Product details


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...


The Modor NF-1 has got an hardware upgrade! The new units in the stores now should all be this updated version. What's different?

A new type of potentiometers give the knobs a more stable, less 'wobbly' feeling

A new DAC gives a 12dB lower noisefloor, Cirrus Logic CS4334 DAC has been replaced by CS4392

A USB connector has been added (for MIDI over USB, no audio)

Line out is now capable of driving a headphone

Improved EMC design to further avoid picking up environment noise

But of course, the genuine Modor sound stays 100% identical. Your ears won't notice the difference, except maybe for a slight background hiss in the first generation units when recording soft, heavily filtered sounds. It's gone!

All software improvements and OS upgrades will still be available for all users of both the first and second generation devices.

Note: All NF-1m units had these improvements since the beginning. There are no 'first gen' or 'second gen' minimodors!
