Musikmesse 2013: Nord Launches the Lead 4 and Lead 4R Synthesizers (updated with video)
Nord's new Lead 4 is a 4-part multi-timbral synthesizer sporting a brand new 2-oscillator virtual analog sound engine with 2x oversampling. In addition to the classic analog waveforms there's a Wavetable mode with unique new Formant Wavetables. Frequency Modulation and Hard/Soft sync options are available for manipulating your sound further and the True Voice Unison mode can stack up to four oscillators per voice for really thick, meaty leads and pads.
The Lead 4 and 4R's filter section boasts Low Pass (12/24dB), High Pass, and Band Pass filters and also stunning new simulations of two transistor and diode ladder filters capturing the squeaky, dirty character of the originals. A dedicated filter overdrive can distort your sound even further before before it even passes through the effect section.
The new Variation buttons on the Lead 4 and 4R will allow you to override almost any parameter of the synthesizer, instantaneously. Have you ever wished you could change LFO speed, Modulation routings and reverb amount - all at once, in the middle of a sound? With Nord's Lead 4 you can!
Boasting a huge number of features this Synth comes in two versions - The Lead 4 has a 49Â-key velocity sensitive keyboard whilst the Lead 4R is the Tabletop/Rack version.
