My first synth

Sylvain754, 20.10.2013
The delivery Thomann is perfect, in time (although I am never in a hurry for deliveries, especially when it comes to leisure).

The version of the keyboard is 1.0, being equipped with Linux, Thomann offered to update it before sending it to me, it deserves to be stressed, their service is really great.

Regarding the Nord Lead 4 in itself, simply bluffing, and a quality of manufacture impossible to surpass! I start in music, and yet in a few rotations of potentiometers you end up with a very realistic organ sound, with his Leslie who turns at variable speed (I assigned to the wheel), or if the envy you You can create the sound of the wind, you really feel like you are in the middle of the pole in a shelter with, depending on how you turn the potentiometers, the wind that whistles against the walls, it's crazy enough to The one who shoots movies and who needs sounds!

In any case it is very simple, since this synthesizer does not contain in its memory any sound in the sense of sample of the term, it means that it contains positions of knobs and potentiometers, it means that you can create everything, or almost . Let your imagination run free!

Especially since this synthesizer offers 4 layers, and their operation makes it exactly as if you had 4 Nord Lead 4 superimposed!

The wheel is assignable to any potentiometer, one can assign one to the wheel, or several, the number you want, it's up to you! So the creative possibilities are enormous. Note that there is the general volume, at the top left of the table, but also the volume of the layer, top right, which can be assigned to the wheel like all other potentiometers.

All that I have just explained in this small paragraph with this wheel, can be transposed to the velocity of the keys, ie the assignment of a potentiometer is also possible towards velocity, when you press more or less quickly On a key! Wheel and velocity work well obviously at the same time or not.

The pitch bend stick (the bender) has a lot of settings, 1 octave of slip, several, skewed slip if you need to vary the sound differently towards the bass with respect to towards the treble Around your note.

To reset a layer (the one currently being edited), simply press the "Shift" + "Sound init" key combination, it's handy if you want to start from scratch with all the knobs and buttons in neutral.

The "Octave shift" buttons allow you to go without hindrance to our creativity of a keyboard 88 keys, and also allow to give more depth to your game, while pressing a limited number of keys! Indeed, it is enough to create a sound on one layer, with a certain octave, and to copy it on another layer, but just by changing the octave (higher or lower) is very practical.

This is a great synthesizer, it's just exceptional, no reproach to make it, everything is perfect! Ergonomics, ease of use, immediate accessibility, sounds bluffing, compactness, lightness for transport, connectivity, ...

I confess to being fascinated with the clauses of clavia, and when the nord lead 4 came out I decided to buy it, but by surprise came the nord lead A1 and I enter the doubts of which it elejia, but after comparing them I decided for the NL 4 since except in The effects section, is more powerful and with more possibilities, and I never liked things easy and A1 boasts of it ..
What I liked most is the quality of construction, the unique sound of clavia, the inspiring and easy to modify all the parameters live, lightness and easy transport ..
What would have improved it is that with all libraries that are coming out 400 sounds I have short that it was difficult to put at least 1000 user sounds ......
