Clavia's new Nord Modular G2 platform, designed with a focus on live performance, offers a fully assignable modulation wheel, pitch stick and rotary encoders to turn, bend and tweak. The four separate LCDs on the front panel provide an overview on the user's patch creation.

The G2 also provides features such as rotary encoders with circular LED graphs (the LED graphs instantly show the correct values of the parameters the user chooses), programmable parameter pages (which guide in sound editing work and patch creation), patch variations (which lets the user create and store eight different complete parameter setups per patch), a Performance mode (which allows the user to set up multipatches from the four individual synthesizer slots) and the eight morph groups per patch allows the user to control sets of parameters from single internal control sources and via MIDI.

The G2 also boasts four analog audio inputs including an XLR mic input with built-in amplifier to insert external signals and patch them. To use the Modular G2 Patch Editor, users just need to hook up the G2 to a PC via the USB connection. The logical architecture and visual overview, including user-defined coloring of modules and color-coded module groups, make it easy to patch and "lay out" sounds. Thanks to the real-time USB communication, the G2 immediately responds to patching and follows the user's moves. Most of the modules are self-optimizing, meaning that they adapt their bandwidth to the patched signals. The flexible modules also make it easy to alter functionality without needing to replace modules. The Modular G2 Patch Editor comes with more than 150 modules, including oscillators, filters, envelopes, a vocoder, physical modeling, reverb, delay, frequency shifter, pitch tracker, sequencers, LFOs, MIDI modules and more.
