We just received a note from those lovely fellows at Clavia who make the Nord Stage â€“ itâ€™s undergone a little transformation, both cosmetically and what lies beneath the hood.
Increased memory capacity for the piano samples. The EX units have twice the internal memory capacity compared to the previous models, an increase from 128 to 256 MB.
The front panel sports a new color scheme.
The EX 88 and EX 76 models have labels printed on the front panel upper rim to indicate the position and function of the rear panel jacks.
The release of the Nord Stage EX will be accompanied by the release of a new grand piano, the Yamaha mk2 XL version, with more additions to the downloadable Nord Piano Library to come in the following months. Any additions to the Piano Library will also be compatible with the previous Nord Stage units.
