Novation Mininova Synthesizer, Novation Synth

The Novation MiniNova, the latest in the ‘nova’ range of synths, is a compact, super-cool studio and live synth with the same incredibly powerful sound engine and synth effects as the Novation UltraNova, making it capable of creating dirty-fat bass synth sounds, soaring leads, lush pads and vintage synth sounds. It comes in a 37 mini-key form, with a USB port and MIDI i/o so you can hook it up to your laptop and control your music software, or connect it to another keyboard or sound module.

The MiniNova features 256 incredible onboard sounds, as well as space to save another 128 of your own – all of which you can tweak with five knobs, or totally warp with eight 'animate' buttons. You can quickly search for sounds by selecting the style of music you're making, or the type of sound you're after.

The MiniNova comes with a free software Patch Librarian so you can store as many sounds as you want on your computer. If 256 is not enough, there are numerous soundpacks for MiniNova assembled by renowned artists and sound designers, available to be downloaded free from:

The MiniNova takes vocal effects one-step further. As well as a classic vocoder, it has VocalTune™, so you can talk into the mic and play the tune you want your voice to follow on the keyboard, recreating those classic hip hop/urban vocal effects. You can also run your voice through MiniNova's effects engine, adding reverb, distortion, chorus/phase, gator compression or EQ. There is also an input into which you can plug any other instrument and apply the same effects.

MiniNova has 14 conventional waveforms to choose from, 36 wavetables and 20 digital waveforms. Each of the 3 oscillators have density/detune for fattening up sounds, virtual sync and 'hardness' - which acts as an additional lowpass filter. There are 14 filter types

(and you can run 2 simultaneously), 6 envelope generators, 3 LFOs and 20 modulation slots where you can link modules of the synth engine together to shape sound. It also has up to 18 voices with as many as five synth effects on each sound.

The 'Perform' section enables you to access the synth and effects engines by switching between 6 positions to assign 4 knobs, giving you instant access to 24 sound-bending parameters.

We've also created The MiniNova Editor, which works as a plug-in within your DAW or music software. This software application gives you visual access to the synth engine, making it easier to see what you’re doing whilst editing.

You can fully edit MiniNova using the hardware, but it can be a bit overwhelming. That's why we've created the MiniNova Editor: software that gives you visual access to your synth engine within your music software or DAW, to make it much easier to see what you're doing.

Music making is all about the journey, and we’re always looking for new ways to inspire you along the way. That’s why we’ve created the Sound Collective. Receive free versions of the most innovative software instruments and creative FX from developers we admire, as well as discounts to help you make the most of third-party software, exclusive to Novation customers. All you have to do is register your Novation gear, and one offer will be featured in your Novation account every couple of months.
