Novation is celebrating its heritage with a short film that explores Novation past, present, and future, along with a completely free sample pack comprising over 1GB of loops, single hits, multi sampled patches, and drum kits from its unforgettable and modern classic synths.
All-Star Judged Competition
In addition, Novation are offering three people the chance to win their choice of Bass Station II, UltraNova, or MiniNova – their award winning current lineup of synthesisers – in a make-a-track competition with an all-star judging panel including Paul Hartnoll (Orbital), Liam Howe (Lana Del Rey, Sneaker Pimps), Eats Everything, and Timo Maas in a competition running from the 4th of February to the 4th of March 2014.
Novation Heritage Documentary
Novation co-founder Ian Jannoway, legendary synth designer Chris Huggett, Gus Unger-Hamilton of Alt-J, Sneaker Pimps and Lana Del Rey producer Liam Howe, and product manager Matt Derbyshire all feature in a very special short film that charts the rise of Novation from humble beginnings to a company whose musical innovations support a user base that includes – amongst many others – Orbital, M4SONIC, Rudimental, T.E.E.D, Lunice, Alt-J, Teddy Riley, and Jimmy Mac – keyboardist for international sensation Lorde.
Supernova II, K Station, Bass Station, Drum Station, Bass Station II and Ultranova are all represented in the heritage sample pack, and Novation are launching a month long competition with an all-star judging panel including Paul Hartnoll (Orbital), Liam Howe (Lana Del Rey, Sneaker Pimps), Eats Everything, and Timo Maas to create a track using the pack – with three winners each winning their choice of either Ultranova, Mininova, or Bass Station II. The competition runs from 4th of February 2014 to 4th of March 2014.
