It's interesting how frequently there are posts on this board that end up at: "Clavia doesn't do what I want them to do, therefore they must be malevolent or incompetent (or both)."

I hope that is not how I am coming across. I never said any of that. In a nutshell $4000 is a huge investment in a perfect world a few more things would be nice that's all..

Share with me the sound you're trying to make or the two programs you'd like to combine and let's talk about how to leverage the instrument to make that happen. I've been very impressed with what I have been able to coax out of both NS2 and NS3. Getting to know the instrument is part of what's required to get past the perceived barrier of "it can't combine programs so it's not meeting my needs."

Personally the only thing i really wish for is a synth section that allows me to combine a sample and synth based sound (on the same panel of course). If osc 1 could be a " sample or synth based sound" then a osc configuration option to mix in another "sample or synth based sound on osc 2".

I didn't start the thread on this.. Not to be blunt but I have been layering/coaxing out sounds since the casio days 30 years ago ( now i am showing my age lol )i can get all the sounds i need from my ns3 I would just be able to make things sound even more powerful with that option..

These boards don't cost that much to make as per usual the public is overcharged for many things in life but maybe its just me... I love this board but just like any "high end " piece of musical equipment we pay too much...

This is just bizarre.

Components cost nothing, therefore every dollar we pay on the end device is too much?

Back when I was more in tune with the Hi-Fi business, the rule of thumb was that after all margins and overhead, the cost of a part would need to be about x10 on the end product, all other things equal.

So adding a $10 part instead of a $1 part would be about 90$ on top for the customer. Adding an extra 50€ in components and circuit board would be about a €500 premium. (The exact balances and factors may vary, but the basic idea is still true.)

I’m pretty sure that manufacturers including Nord tend to start with end price and a feature list and work backwards from there to see what can be implemented at what trade-off, for the best balance in the final product.

Your putting words in my mouth.. I have many a friend who have worked in small and big music stores.. depending on how much and what you are ordering the markup can be pretty substantial...
