Modor MiniModor Is The NF-1 Synth But Smaller, Cheaper, With New Added Features

In reducing the size of the NF-1 into the NF-1m, Minimodor, you'd expect there be fewer features and power. However, this little brother to the NF-1 packs all the power and adds some more features!

We were seriously impressed by the Modor Music  NF-1 synthesizer when we saw it at Superbooth 2016 and then when Sara Sims reviewed it our love for it continued. So, we were excited Modor introduced the NF-1m at Superbooth 2017.

So the NF-1m is exactly the same architecture and sound engine as the NF-1. It's the same synth, but much smaller, more compact and portable and it's even cheaper too! 

Here's a short video with a sound demo of the Modor NF-1m from Superbooth 2017:

What's New / Different?

  • New rotary controls with a more stable feeling than the controls on the original NF-1
  • New DAC
  • Midi over USB
  • MPE-support (for Roli, Linnstrument, and similar instruments)
NOTE: the new batch of our main synth, the NF-1, will also feature this new DAC & more stable knobs! MPE was already added in the latest free available OS-update.
