I downloaded OS4 and I must say I finally can get the sounds I want. Before, I used to sample sounds and layer them in my sampler which eats the polyphony away. The Unison mode is really stunning and it's obvious that, although it offers 3 osc's, the original Nova was lacking this feature. Also, the LPF-LPF-filter sounds really huge. This makes the Nova capable of creating speaker-threatening sweeps. Still one remark, what about future reverb improvements? The reverb still sounds so thin.

With OS 4.0, this synth kicks the ass of the Virus/Nordleads and any other module in this priceclass! 9 extra filtertypes! 4 extra voices and other improvements... Novation deserves a well-earned compliment for doing this kind of thing...I'd like to see Roland updating their OS's with extra features !!

Wow! I just read about and downloaded OS4 for the Nova. Adding 4 more voices to make 16 total really brings this synth up to a whole new level. (I wonder why they didn't do this sooner?)

With this and the new double sawtooth function, this thing edges out the Virus as my favorite virtual analog toy (I have both a Nova and a Virus b).

The new standards of comparison will no longer be based on synth power (because both units inherently are minicomputers with VA software under their hoods that can be upgraded indefinitely if the manufacturers feel like it) but based upon ease of use and the Nova wins here.

OK now I have OS4 I take that back. This is now a huge and distinctly kick-ass synth. I don't know what they did but it sounds so much more in your face. The distortion rips and the Unison mode churns out massive dutch trance leads with ease.

It does the Virus thing perfectly and costs a fair bitless

I own a nova module two months now and have to say that so far even with 2-3 hours each day spent on working with it and trying to master its sonic features i have only managed to scratch its blue surface.It's an amazing synth that's capable of some stunning sounds and offers its pro features through one of the most intuitive interfaces i've ever seen.I spent a whole week just tweaking the presets but it was when i started creatin' my own sounds from scratch that i realised what this beast can do.Having 3 dcos three powerful filters 6 awesome arps per part 7 effects with unique settings for each part one hell of a modmatrix 6 outs and two ins under your control gives you a good excuse for not picking up the phone and showing up late for work. I read somewhere that the 'special' buttons on the oscs and filter section where going to be of no use know that novation II series came out.Who believes that should check out the new os4 which amongst many others features the double sawtooth waveform 9!!! new filter types 16 note poly and plenty more .I just upgraded my nova and it feels like i have i just bought a new synth!
