Is there a point to release a NL5 when there is the Wave 2?

Yes, if Nord does release a new synth, it would be the Wave 2 probably. I think the A1 and Lead 4 were the last of the Lead series-

The Wave 2 is anything but not a "Lead" successor. There are too many limitations in the classic synth section, even compared to the A1. The Wave 2 mainly lives on the samples and the effects.
I really hope for a NL5 with all the good ingredients of the NL4 and the A1, and of course a proper 5-octaves keybed with AT and OLED-displays.

100 % agree

I believe that a Lead 4 or A1 successor will have the same 4 octave keybed. I would rather see new features in OLED and programmable arpegiator (and one or two new effects from the existing synths).
