We are so honoured that Nyx V2 was voted as the Best Hardware product of 2019 by the readers of Musictech
A completely unique synth walks away with one of our biggest prizes this year. The Dreadbox Nyx V2 is the latest product from the Greek company who have been making striking looking gear for the last few years, not least of which was the original Nyx, which was a masterfully made ambient-producer’s delight. Version 2 takes its cues from Dreadbox’s Erebus 3 and has a raft of connectivity and patching options, with 30 ins and outs in total. It’s the kind of synth you could lose yourself in, with an incredible long reverb.
In our review we said “There’s no space to cover all the patching options, but here you can maintain this experimentation but also bring in more control and calm it down. You’ll have to work to discover all its nuances, but as they’re revealed, you’ll discover a beast of a synth. A god, even. Nyx V2 packs a lot of punch (and reverb!)”
