No more samples from Nord?

Postby RockyRaccoon » 09 Jun 2018, 00:26

Have Nord stopped with their sample updates has anyone heard?

In the Piano library - 0 new grand pianos since 2016, 2 uprights since 2016, 0 electric pianos since 2016.. similar story for other types.

I also noticed that the Nord Sample Library 3.0 is only compatible with the latest versions of the Stage, Electro and Piano but can't see any new things in there anyway.

Am I missing something or has anyone got any info on this?

Thanks.

They release a piano around Christmas every year and at least one set of electric pianos. They spent a while coverting the previous libraries to the new format and rebuilding the sampler to allow sampling to be imported from older version to 3.0. Lots of new stuff there over the last six months.

Multisamples take effort to produce, regardless of upright or grand. Even the electric pianos and digital/layered instruments are multisampled. They released eight such instruments in 2017, five in 2016, and only four in 2015.

In 2015, two major hardware platforms were upgraded in the same year... just like they've done this year. This year isn't even half done, so let's see what happens.

What's missing for you, what needs to be updated?

My wish list includes:
  • Clean Gibson ES-335;
  • Clean Fender Stratocaster;
  • Calliope (a real one, not synthetic);
  • An updated Steinway Model D.

A good all purpose mono acoustic piano sound is still a need.
The Royal Grand has a low end that works anywhere, and while its top end sounds nice at home, it does not cut.
I currently have one of the recent uprights loaded because its top end sounds very nice, and it cuts through in a covers band.
But its bottom end is anemic (because of its source).
Nord - you are so close - you can do this!

A bunch of Gospel synth pianos were announced at some point but never officially released.

A few months ago, some sleuthing members found unlinked stub pages on the Nord website for these pianos, along with download links, and posted them here. A week or two later, the pages were taken offline.

The pianos are preserved here:
