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.
Novation builds upon past successes. They followed their classic analog monosynth, the Bass Station, with the enhanced Bass Station II. The fat, angry low-end warmth of the Bass Station II comes from two tunable oscillators, a sub oscillator, and noise or ring modulators. Additionally, two alternate filter styles allow for even more creative possibilities. Novation loaded the Bass Station II with tons of controls to encourage fun experimentation, yet the layout is clear, fluid, and easy to use. This award-winning synth is fully class compliant and has various I/O options, so you can use it however you want.
The Launch Key series is synonymous with several different setups, partly because of the range of sizes offered and pure versatility of control options. These MIDI keyboard controllers are designed to pair seamlessly with Ableton Live to take full control of everything the DAW has to offer. Scale modes, Chord modes, and a powerful arpeggiator can extend your musical capabilities, enabling you to create in new ways. Available in multiple key variants, it’s easier than ever to pick the size that suits your setup. The Launch Key controller can be used alone or with a computer and includes plenty of software to get you quickly off the ground.
The Launchpad has been a staple controller in a wide variety of setups, from DJs and producers to bands and solo artists. Its compact size and simple layout make it straightforward to create music. In fact, the Launchpad is the controller that inspired the grid format that later became synonymous with electronic music. Although it’s ideal for live performances, it’s also a solid production tool for auditioning and arranging music in the studio. They’re all bus-powered via USB and class compliant, so you can just plug them in and start playing.
Novation grooveboxes are a great companion for performers, DJs, and producers. The Circuit and Circuit Monostation offer interesting possibilities rhythmically and sonically. These grooveboxes allow you to create a wild variance of musical phrases for performance or production. It can be the backdrop of any track or the lead instrument. As far as programming goes, there’s a lot to unpack. The industry at large has praised Novation for creating grooveboxes that serve as the perfect addition to just about any setup. The only thing you really need is adventurous creativity.
Musicians and producers alike adore Novation. All Novation controllers, synths, and grooveboxes are easy, versatile tools aimed at inspiring creativity, so you can focus less on the technicalities and more on the music.
