Korg’s NTS-1 is a small but powerful digital synth, designed as an introduction to DIY electronics and customisation. Thanks to developer Momo Müller, the NTS-1 can now be edited via your computer, giving you direct access to all sound parameters, modulation and storage via sound files.
The NTS-1 is based on Korg’s Multi-Engine, which is also used in the Prologue and Minilogue XD. That means it can be upgraded by loading plugins into the hardware adding extra features. Check out, for examples, the Sinevibes Ring, a ring modulator plugin shown here in use on the Minilogue XD synth:
You can purchase the NTS-1 editor here, priced at €5.90. Scroll down for a video of the software in action, more examples of some of the custom plugins that can be loaded in Korg’s digital synth and a demonstration of how nicely it plays with the Make Noise 0-Coast.
