Clavia announces Nord Lead A1R that has identical features with the A1 model, but loses the keyboard.
This is the new Nord Lead A1 analogue modelling synthesizer – a stunning sounding synthesizer that combines our next-generation analogue modelling with a simplified yet hugely powerful front panel interface. Producing stand-out sounds for live or for the studio, the Lead A1 is ideal for all musical genres.
Thanks to its carefully thought-out user interface, the Lead A1 encourages experimentation, allows for far speedier programming than would otherwise be possible, and ultimately delivers sensational sonic results.
The Nord A1R will ship in June priced at £1049.
