Black Corporation’s Jupiter-8-esque ISE-NIN Synth, expected to be available in March


The ISE-NIN synth is almost ready for prime time


Good news – The good news is you can pre-order Black Corporation’s イセーニン (or ISE-NIN) synth, and it should be available in a few weeks time.


Inspired by Roland’s Jupiter-8, we first heard about the ISE-NIN in 2021, and it was scheduled to be released by the end of last year. But, the date was missed due to logistical problems and a delay in part delivery.

The ISE-NIN features eight voices, each of which comprises a fully-analogue voltage-controlled oscillator, analogue low-pass/high-pass filter, a noise generator, two ADSR envelopes and a VCA.


Two different presets can be layered, and each layer can have its own fully assignable velocity and poly-aftertouch controls and global MPE settings.


The ISE-NIN can be controlled via MIDI and can store 10 banks of 128 presets. Additionally, there is micro-tuning and an arpeggiator.


The full desktop version of the ISE-NIN costs $3749; a $1,199 deposit is required to pre-order it, with the balance tobe paid when it is ready to ship, which is expected to be in March. The PCB kit version costs $999 and requires a $299 if you want to pre-order it.
