Novation has just surprised us with a cheeky announcement - a new hybrid analog/digital synth called Peak! The Novation Peak is an eight-voice desktop polyphonic synthesizer which was designed by the man behind Bass Station, Supernova, OSCar and many other legendary synths.
So, where does the Peak stand in amongst other hybrid synths? Well, the thing that has everybody talking is the Oxford Oscillators. Most digital oscillators have a sample rate limitation of 44.1kHz, Peak has a sample rate of 24Mhz which is the resolution that you would expect in a real analog wave shape! Therefore, Peak’s oscillators sound completely analog and are known as being high-quality NCOs (Numerically-Controlled Oscillators), as opposed to VCOs.
The Peak also boasts a resonant multi-mode analog filter for each voice, three distortion points in an analog signal chain, and allows for 17 digital wavetables!
