Mars Pads: Stage 3 is an incredible collection of ambient pads for the Nord Stage 3 keyboard. Whilst Nord enjoys some stunning factory sounds, it’s long missed out on some of the features Mainstage and Ableton users enjoy. This bundle gives the Nord player 8 different ambient pads designed to work seamlessly within the Nord user interface.
These sounds take use of the sample engine in the Nord synth section. Once loaded into the keyboard with the Nord Sound Manager you’ll find that each ambient pad is mapped from C1-C2, giving you a continuous pad drone in every key. We’ve created programs which take use of ‘Panel B’, allowing ‘Panel A’ to remain open for any other sounds you’d like to use.
Simply load the preset, press the note of the key of your pad drone and then move to Panel A where you can continue to play your Nord as normal.
We’ve built the presets to be as easy and seamless to use as possible, but you can get as creative as you want with the following options we’ve pre-mapped:
- Low pass filter - set fully open, ready to use if you desire
- Delay - set subtly
- Reverb - set subtly
- Effect 1 - autopan, set to bypass but ready to engage
- Effect 2 - chorus, set to bypass but ready to engage
- EQ - set flat, ready to use if you desire
