Clavia Nord Modular G1 / Classic Demos

Clavia Nord Modular G1 / Classic - My Demo #1

Published on Nov 11, 2013 Sylwester Retrospektive·1 video

"Clavia Nord Modular G1 (Classic) Virtual Analog Modular Synthesizer.
Produced in 1998 in Sweden. This little synthesizer is probably one of the mightiest digital synthesizers around. Listen to my demo (multitrack live improvisation).

The sounds in this demo are either self-made or modified original patches.
The composition is only a live improvisation by me."

Nord Modular G1 audio demo

Note the video above is from 2014, but hasn't been featured on the site before. They are all custom sounds.

via this auction

"Patching a modular synthesizer can stimulate your musical creativity. On the other hand, retracing specific patch points through dozens of cables can boggle the mind, and reproducing a patch after you've moved lots of cables is nearly impossible.

In 1997, Clavia introduced the Nord Modular to uniquely address these issues. It combines hardware with a software editor to digitally transform the modular synthesizer experience. The Nord Modular Keyboard's hardware portion consists of a 25-note velocity-sensing keyboard with 18 user-assignable knobs and four independent voice channels for multi-timbral sound, and it sounds incredible!

The Nord Modular's editor software allows you to configure your own synthesizers on a Macintosh or Windows computer - complete with a bevy of module types and virtual cables for conducting audio, control, logic, and slave signals among modules - and download them via MIDI (not USB) to the hardware unit. As long as you don't need to add new modules or reconfigure cable routings, the synth doesn't require an attached computer and can function as a stand-alone electronic instrument. Among the available modules are multiple types of oscillators, envelope generators, filters, EQs, LFOs, step sequencers, waveshapers, audio and logic processors, control modifiers, and mixers. You can design complex patches without hitting the DSP ceiling, the supply of patch cords is essentially endless, and available synthesis types include subtractive, additive, FM, AM, and ring modulation.

List prices in 1998: $2,795 for the Nord Modular Keyboard and $799 for the optional voice-doubling expander board, which this unit has (attached power cord for U.S. AC). It's also running the latest V3.03 OS.

Included in the deal are both a cushy softshell carrying bag and a footswitch. All have belonged to me since 2003 and have never been subjected to cigarette smoke. There are no dings or scratches in the Nord Modular's case and the synth is in perfect working condition. Also included is the original manual and CD-ROM with Macintosh and Windows editors, but you can find updated editor software for both platforms online."

Bus Powered Access Virus TI + Nord Modular g1 25 Synth

via this auction

""Everybody serious in the electronic music scene knows that the Virus and Nord sound cannot be achieved through software plugins alone"
Up for sale is my completed synth project.

Technical Notes:

In a nutshell, the combo is comprised of the following 3 main parts :

1 Novation 25 key SL mkII
1 Clavia Nord Micro Modular
1 Access Virus TI Snow

All parts have been soldered and mounted together inside the novation shell:

the micro modular and the TI snow receive power from the fw800 bus.

(you no longer have to plug them into the wall!)

unlesss you want to of course, all orignal power sockets are intact and accessable from the outside so you can still use wall wart power if you prefer.. the [audio out] of the micro modular is hardwired to the [audio in] of the TI snow. I also left the four micro modular 1/4" jacks accesable so you can plug input the mm voncoder or output the raw mm signal. the midi ports of the micro modular are hardwired to the midi ports of the novation. All original Virus TI Snow and Nord Modular jacks are accessible from the back of the synth (as seen in photo 6) also as you can see from the photo 1 , the main virus volume knob is routed to the upper right hand corner. I also swapped out blue for red on the novation scribble strip. so in total the synth requires 3 cords/ports to operate: 1 FW800 cable for power 1 USB port for novation SL/mkII and micro modular 1 USB port for the Virus TI Snow Also included are original cases and parts for the TI Snow and Nord Micro."

"Spaces in Places" Yamaha MU80 (Percussion) + Nord Lead 1

Published on Oct 21, 2013 Time Synth Project·46 videos

"Here's a simple 8 bar vamp with elaborate percussion I composed on Finale. Nord Lead begins playing at (0:40).
I created controller patches for the Nord and MU80 on the Nord Modular G1. There are no Nord Modular sounds in this, although it was used as the main controller. Whoever messes around with their portamento settings on their MU80? Easily when the midi CCs are mapped to a controller. Also switched in and out of 'modulated delay' preset on the Lexicon MX300. I didn't want the delay on during the complex drumfills."

Nord Modular G1 FM Synth with M4L Plugin in Controller by Cooptrol HG

via Cooptrol HG on The MATRIXSYNTH Lounge:

"For Nord Modular G1 users, I have made an FM synth patch and this M4L plugin to control it. It is a 4 operator FM synth with 8 algorithms, ADSR envelopes, and a resonant filter with AR envelope and overdrive. All knobs on the Modular are mapped to most relevant parameters. You can download this zip with the Nord file, the M4L file and a jpg with the knob mapping."

