Quick Overview

The Ocean Beach Digital DB-1 Drawbar Controller is the only product of its kind, designed from the ground up specifically to complement Nord keyboards. It already knows how to send the correct drawbar commands for every Nord, so it’s very simple to set up and configure. The DB-1 is also MIDI-bus powered, so no external power supply is required.

The Ocean Beach Digital DB-1 Drawbar Controller is an innovative MIDI accessory that was designed for the Nord from the ground up. We used a mid 1950s Hammond B-3 drawbar handle as the model for our custom knob and preserved the B-3s spacing and travel distance. The DB-1 sends native Nord drawbar commands. It's very easy to configure and no external power supply is necessary. There's even an extra set of MIDI jacks and a built-in MIDI merger, so you can still connect to the rest of your gear.


“Greatly enhances the tactile experience of playing organ on your Nord.” -- Jon Regen, Keyboard Magazine, October 2011

“I love my DB-1. I can’t play without it, the keyboard feels incomplete. You’ve spoiled me.” - Max, Chicago IL

“I really like my Electro 2 but with the DB-1 I fell in love with it all over again.” - Brian, Piqua OH

“The DB-1 was love at first sight. Plugged it right into my Electro’s MIDI ports and it just worked. No muss, no fuss” - Glenn, Chula Vista CA
