wave to the future
the name says it all really. by introducing the oscillator to waveforms – not just single wavetable-style waveforms, but complete
user-defined, key-zoned and multi-layered sampled waveforms – while keeping the full virtual analog circuitry intact, clavia has once
again opened a new dimension and brought new life to the world of synthesizers.
use any audio snip you like. if it can be saved as a standard wav-
file, it can be used as a sound source for your synthesizer. you
now have the full expressiveness of the classic analog synthesizer
combined with sample technology available at your fingertips
– all in a top quality, user-friendly and lightweight package.
a multitude of oscillator models
by offering not only a large array of virtual analog oscillator
models, but also fm, wavetable, and sample-playback waveforms
you have the ultimate synthesis sound source in a vast
number of combinations. different models can be used simultaneously
and modulated freely in a classical synthesizer setup.
you are in control
by having every sound-related parameter represented by a
physical control on the front panel – just as with the vintage
analogue originals – you have instant access to tune your sound
as you go. no menus or page buttons are in your way.
no harddrive or loading times
in the studio, you might have the time to sit back and sip some
coffee while your computer is busy loading two tons of samples.
however in a live situation it is all about being in the moment,
and you need immediate access to all samples. that’s why it is
so great that the nord wave has no hard drive or loading times;
once you have powered up the unit you have immediate access
to all samples by the turn of a knob.
we know you prefer quality over quantity, and the nord wave
comes with a 100% gm-sample free guarantee. the samples
installed when shipped from the factory holds up to the highest
clavia standard, and provide a wide palette of sounds for your
live performance. all with that extra flavor needed for your
sound to stand out. plus, there is plenty of room for you to fit
your own samples, or to download even more top-quality ones
from the clavia website - all for free.
everything in the sample memory area is completely user-definable
- if there is a sample you do not prefer you can remove it
and use it’s space for more of the things that you do like.
easy to use editor
clavia’s vision and long term goal has always been to build the
best possible instruments for the gigging musician. to offer superior
quality and stunningly complex sound controlled through
an intuitive user interface. the same goes for our sample editor,
specially developed for the nord wave. it has neither bells nor
whistles and is only intended for one thing; beeing the quickest
and easiest tool for getting your samples laid out over your
keys. it lets you focus on your music rather than on a piece of
morph in time
almost any synthesis related parameter can easily be connected
and individually controlled by a morph source such as
the modulation wheel, expression pedal, keyboard velocity or
keyboard note. complex morph scenarios are available, but setting
them up could not be easier or more intuitive - simply hold
the corresponding morph controller button pressed down and
tweak the parameters all you want. when operating the associated
morph controller, parameters will seamlessly change to
their programmed position. also, you can record your morphs
along a timeline.
the filter section features more than just 24db analog-modeled
resonant filters. in addition to the low-, high-, and band-pass
types with envelope and velocity control, there are filter-type
combinations, as well as a formant filter, giving you the ability to
twist any sound out of control in real-time.
two of everything
sometimes you want more, and the nord wave gives it to you.
using the a and b slots, you actually have two synthesizers that
can be used at once. you can switch seamlessly between slots or
layer them together by using the a and b slot buttons. both slots
are saved within a program and instantly recalled just as you
powerful effect section
eq, delay, tube-style amp and several types of reverb give you
that extra touch to truly make your sounds stand out. the tube
amp features a massive overdrive, and the delay has a nice vintage
character as well as tap-tempo function.
stick to the pitch
the clavia patented wooden pitch stick offers no dead zone at
zero crossing, and its ergonomically design will give you the
same vibrato and pitch control as that of a guitar player.
the exclusive clavia hardware and software design brings you
response times from note-on to sounding output like no other.
the ultra-low latency simply does not compare to other hardware
or especially software products.
weighing only 6kg (14 pounds) it is the kind of instrument you can easily carry with you and that you’ll barely notice ... until you plug
