MESSE13: Nord Drum 2 and Nord Pad Unveiled

Two more new and exciting products from Nord      08/04/13

MESSE13: Nord Drum 2 and Nord Pad Unveiled


The first product is the Nord Drum 2. A standalone Modelling Percussion Synthesizer that combines the playability of real percussion with unique and powerful sound creation possibilities!

The Nord Drum 2 sound engine features Resonance modeling, Subtractive and FM-synthesis in addition to a comprehensive Noise section with High-Pass, Low-pass and Band-Pass filters and offers an extreme level of control over the dynamic response. Each of the channels can be roughened up with a sample rate reducing Crush effect or non-linear distortion.

The 6 generic trigger inputs can be used with both electronic drum pads and acoustic trigger mics. Nord Drum 2 can be played with MIDI-pads or be controlled from a MIDI sequencer. The MIDI out lets the Nord Drum 2 double as a Trigger-to-MIDI inteface.

The second product is the new Nord Pad, a compact, super responsive multi-pad that connects easily to the Nord Drum 2 with a single Ethernet-cable. The Nord Pad is available as an optional accessory.

The Nord Drum 2 and the Nord Pad will be previewed at the Frankfurt Musikmesse April 10-13th.
