The Electro 3 HP from Nord is a 73-key virtual electro mechanical organ, piano, and Mellotron instrument with fully-weighted, velocity sensitive hammer-action keys. It comes loaded with authentic sounds with every detail you'd expect to hear in vintage instruments, from the pedal down sounds to the key off noises. What sets the Electro 3 apart is its dedication to tasteful and playable instruments, and its simple and intuitive interface that allows the musician to fully concentrate on making music, and nothing more.

There are 9 digitally controlled drawbars on the Electro 3 that are just as easy to use as mechanical drawbars. There's an "Up" button and a "Down" button for each drawbar, and pushing them makes the LED column above go up or down. The great advantage is that you can change sounds, and the LED drawbars will instantly adjust and display in the position they were in when the preset was saved. You can save 17 of your own presets for each organ on the Electro 3.

A host of built-in effects are supplied that enable you to tweak a sound to your liking. Use reverb and chorus to sweeten up the tone, or throw in an amp simulator to rip open your sound. Additional sounds are downloadable for free from the Nord website to broaden your palette of expression (the Mellotron sounds are available from the site). You can also load your own samples into the Electro 3 for a totally custom sound. This keyboard was designed for the active musician, and it can easily travel with you, where ever your music takes you.
