As a keyboardist, Harrison still prefers playing old hardware keys to soft synths. He's a fan of the Clavia Nord Electro 2 (see Fig. 2) and plays an Emu Emulator III, a Hohner Clavinet, a Nord Lead, a Sequential Prophet 5, a Sequential Prophet T8, a Waldorf Microwave, and a Wurlitzer.more
"With the Shakes, I have a pretty sweet right now. They recently bought a road-worthy B3 that has folding legs and fits into a road case. So I usually have that and a Rhodes and the Nord Electro. The Electro i normally use for just piano sounds unless the Rhodes is having issues, which happens from time to time."more
I actually own the electro 2 61 key...but I didn't want to go through the hassle of setting up that keyboard. Honestly this is one of the best keyboards around, it's definitely geared towards the more electro mechanical sound of things. So anything like the Rhodes sound will be impressive. The piano sound is bad, however it's not the best thing either. Either way I love this piano.
This keyboard is a bit dated (2002) and the sounds are not really good! But the construction is amazing and as a midi controller, it is very good! Every knobs/buttons can be assigned and it's easy to change midi channel on the fly.
