Nord Sound Manager 6
With the new Nord Sound Manager 6 they introduce a new concept called Dependencies that keeps track of which pianos and samples that are in use by programs. This lets you move your sounds around freely without it affecting the programs and will also tell you what programs that will be affected when deleting sounds and here's a bit more about the features:
Info pane - The new Info pane brings up additional information about the program/sound dependencies. When browsing the programs, the associated pianos and samples are shown and if browsing pianos or samples, you will see a list of programs that use these sounds.
Replace - Replace allows you to replace a selected piano or a sample in your instrument and make sure that your existing programs will use the new sound instead.
Relink - The Relink feature is used if you want one or several selected programs to use another piano or sample instead of the current. The Relink features can also be very useful if a piano or sample is absent in the Nord, to repair programs that are missing a component.
Bundles - The new Bundle-feature lets you pack together everything needed for one or more sounds (program, samples, pianos) to a single file on your computer. Very nice for backing up your stuff selectively or for sharing sounds you've created with others. When transferring a bundle back to your Nord instrument the Nord Sound Manager will only transfer the pianos and samples that aren't already present.
Export Sound Lists - You can now create detailed lists in HTML-format of the contents of your instrument, including the names, locations and sizes of pianos and samples and program dependencies.
* Features available only on the Nord Stage 2 (OS v1.6X), Nord Piano 2 (OS v1.X) and Nord Electro 4D (OS v1.0x). Nord Stage 2 programs created with earlier OS versions need to be updated in order to use the new features.
