Raising the bar for stage pianos, the luxurious Nord Grand 2 88-note Kawai Hammer Action with Ivory Touch AMS-NGRAND2 improves on its predecessor by adding the latest-generation premium Responsive Hammer keybed from Kawai, a new user interface, more instrument layers, more memory, and more effects, providing keyboardists worldwide with a genuinely unique experience for live gigs onstage or in the studio. Thanks to its three sensors per key, the 88-key Kawai keybed offers an unprecedented level of control across the entire dynamic range to deliver the authentic feel of an acoustic grand piano. The two independent piano layers and two sample synths allow for complex sound combinations and greater flexibility for performance and sound creation.

Dedicated LED faders for each layer and knobs and buttons for all essential functions allow for quick and easy adjustments required in a live performance. The Effects section has been greatly expanded, with new Spring, Booth, and Cathedral reverbs, a new Spin effect, and an improved delay. The Grand 2 includes the Nord Triple Pedal 2.


The well-balanced Kawai Responsive Hammer keybed features keys with triple sensors for accurate tracking of hammer movement.

With dedicated LED faders for each layer, tasks such as Creating Layers and Splits, adding effects or transposing the instrument can be performed instantly.

The dual Piano and Synth engines can be combined in a layer or split across the keyboard. Each layer has a dedicated effects section. The Nord Grand 2 has 7 Split Points indicated with LED lights and the Split Point Crossfades offer smooth transitions between two split zones. Choose from 3 different crossfade widths.

Piano Section

The Grand 2 comes with an extensive 2GB collection of Grands, Uprights, and Electric Pianos from Nord's exclusive Nord Piano Library, combined with new features such as Dynamic Compression and Unison.

Nord's state-of-the-art sampling technique captures the extraordinary nuances and real character of the source instruments. The proprietary Advanced String Resonance and Dynamic Pedal Noise features deliver stunning realism and an unsurpassed level of expressiveness.

Sample Synth Section

Two independent Sample Synths with 1GB expanded memory, 40+ voice polyphony, and a large variety of new and updated sounds ranging from acoustic wind, brass, strings, basses, and guitars to classic analog leads and basses. Also included is a selection of samples from the Symphobia and Swing libraries by ProjectSAM.

The Sample Synth section offers two fully featured and independent Layers and is equipped with intuitive controls for attack, decay/release, and dynamic velocity response. The Soft and Bright settings provide a quick way of shaping the tone of the sound.

Unison creatively blends several sample voices for rich ensemble-like sounds, Tru-Vibrato accurately models the unique vibrato characteristics of a wide variety of wind, brass and string instruments, and round-robin allows natural-sounding fast repetitions. Vibrato is controlled by button, pedal, or the preset delay setting. The Sample Synth section features Mono and Legato modes with adjustable Glide rate.

Effect Section

The Nord Grand 2 has a powerful new Effect section per Layer. The extensive range of Effects includes brand-new types of Reverb, Delay, Amps, and Modulation effects.
