My NORD S4 on my first ever music release!

Postby spradders » 30 Oct 2023, 18:21

Hi everyone!

PLEASE be generous and go stream my first ever music release!! All done on the Nord :)
It's on Spotify / iTunes / Amazon etc all links here: https://linktr.ee/kian_mike

It's a simple Whitney cover, but you'll hear vocals plus:
- Elec piano (80s style dx7)
- Strings
- Pad

The three keyboard sounds are straight from the Nord Stage 4 compact. I didn't apply any effects, just recorded direct into my laptop via an interface. The Nord sounds so rich! I added a little compressor and tried to even out the elec piano in places, it's a bit too bright. Happy to share my settings if anyone's interested.

But please give it a listen... maybe a like or add to playlist :angel: :angel: :angel: :thanks:

NORD ROCKS!!

Thanks! Yeah her voice is immense... she recorded that via a mic plugged into a PA plugged into her PHONE ... and then sent it to me to mix etc. She did it in one take, just sitting on a stool, effortless. We'll do more!!
