With the release of the original Nord Lead, Nord coined the phrase “Virtual Analogue” for their new digital-based subtractive synthesizer. Nord 2 is the revised version of the original Lead and this is the desktop / rackmount version

The Nord 2 has 16-note polyphony, four individual outputs and a standard PCMCIA slot for patch & performance storage. Additional features over the original version include a ring modulator, oscillator 1 syncing to the white noise generator, sine wave waveform for osc 1, more arpeggiator & LFO waveforms and variable distortion settings

The synth can be used as a desktop unit or rack mounted with optional rack ears

“NL2 is killer fat and easy to use synth”

“It’s considered one of the best sounding Nords and they were the original VA’s. The original Nord is all over the Nine Inch Nails The Fragile album and countless others and is certainly considered a modern day classic”

“I have a good selection of analogue synths & wouldn’t sell my NL2 because I haven’t found anything like it. It can be impolite, yet smooth (almost like an old analogue)”
