Optimal tool for sound ftler

17.04.2015
If you pack him, the synth-nerd heart makes a joyous air jump. The Nyborg is small, but not too small and looks easy to bite. In any case, a device that one simply likes to look at and attack, which is ever an important point, if not the most important.
A small minus, if one can say so, are the controls, which do not feel as valuable to me as the manufacturer is described, or they feel lighter, more weightless than I expected - however, the Potentiometers are really good!
What I find a pity is that the power supply has not been inserted and you have an external power supply again, but that is also painful. Also, there is no on / off switch. If the Nyborg hangs on the river, it runs. This almost hurts more than the external power supply. If you do not use a connector strip with a switch you have to turn on and off each time, a pity!

If the Nyborg first sounds, these minus points are forgotten at a stroke, or the longer you use it, the more paradoxically these minuspoints support the charm of this discreetly constructed analogue screwdriver. The sound is fantastic! The modulation possibilities are well selected and sufficiently available, and if something is missing, signals can be introduced via the small set of CV inputs. The highlight here is for me the FM cross modulation of the two oscillators - metal in all qualities, from "clean, shiny chrome" to "splintering steel", genial, and it almost always sounds very musical.

It is basically a simple, reduced instrument, so the oscillator section only has a pulse and sawtooth wave, which means that it is characterized by a rather crusty and gentle character, or because its strengths are also important - depending on the coordination with the Multimode filter Great!) He can sound gentle ...

His sound spectrum is very far! From clean, liquid basses to powerful, powerful leads to amazingly thick, wonderfully rich, rich pads, everything is possible. A sub-oscillator or alternatively white noise provide additional density.
He has a special strength in the percussive field, which is due to the extremely fast and precise envelope generators.

The only element that does not convince me is the LFO. That it is not clockable, is for me rather incidental, also the waveforms including S & H are accustomed and good basic equipment. What bother me here is that the modulation intensity is relatively flat, even with a full stop at the desired attenuator, the effect of the LFO is thereby rather limited.

Shortly to the filter: Here the character is shaped. Of course, the -12db filter is not as strong as a -24db filter. But that's exactly what makes it sound different from most others, but -24db is more common and almost standard. LP, HP, BP and Notch (my favorite mode currently) offer a variety of possibilities for sound design - I would like to say: I love this filter! To modulate it with an additional sequence (via CV input or with Midi operation over the Velocity value) offers fun and movement without end!

In summary, a great, high quality instrument with absolutely independent character, very suitable for musical use and fun, fun, fun! The price is of course frightening when one reads the comparatively manageable features (which often offer digital synths here is often already as grotesque) - the reward however immediately after commissioning.

Analog!

01.01.2017
Sounds absolutely fantastic and there is no need for dramatic steering solutions to change the sound. The knobs respond to the slightest. Solidly built and exudes quality throughout.

The only minus which I find a bit strange is that it lacks an on / off button so it becomes to pulling the power cord each time it is turned off.
