  1. I was also thinking about putting my NTS-1 into rack, but $129 just for the PCB panel with jack sockets and a cheap USB isolator seems like a bit too much. I’d expect at least an amp to pull the output to eurorack levels. I mean the NTS-1 itself is about $100.
    Also wonder how Korg will react to the fact that they use their name on this product.
    But hey, the video is nicely produced.

    1. no doubt a cease and desist at some point. but it looks classy and despite the price I would not have hesitated if i were on eurocrack

  2. the NTS 1/8 inch jacks are surface mount. i pulled a pad within a month. this would alleviate failures of this type. however, I have an H8000 instead, so… bone pile.

  3. It’s about $110 more than it’s worth. I’ve been working on and off on something like this but using the headers on the PCB and trying to get to grips with developing an entirely new top panel (Korg provide an open source project to aid this; sadly the chip shortage makes it a bit hard to get into at the moment) rather than just bolting something entirely passive on top, putting in level shifters and some CV/Gate circuitry. I’d be embarrassed to do less.
