Thank you for purchasing Red Worship Pianos.
I used to spend a lot of time trying to figure out how to sound best for every Sunday at church. Back then even reading the user manual seemed like a distant language that I couldn’t make out. These products came from the small frustration of having a sound I wanted in my head that back then never made it into the real world. I hope and pray that these patches nail that sound you’ve always wanted and make finding the right sound for the right moment easier.
Red Worship Pianos is a selection for Nords best piano libraries that have been made into 32 patches that will work well in any worship environment. Each patch was carefully made keeping you in mind so you can focus on what really matters; worship.
How to Download
Download each zip from your MultiTracks account. You can use the dropdown menu to select each zip to download.
In order to install Red Worship Pianos, you will need the following:
-a PC or a Mac
-a USB Cable
-a Nord Stage 2(EX) or 3 running the most recent OS.
You will need to download and install the Nord Sound Manager Version 7.54 for your PC or Mac.
Additionally, if you use a PC, you will need the Clavia USB Driver v3.02 installed for windows to be able to communicate with your Stage 2 or 3. You can download it here (http:// www.nordkeyboards.com/software-tools/nord-sound-manager).
A Bundle is a single file that includes all the elements you will need to make the patch fully functional. This includes the same piano sample, synth sample, and all the program settings in one single file. This is great for people who do not want to download additional samples from Nord’s sample library. If you own a Stage 3, this will be the fastest option. Additionally, you can install via 3 bundle files all of Red Essentials for a fast and easy setup. Please before installing check your memory in the sample library's and erase any of the orchestral samples you won't be using.
To install bundles, simply open the Nord Sound Manager.
1. Click on the Bundle Down icon
2. Located the Red Essentials folder and look for the sub folder titled, Bundles.
3. Select the bundle you wish to install and click open
4. When you are prompted, click “Replace the content in Bank” and choose a bank and program number
5. Thats it!
If you already have the right piano or synth sample installed, it will not install it again.
All the patch bundles contain the pianos samples in sizes “M” or “S” to help with space allocation. If you want to upgrade larger size or downgrade to a smaller sample size you can download it from https://www.nordkeyboards.com/sound-libraries/nord-piano-library and within the sample editor you can:
• Chose the Piano tab
• Right click the piano sample you want to change
• Click “substitute” from the dropdown menu
• Chose from your download folder the larger/smaller version you downloaded previously.
About Piano Sample Sizes
Nord uses a simple system to help you decide how much detail you want in the sample. More detail means its going to take up more space on your hardware unit so be mindful of this. “M” usually has the best of both worlds on it and thats why I made all the patches with that starting point but if you want more detail and sample layers, you can go for the L and the XL versions if they are available. In fact, I recommend it! Just make sure you have enough space on your unit. To see how much pace you have you can click the piano tab and in the lower left corner theres a pie chart that indicated how much free space you have.
