Korg NTS-3 KAOSS Pad Lets You Load Custom Effects


Ahead of the 2024 NAMM Show, Korg has already announced the microKORG 2; the KingKORG Neo; the opsix mkII; wavestate, opsix and modwave modules; and the NTS-1 mkII DIY synth.

Today, they have also announced the Nu:Tekt NTS-3 kaoss pad, a new effects unit that combines the classic KAOSS X/Y pad touch interface and KAOSS effects into a compact yet powerful customizable DIY kit.

With up to 4 effects playable at the same time and deep editing options, NTS-3 stands as a performance powerhouse, offering unparalleled versatility that elevates your on-the-go performances to new heights.

And, like Korg’s other multi-engine devices, the NTS-3 kaoss pad lets you load third-party effects, and even create your own custom effects, using a dedicated logueSDK (Software Development Kit).

  • logueSDK means you can load your own effects
