Easy Sound Selection And New Sound Bank

The Nord Drum 3P moves on from its original design, improving every functional aspect, resulting a seamless user experience. The new sound select feature allows you to browse a wide range of premium-quality drum sounds, which can then be assigned to each pad individually. Not happy with a certain snare in a sound bank? You can simply replace the sound with any other from the preset library. This is great feature for customising your kits or creating new kits from original presets. The new sound bank also features a wide selection of new high-quality drum sounds. The bank features 10 categories ranging from Kick, Snare Toms And Hi-Hats to Claps, Effects, Cymbals, Bells and Tuned sounds.

Built-In Effects

The Drum 3P also features a selection of power effects including Distortion, EQ, Repeat and two new Master effects: Reverb and Delay. The Distortion effect features two configurations, one for a crunchy overdriven sound, adding an aggressive edge to the original sound plus a crackling sample-rate reducing Crush effect for a more digital/robotic sounding effect. The Distortion effect allows you to edit your sounds on the fly, dialing in as little or as much as you need, adding a new depth of versatility to your sound bank. There is also a premium-quality parametric EQ with selectable band featured on each channel, allowing you to affect the tone and volume of each frequency band. The Master effects also feature new additions, Reverb and Delay. The Reverb function features 7 different room settings for maximum versatility, allowing you to control the amount of Reverb and the size of the room it emulates. The Delay effects allows you to dial in the adjustable feedback amount, and also features a Tap Tempo-mode for synchronising the delay to your set tempo.

Integrated Multipad

Another new feature of the Drum 3P is the integrated multipad. The multipad is highly responsive, allowing you to play a range of sounds from a single pad dependent on where you strike it. This can be highly useful in live performances where a single sound bank may not hold enough sounds for your needs or for more experimental performances.

Channel Mixer and MIDI Connectivity

The integrated Channel mixer allows you to set the levels for each channel as well as featuring Pan controls for creating a fuller stereo image. Additionally, the module features MIDI in/out, allowing you to use the Nord 3P with your favourite DAW or for connection to devices such as tablets and iPads. There is a separate application available for the iPad called 'Nord Beat' which allows you to sequence the Nord Drum 3P via MIDI.

Sound Creation & The Tone Section

The Nord Drum 3P sounds are all synthesised in real-time, meaning you can edit and play sounds with a unique dynamic response, whether you are using sticks or connected to a sequencer. The Tone Section allows you to create tonal and harmonic sound spectra featuring three synthesis for maximum control and versatility. The Resonant Synthesis Mode produces a wide range of complex spectras, inspired by the more melodic percussive instruments such as marimba, vibraphones, tines, cymbals and more. Subtractive Mode produces the classic Sine, Saw, Square and Pulse waveforms, perfect for creating vintage synth-type drum sounds and effects. Lastly the FM Synthesis mode features 6 different FM algorithms as well as Frequency parameter controls which affects the amount of modulation and Specta controls for the modulation frequency.

It's not a toy. It's a powerful tool. I bought it to expand my minimalistic acoustic kit but I end up playing it whenever I can in my room. It's making practice paradiddles so much fun. CRAZY beats you can create. Sound design is intuitive and quality of sounds is just outstanding. Reverb on this machine is a thing of beauty. Want more? Get an USB Midi interface (around £10) connect it to pc and it makes superb mini e-kit (I got Roland KT-10 for kick). Response on the pads make the proper vst really realistic. Best thing I bought in long time. I owned Roland OCTAPAD SPD30 and it was a boring toy compared to this. HIGHLY recommend.

Great pad response and library of preset sounds. Midi out into daw works greats. Foot pedal only draw back, triggers pad 1 not an additional pad.

Ryan1st Feb 2023

Solidly made piece of kit with superb sound, as one would expect from Nord. I do wish it had more bells and whistles for the price though. Things like separate outs, better delay editing, a better display/screen with more detail, electronic hi-hat input would make it so much nicer to work with. Lastly, while it's a synthesizer with incredible sound design capabilities, the drum sounds can be very realistic sounding except for the hi-hats and I wish it could get closer to a realistic hat sound. All that aside, it's an absolutely fantastic machine and I love it! The points above come down to value for money but ultimately I have no complaints.
