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.

Unique!
08.01.2017
First of all, I'm not a drummer, I compose electronic music: please take my words with a pinch of salt.

After years spent programming beats, I began to feel tired and... bored! So I decided to look for a drum synth.

Unfortunately, I soon found out that the list was extremely short. It seems there's just one real modelling drum synth on the market today, and that's the Nord Drum. I'm a happy owner of a Nord Stage 2, so the news wasn't that disappointing: I decided to buy it right


So, here's what I noticed.


Pros:

As for the others 'handmade in Sweden' products by Clavia, the Nord Drum is a solid piece of gear. It's well assembled, it's small, but relatively heavy. You know from the beginning that you're not in front of a toy.

The control panel is very straightforward. The modelling process is literally written on the panel, right in front of your eyes. Also, the knobs feel great.

Although the sounds you can get from it are numberless, creating them is not time-consuming and it's easy.

The pads are pretty solid and feel very good when beaten.


Cons:

There are not samples and there can't be. Don't expect to find a selection of real drum kits (as in the Kork wavedrum): it's just a modelling drum synth. I have to say that it would be great if there were some. If you buy a Nord Stage, you're getting a synth and a huge number of sampled instruments. I think they could have done something similar and create a complete electronic drum pad.


In the end, I highly recommend this product if you're looking for a unique drum synth that allows you to create a huge selection of electronic drum kits. It's great for electronic music, but I also think it would be perfect as a companion for an acoustic kit!
