This is the right place if your topic concerns different Nord Keyboards, you are not sure which one is the right one for you, etc.

The Grand Lady D has been out for quite a long time now in all Nord keyboards, did you fall asleep for the last 4 years?
** Edit: Just re-read, are you asking specifically and only about the XL sample? **

The White Grand from Nord is the White Grand Sampletekk was talking about, so there is no hope, it is fact that the Nord White Grand is an old Malmsjo grand piano.

Yes, I am asking only about XL version.

Actually this is pure speculation, there has been no official word about that yet (though no denial either)

Hm, that's not how I interpreted the response from the individual who claimed to be from SampleTekk directly...

Sampletekk sells a VST called White Grand, I assume "Per from Sampletekk" was referring to that in his comment, and not to the supposed new Clavia sample.
There hasn't been any official announcement of the hypothetic new Nord piano sample, we're just guessing from a glimpse of a promo video.

Even if a Nord White Grand is released, and even if it really is derived from Sampletekk's namesake instrument, I doubt an employee would lightly make such a flagrant leak on a public forum, openly speaking for his company.

Then again, we'll see. I'm not losing sleep over this, to be honest ;)

Just to clarify: SampleTekk has cooperated with Nord for many years in making instruments. In the beginning, Nord also licensed some instruments that we had released earlier, but for a long time now, the instruments that we work with Nord on, are made exclusively for Nord.
It's up to Nord to release info about instruments that they release.

Grand Lady Dead you mean. That venerable sample fell off the factory load list after years of holding its place there on every new Nord release. Alas, no longer - even Clavia is tacitly admitting that she has seen better days. Now in her place you have the Velvet Grand (muted cheers from the back row) and of course the new flagship, the sample that can't be topped, the one we see on everything now - the Royal Crash Test Dummy 3-D! Perfect for when you bring your Nord on an airplane, to noodle with headphones during those long flights to Kowloon. Buy three seats, you'll need all the trays to support your Stage.

Yeah, I thought releasing something as game-changing as the Nord Grand was a wee bit underwhelming when I saw THAT sample as the go-to in all the promo photos. They couldn't be bothered to craft a new Grand for their new Grand? What ABOUT that Grand Lady XL? We have five Yamahas in the mix now...who predicted that, back when Clavia was exploding out in the world?

Gee everybody, aren't we get ahead of ourselves here? Nobody has yet purchased a NG which is when I would expect a new sample to be released, yet here we all are going on like the White Lady is a foregone conclusion. How about waiting until the Instrument is actually released and in shops, or our hot-sweaty-palms if your wallet allows you, and THEN we can begin to critique the sampled instruments.

Of course that doesn't mean to say I don't have a wishlist either - top of which would be a Bluthner Model 1.


Cheers

I could have sworn one of the stock pianos (Velvet?) was already a Bluthner Model 1...
