My experience is this:
When I play my K-2500/76 organsounds I prefer using the keys of my old
Roland A-50 controller.
They respond better to organplaying. Actually making especially in
glissando's sound credible.
The keys of the NordStage has a function "fast response" for the organpart.
(Probably only using the first contact as trigger)
This makes the NordStage very good with organ too imho.
(Being the former owner of a Hammond RT3)
I think some of the replies here refer to the Nord Electro.
The NordStage is not just an Electro with more keys.
It's a different soundset and a VERY set of eq, amp and compressor.
The e-pianos has more details (key-off sound etc.) and the acoustic
a totally different league.
The reverb in the NordStage doesn't (off course) come anywhere near the
The organ has one major advantage in the full polyphony.
The drawbars and all the relevant buttons for percussin etc. are always
right there and named.
Both Kurzweil and NordStage organs sound great.
