Nord Lead 2 & Nord Rack 2 The 2nd classic! In 1995 Clavia launched the original Nord Lead Virtual Analog synthesizer. It immediately became a ground breaking success and set industry standard. Two years later the Nord Lead was followed by Nord Lead 2 which took the virtual analog concept even further, adding a number of improvements and new features. The virtual analog concept combines classic ideas with today's technology. Instead of analog components we use digital signal processors (DSPs) that we program to emulate analog synthesis. The programming is made very carefully to reproduce the warmth and richness of the traditional analog sound. But the virtual analog technique opens up for much more possibilities than 'just' analog sound. You can create crisp or really nasty 'analog-digital' sounds that widely exceeds the limits of competing products. Awesome leads, booming basses, frantic techno - at your fingertips.
