Clavia Nord Lead Rack 3 Synthesizer

via this auction

"This is the rack version of the amazing Nord Lead 3 virtual analog synth. Excellent condition and works great. Also includes rack ears, original power cable, and manual!

Clavia did something really cool with this synth that it didn't do with any of the other Nord Leads, before or since, and that's the super cool LED graphic rotary encoder knobs on this version. Also, the full LCD screen lets you save patch names instead of just numbers like the previous versions of the synths. And this are just some of the extra features.

Some of what Clavia says about the NL3....

With the Nord Lead 3 Clavia takes Virtual Analog to a higher level and introduces the Advanced Subtractive Performance Synthesizer. ‘Advanced Subtractive’ because of the extremely flexible sound engine, featuring a combination of traditional shapable waveforms and a very intuitive 2 or 4 operator FM engine. All this can be routed through the high quality multi filter for further shaping. ‘Performance Synthesizer’ because of its unsurpassed user interface and play control functions such as: keyboard hold, parallel polyphonic glide in legato mode, single-key triggering of whole chords and even clusters of slightly detuned voices for super-unison effects. The Nord Lead 3 also has four separate Morph groups. The Morph function lets you continuously control defined ranges of up to 26 parameters in a sound, using only a single control source. This lets you produce radical changes to a sound in a very fast and easy way."
