Product Description

Onstage or in the studio, Nord's Lead 4R synthesizer module is absolutely going to rock your world. Whether you're an old-school synth nut or a modern producer looking for fun and creative sounds to play with, you'll find everything you're looking for in the Lead 4R. This bad boy comes packed with four synth voices, each of which gives you two oscillators, plenty of modulation options, and killer effects to play with. Choose from subtractive analog-style synthesis, FM synthesis, or two kinds of wild wavetables - it's all there in the Lead 4R. And when you start digging into the power of the onboard Variation controls, the Nord Lead 4R module will totally blow your mind.

Loaded with four innovative synthesizer voices

Nord positively packed their Lead 4R synthesizer module with a synth-geek's playground of sound-creation tools, and it all starts off with the sound engines. Onboard, you'll find a multi-timbral platform sporting a 2-oscillator virtual subtractive analog synth that features 2x oversampling for incredibly smooth sounds. There's also a wavetable mode that showcases Nord's groundbreaking Formant Wavetable. And when you add to that the Lead 4R's FM synthesis, Hard/Soft sync options, and True Voice Unison (which can give you up to four oscillators per voice), you're ready to create anything from beefy leads and luscious pads to organic sounds you've never even dreamed of.

Full of fun filters and freaky effects

What's a synth without killer filters and effects? Certainly not a Nord! Nord absolutely loaded the Lead 4R with fun and creative tone-shaping options. First off, you've got a super-flexible filter section that lets you choose from 12dB and 24dB lowpass modes, highpass mode, and bandpass mode, as well as two awesome simulation of transistor and diode ladder filter, hooking you up with all of the gritty, dirty, beautifully flawed sound of classic analog technology. There's even dedicated filter overdrive you can use to rough up your sound before the effects section. Speaking of which, all four voices have their own dedicated effects sections, with delay, reverb, bit crushing, and even a freakishly cool Talk effect.

Programmable Variation buttons let you instantly warp your sound

If you've ever wanted to totally tweak your sounds on the fly, but didn't have enough fingers to do the trick, then you're going to have a blast with the Nord Lead 4R's Variation buttons. These buttons let you instantly override nearly any and every parameter on the Lead 4R at once. For instance, you can set up a Variation button to push your LFO speed, crank the modulation setting, and kick up the filter saturation all at once - a perfect recipe for a wicked dubstep drop. Or your can bounce from one Formant wave to another while spiking the bandpass filter and adding delay to create a killer Goa effect. With seven assignable variations per program and clock synchronization, the possibilities are simply endless.
