The Novation MiniNova is a compact, super-cool studio and live synth. With the same sound engine as its big brother, Novation UltraNova. Featuring 256 incredible onboard sounds that you can tweak with five knobs, or totally warp with eight ‘animate’ buttons. Plus, up to 18 voices with as many as five synth effects on each sound.
Along with the onboard VocalTune effect. The MiniNova features a classic vocoder, so you can recreate iconic vocal sounds from hip hop, urban and electronic music. Furthermore, an enormously powerful sound engine and synth effects, unheard of in a micro synth.
There are 14 conventional waveforms to choose from (square, sine, sawtooth, pulse, triangle and combinations). Plus 36 wavetables and 20 digital waveforms. Each of the 3 oscillators also have density/detune features for fattening up sounds, virtual sync and ‘hardness’ – which acts as an additional lowpass filter. Additionally, there are 14 filter types (and you can run 2 simultaneously), 6 envelope generators, 3 LFOs and 20 modulation slots where you can link modules of the synth engine together to shape sound. MiniNova can add up to 5 effects to each sound including distortion, reverb, chorus/phase, delay, compressor, EQ and Novation’s unique gator effect.
Above all, a fantastic synth for your studio and also live performances.
