The NTS-2 Kit and “Patch & Tweak with KORG” book were conceived and developed to complement each other, providing not only fundamental knowledge, but also the tools to guide and inspire synth lovers through their music journey.
The Nu:Tekt NTS-2 is a DIY multifunctional tool for musicians. Building on a 4-channel oscilloscope that makes it easy to monitor and analyze audio and Control Voltage signals alike, the NTS-2 also includes a flexible waveform generator and spectrum analyzer, as well as tuner functions that make it the ideal addition to any studio.
“Patch & Tweak with KORG '' is the latest title in the “Patch & Tweak” series from noted publisher Bjooks. It’s a comprehensive guide to semi-modular synthesis and the music that it has inspired, presented with a focus on the MS-20 Mini, the groundbreaking volca modular, the reimagined ARP 2600 M, and the SQ-1 and SQ-64 sequencers. Dozens of tutorials, tips, and tricks cover everything from the basics to advanced sound design methods. Interviews with famous and emerging artists, insights from KORG and ARP engineers, and detailed timelines of KORG synthesizers and ARP’s legendary keyboards, make this book a must-have for any synth enthusiast.
The book features a wide variety of tips and tricks that use the NTS-2’s many functions to expand the power of your studio –just look for the NTS-2 icon!
2/ NTS-2: The modern musician's Swiss Army knife
The NTS-2 kit is compact and easy to assemble (*), but don’t let its size fool you – it packs a real punch! The NTS-2 is an oscilloscope, tuner, FFT and spectrum analyzer 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! It’s the ideal tool for every synth lover and modular user – from beginner to pro.
(*) No soldering needed, the assembly process requires less than 10 minutes
The best companion for synth learners
Even though synthesizers are musical instruments first and foremost, learning about them is easier and more intuitive if we can use our eyes to supplement our ears. Studying waveforms, frequency and time relationships, audio signals, and control voltages becomes clear and immediate if we can see how they change and interact, not just listen to what they’re doing. Seeing these signals come alive in full color as we patch and tweak gives our learning process a huge boost!
The oscilloscope, a tool for visualizing signals.
