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!!!

The Best Drum Synth
ME MEME, 30.04.2020
In just one word... Brutal!
Pros: All
Cons: Lack of support in the Nord Web about drivers, MIDI functionality and interaction with different DAW via MIDI
Not too much info about how it works as a MIDI Controller on the WEB, but is something about NORD, in general, more than about this specific device

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.

Was expecting a bit more
Natalia B., 11.04.2018
Quality is Noord so lets face it, the quality is very good. The sound is amazing and even if its so solid, its not hard or heavy to carry. Easily fitted in a laptop kind of bag and carried to one of your gigs. Pads could be more sensitive but I guess they would be once i have used them enough. 100% recommended if you want to add a bit of colour and joy to your acts and productions!
