Superbooth 2022: Korg’s NTS-2 is a ‘studio Swiss Army Knife’ that ships with a semi-modular synth book

Given the numeric nature of its name, a sequel to Korg’s NTS-1 build-it-yourself synth always felt like it could be on the cards. The NTS-2 isn’t a complete surprise, then, but its design – along with the fact that it ships with a complementary book – does come a little out of leftfield.

This is chiefly because the centerpiece of the hardware isn’t a synth engine but a 4-channel oscilloscope. This offers dual stereo inputs, which enable you to study, compare and overlap up to four signals at once. There are multiple color display modes, and an interface that can be navigated with menu buttons and a clickable encoder.
