It features Novation's award-winning AnalogueSound Modeling Technology to faithfully recreate the fluid sound of vintage analog equipment. 3 independent oscillators with variable noise source and 2 ring modulators per voice, combined with its 12-voice polyphony (boostable to 16 with free internet download), means that there are 36 oscillators, 24 ring modulators, and 12 noise sources available simultaneously. All can be combined in the Nova's mixer section to create fat, complex timbres. It offers 6-part multitimbrality; a 12, 18, 24dB-per-octave resonant filter configurable in low pass, high pass, and band pass modes, and with overdrive control; 42 simultaneous effects. Up to 6 arpeggiators can function simultaneously with 384 poly, mono, and user patterns. A 40-band vocoder can run simultaneously with the full synth engine with no loss of polyphony. A comprehensive modulation matrix offers 130 possible routings. 2 audio inputs allow signals to be routed through the synth engine (filters), effects, or both. They feature 20-bit A/D conversion, and are sensitivity selectable among mic, guitar, -10dB, and +4dB. 6 assignable polyphonic outputs each have 128 times oversampling Delta Sigma DACs.
Synthesis System Analogue Sound Modelling.
Polyphony 16 Voices.
Sound Sources per Voice
3 Oscillators, 2 Ring Modulators and a Noise Generator. Up to 6 Oscillators can be generated with no loss in polyphony when the special Double Saw waveform is used.
Comprehensive Modulation Matrix with 130 possible routings.
6 part Multitimbral.
12, 18 and 24 dB per octave Resonant filter configurable in Low Pass, High Pass and Band Pass modes, plus 9 Dual/Split filter types with modulatable frequency separation. All filters also feature an overdrive control, while Filter Bypass mode allows noise to be filtered independently – ideal for the creation of drum sounds.
2 LFOs capable of oscillating at Audio rates.
Distortion, Comb Filter, EQ, Reverb, Chorus/Flanger/Phaser/Rotary Speaker, Delay and Panning effects for each Program.
Total number of Effects
42 Effects available simultaneously. 7 Effects for each of the 6 Parts of a Performance. Yes you can have a different Reverb on each part, a different Delay on each part, a different Chorus etc.
40 Band Vocoder that can run simultaneously with the Full Synth Engine (no reduction of polyphony etc).
Number of Outputs
6 assignable polyphonic outputs with 128 x Oversampling Delta Sigma DACs for each output. Stereo effects can be routed through a single channel without compromising quality, releasing more outputs.
Number of Inputs
2 Audio Inputs. Signals can be routed through the Synth Engine (Filters), Effects or both. 20 bit ADCs. Input Sensitivity Selectable between Microphone, Guitar, - 10dB and +4dB Levels. Metering PPM Metering with Variable Trim & 40 Band Spectrum Analyser on the Display.
Number of Programs
256 Programs in 2 banks.
Number of Performances
Built in Arpeggiator with 384 Preset Polyphonic, Preset Monophonic and User Programmable Polyphonic and Monophonic Patterns. 6 Arpeggiators are available simultaneously in Performance mode.
All knobs, switches and Parameters transmit MIDI Controllers and NRPNs. Knob pick-up eliminates unexpected surges or changes when switching between Programs.
Flash upgradable operating system via MIDI, free as a MIDI file on our Web Site.
Multi Voltage built in power supply.
In/Out/Thru. Program change and Controller transmit options can be disabled, and the Nova with OS4 offers forward compatibility with Novation’s Supernova II series synths - sysex dumps from the Supernova II can be accommodated.
6U Rackmount (Rack Kit Included) H63mm (including knobs) D193mm W383mm.
