NanoMod 7 won the Soundware category of the KVR Developer Challenge 2014 for best free soundware instrument!
“Ultra-affordable pocket-money Kontakt instruments utilising samples from a range of classic and vintage hardware synths in a very straightforward common interface… the Grit Filter sounds fabulous.
The ‘intelligent’ controls cross-reference each other to operate a range of behind-the-scenes settings aimed at optimising the character of the sounds. There’s also a similarly intelligent ‘randomise’ button onboard.
At this price all the NanoMods are well worth your attention” – Computer Music magazine
“The potential of these NanoMods is amazing” – Harvey Jones, NYC producer and composer
NanoMod 8-Bit brings the power of the NanoMod interface to bear on the shiny, aliased grittiness of vintage 8-bit digital synths. From searing synth leads to crunchy pads, 8-bit has the heft and muscle of those classic 80s polysynths right at its heart.
Wave 1 is a thickly detuned combination of two sawtooths and a PWM pulse, all beating it out together – great for movement and power. This is a very rough, aggressive wave.
Wave 2 is a typical early-digisynth waveform, with Breath and Air components and a lot of high-frequency noise. Dialling this in gives a great “airy pad” sound straight off; and it combines excellently with Wave 1 to add gloss to the raw sawtooth sound.
