Drum heaven
The Untouchables , 20.11.2020
The Thing is so much more than a electronic drum . Couple with the MPC Live this thing Becomes A Percussive synth similar to the M-brain , M-base , DFAM & Model Cycle ... it's very very powerful . if you get the right sequencer you can automate All parameters . and have 6 Synths.
The reverb is REALLY nice . .
I Don't understand why this is not A Drum machine ... this thing Sound AMAZING . Highly Highly Recommended

A really good instrument!
Alex Krvs, 23.02.2021
I haven't been using it for a long time and I didn't get the time to really explore it, so I will update my review after a while but for now I'll just post a first impression review.

So it's a wonderful instrument and although it's really light it seems very well-built.
The pads are great but a bit loud. I haven't made a recording using it with an acoustic kit, so I don't know if the mics will pick up the noise that the pads are making yet, but unfortunately it seems like they will (if you are not a heavy hitter).
The sound quality is truly amazing, but that is something expected from Nord.
There are a lot of presets, from a variety of acoustic to a more experimental sounds, and they are all fascinating .
You can also connect a sequencer or a drum machine as a sequencer via midi and program it so that you can occupy your hands with other instruments.

The cons I personally found so far is that you can only connect a bass drum pedal and not a second pedal for hi hat, the lack of knobs and the ability to tweak with the sounds live like other synths.

WOW!
Artro Vannus, 13.03.2018
I bought this as I was embarking on a new electronic project where usually I played exclusively acoustic drums. I had no previous experience with any electrical instruments at all.
Was a toss up between this and a Yamaha DTX-12 Multipad, I was extremely close to ordering the Yamaha but switched to the Nord last minute on a friends advice.

All I can say is my mind is blown. This is unlike any other pad out there in the sense that it is a drum synth. Each pad can be modded, each sound bent and twisted like you wouldn't think possible. You can record patterns in midi, quantize them, then play them back and drag them to within an inch of their life.

The preset kits go from somewhat standard to incredibly experimental, I spent the first few weeks coming to terms with them before even thinking of building my own, although I have found that immensely satisfying.

The "only" thing it can't due is capture an "authentic" drum sound, but if you want to play a standard rock beat to folk music you shouldn't be getting this anyway. If you are in anyway into both drums and electronic music, buy the Nord Drum 3p, buy it now! Quick!!!

In love with Drum3P
RicSef, 03.02.2019
Love it for very interesting sound synthesis. It transforms layers of sound differently depending on hit velocity and percussion type.

Pad sensitivity is outstanding. Very dynamic sound can be achieved.
Controlling is easy and quick, sound design is pure fun.

My point on "noisy outputs" problem - it's insignificant. It's audible only when reverb is active and played solo loud. Without reverb it's super clean. (Headphone output is much more noisier than main outputs which has much lower noise floor). It's inaudible for me in the mix and reverb itself is great.

MIDI implementation is superb, no problems in communication with the DAW. Very happy with it, great instrument.
