Synth kings KORG have recently dropped an official line of DIY-focused instruments under the Nu:Tekt banner, starting with the NTS-1. The NTS-1 is a programmable synth kit and is made to be assembled completely by hand.
Considering its size this synth could be a tough contender for similar products on the market. Teenage Engineering’s Pocket Operators or the Organelle by Critter & Guitari could have their work cut out for them soon.
Build, tweak and connect with KORG’s new NTS-1. The first model under the Nu:Tekt line, this pocket rocket buddies up perfectly with the KORG synth family.
The NTS-1 runs a digital oscillator inspired by the MULTI engine inside KORG’s Prologue and Minilogue XD synths. The same development application programming interface (API) from these two models have been put into the NTS-1 too, allowing you to design and upload custom oscillators and effects.
The kit contains a single perforated chassis piece, printed circuit board and hardware bag. The features of the synth include a single mono digital oscillator, multimode filter, three LFOs, three stereo effects processors and arpeggiator.
