New for Winter Namm 2015, the NW-1 is the first Module by waldorf to be made in the eurorack format. You can finally upgrade your modular synth with an awesome wavetable synth for classic Waldorf sounds and much more.
The Heart of a Classic Wavetable Synth
The NW1 is a monophonic oscillator synth with an advanced wave table engine and independent controls that allow you to shape your sounds into something truly original. The new engine combines the ability of traditional wavetable synthesis with wavetable playback so that you have a wide arsenal of classic sounds from the waldorf back catalogue.
You'll get the tables from both of the unusual Waldorf Microwave synths, the legendary Wave XT, right up to the groundbreaking NAVE that's right at the cutting edge of wavetable technology. What's more, the engine also comes with independent control of a wide set of functions, including spectral envelope and noisiness like on the Nave.
You'll be able to have endless fun tweaking and exploring the rich harmonics and tones, thanks to a number of sturdy and high quality knobs and switches. A perfect addition to a modular unit, don't you think!
Make Your Own Distinctive Sounds
Now you may be thinking that you dont want to just be stuck in the sounds of the 80's (great as they may seem!), and would like to create something original that could define your own unique sound. Your modular synth is your own creation so why shouldn't the basis of your music?
The NW1 sound engine can be used to sample any sound and transfer the audio into a wavetable that you can then manipulate like any other sound in the NW-1. All you need to do is connect any sound source and select the NW-1 to record. Alternatively, the synth has a USB input to connect to your computer. This allows you to manage your wavetables and create text to integrated speech synth sounds, offering even more originality and creative control.
Designed for Eurorack
As you can probably see, the sonic options on the NW-1 are vast, if not endless. And the fact that you can integrate this beast into the world of your modular system, the results could be pretty mindblowing! If you want a combination of the pure, sharp and powerful classic wavetable sounds with the expandability to wherever your creative mind want's to go, the NW1 is a must have for your system!
