Couldn’t find a thread on this so thought I’d start one.
Mine arrived yesterday. It’s rather good. Haven’t done much with the internal lo-fi sound generator yet because I really wanted to hook it up to my Nord Drum. Apart from needing to remap the note allocation it feels like they will be a perfect pair.
Little test using TouchOsc as a quick n dirty mute switch control for the ND2. You can get a similar effect using the Drop parameter on DrumKid which biases the voice selection but this is more deterministic. Useful way to thin things out while keeping the range of pattern variation.
It’s certainly way more interesting and varied than the more common Euclidian based approaches. And when you do find a groove that you like, even without further tweaking it still continues to “improvise” around the core pattern. It’s pretty much my ideal for this kind of thing.
