The Nord Drum Virtual Analog Drum Synthesizer is 4 channel drum synthesizer with both MIDI and drum trigger inputs for live and studio use. Drum players, producers and composers will find a huge range of retro and modern synth percussion sounds on-board, with impressive connectvitiy for live performance using a wide range of devices (literally DAWs, electronic drum kits, acoustic drum kits, MIDI keyboards, pad triggers and more). For modern music this will certainly open up a wide range of creative possibilities. The 'Virtual Analog' synth engine generates sounds that are full and very much electronic.
Ninety-nine kits provide a wide range of sounds to work with, and you get live editing of attack and decay envelopes as well as other effect parameters. The scope of the sounds covers everything from driving hard dance to more ambient and psychedelic sounds, so it is suitable for a lot of genres. Players wanting acoustic sounds or a sampler should look elsewhere, but for everything electronic, this drum synth is a worthy piece of equipment.
Nord synths have proved extremely popular amongst keyboard players for many years, due to their world-class sounds, impressive versatility, dynamic sensitivity and easy live control of parameters. The Clavia Nord Drum lives up to the same high expectations of the other Nord products, making it easy to get great sounds, helping you to perform at your best and making it easy to incorporate it into your live setup.
Rather than further saturate the already bursting market for acoustic drum samples and vintage drum machine sounds, the Nord Drum offers modern synthesized drum sounds that don't come with a specific set of pads or triggers, the idea is that you use the technology for your own creative puropses and add it to your own unique setup. Most players and producers will be able to introduce this into their current setup, without much alteration (a MIDI cable, or acoutic drum triggers will probably be all you need, and if you own drum pads already, just plug them straight in). If you are an acoustic drummer looking to move into the futuristic realm of live electronic drum sounds, this is an amazing place to start.
