Disproving the theory that less is more, the Nord Electro 3 has been presented with a leading industry award during the recent NAMM 2011 show in California.
Packed full of exciting new features and gizmos, the versatile modelling keyboard has won a Technical Excellence & Creativity (TEC) Award in the Best Musical Instrument Technology/Hardware category.
Voted for by members of various professional organizations and audio industry websites, the nominees for the awards are originally put forward by a panel of industry professionals.
Nord’s Electro 3 series features a modelled organ section, fantastic pianos, which are compatible with the Nord Piano Library and a selection of extremely versatile effects, a feature that allows the Electro 3 to use any samples from the Nord Sample Library.
“The demands from a performing keyboard player haven’t really changed all that much, good quality never goes out of style. We just want to offer you some of the best stuff we have, in an affordable and easy-to-use instrument. We hope that you will have as much fun owning and using the Electro 3, as we have had developing it,” Nord explains.
Musicians will find that they are able to get the Electro 3 in a 73-note or 61-note version, both of which feature the semi-weighted ‘waterfall’ keyboards.
The TEC Awards are a major awards scheme acknowledging the achievements of audio professionals. It aims to recognise the contribution made by individuals, companies and technical workers behind the sound of recordings, live performances, films, television, video games and other media.
Meanwhile, another winner in the TEC Awards was Solid State Logic which picked up two accolades in the Large Format Console Technology category and the Small Format Console Technology category.
