Nord Lead A1 Analog Modeling Synthesizer

 

We like that the Nord Lead A1 offers big, wonderful analog sounds: huge pads, monster bass tones, classic synth favorites and sounds that you haven’t even imagined yet. We really like that it comes in at a price several hundred dollars below its big brother, the Lead A4. 

 

But what we totally love is that even though it costs a lot less, it doesn’t sacrifice a lot of sounds and features. To the contrary, it does some things better than the A4.

 

Of course the Lead A1 offers big, fat analog sounds—all sorts of classic sweeps, nasty growls and 70s-80s tones that can’t be beat. But this sound engine is designed for fast patch creation. It’s made for creating new sounds easily and quickly, on the fly, onstage or in the studio.

 

Nord has also crammed plenty of features into the Lead A1, with 24-note polyphony, 4-part multitimbre layers, and great effects, including Drive, Chorus, Phaser, Flanger, Ensemble and Ring Modulator.

 

Like all Nords, it’s tough, compact and looks great. And at just over 10 lbs, it’s easy to haul to the gig. 

 

We could keep describing, but we’re reminded of a quote: “Writing about music is like dancing about architecture.” In other words, you really have to experience it firsthand. We think you’re gonna love what you hear.
