Nina is a polyphonic, multi-timbral synthesiser with 12 voice polyphony that artfully unites the tactile and sonic qualities of classic analogue synthesisers with modern advancements like motorised patch recall and automation, giving you the control of a soft synth with all the benefits of a physical instrument.
Its impressive features a versatile multi-timbral capacity across 4 parts, a robust high-resolution control panel with assignable controls, an intuitive modulation matrix for efficient editing, and 3 oscillators per voice, including 2 analogue VCOs and 1 digital wavetable. The synth also boasts patch morphing, onboard effects, and more, making it an incredible tool to have at your fingertips.
A highlight of NINA is its innovative motorised controller developed by Melbourne Instruments. Designed to replace traditional potentiometers, this controller employs a brushless drone motor and an ultra-high-resolution optical sensor, offering exceptional durability with a lifespan rating exceeding 50 million cycles. This motorised interface enhances user interaction by providing the tactile feel and precision of analogue controls while enabling instant recall and haptics. The dynamic nature of the knobs, transitioning from smooth to detented to multi-position switches, imbues the user experience with practicality and engagement beyond that of standard analogue controls.
“Nina is a game changer, definitely in my top 5 of the synths of all time. It’s instant morphing possibilities, it’s ‘spin’ effect giving cool spatial feel, it’s automated recall which is the solution everyone has been wishing for. And what's more, this great little synth sounds incredible.” - Jean-Michel Jarre
