Superbooth 2022: Korg’s NTS-2 is a “Swiss army knife of the studio” delivered with a book of semi-modular synths

Given the digital nature of its name, a sequence of Korg’s NTS-1 build yourself synth always felt like it could be on the cards. So the NTS-2 isn’t a total surprise, but its design – as well as the fact that it comes with a companion book – is a bit out of left field.

This is mainly because the heart of the hardware is not a synthesis engine but a 4-channel oscilloscope. This offers two stereo inputs, which allow you to study, compare and layer up to four signals at once. There are several color display modes and a navigable interface with menu buttons and a clickable encoder.
