Analogue Solutions Nyborg-12

   (0 reviews)

Nyborg is part of the Analogue Solutions range of analogue music equipment. Nyborg is a precision electronic musical instrument. It combines all the often needed music electronic circuitry to make a music synthesizer in one compact module.

Key Nyborg Features:

- Full rugged steel/aluminium case – no plastic mouldings.

- Hand built in Great Britain.

- Good quality smooth potentiometers, fully sealed against dust.

- Good quality knobs with spun aluminium caps.

- High grade double sided circuit board.

- High Quality 16bit DAC for MIDI-CV conversion.

- Very stable MIDI to CV.

- Very stable analogue oscillators.

- Hand built by humans.

- True retro analogue voice and modulation circuits.


Nyborg is a compact true analogue mono synth in a neat, smart, small package. When we say ‘real analogue’ we mean that the entire audio patch and all modulation is entirely analogue, using circuits based on awesome sounding vintage 1970s designs. There circuits are not locked down by CPUs, controls are quantised and read by CPUs. With exception of the MIDI to CV circuit, which by its nature must have a digital element, Nyborg really is analogue and the sound benefit is immediately apparent! We get may good comments about how good Analogue Solutions sound, how good, warm and full of character they are.

The synth has been designed by a musician who is a big fan of electronic music, and knows how to program a synth, not designed by an engineer. So, the modulation choices and range of sounds they produced have all been carefully thought out and quickly give you those sounds you want: huge bass, synth leads, percussion, effects, modular style sounds.

What are the Differences Between Nyborg-12 and Telemark?

They essentially share the same circuits, so will sound similar. The main differences are
outlined below:

Nyborg12 Advantages / Additions:

+ Octave switches on the VCO.

+ ‘Free run’ setting - disconnects VCO from MIDI pitch. Good for effects or using the VCO
as a modulator.

+ Wide setting - allowing the VCO Tune knob to have a super wide range - good for when
the VCO is used as a modulator.

+ Q Boost on the filter - to make resonance go insane.

+ VCO Sub Osc is hard wired to the Mixer - for super convenience.

+ Much smaller than Telemark - for those with limited space.

+ Lower price point.

+ Two Nyborgs can be racked side by side using the optional rack kit.

Telemark Advantages / Additions

+ Plenty of signal patch points! Telemark can be more fully integrated into an existing
modular system. Cross patching between the two is possible.

+ The patch points enable additional modulation, effects and sounds that cannot be done
with the switches alone.

+ Ring Modulation.

+ The Sub Osc is not hard wired. This means it can be patched up in other ways, like a
clock divider, or to half the rate of the LFO square wave.

So in summary - which to choose?

Main points are
Do you want the advantages the extra sockets give?
There are points personal to your situation!

If price and size are not an issue - then
Nyborg - the fact it has Sub Osc hard wired allows a wider range of sounds to be made
without patching.
Telemark - it will do far more, but requires the work of patching.
So the summary here is Telemark will do much more than Nyborg but requires the extra
effort (some patching). Nyborg will do more than an un-patched Telemark.
