Notes: Easy self-assembly for Korg's intuitive oscilloscope, part of the Nu:Tekt range. Surprisingly useful as a tool for visualising sounds, dialling in synth patches and understanding how sound works.… Read more
The ultimate toolkit for the modern musician
The Nu:Tekt NTS-2 oscilloscope kit is a DIY multifunctional tool for musicians. Building on a 4-channel oscilloscope - monitoring control voltage (CV) and audio signals alike - NTS-2 also packs a flexible waveform generator, a spectrum analyser, and tuner functionality into a
build-it-yourself device which fits in the palm of your hand!
The NTS-2 kit is compact and easy to assemble with no soldering required, but don't let its size fool you - it packs a real punch!
It's an oscilloscope, tuner, FFT, and spectrum analyser that is accurate, intuitive, and incredibly useful. But that's not all - using its dual stereo IN, dual stereo THRU/OUT, and two separate OUTPUTs, you can wire it into your synth rig and use its dual waveform generators to give yourself an extra pair of oscillators or LFOs!
4 channel oscilloscope
Duel Waveform Generator
4 channel oscilloscope
With dual stereo inputs, you can visualise up to four signals at once, comparing and overlapping them with ease. A variety of display modes let you choose how you see your data, while the user interface is clear and quick, thanks to its dedicated menu buttons and clickable encoder knob, and 240 x 320 pixel 2.8" colour LCD screen. NTS-2 even has a powerful "Lissajous" mode - opening the door to creativity and making it possible to visualise widely available oscilloscope art, for extra fun with your device.
Dual Waveform Generator
A flexible Wave Generator mode provides 2 oscillators with dedicated outputs. Each oscillator can create a variety of waveforms - sine, square, triangle, sawtooth, pulse, and noise - whose shape and phase can be adjusted to suit many applications. These sounds can be used in the audio range or as control voltage sources, and they can be set to cycle continuously or act as one-shot impulses; that means you can turn them into LFOs, envelopes, triggers, and control voltage generators, as well as sound sources. Attaching the NTS-2 to any patchable synthesizer instantly expands its power.
NTS-2 also comes with a dedicated FFT (Fast Fourier Transform) mode with a real-time spectrum analyser.
This multi-functional utility kit wouldn't be complete without a precise and easy-to-use tuner with multiple display modes.
The NTS-2 offers many ways to connect to your rig. Alongside its 4-channel input and dual waveform output features, its dual stereo THRU/OUT ports enable you to keep it wired into your system, rather than constantly plugging and unplugging cables. NTS-2 lets you maintain your signal flow at all times - even when powered off. NTS-2 maximizes portability and flexibility by using either batteries or a USB-C power supply.
