Alesis NanoSynth Sample Playback Synthesizer Module

   (0 reviews)

Don't let its compact design fool you...the NanoSynth™ is a powerful sound creation tool that offers features and sonic quality that go far beyond other modules in its price range.

The NanoSynth's 8 MB sound library includes 512 preset programs and 128 spaces for user-designed programs. Pianos, organs, cutting-edge and vintage synth sounds, strings, brass, winds, guitars, drums, percussion and much more are offered within this sonic collection. Fifteen complete drumsets and an entire bank of sounds are arranged in the General MIDI hierarchy, making it easy to set up standardized creation/playback of music and multimedia projects.

The NanoSynth's true 64-voice polyphony and 64-part multitimbral response across its 16 MIDI channels lets you create lush, intricate orchestrations. Built-in Alesis digital multieffects include great-sounding reverb, chorus, distortion, delay, rotary speaker simulation and more. In addition to standard stereo audio outputs on 1/4" connectors, the NanoSynth offers a built-in serial computer port as well as audio inputs on phono (RCA) plugs so you can use it with a sound card on your computer. Also, its MIDI In and Out/Thru connectors enable you to use the NanoSynth for sequence recording and playback or to connect with MIDI software tools.
