On its product page, the brand explained its goal with Nymphes was to “condense an ambitious idea in a small and compact box”. Dreadbox also dedicated the synth to “all abused and oppressed women” of the world.
The brand wrote: “May our voices unite and bring light, joy and happiness to this world of injustice and inequality.”
Each of the synth’s voices is made up of a VCO with sweepable waveshape, a sub-oscillator and a noise generator, along with two envelopes and an LFO. There are also two filters per voice: a 24dB/octave low-pass resonant filter and a 6dB/octave high-pass filter.
Nymphes features a global LFO, 96 presets – with 49 that are factory set – and seven active chords that users can edit, modulate and store into each preset. Nymphes is powered by USB and has a MIDI port, mono output and headphone output.
The synth wraps those features up in a compact metal enclosure, which looks small enough to fit into a backpack.
