DB-1 Drawbar Controller

"Greatly enhances the tactile experience of playing organ on your Nord."

-- Jon Regen, Keyboard Magazine, October 2011

It's a very simple device - take it out of the box, set the selector switches, and it will add real, sliding drawbars to any of the following Nord keyboards:

It's also a very powerful device. Using a PC or Mac, it can be configured to add drawbars to a long and expanding list of keyboards and virtual instruments:

DB-1 Configurator

Setting up the DB-1 for Nord keyboards has always been a snap. You just set the DB-1's selector switches and off you go - no computer necessary.

But by using your Mac or PC, you can have complete control over the DB-1 and configure it lots of different ways. You can program each of the DB-1's drawbars to send any MIDI CC on any MIDI Channel, so you can use it with most tonewheel organs, with any virtual (software) tonewheel instrument, or even as a generic control surface for your DAW.

The Configurator is free.

Drawbar Knobs

Dress up the faders on your your Korg Kronos, Kurzweil PC3, or other keyboard with a set of our classy drawbar knobs. This knob was custom-made by Ocean Beach Digital, inspired by the knobs on an early 1950s Hammond console organ, and perfectly color-matched. Why settle for a set of drab, rectangular black fader knobs, when you could be playing drawbars that look just like the ones on a real B-3? Comes as a set of nine in traditional colors (two brown, three black, four white).

Stage Plate 73

This accessory was designed specifically for the 73-key Stage 2 Compact and provides a sturdy shelf to the left of the mod wheel and pitch stick for your DB-1. The Stage Plate 73 attaches securely to the Nord by using existing screw holes. The kit come with thumb screws which replace two of the Stage's Philips head screws. When you get to your gig, spin off the thumb screws, attach the plate, and put the screws back on. Takes about ten seconds. Check out the instruction sheet to see just how easy.
