The Nord Lead 4 is a subtractive synthesizer boasting 20 voice polyphony, with two oscillators per voice. The synthesizer contains a number of powerful performance features that render it especially suitable for a live environment.
The first oscillator on each voice is a wavetable oscillator, while the second oscillator features a noise generator complete with filter cut-off and resonance. The Lead 4’s modulation section is wonderfully flexible, featuring two LFOs per slot, each with a variety of shapes. Even more, each LFO can be synchronized to the master clock and further divided from there. The LFOs can also be triggered manually via dedicated button or the keyboard, and can be conveniently routed to the effects section for mind-blowing modulation potential.
The effects section is also extremely expansive, featuring classics like drive, reverb/delay, and a compressor—but also boasting a bit crusher, a comb filter, and a compressor.
One powerful feature of the Lead 4 is the impulse morph assignments, which allow for the instant alteration of sounds and can be routed to various destinations to influence a variety of desirable sonic deviations.
