Novation Summit Polyphonic Synthesiser
The Summit is Novation’s flagship two-part 16-voice 61-key polyphonic synthesiser. Digital New Oxford Oscillators offer subtractive, FM and wavetable synthesis, and feed into genuine analogue dual filters, distortion and VCAs. The Summit’s multitimbral engine enables you to merge and combine two complete and independent patches, while up to 16 simultaneous voice deliver enough harmonic depth for even the richest of pads.
Novations best sounding synth they’ve ever made
The Summit doubles the power of Peak’s digital New Oxford Oscillators up to 16 voices and two parts while adding a wealth of new features and a premium quality 5 octave keyboard. The Novation Summit gives those serious producers and performers everything they will need to design and play stunning basses, leads, arps, pads, effects and more.
Tactile Sound Design
Summit builds o Peak’s architecture and workflows while taking it to new heights, with a swathe of extra front panel controls for hands on work of FM, effects, LFOs and more.
Analogue where it matters
The Summit features a true stereo analogue signal path that comprises dual analogue multimode filters, analogue VCAs and three stages of analogue distortion – pre- and post-filter, and post-VCA. The Summit holds roots in the legendary OSCar, via Bass Station II making Summit’s analogue credentials rather impressive.
The Wavetable Editor unleashes the power of the wavetable oscillators. It features drawing tools and a Live Edit mode, so you can draw your own oscillator shapes and preview them in real time. Audio import lets you load in your own audio to be used as the oscillator waveform. Included is a curated selection of space-themed audio from the NASA sound library, plus exclusive content from production giants Noisia.
Audio in and auxiliary audio out
Hook up external instruments for processing with Summit’s onboard effects, while using it as a synth at the same time.
Summit’s dual filter is switchable between six paired combinations of low-pass, high-pass and band-pass modes at 12dB/octave, or any single mode at 24dB/octave, for a broad range of sonic possibilities.
Onboard reverb, chorus and delay effects are hosted on the FPGA. They’re also controlled directly from the front panel, and available as modulation targets in the dedicated FX Mod Matrix.
Ableton Live Lite is included
