Clavia’s virtual electromechanical range. From the outset, acoustic pianos were allowed to mingle with their electronic brethren, so further conceptual anomalies are to be expected. In the Electro 3, modelled organs and velocity‑layered pianos are joined by strings, flutes, choirs and other ’real instrument’ samples harvested from an extensive and growing on‑line library. In common with the Nord Wave, any sample can be ousted and replaced, ensuring that the Electro 3 ticks as many boxes as possible.
