Synths |

Powerful synth sound with a deep history

Nobody does synthesisers like we do. That's why everybody has used them.

Radiohead, Massive Attack, Orbital, Nine Inch Nails, Giorgio Moroder, Jean-Michel Jarre, Hudson Mohawk, alt-J and Arca.

That's just a handful of the artists who have used Novation synths. After all, we're the guys behind Bass Station and Supernova. Our design consultant is none other than Chris Huggett, the man who designed OSCar and WASP.

Synth heritage doesn't come richer than ours. Add to that our 23 years of innovation and expertise, and you've got the modern Novation synth range.

Check it out.

You tend to think 'I couldn't possibly compete with the big company stuff', but maybe you can and it's actually quite satisfying to have a piece of the market and have people say 'I prefer this, I like what you've done here'.

...Vocoders are loads of fun, and the MiniNova's really flexible in what it can do.
