Nord Micro Modular - Digital Spaghetti from the 90s [No Talking Demo]

"Nord Micro Modular - Digital Spaghetti from the 90s [No Talking Demo]

Tonight I demo some patches from the Clavia Nord Micro Modular. Released in 1999, this really was an innovative synthesizer. It's limited to 4 voices, so you will see/hear some voice stealing taking place especially with patches with long release times.

I did use some reverb and delay in Ableton to make things sound a bit more enjoyable.

This synth I've owned for a few years but haven't really had a chance to dig into it. Well, tonight I start! I did do some playing around with it on a live stream some years ago, but nothing really useful to folks so I wanted to give it a proper audio demo video.

Most patches are factory patches, but I did have a go with some patching, I used a preset as a starting point, but created something totally new. This really makes me want to try to pick up the actual Nord Modular or the G2. Let me know what you think of the Nord Micro Modular!
