Superbooth 2019: Korg Reveals Nu:Tekt DIY Digital Progammable Synthesizer Kit

This DIY synthesizer kit, teased by Korg at Superbooth, appears to have a built-in keyboard, onboard fx, arpeggiator and a digital oscillator with multiple waves. Here's what we know so far.  

Eagle eyed Superbooth visitors have spotted something interesting on the Korg stand at the show. Nu:Tekt appears to be a soldering-not-required DIY synthesizer kit, albeit currently in prototype form. Still, Korg evidently felt it was far enough along in its development to at least tease it by displaying the box and a few tidbits of information. 

Based on the printed text we can see it has a digital oscillator with square, triangle and saw waves plus VPM and user wave capability, a multimode filter, onboard FX, an envelope generator and a built-in keyboard. It would seem that the “User” part of the oscillator is compatible with the Prologue and Minilogue custom oscillators and effects.

There's no pricing or availability info available yet, but stay tuned for more as we get it!
