Tomas from Nord had it sussed I think, a quiet suite atop the massive Marriott Hotel just outside the Convention Centre, no shouting or excessive noise, and a nice view too.

It gave us the chance to take a closer look at the Nord Drum synthesizer which takes much from the legacy of the DDRUM - fast, tight triggering and combines the synthesis of Nords modelling technology to create a drum synthesizer designed to be gigged.

We hear it will be around the $500 mark, but its yet to be confirmed

'Please ignore the hooker in the background, comes with the VIP suite :)'

I don't know, much as I want to love this because of my good experiences with Nord over the years...it just seems so unimpressive. I really don't think there's enough of a market out there for it. Time will tell I guess

He didn't really show it off very well but it's got some really good sounds as well as immense amount of sensitivity for dynamic playing! Gotta get you hands on one and review yourselves Sonic State! ;)

I think it needs Stereo out as well as panning function and a computer based editor!

Such a let down! The cost of the stereo out might have blown next years VIP suite budget. Nord Drumb the no brains drum brain?

Mono Output? No USB MIDI?

I was expecting Doug McClure to demo it, as it surely must be the drum synth that time forgot.

Great review as always though.
