KORG Nu:Tekt NTS-1 Digital Kit Shipping in November

Correction: This article initially stated that the NTS-1 was shipping now. I was greatly mistaken!

KORG has announced a release date and price for the Nu:Tekt NTS-1! They will begin shipping in November for $100. This is a digital synth that you build yourself... kind of. I mean, you don't have to solder anything. You're basically just putting the already assembled parts together.

The real DIY to be found on NTS-1 is in the powerful synth and multi-effects engine. You can actually reprogram the thing! This has the same engine as the KORG prologue, and KORG minilogue xd. If you're ready to get down and nerdy with code, you can use the same logue SDK to reprogram the NTS-1!

YouTuber loopop did an extremely well produced review of the NTS-1!


Roland has announced the imminent release of a new mobile groovebox. The $500 MC-101 offers 4 tracks of DAWless jamming potential, for both audio and MIDI sequencing. For $1000 you can get 8 tracks in the bigger MC-707. Roland also introduced a new mini-Juno in their Boutique line.

Video Description:

The Roland MC-101 GROOVEBOX combines premium-quality synthesizer and drum sounds, samples, patterns and effects in a compact four-track sequencer that’s go-everywhere portable. Create whenever, and wherever, inspiration strikes with this pocket production studio and add performance-ready tracks to your DAWless or compact synthesizer setup.

The MC-101 has a four-track sequencer optimized for beatmakers, producers and mobile music makers creating today's electronic and dance-oriented music. You can use the 16 ultra-sensitive RGB pads to create drum, bass, and synthesizer patterns and create your own original music. It's your musical playground, where you can freely combine loops and one-shots with melodic phrases including your own imported audio recordings and MIDI sequences. Compose and trigger clips, rearrange, re-sample, record your knob movements, and more.

On top of that, add the Roland sounds that have defined electronic and dance genres for over forty years. Legendary instruments like the TR-808, TR-909, JUNO-106 and SH-101 are all here, ready to replicate classic sounds or be combined, tweaked, and processed into entirely new sounds.

With the MC-101's massive effects palette, your music sounds polished and fully-produced. Each track has independent effects processors with a huge number of variations. The lush chorus brings depth to pads and other synth sounds. Delays and reverbs create evocative spaces and add movement to delicate sequences. Overdrive, distortion, and amp simulation add grit and intensity to synths, guitars, drums and more. You can also run your entire mix through master effects like filters, bit-crushers and a master bus compressor that glues it all together with punch and clarity.
