Korg NTS-1 Nu:Tekt Digital DIY Synth Kit

The Korg Nu:Tekt NTS-1 is a unique, flexible, and easy DIY synthesizer kit that you can easily assemble yourself, without any soldering (tool included!). The NTS-1 packs a powerful synth and multi-effects engine into a compact form factor that you can carry and connect anywhere. Its DIY nature means it's also very customizable. Explore the possibilities! NTS-1 is also completely compatible with the logue-SDK, so it is possible to run any custom oscillator and effect content available for minilogue xd and prologue, or, create your own.

NTS-1 - Introduction Movie:


Equipped with AUDIO IN, SYNC IN, SYNC OUT and MIDI IN connectors, the NTS-1 can easily be used in conjunction with other hardware and software. You can control it using external MIDI controllers and sequencers, use it to modify any audio signal with its powerful digital effects, or even sync it to other hardware and jam along! Its also USB micro-B powered so you can plug it directly to a portable battery and take it anywhere with you! You can also connect to your computer's USB port or directly to the power supply using a standard USB power plug.

NTS-1 - Unboxing and Assembly Tutorial:


The Nu:Tekt NTS-1 features a digital oscillator inspired by the MULTI engine as found on the acclaimed prologue and minilogue xd, along with an extremely capable arpeggiator including multiple ranges, scales, and modes, plus dedicated spatial, modulation, and delay sections, each with multiple settings to explore.

With its monophonic digital oscillator, one multimode filter, on EG, three LFOs, three stereo effect processors, and full arpeggiator, the NTS-1 is a very powerful, flexible, fun-to-explore synth. The main oscillator can produce Sawtooth, Triangle, Square and VPM waveforms, and can load custom oscillators created from Korg's logue SDK, which means its compatible with content created for prologue and minilogue xd. These waveforms can be easily re-shaped and adjusted just by simply turning a couple of knobs. A wide selection of filters (Low pass 2/4-pole, High pass 2/4-pole, Band pass 2/4-pole and OPEN mode, all with resonance) give you serious control over the overall tone of the oscillator.

The three onboard effects units are inspired by those on Korg's minilogue xd, which itself took onboard effects to a whole new level. Numerous reverbs, modulation effects, and delays are available to blend and edit at will, to really finish out your sound creations.

NTS-1 also offers a fun and practical arpeggiator with several patterns available. Scales and numerous note orders including a Random mode are also available to create original ideas on the fly. The pattern length can be adjusted (from 1 to 24 steps) and, when synced externally, the step duration can also be adjusted (16th to 64th notes) Thanks to its ribbon controller, simple interface and display, the NTS-1 can be played and enjoyed very intuitively.

Deeper parameter changes are also possible with several combinations of buttons / knobs, furthering the possibilities. Don't let its size fool you; NTS-1 goes deep but keeps it all easily accessible. Customize the experience The fun isn't over after you finish building the NTS-1. The screws on the side panels are long enough to let you easily attach custom side panels. Get creative and use the NTS-1 in a wide variety of setups. Free bundle of music software The NTS-1 comes with a diverse variety of music software from Izotope including Ozone Elements which lets you not only create songs but also master them using AI.

zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Overall: This little thing is awesome. I run my MIcroFreak (which has zero effects) through it and that sounds amazing! The synth engine is very deep for a synth about as big as a guitar pedal. It has 20+ oscillators which can be shaped, an LFO, an arpeggiator, and did I mention the effects? Enough Mods (Chorus, Ensemble, Phaser and Flanger) Reverbs and Delays to make the sound massive. I can literally shake the windows in my house with this!Putting it together was like putting a circuit board in a little metal box and then putting the rest of the box together around it. Took about 15 minutes.I'd give this 10 stars if I could. Excellent piece of gear!
