Clavia Nord Drum Virtual Analog Drum Synthesizer

Whether you're looking to get some classic 808 sounds or wild pitched percussive tones the Nord Drum is one big, red box of synthy joy. Sequence it with the iPad, lay down beats on a MIDI controller or play live with triggers, the Nord Drum is expressive and fun.

Check out our article on the Nord Drum here.

The Nord Drum is designed with the performing musician in mind and its extreme dynamic range and super-fast triggering add to the feeling of playing a real instrument. 4 high-sensitivity inputs and MIDI lets you play the Nord Drum with a wide range of Electronic Drum Pads, Acoustic Drum Triggers and MIDI-pads/Sequencers for easy integration into any existing drum-kit or the starting point for something completely new... Create classic retro-futuristic percussion with analog waveforms or use the harmonically complex waveforms together with different colors of noise for results that both sound and respond stunningly organic.

“Playing the Nord Drum via a set of pads is a riot, and we can enthusiastically report that it unequivocally qualifies as an 'instrument' in every sense of the word, being responsive, dynamic and expressive.…” — Future Music




The Tone Section is where the sound gets its "body". Choose between basic analog waveforms (sine, saw, square) or a number of complex waveforms reminiscent of the harmonics of percussive instruments and drumheads. A low-pass Filter lets you muffle the tone and the Sweep parameter can be applied to make the filter close gradually over time. The Punch adds a short velocity controlled attack to sounds. The length of the tone is controlled with the Decay parameter, and can set to fade out gradually or stop abrubtly (Gate). The Pitch is set in quartertones from (B-1 to D7). Bend can make the tone travel up or down in pitch when triggered and is very dynamically responsive to your playing. Short Bend times can add a nice attack to the Tone.

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).
