Nord Stage 3 Dual Keyboard Mode (Dual KB) Training/Tutorial

In this Nord Stage 3 Training and Tutorial, we take a look at Dual KB mode on The Nord Stage 3 as well as some traditional MIDI setups from external controller keyboards. There are a ton of options for you to split up your keyboard rig that every Nord Stage 3 owner should be aware of.

We discuss an external keyboard (Axiom 61) driving MIDI through Panel A, Panel B as well as the Dual Keyboard options for individual control of The Nord Stage 3 Organ, Piano, and Synth engines. We also discuss Dual KB controlling the entire panel B along with how that affects Stage 3 splits. Lots of details here you don’t want to miss.

Thank you, sir! I've been wanting to learn more about this function.


In a sense owning a Nord stage 3 you get the quality of two keyboards in one, such a powerful tool if you think about it and what potentials it holds in a performance situation, very cool.
