sound from nord to nord

Postby margitzurzler » 06 Jun 2018, 21:13

Hey there guys. I will play at a festival this summer and want to borrow a nord stage 2. The problem is that i will fly to the festival (its in london) and its to expensive for me to put my own nord stage 2 in the airplane. Is it easy to load sounds from my nord into my laptop (MacBook Pro) and then on to the nord i will borrow at the festival? thanks for your help - i'm gettin kinda nervous :D

Hi,

the easiest way is probably to use Nord Sound Manager and create a full backup of your own nord, then restore it on the nord you are going to borrow. I think the two Nords have to be the same model (i.e. both Nord Stage 2 EX), but am not sure what happens if you for example borrow a Stage 2 EX and restore a backup from a Stage 2.

Also not sure if both have to have the same firmware revision installed

The 2 EX and the 2 are compatible, but the 2EX has more storage for pianos and samples.

Alternatively, you could save the sounds you need as bundles, which include all necessary samples, and only put those onto the rental machine.

Download the latest firmware and keep it on your computer in any case, so that you can update the rental machine in case it’s on an older version.

Also note that Stage 2 and 2EX are compatible. You will NOT be able to copy programs onto a Stage classic or a Stage 3.

Might be a good idea to test it somewhere beforehand, rather than after getting stuck in traffic and running 20 minutes late for a festival line-check.

Beware piano sample load times :( You could be there for multiple hours if you have many large piano samples.

Also, please keep in mind you'll be completely overwriting whatever board you are "borrowing". If someone overwrote my board (without a backup and restore), I'd be super pissed.
