The Clavia Nord Modular G2 is a small synth that specializes in all sorts of modular synth sounds.  It has a ton of parameters and options and is quite versatile in what it is able to do.  The interface of the keyboard isn't hard to follow, but there is a lot that it can do so it will probably take you some time to get accustomed to everything that this synth has to offer.  It is a polyphonic keyboard, but most of the sounds are in monophonic form, which can be changed depending on the patch.  The keyboard is rather small in size as it ranges just about three octaves.  The synth as 1/4 inch connections for basic things like inputs and outputs as well as for a sustain pedal and also has connections for MIDI.


The configuration of the Clavia Nord Modular G2 synth is pretty user friendly, but more toward those who have experience with synth.  In other words, this isn't a beginner's synth and is more catered toward those with a bit of experience.  Either way, if you play around with the G2 enough, I don't think you'll have a hard time figuring out what everything does.  The manual is probably a good thing to have around if you are unfamiliar with synths and the terminology that comes along with them.


The sounds possible with the Clavia Nord Modular G2 are pretty great overall.  You can definitely get yourself all sorts of synth sounds, no matter if you are looking for a good lead or bass sound.  This pretty much has it all when it comes to synth sounds and is definitely has the parameters and effects to go along with it, making the amount of sounds possible incredibly versatile.  If you are looking for modular synth type sounds in variation and control, the Clavia Nord Modular G2 definitely provides that.


Overall, I think that the Clavia Nord Modular G2 is a great little synth.  I love synths that are small and easily portable and I don't really think for sounds like this that you even need more than three octaves - at least I know that I don't.  The price is definitely reasonable and to me this is the perfect synth to bring to shows as a supplement to another keyboard that has more traditional keyboard sounds like pianos, organs, etc.  All in all, this is a great synth from one of the best modern synth makers.
