Yep, that video does not make a lot of sense.
The sound reminds me of the orginal Wave which was also harsh sounding.
But this whole video makes you cry… imagine you are the creator of this synth and the marketing department comes up with this…
I have a Nordlead A1 , I was hoping for a Nordlead A2.
Nordwave 2 spec. are interesting. But I am curious how it ‘really’ sounds, because this demo does not show really show off. I do not get Nord regarding their introductions videos, not that I am a fan of the Korg introduction video of the Wave State - which is over the top.
That said, the Wave State caught my eyes as well; price wise a better option and while only based on (factory) samples and waveforms but overall more compact and I expect the fx on the Korg sound better as well. The Korg offers more modulation and filter options.
For the price of the Nord Wave 2, you could at least own a Wave State + Miniloque XD module.
