Korg NTS-2 Oscilloscope Kit

Originally the Korg NTS-2 was released in a bundle with the critically acclaimed “PATCH & TWEAK with KORG”, the NTS-2 is now available as a stand-alone kit. The NTS-2 is perfect for musicians and creators of all backgrounds and levels of experience. It provides solid tools and precise references to cultivate your craft.

A Studio Must-Have

The NTS-2 kit is compact and easy to assemble. But don’t let its size fool you – it packs a real punch! The NTS-2 is an oscilloscope, tuner, FFT, and spectrum analyzer that is accurate, intuitive, and incredibly useful.

Using its dual stereo IN, dual stereo THRU/OUT, and two separate OUTPUTs, you can wire it to your synth rig. Also, use its dual waveform generators to give yourself an extra pair of oscillators or LFOs! It’s the ideal tool for every synth lover and modular user – from beginner to pro.

The Best Companion for Synth Learners

Studying waveforms, frequency and time relationships, audio signals, and control voltages become clear if we can see how they change and interact, not just listen to what they’re doing. Seeing these signals come alive in full colour as we patch and tweak gives our learning process a huge boost!

NTS-2 Has The Musician In Mind!

The oscilloscope, a tool for visualizing signals and voltages, has been around for many years. However, they are mostly seen as scientific instruments, they might not seem like something a musician could easily use. Not anymore – for the first time, an oscilloscope has the musician in mind!

The NTS-2’s interface is simple, clean, and easy to use. Rather than twiddling knobs and trying to understand obscure parameters, you can look at your signals and understand them quick. That way, your artistic focus can remain where it belongs: on making your music.

A Useful Toolset for Musicians

The NTS-2 includes a variety of useful studio functions, all in a pocket-sized, elegant package that you can take anywhere.

NTS-2 4-Channel Oscilloscope

With its dual stereo inputs, you can study up to four signals at once, comparing and overlapping them with ease. A variety of display modes lets you see your data in colour. A huge advantage over the old oscilloscopes you’ve seen in science fiction movies!

Its user interface is clear and quick, thanks to its dedicated menu buttons and clickable encoder knob. Its 240 x 320 pixel 2.8” colour LCD is a joy to watch. Also, NTS-2 even has a powerful Lissajous mode. It opens the door to creativity and makes it possible to visualize widely available oscilloscope art.

FFT / Spectrum Analyzer

The NTS-2 also comes with a dedicated FFT (Fast Fourier Transform) mode with a real-time Spectrum Analyzer. These handy tools have always been out of reach for the synth musician. Now you can carry them in your pocket!

Dual Waveform Generator

But the NTS-2 is much more than just an oscilloscope. The flexible Wave Generator mode has 2 oscillators with dedicated outputs, so you can test your synth rig. Each oscillator can create a variety of waveforms whose shape and phase can be adjusted to suit many applications.

These sounds can be used in the audio range or as control voltage sources. Also, set them to cycle continuously or act as one-shot impulses. Therefore, you can turn them into LFOs, envelopes, triggers, and control voltage generators, as well as sound sources. Attaching the NTS-2 to any patchable synthesizer instantly expands its power in useful ways, making it an analog synth player’s dream tool.

Tuner

And of course, coming from KORG, this multi-functional utility kit wouldn’t be complete without a precise and easy-to-use Tuner with multiple display modes! Being able to receive and monitor up to 4 input signals at the same time, the NTS-2 is an analog synth player’s dream tool.

NTS-2’s Connectivity and Ease of Use

The NTS-2 offers plenty of ways to connect to your studio, despite its small footprint. Besides its 4-channel input and dual waveform output features, its dual stereo THRU/OUT ports let you leave it wired into your system.

It’s much easier to understand what you’re doing if you can see the signals and use them at the same time, rather than constantly plugging and unplugging cables. This handy function lets you maintain your signal flow at all times – even when the NTS-2 is off. Speaking of power, the NTS-2 maximizes portability and flexibility by using either batteries or a USB-C power supply, depending on your needs.

Nu:Tekt DIY fun

As with other Nu:Tekt products, the NTS-2 is a DIY (Do It Yourself) kit that is extremely easy and quick to assemble. The NTS-2 oscilloscope kit is a stand-alone kit and does not include the “PATCH & TWEAK with KORG” book, nor the exclusive side panels and stickers that were included in the bundle (you can learn more about the “NTS-2 + PATCH & TWEAK with KORG” Bundle here).
