The drum set in briefcase format

The Millenium Nonapad is a multipad that combines nine playing surfaces in a compact housing and contains more than 600 internal sounds. Thanks to the MIDI and USB connections, external sound sources can be triggered as well. You can also connect up to four additional pads, allowing the Nonapad to be configured like a traditional drum kit. In addition to the internal sounds, 512 MB are available for user sounds such as loops or samples, which can be combined with the internal sounds at will. A recording function allows you to quickly create sequences that can be played back as loops. An equaliser, a limiter, and a reverb effect are available for sound editing.

Huge selection of sounds

Using an optionally available mounting and a multi-clamp, it is possible to attach the Nonapad to any tripod. Thanks to its rubber feet, it can also be placed on a tabletop to prevent it from slipping if you want to use it at home. The 608 internal sounds and the 30 preset drum kits have the right sound for everyone. And if you prefer using your own sounds, you can save them to the internal memory of the Nonapad via a USB stick. The blue-illuminated LCD screen enables convenient editing, and nine lights assigned to the playing surfaces indicate the activity of the respective trigger. Variable dynamic curves allow you to adjust the response behaviour of the pads to your individual playing style.

Plenty of space for user sounds

The Nonapad offers every drummer the opportunity to expand their sonic palette with countless other sounds, be they electronic sounds, loops, backing tracks, or their own recorded samples. For example, you can easily incorporate special sounds from studio recordings into your live performance. The Nonapad is also ideal for recording at home: Thanks to the quantisation function, drum tracks can also be recorded even if you’re not a drummer, and the USB and MIDI connections ensure perfect integration into music production on a computer. And if you’re short of a drummer in the rehearsal room, you can simply jam along to one of the 17 preset drum tracks.

About Millenium

Millenium is one of Thomann’s in-house brands and has been an integral part of the store’s range since 1995. More than 800 products – from drums and percussion through to accessories such as microphone stands, racks, and recording workstations – bear the Millenium label. These products are made by renowned companies who also manufacture products for other well-known brands. Since they are imported directly from the factory without any further distributors or sales companies, they can be sold at particularly attractive prices. Incidentally, one in every four Thomann customers has already purchased at least one Millenium product.

Strong performance on stage

Nowadays, the boundaries between acoustic and electronic elements in music are becoming increasingly blurred, so it is very helpful if you, as a drummer, have an appropriate arsenal of sounds at your disposal. While in the past you had to drag several devices onto the stage, today there are all-rounders like the Millenium Nonapad, which is not only a huge sound database, but for example also plays loops or special sounds on stage that are produced in the studio and are a must-have in a live environment. Thanks to the connections for up to four external pads, these sounds can even be distributed anywhere within the drum set so that they can be conveniently and seamlessly incorporated into the performance.

Doesn’t work with M1 MacBook Air via MIDI
honzakalnik 26.06.2022
This product is generally very good. I like how the pads feel and the internal sounds are not half bad. You basically get what you pay for. But one big drawback was that my unit didn’t communicate with my M1 MacBook Air over MIDI protocol, which was crucial for me since I wanted to use this drumpad mainly to trigger Logic’s internal sounds. I was in contact with the support and they tried to help me as much as they could but unfortunately we were not able to figure this out. I can’t have such unreliable piece of equipment at our gigs so I applied for money back return.

Solid quality, great looks and great musical abilities

I bought the Millenium NonoPad along with other items through Thomann for the first time and am greatly impressed by the Product quality, the speed and slick shipping response from Germany to the UK - delighted!!

I'll be using the NonoPad for small intimate accoustic accompanied gigs for Charity as well as coupling it to my Roland TD17KVX kit for additional effects.

Die Pads fühlen sich gut an, sind auch mit den Händen spielbar, die Triggereingänge haben verschiedene Voreinstellungen, die Bedienung mit den Tasten und dem endlos-Knob funktioniert gut. Es sind reichlich integrierte Sounds vorhanden, die von der Qualität her ok sind.

Allerdings habe ich bei diesem Pad wieder ein Problem, dass ich auch schon beim "Alesis Samplepad" hatte, ich nenne es "Crossmuste": Beim genau gleichzeitigen anschlagen zweier benachbarter Pads, wird eines der beiden oft nicht getriggert, dass heißt es ist nur einer der Sounds zu hören. Vor allem beim gleichzeitigen schlagen der "Rim Pads" und dem jeweiligen darunter viel mir das auf. Ich vermute, dass es eine Schaltung im Pad gibt, die "Crosstalk" verhindern soll, leider lassen sich dafür aber keine Parameter festlegen. Wenn Crosstalk auftritt, kann man die Sensitivität verringern, das ist also kein Problem.

Deshalb wird das Pad wohl leider zurück gehen und ich versuche es doch wieder bei Roland, da ich das Pad ohne Fußtrigger alleine nutze und nicht z.B. als Ergänzung zu einem akustischen Drumset, in diesem Fall wäre das Problem wohl wesentlich weniger auffällig.

Regular en general.
Jose Maria S. 14.03.2022
Lo he probado durande 3 dias y en general bien. Bastante memoria para cargar samples, 512 mg. Lo que no me ha gustado es el volumen de salida que dan los auriculares, para mi le falta por lo menos 5 decibelios mas. Tambien no puedes separar el click del metronomo de los auriculares de la salida principal, osea que salga solo por los auriculares y no por la salida principal que iria a una mesa. Sonidos decentes. El wave manager (Editor de sonidos para Pc y Mac, y el ultimo firmware no viene en la descripcion del producto, solo viene el manual y un video. Por lo demas bien para el precio que vale.
