Novation tirelessly succeeds at building some of the greatest modern synthesizers. Many synth designers are out there developing new gear, but only a select few are truly innovative. Novation stands among them. Artists and producers turn to Novation for adding unshakeable sound to records; a short list includes Radiohead, Massive Attack, Orbital, Nine Inch Nails, Giorgio Moroder, Jean-Michel Jarre, Hudson Mohawke, alt-J, and Arca.
Novation’s flagship two-part, 16-voice, 61-key polyphonic synthesizer takes the crown for the best sound in their entire lineage of synths. At the heart of this formidable beast, digital New Oxford oscillators feed true analog effect professors (filters, distortion, VCAs). The oscillators themselves belong to a multi-timbral engine of combinable patches. It opens up an infinite plane of sculptable sound. Paired with the Wavetable Editor, you get the freedom to modify wave shapes and access a library of alternate sounds, including samples from the NASA library.
