Cre8Audio NiftyKEYZ Keyboard Eurorack Case In-Depth Review

In his latest Sonic Lab review, Sonic State’s Nick Batt takes an in-depth look at the new Cre8Audio NiftyKeyZ keyboard Eurorack case.

NiftyKEYZ combines a full-sized 49-key synth-action MIDI controller keyboard with 112hp of space for Eurorack modules, so you can house all-in-one synths like the Moog Mother-32 and use them as keyboards, or create a custom keyboard-controlled modular rig.

“This is actually pretty cool for setting up performance patches and, not withstanding the issues around tuning and dedicated voice control (Osc, VCF, VCA, Envelope), allows for some really complex setups to be created,” says Batt.
