Piano sounds for Nords and the CP5 have been discussed at length recently on another thread. Maybe you'll find your answers (complete with links to audio samples) here:




If that link didn't work just search for "jazz lines CP5" on this forum. Or heck, scroll down to lower on the first page, as of the time I post this response. :) I know there have been lots of other posts about features in general on both boards you mention ... so if no one chimes in with exactly what you want, search the name of each keyboard and hopefully you'll find what you need there. Welcome to the forum by the way. :) I've only tried the CP5 and liked it well enough -- action and sounds are nice -- but don't own either board so hesitate to comment on specifics.

I thought this was going to be another thread about which of us are the real "pro's," which of us have been convicted of felonies, and which group is better suited to playing the CP5. We've already covered that.
