i have got some big nova trouble. i downloaded the zip file:

"Supernova 3.1 Programs bank C & D for Nova. ( These overwrite factories in banks A & B! ) as .zip file for PC"

from novation website. i loaded my sequenser with "novaprogc&d.mid" wich were the soundbanks. i restarded my nova holding down mute button til it said: "waiting for new os". i hit play in sequenser but the text "waiting for new os" still were there so i shut it down when nothing happened.

i restarted and noticed that i couldn change my performance or program sounds. it stayed on one sound all the time wven if i went thru the sounds. where have all my sounds gone?

and after that i noticed that it didnt recieve midi from my controller synth cs2x.

what has happened!?? was it because i shut it down when it sayed "waiting for new os"??

how can i solve this problem?

it worked fine before i did this.

please help me

regards toomas

With OS4 this synth has become a real killer among the VA family! Definitely the best deal out there for those on a budget.

Listen to the nova in action at this URL:

A huge synth in a small casing, nice sounds that are very usefull. very good in synthi/vcs3 fx immitations. If you can get it second hand for a nice price, you should buy it

It's a wonderful keyboard. you can design the sound and change it a lot with the 3 osc and the 2 lfo witch are very good Also there are 5 assignale effects that can be assign to anyone of the six parts in other way. got to here it to belive how good this synth sounds.

About a year and a half ago, i reviewed this machine and dismissed it as plastic and thin, not a good quality VA synth. Since then, I have purchased a Nova, and installed OS4 on it. I now have nothing but great remarks about it. The sound is warm and huge, much warmer than any other VA out there IMHO. Does great trance sounds like nobody's business. The Distortion may have been weak in the last OS, but in OS4, the sound gets very very dirty and grungy with the slightest turn of the effects knob. I'll agree the reverb is pretty ho-hum,along with the phaser, but the rest of the effects are great. The Chorus, EQ/Distort, and delay are superb. The new Supersaw option is brilliant. nothing beats a 3 osc double saw waveform lead. Detune that, and you'll choke on the fat. I really really dig the new filter types, along with everything else the new OS brings. before OS4, im not sure i would have considered the Nova, but with the new OS, its a brand new synth practically. Id like to keep this as long as possible, cos it works great. Even the blue LED screen is refreshing after seeing a whole slew of green and yellow LEDs..
