Love the seamless transition between programs which is so handy for live work.
It is my main keyboard in home set.
The only thing I would change is the quality of the knobs as those on my stage 2 feel more solid and even after years of road work they are still as solid as day 1. I sure there is a reason for this but its a only a little thing but they felt the same on the stage 3
I would recommend the Nord Stage 3 as it is a fabulous hands on stage piano...
Not much else comes close to having all the bases covered in my opinion
