Developers Kevin Holland and John Staskevich have officially introduced the NTH Music Synthesizer, a ‘fun-to-use, sonically-rich, hackable music synthesizer’.
The Nth Music Synthesizer features digital oscillators, an analog low-pass filter, an integrated step sequencer and MIDI I/O.
Back in November, we had a sneak preview of the Nth Synthesizer. Now, Holland & Staskevich are planning a Kickstarter project to fund the production of the new synth, starting February 2, 2012. Upon successful funding, production of the NTH will begin and the design will be open-sourced.
Audio examples, product photos, and additional documentation can be found at the NTH website,
