For years I have advised people who are getting into synthesis to download the G2 demo software and the manual as a tool for everything from explorin the 'Nord sound' to studying synthesis basics to making weird sounds on a budget.

Today I was about to do the same thing, but when I went to Clavia.se and noticed the page had had a visual makeover, but it seems the demo is no longer available! The only link I could find was an older version for compatibility with legacy MacOS systems.

http://www.nordkeyboards.com/downloads/legacy/nord-modular-g2

Did it just move on the website, or have they really stopped offering it? If so, should we host a copy of the software here? I am not sure whether that would be legal Embarassed ...but on the other hand, it's terrible that people curious about the G2 have no way to experiment with the sound engine.

Heh, yeah its gone .. yet it is not gone : http://www.clavia.se/products/nordmodular/demo.htm

I clicked the link from the about box of the demo to find that page ...

Anyways .. if someone would ask Clavia and they would say yes we could host it .. it is protected by copyright after all.

Well that's good, I understand they don't want to spend any support/bandwidth resources but it would be a tragedy if they withdrew it.

Unless they're thinking about a G3 to cash in on the eurorack craze, but I rather doubt it Twisted Evil

I have a written permission from Clavia to use the NMG2Demo in my eBooks:
