The Nord Drum is a revolutionary 4-channel drum synthesizer with an vast sonic palette and astounding level of playability that's guaranteed to change your perception of what's possible with synthetic, sample-free percussion. The Nord Drum is designed with the performing musician in mind and its extreme dynamic range and super-fast triggering add to the feeling of playing a real instrument. 4 high-sensitivity inputs and MIDI let you play the Nord Drum with a wide range of Electronic Drum Pads, Acoustic Drum Triggers, and MIDI-pads/Sequencers for easy integration into any existing drum-kit or the starting point for something completely new. Create classic retro-futuristic percussion with analog waveforms or use the harmonically complex waveforms together with different colors of noise for results that both sound and respond stunningly organic. The Tone Section is where the sound gets its "body." Choose between basic analog waveforms or a number of complex waveforms reminiscent of the harmonics of percussive instruments and drumheads. A low-pass Filter lets you muffle the tone and the Sweep parameter can be applied to make the filter close gradually over time. The Punch adds a short velocity controlled attack to sounds. The length of the tone is controlled with the Decay parameter, and can set to fade out gradually or stop abruptly (Gate). The Pitch is set in quartertones from (B-1 to D7). Bend can make the tone travel up or down in pitch when triggered and is very dynamically responsive to your playing. Short Bend times can add a nice attack to the Tone. The Noise-section lets you add texture to your sound and can produce a wide spectrum of noise, ranging from grainy rumble to silky white noise - adjusted with the Color parameter. The Click-section, with 27 click types lets you add attack to the sound. The flexibility of having both Trigger and MIDI-inputs lets you use the Nord Drum in numerous ways, and you can also mix Pads, Triggers and MIDI at the same time.
