhat disappointed.
Generally: 1GB memory for pianos (or Claivia, etc)). This is ok, but I can not understand why storage is still saved.
Worse: only 384MB for samples. This is really little in our time. And that there is no extension.
The synth section is otherwise sound good and bold, but I would wish more to adjust.
You can use a sound (program) "only"
- 2 organs (of the same type)
- 2 pianos
- 2 synths
For the synths, this is a problem, as I need more covers as cover band.
It is also to be considered that the effects (depending on the type) are limited. But what did not bother me.

Gernell has often the advantage to build simpler sounds and no sound clouds :-)
I think I have still discovered a shortcoming, that very often sound "were killed" when playing. Must examine again, whether this is a bug, since I have not my opinion the polyphony has been.

The Nord Stage 2 EX inspires me and only the price does not fit on the few memory of the device.
