This is not a 1:1 clone and will not load hardware presets.

Please note that this app's sound is closer to the A1, which is a different sound from the NL1/NL2X.

1.0.2
Apr 19, 2024
THANKS EVERYONE!
* NEW: "Drive" code, that is more inspired by the hardware. Plus, this new DSP is more expressive when you move the "Heat" knob. And, I understand the sound will be slightly different on your existing presets. But, this new code will allow you to dial in more variations of drive
* Fixed some Sequencer weirdness in AUv3. Now when the host transport is off, the sequencer will start right away. This is helpful when the rate/tempo is low. Of course, when the transport is on "Playing" the sequencer will lock to your host beat
* LOTS of small improvements and bug fixes!

We are still working on the app, more updates coming... stay tuned!
++ More FREE Preset BANKS coming SOON!
1.0.1
Apr 18, 2024
Thanks everyone!
* NEW: Filter Envelope VELOCITY knob. This makes it feel more like a hardware synth. The harder you press keys, the more the filter envelope is applied. (Tip: Filter Modulation needs to be turned up on main page to hear). Also, try turning the "MIDI Input Velocity Curve" in "Settings" to Medium (instead of Hard) for more MIDI Keyboard expressiveness.
* Quick Fixes for some small bugs, more updates coming soon
* We're aware of some probs w/ Logic & Seq issues and are working hard on it!
++ More FREE Preset BANKS coming SOON!
We are still working on the app, thanks for your patience. We've read all your emails, and thank you!
More updates coming... stay tuned!