This reminds me, one of these days I want to design Nord Modular synths with dedicated iPad editors using TB MIDI Stuff or the like.

Nord Modular vs. Octatrack generative madness

Published on Apr 18, 2018

Remember you can use the controls at the bottom of the player to jump around.

"DISCLAIMER: This video is intentionally more about long-form sound design and sample manipulation than lush melodic content.

I created a totally chaotic, generative Nord Modular G1 patch with a lot of cross-modulation and unorthodox synthesis/sequencing. It borders on noise, but there are some tonal elements as well. Basically some really good sampling material for the Octatrack.

I used several tracks on the OT to mangle various parts of the incoming audio, using both normal and one-shot trigs on a few track recorders. I've had the OT for over a year now and am still learning new things to do with it.. and still fumbling a bit, as you may notice!

Audio source is entirely synthesis from the Nord. Octatrack is sampling and providing effects. No external audio processing, apart from a light limiter.

No editing; this is a pretty self-indulgent video but it might be good to skip through and find some interesting parts. I'll probably edit this down and use it as the base for another track at some point.

Here's the Nord patch:"

Clavia nord MODULAR Rack SN 20101579

Note: Auction links are affiliate links for which the site may be compensated.

via this auction

"The G1 is a DSP based virtual analog modular synthesizer. It requries programming via Clavia's editor software, but is fully programmable and very powerful. The editor requires a PC running Windows 95 up to XP, or a Mac running OS 9 up to the latest version of MAC OS. The voice architecture of this synthesizer depends completely on how it is programmed and can configured to be anything from a complex monophonic synth, to a 32 voice poly synth, and anywhre in-between."

So, did the G1 name come only after the G2 was released? If not, then G1 is a user created name.

Clavia Nord Modular Rack G1 // Sound Editing In The Machine - No Computer

Published on Apr 12, 2015 LESINDES

"The NORD MODULAR is normally edited with a computer. The patch creation is done with a dedicated program by Clavia the Nord Modular Editor or Nomad which is another program designed to do that job. But what if you don't if you can't use a computer for the purpose of editing for any reason. This video shows you how to change the sound parameters of a given patch only with the red machine itself even if no knobs are assigned to the patch parameters."

Custom Wood MIDI Keyboard 25 Key 4U Rackmount Case

Note: Auction links are affiliate links for which the site may be compensated.

via this auction

"What we have here is a one of a kind 25 key MIDI controller built into a nice custom wooden case that's meant to be used with any desktop rackmounted synthesizer modules or similar device. The rack is 4U in size and can accommodate most rackmount desktop synthesizers out there including:

Nord Lead 1, 2, 2X, 3, 4 Rack (Nord Lead 1 pictured but not included)
Nord Modular G1, G2
Access Virus Classic, B, C, TI
Roland M1 Rack
Korg MS 20 Rack
Dave Smith Prophet 8 Rack
Elektron A4
Elektron Monomachine
Elektron Octatrack
Future Retro XS
Moog Minitaur
Moog Slim Phatty

and many many more!

You could even mount a 3U Eurorack rig into the case with a MIDI>CV module and have one killer portable Eurorack system (and enough for a space of 1U modules left over)! The case is pretty deep inside and should accommodate most modules.

The keyboard controller inside the unit is an Alesis Q25 and features both pitch bend and modulation wheels as well as octave up/down buttons. The back of the keyboard can be accessed from the rear of the case and includes a USB port, MIDI out jack, and power supply jack.

This is the perfect thing for a musician with lots of rack gear but little way to use them in a live situation or while outside the studio. Very nice build and a great keyboard to boot, just pop in a synthesizer module and go!

You can power the keyboard using USB or AC power. Auction includes USB cable and AC power adapter (the power adapter does not work however and is only included as a reference so you can buy the correct power adapter)."

Note: Auction links are affiliate links for which the site may be compensated.

via this auction

"The Nord Modular range approximates the much more flexible world of modular synthesizers, offering an almost unlimited variation of synth architectures, with the facility to simulate, in addition to subtractive synthesis, additive, FM, and, in the second generation of the series, physical modelling synthesis methods, as well as a number of other sound generation and processing techniques. Unlike most other analogue modelling synth hardware, which generally simulate one or a small number of (usually subtractive ) synth circuit layouts..."

Tenori-On controlling Nord Modular G1

*NEW* my first try on Tenori-On controlling Nord Modular G1
Published on Jul 13, 2013 michal23pl·80 videos

"this is my very first track on those machines. I have programmed all patches in the editor (translating my knowledge from Reaktor 5) except bass. I had all of them them (including Yamaha AW2816) roughly for a few days days so it's a huge triple learning curve. It is gonna take a while to make everything sound nice."
