The Nord Piano 4 features two sound sections that can be combined in a layer or split over the keyboard. Each of the sound sections can have specific effects, Volume Pedal and/or Sustain Pedal assigned to them. The Piano 4 has 7 Split Points indicated with LED lights and the Split Point Crossfade functionality, introduced with the Stage 3, offers smooth transitions between two split zones. Choose from 3 different crossfade widths (Small, Large or Off) as indicated by different LED colors.

Refined Program Section

The optional Numeric Pad Mode gives you instant access to Programs by entering the Program number.  

Piano Section
The enhanced Piano section features a broad selection of our latest acoustic, electric and digital pianos from the exclusive Nord Piano Library, greatly expanded voice polyphony and creative new Piano Filters.

Factory Bank
The Nord Piano 4 factory bank contains the latest Grands, Uprights, Electric Pianos and Digital Pianos from the exclusive Nord Piano Library; all handpicked for their unique characters! Nord’s state-of-the-art sampling techniques capture the extraordinary nuances and real character of the source instruments with breathtaking realism.

All sounds can easily be replaced using the Nord Sound Manager. The exclusive Nord Piano Library is constantly updated with unique world-class sounds, and always free of charge.

Advanced String Resonance
The unique Advanced String Resonance reproduces the intricate interplay of piano strings resonating at their fundamental or harmonic frequencies when other notes are played on our Upright and Grand piano sounds.

Creative Piano Filters
Providing an additional level of sonic control, the Piano Section now features dedicated piano filters for accentuating softness, mid or brilliance.

Outstanding Piano Experience

Virtual Hammer Action Technology
The exclusive Virtual Hammer Action Technology, introduced with Nord Piano 3, simulates the hammer movements in a Grand Piano delivering outstanding authenticity and dynamic response. The Triple Sensor keybed allows key movements to be determined with stunning precision. The result is a keyboard action that handles dynamic playing with amazing control at any velocity level.  

The Nord Virtual Hammer Action Technology enables you to produce a new note without lifting the key completely. This allows for smoother repetitions as the tone is not completely dampened between the strokes, similar to the fluent transitions possible on a Grand Piano.

Extended Triggering Range
The keyboard technology makes both top and bottom triggering possible, resulting in amazing control when playing percussively as well as pianissimo with the keys half-pressed down.

Grand Weighted Action
The updated key-bed has added weight for improved dynamic control providing authentic Piano touch and feel. The individual Fatar key-beds are meticulously calibrated at the Nord factory to ensure an even response over the whole range.

Nord Triple Pedal with Dynamic Pedal Noise
The included Nord Triple Pedal includes Soft and Sostenuto Pedals in addition to a unique Dynamic Sustain Pedal. The Triple Pedal also enables our Pedal Noise feature that dynamically simulates the mechanical sounds of lifting and releasing the damper mechanism.

Soft Release
A Soft Release-mode adds a slightly longer release, more suitable for legato playing, emulating a looser damper tension in an acoustic or an electromechanical instrument.

Dynamic Curves
3 dynamic curves are available to suit your playing style, from soft to hard.

Sample Synth Section

The Sample Synth Section features expanded memory for the Nord Sample Library 3.0 and extended voice polyphony.

The Sample Synth Section contains a great selection of high-quality sounds from the Nord Sample Library 3.0 including the exclusively licensed sounds of the legendary Mellotron and Chamberlin. All sounds can be quickly replaced using the Nord Sound Manager.

The Sample Synth is equipped with essential controls for attack, decay/release, and dynamics (filter/velocity). A unique Nord feature allows you to create your own samples using the free Nord Sample Editor software for Windows and Mac.

Effect Section
The Effect section features a great selection of instantly tweakable high-quality stereo effects modeled after classic stomp boxes. All effects can be assigned freely to the Piano or Sample Synth section.

Effects 1 - Pan, Tremolo, Panel Effects
Wah-wah and Ring Modulator. All effects can be controlled with a Control Pedal.

Nord Piano 4 disappointment


Great samples, controls are easy to use, sections are divided on a very logical way. The action on the keyboard is good nothing spectacular but decent, a little bit noisy. My disappointment came when the key for the G below the middle C got stocked. So I had to return it. I had owned two Roland Digital pianos the RD700SX and the RD800 and the action is great and never had a problem. Researching I found that the majority of companies don't manufacture the key bed they buy it from Fatar an Italian company. Except for Kawai and another company. So I am thinking on Nord Stage which Kawai manufacture the keyboard for them.



Nord makes an awesome product


Fantastic keyboard, son was thrilled to get it for Christmas.



Sounds and feels incredible


Nord 4 sounds incredible and has an unmatched touch and feel to it. Sound library is amazing and easy to update/customize. Use it for recording and as a workstation. You'll want to create, play and practice more because it's so fun to play. Highly recommend if it's in your price range.
