NanoMod 7 – 8-Bit
“NanoMod 8-Bit brings the power of the NanoMod interface to bear on the shiny, aliased grittiness of vintage 8-bit digital synths. From searing synth leads to crunchy pads, 8-bit has the heft and muscle of those classic 80s polysynths right at its heart.
Wave 1 is a thickly detuned combination of two sawtooths and a PWM pulse, all beating it out together – great for movement and power. This is a very rough, aggressive wave.
Wave 2 is a typical early-digisynth waveform, with Breath and Air components and a lot of high-frequency noise. Dialling this in gives a great “airy pad” sound straight off; and it combines excellently with Wave 1 to add gloss to the raw sawtooth sound.”
