I still love mine. No plans to upgrade to NS3. I found a Korg Kronos 2 61 at a pawn shop and bought it. Great workstation, but my NS2 is my get out the door and gig Swiss army axe.

This is simply not true. I have been using my NS3 live for a year with no issues at all, through all software updates.


I concur. Nord may still be tweaking the OS, but there are no showstoppers.

Count me among the many who love their SW73, which is my first Nord. I concur that their current lack of availability is a testament of how popular the board is. I’m still learning about how to take advantage of the full range of sounds available, a discovery process that will take quite awhile. The NS3 looks great, but I’m content with my original choice and expect many more years together.

I agree. I use mine for live playing weekly, and there hasn't been any showstoppers or major issues for a LONG time. It is quite stable and there are no showstoppers for me either.

Hi MEL868,

I suggest to keep your NS2 and wait for the NS4! Don´t hit on G.A.S. (like I do). :silent:

The buy/sell page on this forum is obsolete some of the posts there are sooo old. I found one instrument same as mine on eBay at a fair price but I’m not ready to buy now. I’m just upset I cannot readily order me another new one whenever I want. I’m not comfortable buying used. I just hope mine keeps workouts by excellent.
