Novation Peak Eight Voice Polyphonic Analogue/Digital Hybrid Synthesizer
The Novation Peak is a ground breaking synthesizer that perfect combines the power and precision of digital processors together with analogue feel and sound that we all love. The result is a synthesizer like no other! Intuitive, versatile, and powerful. At its core peak is an eight-voice polyphonic synth, warm and rich with filthy, biting overdrive. Built into a desktop style housing and with three New Oxford Oscillators for each voice. And has a resonant multi-mode analogue filter for each voice, and three distortion points in an analogue signal chain.
Peak’s design consultant was none other than Chris Huggett, the man behind Bass Station, Supernova, OSCar and many more legendary synths. Peak has its origin in the Bass Station II analogue monosynth, and Peak’s oscillators sound completely analogue by being high-quality NCOs (Numerically-Controlled Oscillators), but gain the flexibility of the digital domain with 17 digital wavetables.
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.
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?
