Exploring the Synthy Side of the Nord Drum 2 - the Scale Preset mode

Published on Feb 28, 2020 NONsynth

"I've got my hands on another Nord Drum 2 and I now want to make a deeper exploration of its synthyness. In this test vid I use the Midibro in dispatcher mode to send single channel midi notes to the multiple channels of the ND2, turning it into a polysynth. I used the Edit Group settings to link all six channels and edit them as one.

What are you seeing in this vid? Well, digging through the manual led me to this (wtf) description of the "Scl Pre" mode:

"Use the Scl Pre feature with an Edit Group
to quickly set up different pitch relationships
between pads.

The pitches will begin at the set pitch on the
lowest numbered channel in the Edit Group
and increase with a factor determined by the
selected scale on the selected channels.

If a Scale has been used to set a pitch
relationship, you can change the pitch of one
channel without breaking the pitch relationship.
This will move all the other pitches until
one of the pitches reaches the maximum, or
minimum pitch (“0” or “127.5”)."

And so begins my experimentation."
