Soundpacks and templates for legacy Novation synths: (Xio, X-Station etc)
Vintage Snare drum
Organ sound with X gator and heavy on the fx.
osc 1 and 2 are a sine and osc 3 is a square/pulse. control LFO wobble with lfo 2 and filter freq and resonance with the X/Y pad.
3 saw Reese bass
3 osc on sine.
Put the lfo speed on the y of the x/y pad.
I've put the octave of my keyboard to -1 or -2 for this sound but on the higher octaves it also sounds crazy!
Play chords with this arp, gives a nice sound
I´ve used the Low pass filter, but this pad is also cool when you use the High pass filter.
nice to play chords and use the x-y pad. Arp speed is 80 bpm.
I've put lfo2 rate on the Y and filter res on th X of the pad.
try the X-gator and the arp.
Lightfinger's 100 Patches!
Example patch to show that the UltraNova is capable of keyboard split / multitimbral sounds. I didn't put much hart to make a good sound, it's only to give you the idea. There are plenty of free resources to use on the UltraNova to enhance the sound.
To get started all you need is 2 envelopes, 2 oscillators and 2 modulation slots, one for each part of the keyboard split. The rest can be used as you wish. You can even have one filter for the lower part and one for the upper part (using "parallel 2" routing)
Anyway, it's only a basic sound and it's configurability is limited. After all you only get half of the UltraNovas capabilities per part.
Just A Little Test i did Playing around with the Ultranova Wave table
This little proof has the only purpose to explore the different sounds of each wave table, applying a triangle LFO to the value of the wave table index, without any interpolation. The wave table itself has to be changed manually as wave shape parameter cannot be modified by an LFO (as far as I know). To hear or visualise the rough waves by an oscillograph, no effect, no filter, no ADSR has been added.
Add fizz with MW
This is a collection of 20 patches I created for the Novation Ultranova synthesizer. It is an ecclectic mix of sounds - pads, leads, crazy sfx and rhythmic stuff. I took time to program velocity, aftertouch, mod wheel, and at least 4 knobs of "Tweak" for
each one. I hope you enjoy them!
THE FAMOUS TRANSFORMER SOUND (SPEED CONTROLLED BY MODWHEEL!!!!!!)
just a bassy odd patch with nice modulation settings. try out the touch and the mod wheel will bring the lfo in
MODELED AFTER OZRIC TENTACLES - YUM YUM TREE SOUND!!

MODWHEEL CHANGES PITCH DIRECTION!!!!
Modeled after the default sound of animoog for the ipad!!!! ENJOY!!!!
use after touch and mod wheel to freak the lfo on the filter. touch controls provide the Stank on it!
Works well as a lead or a bass just use big knob filter to cutoff to use as bass. Touch controls initiate some moderately interesting modulations.
Simply enough basic "keys" patch. Slightly detuned to give it a dirtier sound. Lends an eerie vibe to it.
My first additive creation with UltraNova consisting of a sawtooth, a square, and a pulsewidth wave. Creates a "pulsing" sort of sound. Go figure, heh. Pretty raw with no modulations added, only a mild phase effect.
Same patch as the original, only with a delay effect and some modulations added to the touch controls. Use the mod wheel when utilizing these.
A subtle pad that turns dyanmic with after touch and modwheel movements. Try holding touch 1 and applying after-touch.
A clarinet type of jazzy solo with minimal tweaks required. Slight portament and V-sync on mod wheel so be very careful in upper octaves, try altering to lower during a solo then rolling up on mod wheel to about half-way
A jazzy mono EP tone with delay, press after-touch to add a harsh diode distortion and cut through the mix. Two ep_bell osc and one triangle makes it work well in both upper and lower octaves. Touch 3 and 4 add additional distortions to create a guitar-type lead. Mod wheel is osc2 vsync and osc1 pitch creates strange dissonance that still retains root note when rolled fully open. solo with mod wheel fully open or closed, middle ground for effects.
play very short staccato for a pad type marimba tone. hold notes for a penetrating triple saw osc's that drift through the delay for the following moments. After touch only works with mod wheel fully open. Touch 4 is a ton of fun when emphasizing the saw waves with after touch. Why 3 saw osc with no detuning? the pitch wheel has a different influence on each
