The Novation UltraNova is Novation’s most ambitious synthesizer to date, enhancing their legendary SuperNova analog-modeling engine to vastly increase its sonic range and vocabulary. The result is an instrument geared up to create sounds unmatched by any other in its class.
The UltraNova Engine
At the core of UltraNova’s synthesis engine are three insanely powerful oscillators, each capable of outputting both classic analogue waveforms and cutting-edge wavetables, for an enormous and diverse palette of raw signals. Noise and ring modulation are on tap, too, for further enriching of the oscillators, and with up to 18 voices of polyphony, even the most complex lines and chords are perfectly playable.
A synth lives or dies by its filters, and UltraNova’s are up there with the best you’ve ever heard. There are two onboard, both of them resonant, routable and offering low-pass, high-pass and band-pass modes at 6, 12, 18 and 24dB/octave.
The modulation system is equally impressive, comprising 6 Envelopes, 3 LFOs and a 20-slot modulation matrix for near-unlimited programming potential.
The Sound Designer's Dream
UltraNova gives you intuitive hands-on control over every aspect of the synth engine for deep, complex patch editing. Sculpt your sounds with the filters, LFOs and envelopes, then process and polish them to perfection with the five-way multi-FX processor.
The modulation matrix lets you connect each of UltraNova’s many mod sources to whatever target parameters you like, making almost any sound you can imagine a reality. But if sound design isn't your thing, don’t worry – Novation regularly release free soundpack updates, containing loads of inspirational new patches.
Touch ’n’ Tweak
Far more than just static presets, each of UltraNova's patches includes up to eight immediately adjustable parameters for subtle tweaking or warping beyond recognition using the touch-sensitive encoders. Twist to adjust the brightness or dial in some grit, or touch to trigger subtle movement or transform a sound into something completely different.
Record and Vocoder
As if being one of the finest synths ever made wasn’t enough, UltraNova also features a built-in audio interface, for effortless capture of its output in your DAW. Simply connect it to your Mac or PC with a USB cable (which also supplies power and MIDI I/O) and hit record! And that’s not all: there’s a 12-band vocoder in there as well, for robotizing your voice and processing it with UltraNova’s filters and effects via the included gooseneck mic.
