The Nu:Tekt NS-1 is a compact synthesizer that packs a punch with its impressive capabilities. Drawing inspiration from Korg's flagship synthesizers, it features a digital oscillator that delivers powerful sound and versatility.
One of the standout features of the Nu:Tekt NS-1 is its robust arpeggiator. With various scale models, numerous ranges, and control options, the arpeggiator offers endless possibilities for creating dynamic and evolving sequences. The instrument also includes a multimode filter, three LFOs (Low-Frequency Oscillators), stereo effect processors, and more, providing a comprehensive set of tools for shaping your sound.
The interface and display of the Nu:Tekt NS-1, coupled with its ribbon controller, make it a joy to use. The instrument is equipped with numerous control knobs and switches that allow you to explore and push the boundaries of sound, all within a compact and portable design.
The primary oscillator of the Nu:Tekt NS-1 is compatible with sounds created for Korg's prologue and minilogue xd synthesizers. It can generate Sawtooth, Triangle, Square, and VPM waveforms, as well as load custom oscillators created using Korg's logue SDK. This versatility allows for easy manipulation and reshaping of waveforms to achieve your desired tones.
The Nu:Tekt NS-1 offers a wide range of filters, including Low pass 2/4-pole, High pass 2/4-pole, Band pass 2/4-pole, and OPEN mode, all with resonance. These filters provide extensive control over the overall tone and character of the oscillator, allowing you to shape your sound with precision.
To further enhance your synthesizer sounds, the Nu:Tekt NS-1 features three built-in effects: reverbs, delays, and modulation effects. These effects can be used to add depth, dimension, and unique characteristics to your sounds. Additionally, the instrument includes an arpeggiator with various patterns to choose from. You can select the note order or even randomize it, making it easy to generate original musical ideas and concepts.
In summary, the Nu:Tekt NS-1 is a compact synthesizer that offers impressive sound capabilities and a versatile feature set. With its powerful arpeggiator, flexible oscillator, wide range of filters, built-in effects, and intuitive interface, this pocket-sized instrument allows you to create unique and inspiring music wherever you go.
