    Novation Peak 8 Voice Hybrid Analogue/Digital Polyphonic Synthesiser

    Notify me when this product is available:

    The Novation Peak is an eight-voice desktop polyphonic synthesizer designed by the man behind Bass Station, Supernova, OSCar and many other legendary synths.  With three New Oxford Oscillators for each voice, a resonant multi-mode analogue filter for each voice, and three distortion points in an analogue signal chain, the Novation Peak is a powerful sound-shaping tool indeed! Peak’s oscillators sound completely analogue by being high-quality NCOs (Numerically-Controlled Oscillators), but Peak also has the flexibility of the digital domain with 17 digital wavetables.

      • Novation Peak Features:

        Build and refine new sounds from scratch

        Broaden out your electronic music, draw in new influences and take artistic risks. The modulation system puts the most frequently used assignments right at your fingertips in the main controls. More elaborate movements and secondary ‘via’ assignments are made just a few menu button presses away.

        Connect to just about anything

        You can plug Peak into your Mac or PC via USB and start playing. It also has MIDI I/O on five-pin DIN ports, so you can connect your other MIDI gear. Oh, and did we mention it connects to modular systems via a CV modulation input?

        Key Features:

        Two ways to create waveforms

        Analogue-sounding NCOs (Numerically-Controlled Oscillators) and 17 digital wavetables.

        A colossal amount of distortion

        Three distortion points for each voice – pre-filter, post-filter and global – in an analogue signal chain.

        Control expression

        Peak is capable of receiving polyphonic aftertouch, which puts expression right at your fingertips.

        Cross-modulate oscillators

        The three New Oxford Oscillators for each voice can become a linear FM source using either the analogue-sounding NCOs (Numerically-Controlled Oscillators) or digital wavetables. They are also able to cross-modulate in a recursive loop.

        Huge modulation system

        16-slot modulation matrix and 16 direct assignments controlled from the front panel, cleverly arranged for intuitive patch design and sound editing. Three ADSR envelopes and two LFOs for each voice.

        Easily switch modulations

        Two animate buttons give live performers instant one-touch transformation of patches.

        Mind-blowing sounds on-board

        Reverb, delay and chorus at your disposal, and there’s also an arpeggiator.

        Connect to hardware and software

        Connect and sync to your music software and MIDI-compatible hardware. CV modulation input used to slot together modular systems.

        Store unlimited sounds
