the nord seems to default at midi mode 3 and i am using it to control a monophonic synthesizer via midi, so i need to change the midi mode but it doesn't mention how in the manual, i have been searching the net for hours and any help would be greatly appreciated

Well, maybe I can help, but what do you mean by Midi Mode?
Are there different 'modes'?

found at: http://www.sweetwater.com/expert-center/glossary/t--MIDIMode wrote:
MIDI Mode
One of several ways in which a device can respond to incoming MIDI information. There are two parts to each mode, one defining whether it is monophonic or polyphonic, and the other determining if it is multitimbral or not. Four modes are included in the MIDI spec, and two others, Multi Mode and Mono Mode (for MIDI guitar) were developed later.


Omni On/Poly - Device responds to MIDI data regardless of channel, and is polyphonic. (See WFTD "Polyphonic")
Omni On/Mono - Device responds to MIDI data regardless of channel, and is monophonic. This mode is rarely, if ever, used.
Omni Off/Poly - Device responds to MIDI data only on one particular channel, and is polyphonic. This is the normal mode for most keyboards that are not functioning multitimbrally.
Omni Off/Mono - Device responds to MIDI data only on one particular channel, and is monophonic.

Multi Mode - Used by many devices for multitimbral operation. An expanded version of Mode 3, Multi Mode allows the device to respond to several independent MIDI channels at once, with each being polyphonic. (See also WFTD "Multitimbral")

Mono Mode - Used for MIDI guitar applications, Mono Mode is an expanded version of Mode 4, allowing for six Omni Off/Monophonic channels to be used at once, one for each string of the controller. This allows for better tracking, independent pitch bend per channel, and a separate sound or patch assignment per channel.


This is what I found, but do you mean this?

basically, i'm using the nord to control an elektron sidstation which is monophonic and i want to be able to play it like a true monosynth in the sense that i can leave a note held down with my left hand and when i'm tapping notes with my right each time i lift my right hand up it bounces back to the held note, like a moog does or even the nord in mono mode, i figured its a midi setting because right now its set to poly so when i push keys on the key board i'm triggering the midi on in each note but when i lift one hand it doesn't resend the midi on to the note that is held down because its poly. playing octaves with one hand is very difficult to do when its set to poly like it is, you have to be very precise
someone said something about midi unnison or something, maybe im asking the wrong question. i am fairly new with this
thanks again

The MIDI implementation chart on page 113 of the manual is quite clear - mode 3 only. Sorry to disappoint you.

The list I found is about the mode of the receiving instrument, in your case the SidStation. Anyway, the Lead doesn't have any possibilities to set the mode.

Perhaps there is a work around, using the Arpegiator. Set this in ArpOut Goto [Shift+ProgCtrl > 2xProgCtrl = Aoff] Set using the curser the value to Aon. Press Arp in LFO2 and choose a mode, like Up&Down. Then us the Hold function [Shift+Arp] and set the Rate to just one octave.
The Arpegiator sends NoteOn and NoteOff, so it does what you want to hear, maybe not as flexible, but it works in a way.

Clavia ignores a lot of the basic midi implementations taken for granted on other products. For example you can't change the midi modes and the Nord does not transmit ALL data on a single channel as should. See my earlier posts.
