I love the novation sound, and the addition of wavetables is seriously tempting. If they'd make a 5-octave multitimbral version with more controls, I'd be unable to resist. Ultranova ProX?

well, I know it's childish, but I find it ugly

I'm glad Novation is finally creating synths again. But that video was so boring. Not very inspiring.

They seem to want to show off the touch-sensitive knobs, but they're really no different than momentary switches, no? Useful live, maybe, but probably a hassle in the studio.

Here's hoping we get a Sonic State review of this machine before too long.

Addendum: the videos on the Novation site are much, much better for info, etc.

For someone who likes building large evolving textures and pads, I found it saddening that UltraNova is one-part only... other than that I think high of this synth. The editor software looks very nice.

I got excited when I heard the news because when I was still in high school I wanted a Novation Nova so badly but didn't have the money. Anyways, I saw the picture of this synth and I have to say.... it's kinda ugly. It's put me off wanting it and instead I decided to buy a second hand Nova instead.

Finally I'll have my synth of (high school) dreams. Sorry, Novation. You just don't have it anymore.

First: Its ugly

Second, its too reminescent of the miniAK

Third: Monotimbral? it should be at least bi timbral :(

Granted if they make it at the same price as their controlleres, it would be killer budget-synth... but sill nothing compared to Tetra.

I suspect that this video was a bad idea. It doesn't show the capability of the machine, it talks about it.

Worst promo video ever.
