Nina, 12-voice analog polysynth with motorized controls, now in preorders -

12 Voice Polyphony.

Fully analog signal path.

Motorized recallable and automatable control panel using long lasting zero wear encoders with the feel and precision of analog pots.

Multitimbral, layered, split, or overlapping.

Hackable Open Source software built on a powerful Raspberry Pi 4 running Elk Audio OS.


Love the idea of these motorised potentiometers, based on brushless drone motors. I guess they would be a bit like the volume and transport controls on the Teenage Engineering OB-4. Those controls feel great.

From these first glances it looks like an interesting, innovative design, and a very competent synth.
