I don't know if the NTS-1 should be discussed in this sub-forum. Mods: feel free to move it somewhere else.

I think I'd like like this little synth that has the ability to load wave-forms (wave table?) like the Minilogue XD. It's sort of compatible w/ the XD concernig that.

What I also like it that it is one of the cheapest ways to get your hands on a 24 dB/octave (4 pole) low pass filter (like the Minimoog). However, the filter is bypassed if you connect external audio (like another synth) to it. Darn it! Do y'all thing that it'll be possible after a firmware upgrade? And will the envelope of the filter be triggered via midi so that I can connect my Monologue to it so I have a 4 pole filter?

Anyway, some people have stated that they are interested in the effects section alone. That section is not bypassed by external audio.

You technically don't have a Minimoog filter because it's digital. Digital oscillator are kind of ok compare to their analogue waveform but with filter forget about it.

I'm not saying sounds s**t but don't expect a 4pole analogue filter and don't even think about Moog filter,even true analogue filyer don't sound like Moog.

You think people are crazy to pay real money for a Moog when they can spend $100 for the digital version?

The new NTS-1 sounds great but it's a digital synth, again nothing wrong with it digital synth can do what analogue synth can't. I just found silly buy something when you want something else, if you don't have the money just save it, pay monthly. Back in the days synth where much more expensive I don't understand why now it's a problem spend $1000 for a good synth.

I hear you. But the Behringer Model D (24 dB filter) is only 300 Euro and it sounds pretty good, don't you think? Same thing goes for my Monologue: only 244 Euro and I think it sounds pretty beefy w/ its 12 dB filter. I thought that a simple machine like the NTS-1 might pack a surprising punch like those two. But I might be wrong...
