 Unlike many synths of today that can overwhelm with countless controls, modulators, and sequencers, NF-01 is an homage to the foundation of subtractive synthesis. You will feel a a great freedom in being able to imagine nearly any sound and create it in mere minutes. Starting from some of the included presets, basic waveforms, or even a blank slate is no longer a prison of tone. Getting from where you are to where you want to be usually only involves a few turns of the knob.
