The B3 model of the Nord C2D is the result of over a decade of perfecting our tone wheel simulations, a journey that started with the original Nord Electro and followed by the award winning Nord C1 and Nord C2 Combo Organs. Not only have we analyzed the signals from each of the 91 spinning tone wheels inside several original instruments – we have also paid years of attention to each and every one of the intricate details that make up the characteristics of the actual sound in a vintage organ.
Our simulation not only reacts to the panel settings but even adapts to the real time performance and will faithfully reproduce the important foldback and energy robbing characteristics; the latter produces the gentle compression effect that makes those lovely smears absolutely wonderful. There are 4 tone wheel modes available, ranging from the default vintage battered workhorse with plenty of leakage to a clean factory spec’d instrumen
With 2 sets of physical drawbars per manual, extremely realistic simulations of a B3 tone wheel organ, Vox and Farfisa transistor organs and a beautiful sampled baroque pipe organ the new Nord C2D is the ultimate portable organ solution.

Full hands on control
Having two sets of drawbars per manual and the new left hand drawbar preset panel makes using drawbars actively while playing a joy. The new preset panels let you instantly switch between drawbar sets and features 3 user programmable drawbar preset buttons per manual.
The Nord C2D 61-key waterfall keyboard offers an ultra-fast response and has a firm mechanical action to provide you with the rock solid feel of an original vintage instrument… For increased ergonomics the panel and upper manual has been tilted slightly towards the player and the panel between the manuals have a smooth surface that’s easy on the hands when doing smears.
THE PIPE ORGAN
The Nord C2D pipe organ is based on a carefully selected baroque organ with a devastatingly beautiful sound and wide range of expression. Using cutting edge sampling technique, no efforts have been spared in producing a rich and varied sound palette for the pipe organ player.
