Product Description

UltraNova is a 'Nova' series analogue-modeling synthesizer with a powerful effects processor. It is a single-part synth taking the legendary Supernova II synth engine as a starting point and packing it with the latest technology. It now has brand new features including wavetable synthesis, even more powerful filters, a software editor and a revolutionary new touch-sense performance mode.

The 'Nova' family was born in 1998 with the Supernova, which was the first of a series of powerful synthesizers. These quickly became industry standard 'big-synths' which are still used by countless artists and sound designers.

UltraNova is the latest addition to the family bringing the range right up to date with a host of new features and a more affordable price tag.

Novation UltraNova Synthesizer Features

  • Brand new Nova-series synth engine based on Supernova II
  • Touch-sense controls enable totally new sound-shaping and performance
  • Totally gig-able with 37 full sized keys, a vocoder, and loads of controls
  • Software plug-in editor and Patch Librarian for full visual editing
  • Built-in 2 in 4 out USB audio interface and it can be bus powered
  • Includes Dynamic Gooseneck Microphone
Software Editor
UltraNova has a powerful software editor that enables visual editing of all parameters. It can be used within DAWs as a plug-in editor.

Patch Librarian
UltraNova also ships with a patch librarian that can be hosted on Mac or PC. This enables the user to save an unlimited number patches to the host computer and organize them into folders. Each of the 300 patches that ship with UltraNova have been tagged to make it easy to search by category and genre from the hardware synth or the software patch librarian.

UltraNova has a 12 band vocoder and ships with a dynamic gooseneck microphone. In addition to putting your voice through the vocoder (via the microphone) you can also process other sounds by putting instruments - or pretty much anything - into UltraNova's stereo line inputs on the back panel.

Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
comes with a printed manual which is nice. automap makes it easy to sync up with your favorite DAW or plugin.
How is the tone?
dark and rich like expensive coffee.
Was this item an overall good value?
seems costly at first but once you realize it's versatility and depth that goes out the window. I mean a synth with fresh modifiable sounds with a built in audio interface w/ midi?...what else could you want?...well a shoe box full of twenties would be nice.
