Tomas from Nord had it sussed I think, a quiet suite atop the massive Marriott Hotel just outside the Convention Centre, no shouting or excessive noise, and a nice view too.
It gave us the chance to take a closer look at the Nord Drum synthesizer which takes much from the legacy of the DDRUM – fast, tight triggering and combines the synthesis of Nords modelling technology to create a drum synthesizer designed to be gigged.
The Nord Drum features four voices, each with three synth elements (click, noise & tone) that are designed especially drum synthesis. The four jacks on the back let you hook up standard drum pads. You can also control the Nord Drum via MIDI.
Pricing and availability for the Nord Drum are to be announced.
