Product Description for the Nord Electro 5D 73

Since its introduction in 2001 the Nord Electro has been the natural choice for musicians in need of authentic emulations of classical electro mechanical and acoustic instruments in a portable and easy to use package.

With greatly expanded memory, the added ability to split and layer and a live focused program section, the new Nord Electro 5 is a highly refined, focused yet flexible stage keyboard.

The Nord Electro 5D 73 uses Semi-Weighted organ type keys with a rounded "waterfall" tip, brilliant for rapid organ shredding and synthesizer licks, but also plays nice with piano sounds. Key range E-E on Electro 5D 73. Feature physical drawbars for the Organ section. The Nord Half-Moon Switch is available as an optional accessory.


The new Electro 5 series all feature 1GB of Piano Sample memory and a new outstanding Factory Bank including 5 Grand Pianos, 7 Upright Pianos, 11 legendary Electric Pianos, Clavinet and Harpsichords. All expertly sampled and brimming with unique character. The subtle but effective Sympathetic String Resonance technology derived from the Nord Piano, is now implemented in the Electro 5 delivering an unprecedented degree of realism to your performance when using our Grand or Upright pianos from the ever-expanding, and freely downloadable Nord Piano Library


The Electro 5 Organ section features an improved Tone Wheel simulation, a new additional Principal Pipe Organ model and the highly acclaimed Rotary Speaker simulation of a vintage 122 unit, taken from the award winning Nord C2D Combo Organ. A new B3 Pedal Bass feature gives you the classic 16” and 8“ bass drawbars in the left hand and can even be used with the Piano and Sample section for a thick and meaty bottom. The Electro 5D 73 feature physical Drawbars and can accommodate the Nord Half-Moon switch with stop/slow/fast modes (optional accessory).


The new Electro 5 features a dedicated Sample Synth section with attack, decay/release controls, dynamic controls (filter/velocity). The Nord Sample Library features a broad selection of free sounds from acclaimed sample producers as well as exclusively licensed sounds of the legendary Mellotron and Chamberlin.


Electro 5 also features new improvements in the Effect section – all effects are now in Stereo, the Delay and Reverb are now separate effects. The Modulation effects now include a Vibe effect and the Amp section features an added Stereo Tube overdrive. Another neat feature is that Tremolo, Pan, Ring-Mod and Wah-wah effects can all be controlled with a Control Pedal.


The Nord Electro 5 has two sound slots that can be combined in a layer or split over the keyboard (Organ/Piano, Piano/Sample Synth or Sample Synth/Organ and Organ/Organ. Each of the sound slots can have specific effects, Control Pedal and/or Sustain Pedal assigned to them – for example chorus and Sustain Pedal on the Piano and some Delay and a Control Pedal on the Sample Synth. The split function includes 6 split points, indicated with LED lights. Each of the effects sections can be assigned freely to either Upper or Lower parts.


The super clear new OLED display offers excellent overview when selecting sounds and editing programs.


The Electro 5 features a new Set List mode that lets you setup the sounds/splits/layers you need for a specific song, with 4 programs per song. The names and order of the Programs can be easily customized on the fly without the need of connecting it to a computer.

Fun, Functional, and Fantastic
Review by Mike
I had bought the Electro 4 HP first, but after testing decided it wasn't for me. Was able to do an equal exchange for the new Electro 5 D 73, and after having played both, I can safely say the 5 is such a more powerful machine. You can actually fit several XL pianos on the board. Splits, layers, and a new screen, not to mention a perfectly weighted keyboard action make this board so fun to play. You might like the HP, but the SW action of the 5 feels so much better balanced for all sounds. I am using it mostly for Rhodes sounds in a band context, and it really slays. Wish it wasn't so pricey, but ProAudiostar had the best price hands down I had ever seen for a new one. I highly suggest calling them up, as they are able to offer better prices not listed on the web. Shout out to Shola for helping me out. (Posted on 12/11/15)
