YES, IT'S DIGITAL AND WE'RE PROUD OF IT!
WE ARE MAKING A VERY HANDS-ON, GROUNDBREAKING NEW SYNTH HAVING PLENTY OF KNOBS AND SWITCHES
TO SHAPE ANY SOUND PARAMETER THATS IN IT. NOTHING TO LOOK UP IN MENUS!

 

MODOR NF-1

The Modor NF-1 synth is a digital DSP synth very comparable to the classic Virtual Analog synths, but Modor is moving further on from this point. We use the classic structure of VA-synths, with oscillators, filters and effects, with parameters that can be modulated using LFO's and envelopes. But every element has been rethought and reinvented. In a digital way.

The NF-1 has a classic 12dB/oct resonant filter, but we are also giving it a versatile formant filter, never seen in hardware before! It does make classic sawtooth waves, but we're also including a lot of other brand new modulatable noisy waveforms! It has a classic delay effect, but we make every parameter editable to give way to special unexpected effect types! And so on...
