Nord Electro 2, 61 keys

Clavia Nord Electro 2 is an electronic keyboard developed in Sweden, by Clavia.

Like its predecessor, the Clavia Nord Electro, consists of carefully sampled and modelled electro-mechanical keyboards: Electric Pianos and Wurlitzer electric pianos, and Hohner Clavinet are sampled. There is also an emulation of the traditional Hammond A100 organ.

Unlike many other keyboards that feature tonewheel organ emulation, the drawbars of the Electro 2 are represented by LED bar graphs and up/down buttons instead of the traditional mechanical drawbars. Multisampled libraries of several grand and acoustic pianos are provided, and other piano samples can be downloaded from Clavia's website.

There is an effect section that emulates popular "stomp box" effect pedals from the '70s and the famous Leslie rotary speaker cabinet. These can be applied to either piano or organ. Additionally, the pianos contain a "presence" control, and the Clavinet includes settings to emulate the various switches found on the original instrument.

The Electro 2 has been released in 61 and 73 note keyboard versions as well as the rackmount Electro Rack 2, which features all the same knobs as the keyboard versions. As with other Clavia products it is distinctive for its red coloration. Unlike the Clavia Nord Stage, it can only play one instrument at a time, although a second keyboard can be attached via MIDI as an additional organ manual.

One of the most prominent users of the Electro 2 is virtuoso keyboardist Derek Sherinian, formerly of the progressive rock group Dream Theater, and now touring with artists such Billy Idol and Yngwie Malmsteen in addition to a solo career in his group Planet X. This keyboard can be spotted very often nowadays, since it is one of the best-selling keyboards today.
