Supernova Sounds

Novation releases free Supernova SoundPack for MiniNova and UltraNova      23/04/13

Novation believes that their Supernova set the standard for virtual analogue synthesisers when it was released in 1998. They say that, with its comprehensive modelling of traditional analogue subtractive synthesis, uniquely powerful multi-effects engine and expressive filter, the rack-mount Supernova and its successor, Supernova II, were the most powerful synths of their time – class leaders, still revered today.

Sound designer Phil McDonald created the iconic sounds of the Supernova that changed the sound of dance music at the turn of the Millennium, powering classics by Orbital, ATB, Jean Michel Jarre and A Guy Called Gerald, plus many more. Now, with the massive revival of interest in the sounds and music of the period, Novation has announced the release of two new SoundPacks for the MiniNova and UltraNova, containing sounds from the original Supernova sound banks, by the original sound designer.
The Supernova SoundPacks give you the original classic sounds of the turn of the century – and they're absolutely free.

The first of the two SoundPacks, with 64 sounds, is available to download now as part of Novation's 21st Anniversary celebrations, with the second pack available later in the year.

There's video above shows MiniNova and UltraNova users how to install the SoundPack.

To install the SoundPacks, you'll need the free MiniNova or UltraNova Librarian applications. Use them to import and store new patches and the other SoundPacks for both synths, including the Chuckie, Dino Soldo and 2-volume Daniel Fisher SoundPacks.

A spokesperson had this to say, "Recapture the classic sounds of the Millennium, give your MiniNova or UltraNova a Supernova supercharge and make these sounds your own, with these classic original Phil McDonald sounds, absolutely free of charge."
