The Drum series from Nord takes the company back to it's roots, as they were one of the first companies to develop an electronic drum kit in the 80's. Things have come a long way since then and the Drum 2 represents the very latest and greatest in drum synthesis and performance features.
Play as part of an electronic drum kit, touch screen drum machine on iPad or as a synthesiser module via MIDI. The Nord Drum 2 also converts trigger inputs to MIDI data automatically.

The 6 generic trigger inputs can be used with both electronic drum pads and acoustic trigger mics. Nord Drum 2 can be played with MIDI-pads or be controlled from a MIDI sequencer. The MIDI out lets the Nord Drum 2 double as a Trigger-to-MIDI inteface.
