BackUp Nord Stage 2 to Nord stage 3 ??

Postby angel_fm » 21 Jul 2021, 13:19

Hello everybody!

First of all, sorry if this is not the right place to ask my question, I am new to this forum.

I have a Nord stage 2, and in the next few days I have a concert where they are going to put me to play a Nord Stage 3. My question is .... is there any way I can load my NS2 backup onto the NS3?

Thank you very much in advance for your time!

Hello angel_fm,

unfortunately the short answer is NO.

Stage 2 and 3 have different architectures with prevent backups from sharing.

Unfortunately no, although they have a similar architecture, they are different instruments and the programs from the NS2 are not compatible with the NS3.
Probably your best option is to visualize and save the settings from you programs with this awesome tool developed by one of our users
Then you will be able to reprogram the NS3, trying to get as close as possible.

The better option could be to try to get a Stage 2 or a Stage 2 EX for the concert. Both should get along with your saved programs (as far as I know).
