MIDI Target Manufacturer(s):
Hello! It’s been a couple years since I’ve shared a layout but I’m very glad I’m back to finally share this delightful layout for the amazing, versatile, and surprisingly deep NORD DRUM 2. I designed it for the Drum 2 but I’m fairly certain it will work on every variation despite not every parameter being 1:1. Feel free to add, subtract, or adjust cc’s if needed to better match the other variations. One caveat is in order to program each voice separately, you have to have a separate midi channel for each one. It’s currently setup for channels 11-16. One advantage to this setting is you can play each voice melodically. Anyhow it’s probably not for everyone’s workflow but I’m using the Synthstrom Deluge to sequence it and it works great!
There’s a section for each half of the Drum: Tone and Noise. Controls for the fx. A little drum pad to play each voice while you tinker. On Bank 2, there’s a little performance area with bigger drums pads, and a mixer section with pan and mute group controls. Only thing I’m not sure of is that bank selector, not sure if that’s working correctly.
