Novation Peak - Polyphonic Synthesiser

The Novation Peak Polyphonic synth is an Eight- voice synthesiser has a warm sounding tone but with filthy overdrive, combining 3 New Oxford oscillators for each voice. The synth has a resonant multi-mode analogue filter for each voice, and three distortion points in an analogue signal chain.

Novation Peak Features

Two ways to create waveforms
Analogue-sounding NCOs (Numerically-Controlled Oscillators) and 17 digital wavetables.

A colossal amount of distortion
Three distortion points for each voice – pre-filter, post-filter and global – in an analogue signal chain.

Control expression
Peak is capable of receiving polyphonic aftertouch, which puts expression right at your fingertips.

Cross-modulate oscillators
The three New Oxford Oscillators for each voice can become a linear FM source using either the analogue-sounding NCOs (Numerically-Controlled Oscillators) or digital wavetables. They are also able to cross-modulate in a recursive loop.

Huge modulation system
16-slot modulation matrix and 16 direct assignments controlled from the front panel, cleverly arranged for intuitive patch design and sound editing. Three ADSR envelopes and two LFOs for each voice.

Easily switch modulations
Two animate buttons give live performers instant one-touch transformation of patches.

Mind-blowing sounds on-board
Reverb, delay and chorus at your disposal, and there’s also an arpeggiator.

Connect to hardware and software
Connect and sync to your music software and MIDI-compatible hardware. CV modulation input used to slot together modular systems.

Store unlimited sounds
