Yes - it's official news now.

http://www.nordusa.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=254


Clavia is introducing their next synthesizer at Musikmesse, the Nord Wave.

Essentially, this is a synth featuring analog and FM synthesis, as well as wavetable synthesis. A bonus feature is the ability to import waves into the Wave's internal flash memory - both from a library of sounds available from Clavia, and user waves. An Editor application will be bundled with the Wave, allowing users to download and map their own wave files into the keyboard.

It features an interface similar to the Lead 2X, and the same controls you'd expect on a Lead, vis-a-vis the wooden pitch stick and aluminum mod wheel. There are also some other interesting features, such as an advanced multi-filter, Morphing over time, A/B slots that work like the Stage's Panels, and an effects section that includes reverb, overdrive, and delay.

Clavia classifies this as still under development, so specifications aren't available yet. Unknown factors at this point are price, availability, internal memory capacity, and what - if any - audio formats can be used with the Wave other than 16bit/24kHz .wav files.

Hi-res images aren't available (yet!), but photos of the Wave from Musikmesse will be gathered in this forum. If you find one that isn't up here, please cite the source.

Forgive me for being a bit of hungover-dopey off the mark today and not taking in articles/ links properly : is this <analog elements> as in hybrid / analog elements or analog modelling combined with fm ?

Analog modelling...

I wonder if they cheaped backwards in the FM department the same way they have with the interface...

It also seems to have been cut down to 2 outputs instead of 4...

Cheapened? What, you mean the lack of LED rings? That drove the price up - and the NL2X was released because it was a bigger hit. You stick with what works; in this case, lots of people like the LED rings, but they like the cost of the entire package less.

There were hints before it was released about it having features that were "new for clavia", as soon as I read that I knew... The two things they had always been against having in their lead series... Sampling... And effects...

Anti-sampling? Where have you been for the last 5 years?!

But anyway, I think this is really awesome. Nord knows they're not kings of the "analog" domain, so they're trying new things. I only hope the FM synthesis is 6 operator. Then this will sure be a good buy!

Nord released several sample-based keyboards in the last 5 years.

I guess he's referring to the Sampled pianos and whatnots in the electro 2 and Nord Stage?

that little trickster... I meant in the Leads and modulars...

I usually don't care for Nord.. but this looks cool. If it isn't real. Than Nord will still be ignored by me.

Before this is running of the track. You are trying to say that the Nordl eads were sample based? I don't get it as it says they are all based on a VA engine.

no... He's talking about the electro and stage.

EDIT: This had better be way cheaper than the NL3 or I'll be upset. Like, nord lead 2x cheap.
