Lord Wan's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A must have"

Clavia Nord Drum 2
I use it for 6 weeks. I have no judgment about its function drumkit module (using triggers or North pad) because I do not use that drumkit driven synth via MIDI.

I tried many models and they had all their fault.
- Alesis SR18, sonic palette rather limited and cumbersome interface
- Vermona DRM1, No Memory
- Novation Drumstation, sounds very typical
- Boss DR202, drafts sounds
- Roland SPD-20, samples too "boats"

The positive points: Sons Construction, Implementation noon and Product Support

ND2 with the sound palette is impressive! With only 32 parameters for its very diverse and very convincing results were obtained, however; sounds "electro" or "tribal".
In addition, as the sounds are synthesized and furs as one can obtain wide variations (velocity, brightness, time of release) over a single tone. In addition to all the parameters are editable in real time by CC.
For memories, each patch set 6 sounds. There are 8 banks of 50 patch!

Extremely compact casing (very flat and slightly inclined accounting for about half of a computer keyboard).
Solid construction and metal buttons in good order. This kind of stuff should last for decades!

Midi implementation:
Everything is there, you can:
- Backup / restore sound banks by Sysex (utility provided by Clavia).
- Control all the parameters by CC
- Trigger sounds in drumkit mode (one distinct sound per note C4, D4, E4, F4, G4, A4 on the Global Channel 10)
or in multi-timbral synth mode (monaural sound by 1 midi channel 1-6 but Mapé over the entire keyboard)
So you can have a set 4 drum sounds, one bass sound, one of his solo!
- Icing on the cake (o) changing settings sends CC, changing patch sends "Program change".

Only drawback, Clavia refuses to publish the protocol Sysex so we will not see any time soon of third party publishers ... Unless your servant completes its exploration of reverse engineering and publishes a template for Lemur on iPad ...;)

Product support:
Clavia provided regular product upgrades to not only correct defects but also bring new features (new filters, new wave models, etc ...). The firmware is version 3.0.
The Clavia support is very responsive and told me a few days (when I wanted to know the sysex implementation).

Finally I tried the free app North IPad Beat on there and it rocks!

In conclusion, this small jewelry can be used in many different situations (for electro drummer, percussionist, home studio). I finally found the sound I was looking for years ... go! I go back. ;)

Clavia Nord Drum 2
Here is the little trick I waited a long time, a synth "drum".

With a Cirklon, which is the copy of the step sequencer to the TR 808/909 (real killing this thing), I was looking for a small expander drum, but with a good MIDI and implementation multitimbral all easy programming and use.

some flaws all the same: no internal power supply, a somewhat low headphone output and only 2 separate outputs ... no USB either.

Yet it is simple, this small northern drum is FINALLY what I was looking for years, approx 400 slot Kits 6 sounds, you can play on the pitch, filter the noise, the gate, the delay for each share real-time ... in short, the ideal within my use

lightweight, simple interface, real-time controls, make a small weapon of war with a good sequencer.

disadvantage: 2 separate outputs, the output level is not really too short exceptional. I have much preferred to have 6 separate outputs rather than having CV inputs, but at the same time the choice is quite logical from clavia

A very good machine, little known, really hand, but expensive ... whatever for 6 x 1 mono, it is not bad at all.

the question is: in February 2014 the new arrival elektron drum analog and aira Roland ... it will look really closely the price of this small clavia, as it may fall into nine.

this small northern drum, Verily gives me a good impression, yet spent on TR, R8, MPC and some other stuff that make drums, drum north is an excellent compromise between the quality of its offer, the small size, and price.

I confess that my MR Rack with card dance, still above all that exists (personal opinion) and my S6000 sampler keeps a special little place to complete some drums sounds useful but really it north drum 2 is damn.

Mr Clavia: some real time for each lane pots, a small step integrated sequencer and separate hop and outputs, the card provided.

Clavia Nord Drum 2
North 2 is a drum expander dedicated to the sounds of box electronic rhythms can be played with the controller of the brand "north pad" on one single ethernet cable or with electronic modules up to 6 trig drumkit or directly by midi keyboard altogether.

Synthesis North drum can cover almost all the sounds of drum machine from their creations with a very dynamic and modern sound that can even emulate fairly close feel of a true acoustic sound in an electronic record.

We can easily find the colors of a TR-808909 etc..

In the area dedicated to percussion sounds, this is a revolutionary product very simple in its approach through a particularly efficient ergonomics, yet contained in a tiny surface.

Northern drum 2 has no samples has everything from modeling.

I find very good value for money compared to the quality of the product and its versatility.

The construction is all metal rear outputs are very secure, it's solid yet very lightweight.

I would later provide more detail on this new modules rhythmic sounds, but I'm already convinced of its usefulness in a home studio or live again clavia innovates and brings real comfort for musicians electronic music as well as drummers in need of new sounds.
