1010music Intros Nanobox Pocket Polysynths

 

Lemondrop and fireball join the ranks of tabletop instruments.

 

1010music has introduced the nanobox series, a pair of pocket-sized polyphonic synthesizers, based on granular and wavetable synthesis in cute and capable packages. The nanobox mini synthesizers are designed to be portable and powerful, so that they work as mobile music making devices or as part of your existing studio.

 

There are two to choose from – lemondrop and fireball – with each being polyphonic and offering touchscreen control.

 

The official overview video:

 

1010music promises a “freshly-squeezed approach to granular synthesis,” lemondrop is powered by two granulators plus an oscillator, along with two multimode filters, two envelopes, two LFOs and one modulation sequencer. There are six effects, too: flanger, distortion, chorus, phaser, delay and reverb.

 

The lemondrop is loaded with sound from lush pads to glitchy textures, and you can morph and shape sounds with the X/Y touchscreen controller. You get 100 presets and WAV files to get you started, and you can either edit these or create your own patches by using the touchscreen to take a deep dive into the parameter set.

nanobox / fireball

 

The fireball looks rather similar – notwithstanding the fact that it is red but has two wavetables (plus an oscillator) rather than granulators. You get the same line-up of filters, envelopes, LFOs, modulation sequencer and effects, and you can expect punchy leads and atmospheric pads out of it.

 

Both nanoboxes are powered by USB-C, giving you plenty of options, and include Mini TRS connections for MIDI I/O, clock in, and line I/O. As well as the two-inch touchscreen, in each case you also get two knobs and four buttons.
