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!!!

Great Synth!
Alwin Z., 25.04.2021
I was looking for a drum machine and a drum pad to practice on. The Nord Drum ticked all the boxes for me, being a great drum machine sequenced through the nord beat app on ipad and also really fun to play on with drum sticks.

With this machine you can create all kinds of percussive and synth sounds that are really unique and the fact that those are dynamically controlled takes it to another level.

It is easy to use, although it takes some time to get used to how it works, but once you figure it out you can change parameters pretty fast. The only drawback for me is the fact that it doesn't have a hi hat controller input. It would have made it a perfect kit to practice on.

All in all, given the sounds it can produce and the way you interact with it makes it an amazing machine. The build quality is also really good and the size makes it portable.

I highly recommend the Nord Drum to everyone who wants an alternative to playing a synth with a keyboard (you can also do that with midi) and to programming drums, as you can also use it as a midi controller with a midi interface.

Drum heaven
The Untouchables , 20.11.2020
The Thing is so much more than a electronic drum . Couple with the MPC Live this thing Becomes A Percussive synth similar to the M-brain , M-base , DFAM & Model Cycle ... it's very very powerful . if you get the right sequencer you can automate All parameters . and have 6 Synths.
The reverb is REALLY nice . .
I Don't understand why this is not A Drum machine ... this thing Sound AMAZING . Highly Highly Recommended

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.
