Nord Drum 3P Pad / Channel 1 stopped working

Postby kgrooms » 18 Dec 2018, 06:15

Of the 6 channels, channel 1 just stopped working. All of the other channels/pads still work fine. When I hit the pad, the green light for channel 1 does not light up at all. While it does for the other pads.

- No MIDI connected
- Left / Right Inputs are connected to a PA

Any tips for troubleshooting?

Hi kgrooms,

Not sure, what happens if you use another pad layout? (System settings: PL - Pad Layout: PL1-4 represent four different layouts for how the Nord drum 3P Channels 1 to 6 are assigned to the six pads). Is it always channel1 that is affected with all layouts? Or is it one pad that is 'dead', so is a different channel affected with each layout?

halp! Pad stopped working, now triggers other channels

Postby okeribok » 11 Jan 2019, 18:26

One of my pads on my 3P suddenly stopped responding to its own channel (middle top). It is independent of which pad layout I use, the middle top pad seems physically defective. When hitting softly, one other channel reponds, when hitting harder, another channel is added. Is this something I could fix myself, or do I need professional repairs?

Hi okeribok,
That doesn't sound right, I think it's broken and I don't think you can fix this yourself..
Best of luck,
Albert

Any ideas about what happened here? Pad (or channel) 2
On my Nord Drum 3P just stopped working. Pad 2 doesn't work on all of the kits either. I was assuming it could be the sensitivity or threshold, but it's literally doing nothing and not responding to any adjustments.

My Nord Drum 3P is relatively new too, about a month.
Any insight would be much appreciated.

Hi,
It sounds like a hardware problem, you may be the third here, I don't think you can repair it yourself, ask your dealer/distributor how to get it repaired.

Hi there!
Same problem.
I hit the fifth pad and it doesn't work (low sound and trigger channel 2 and 6).
Have you solve the problem? How?

Thanks!
Daniele

Hi,
(I merged two threads about problems with 3p pads)
I think you should contact your dealer/distributor to get it repaired, I don't think you can fix this yourself..

I have the same issue. Middle top pad stopped triggering. My Nord Drum 3P went back to Thomann (the dealer). Fingercross. I love this drumsynth so much. Can't wait to have it back.

I can confirm the same issue and it is definitely something Nord needs to look into. I too love this machine and even after only using it a short time it has become an integral part of my production setup. Minutes before writing this my SECOND Nord Drum 3P has lost the 5th pad. The first time, over 2 months ago it was within the first 2 weeks, this time it was within 1 day! The same pad! It's almost cruel at this point. I sent the first one back and it took me 2 months to find another one in stock somewhere. I've never experienced anything like this with any product I've ordered, and likewise, would never have ordered that product for a third time as I most likely will do. That's a testament to the quality of the sounds on this thing but still, incredibly disappointing. I'm actually going to finish my current production only using 5 pads at this point and then send it back. I really have no other choice at this point as there is nothing that exists with this sound design capability and also playability. I have mine connected to midi in/midi out, both output channels, and a Roland KT-10 kick pedal. FWIW, the channel itself still produces sound when connected to a controller or a sequencer is triggering it.
