I'm hearing April. Looks like $1,899 for the 61 and $2,199 for the 76. I am for sure getting at least the 61.

Just got mine today. Sounds great, some nice new amp simulations, better organ and so on. And of course, some MUCH improved acoustic piano sounds. Keyboard feels slightly different from the Nord Electro 2, I like it.

Can't help you as user of Electro 2 rack version, not kb.
Some sounds on 3 are improved, some same.
Looks like very fine and powerful machine.
Electro 3 rack would be awesome.

It's very similar to the NE2, just something (really hard to explain) different. Actually, it could be that most NE2s I played have been old, while the NE3 is brand new... Just feels a bit more... fresh. Or something.

Anybody know if the key-off sound can be adjusted on the NE3? The key-off sound in the Wurlie sounds totally ass in the lower octaves (I've had two Wurlies). I can't remember the Stage Wurlie's key-off sounds sounding this way...

It seems like nobody in the United States is carrying this yet...why is that? Has anybody heard a new date for this to be released in the U.S.
Thanks,
Cam

The difference in the keys is that the ones on the Electro 3 are built to respond like a real B3 in that they trigger the note at the TOP of the keys' throw- in normal synth keyboards (including the Electro 2) the sound isn't triggered until the keys have been pressed all the way. The result is that it feels WAAAY better to play organ on an Electro 3 (as well as the C1).

I just got an Electro 3 in the mail today and am about to test it out. Excited.

well, don't know if anyone cares but just got my electro 3 and must say i'm pretty thrilled by it. first of all, i own a farfisa, a hammond, a rhodes and a wurly and worked with a clavinet and vox organs before and i own a baby grand as well. so, i think i know sounds. i'm picky as hell about sounds in fact and have mostly always been disappointed with any new keyboards, esp any workstation types starting with the k2000.

so, anyway, with that out the way, the electro sounds fantastic! in fact, it's the best clav and b3 emulation i've ever heard. the vox is spot on as well and the farfisa in 95% there, as is the electric pianos. the other pianos are very good but not great EXCEPT the upright, which i think sounds fantastic. pleasant surprise, indeed.

but the thing that takes this keyboard over the top is the mellotron stuff. at least for me. i've literally played every mellotron soft synth and sample library out there and this collection clavia has is the best sounding period. fantastic and inspiring sounds.

the key action is a near-perfect compromise between organ action and piano action. i'm fine with it.

the effects are very good with the leslie sim being top-notch. the ring modulation effect is FAR more useful and interesting that one would think. the reverb sounds very good and the amp sims are, as you may have guessed, very good!

i can honestly say, i've never been so in the bag for a product like i am for the electro 3. would i like more memory and a delay effect? yes, of course, but that is really the only quibbles i have with this keyboard. i'm in love. maybe this honeymoon won't last but i doubt it!hehheh

Agree. Until an Electro 3 rack comes out, I'll keep with the NE2, its a smoker. Take a listen!!
