Everything about the Nord Wave Synthesizer

Wave 2 OS Update?

Postby DJKeys » 03 Apr 2021, 21:51

There are just a couple of minor things that I was hoping for on an NW2 update. The synth has been out almost a year and I really hope Nord sees its way clear to have another update which would:

1. Improve the EQ Drive Algorithm, giving it more power and scope.

2. Allow all layers to by in sync when using Vibrato.

3. Implement Midi Soft Thru.

I know that Clavia has nothing to do with this forum, but I do think they come on from time to time to see what their customers need. Here's hoping!

My wishlist is the following:

1. Tune up the filter drive so its comparable to the Nord Lead A1 and Nord Lead 4. (in present state its just wayyyy to weak.)
2. Individual Vibrato settings for each layer. (useful for multitimbral and splits. ex. a lead will often need a faster vibrato than a pad)
3. Make LFO act as an envelope like on Nord Lead A1 and Nord Lead 4. (this will make S/H more useful and the LFO can act as a second MOD ENV)
4. Make SHAPE possible on wavetables like on Nord Lead A1. (this is a VERY powerful way to get new interesting sounds and they can be modulated unlike the static waveforms we got now)
5. Lower the speed and depth on Chorale.

There's an "official" wishlist thread in the Nord General section of the forum.

Yes but that is for all Nords, not the NW2 in particular. Also, many of the suggestions there are, in my opinion, unrealistic and would require major Architecture/Hardware changes. I wanted to bring focus on a relatively new instrument which may have one more major update in its future.

It wasn't meant as an attempt to moderate, but as a mere indication it was there, since that thread is relatively new and some people may well not know yet. And posting there *might* get some more chance that
the list will actually be looked at by Clavia, which is the original motive as to why it was created in the first place, as opposed to single threads that become eventually less and less visible as new ones get created. As for the lack of Wave 2 section, I am sure that Martin, the creator of the list, would add it straight away.

Having recently owned a second Wave2, and discovering that the main LFO's still don't always sync across all layers even when grouped, this really should be fixed as well. They always work when first grouped and edited; it's when coming back to the patch later on where the issue arises. I ended up sending it back because the mod wheel was not working and I wasn't going to void the warranty to fix it...

I wish multi/single triggering and regular/legato glide could be adjusted independently.

Hi folks,

I've updated the Wish List :)
Nord Stage 3 - Updates / Nord Wave 2 - Updates are now the first two sheets in the doc.
I've narrowed down the wishes from the S4 to S3 wish list to what should be possible via software updates, imho.

In general, I think this list could really be a "central intelligence" to show Nord what we think, would suggest, would like to see improved etc.
I'll also add a category for "experimental" features, and something that COULD actually be in the roadmap of Clavia ;)
Nord Stage 2 EX 88 | Doepfer d3m (walnut chassis) | Numa Organ 2 | DX7 IIFD | Neo Ventilator II
MacBook Pro | Logic Pro | MainStage

I'm starting to really wish we could change the curve of the Velocity on the Filter section.

It feels like it has a really large velocity range when using the Filter envelope and I wish I could constrain it a bit or just have a little more control over it.
