Trusted musician and artist reviews for Clavia Nord Lead 3 Synthesizer
Based on 5 Reviews and 29 Ratings
Best interface for an analog modeling synth with patch recall.
LED rings around rotary encoders jump to match actual value when changed by patch load or group (eg: mod wheel or aftertouch) so there is really effective visual feedback for the current state of settings. This doesn't matter for everyone's workflow, for example if you don't change many parameters during performance, but if you do -- it's really helpful.
My beloved red devil. The most intuitive VA synth I've ever owned. Nice sound, easy to program and tweak, no submenu/hidden features hassles: what you see is what you play. Really Genius rotary leds, shame on Clavia (or how the f... it's named today) for leaving this nice led array and for never having released a patch editor. I've been forced to sell it 10 years ago but I have another one today, and will never leave it anymore. And it's the only "nord lead" featuring aftertouch...
Top-tier digital synth with an ideal interface.
Very clean sound quality (not an analog emulation) with an extremely flexible sound engine and the best interface I have ever used. I am very partial to good user interfaces so take that into consideration. It is great for FM-like tones as well.
