I just purchased a Nord Stage 3 and the crash course learning the Synth section to recreate my Stage 2 programs has been fun. Links to my recent posts with quite a few of those programs at the bottom. An excellent source of information on synthesizers and the keys to programming is the collection of SOS magazine old articles called Synth Secrets at ... d-on-sound.

The program below started out as the preloaded "Furious AT Lead" program. After a bit of messing around, I came up with two variations that I thought were "interesting" and may hopefully be something that helps you further your understanding of what the Stage 3 synth can do as well. Slot A is a synth with a higher harmonic that comes in as the filter is decaying into the LFO range. Slot B is a different synth that starts out with the following settings: LFO MOD ENV about 0, OSC CTRL on 6, FREQ on 1, and RES/FREQ on 6. On the Slot B MP3 you can hear a percussive sound in the notes played low with the left hand; the sounds become more "aggressive" as the FREQ knob is turned slowly from 1 up to about 4 or 5 with the right hand. All of the synth sounds heard after that are the result of turning just those four knobs and playing around. Every Synth program in the Stage 3 is an opportunity to learn, so turn, tweak, and save your work to go back to and tweak again. Have fun.
