Everything about the Nord Piano and the new Nord Piano 2.
I should mention I was trianed in classical pianno on an acoustic piano for 8 years, I just like layering my own orchestra sounds with it since owning a dgx.
Re: Tool to record and playback?
To be honest, I'm not familiar with arranger-type keyboards. If you're happy that the Stage 2 does everything you want, then go for it. The cost will be repaid in full by having a classy, inspiring keyboard that really is a musical instrument rather than just an electronic device. Frankly, it was really the Nord Piano rather than the Stage which was concerning me. The Stage is a vastly more powerful instrument.
Perhaps i should bite the bullet and buy the nord stage then =/ thats going to kill my bank account. Ill be eating baked beans while playign beutiful music for the next year,
Ultimately, I can't really advise you on what to do with your money. It's really just about laying out the different technical options so you know what your choices are. But if you're going to cause yourself genuine financial hardship, then take your time to choose wisely. It's easy to get caught up in the thrill of buying new gear. As the saying goes - "Buy in haste, repent at leisure".
No worries I am going to the shop tomorrow to try both the nord piano 2 and nord stage 2. I have the money its just I have a target sum of money I am trying to save up for a house and it is still possible for me to reach that target whilst buying the nord stage 2 but it dosent leave much room for error. On the other hand that is a personal target not anything that will cause me problems if I don't reach it. In fact at most it would delay my target by 6 weeks. Dosent sound so bad when I put it that way. ANyway I will know more after I try the two piano's tommorrow.
You should know the Piano 2 and Stage 2 aren't really different from each other in terms of basic sound, they both load and use the same pianos and sample library. The Stage just does a lot more as well.
Yup, but the stage does far more than I would ever require it to do. I still consider myself a pianist who only dabbles in arranging. If the piano 2 could layer more sounds or record then it would do everything I want. But if one keyboard is better than the other in terms of feel that could also sway me either way. SO far i have only ever liked yamaha graded hamma keyboards, even roland i find too light and apparently nord is even lighter which worries me somewhat and is the main reason i want to play them before buying.
Just like to say thank you to all who responded. Since playing them and some other keyboards I am pretty set on buying a roland rd700nx instead. Your help has been much appreciated though =)
Have you tried the Yamaha Motif XF ? ...

No, I heard someone else mention that, it wasn't in store though. Whats the advantage of the motif over the roland?
