Ahead of Superbooth24, Melbourne Instruments have teased the Delia. It showed up on the company’s Instagram Stories with a little audio and text saying it would be at Superbooth Berlin.

While there’s no real information at this time, the smart money is on Delia being a keyboard version of Nina (which also appears in the rear of the video). Nina, as you may know, is the desktop synth with the motorized knobs. It wowed us at NAMM in 2022 – and now Delia looks to do the same at Superbooth later this month.

What’s Different From Nina?

Nina is a 12-voice hybrid polysynth with two analogue oscillators and a wavetable one. It’s mostly famous for its proprietary, motorized knobs, which are based on drone technology

Looking at the photo of Delia (named after Delia Derbyshire of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, perhaps?), we can see that there are fewer potentiometers than on Nina. It could be that Melbourne Instruments has reduced the amount of hands-on control to bring down the price. Nina is not cheap and adding a four-octave keyboard and larger chassis would certainly increase costs. It’s possible there could be some menu diving involved.

Will It Have Polyphonic Aftertouch?

Nina supports MPE. Adding a keybed implies that Delia could feature polyphonic aftertouch. Considering that Nina is about as famous for its rich sound as it is for having spinning knobs, MPE would be a cool thing to have.

Unfortunately, there are more questions than answers right now. Hopefully, all will be revealed at Superbooth24 on May 16. We’ll have boots on the ground there so come back for updates. I for one can’t wait to hear how Delia sounds.
