I have had the Novation Nova for about 3-4 months now and I'll say it is a really freakin badass synth! 7 effects/part, Vocoder, 2 inputs...

I think you also should get one if you like to make ur own sound, ie twist, turn, and push buttons. The presets are not good but not bad either. Some are useful, some are not. Piont is that you should like to elaborate with the sounds, which the Nova really welcomes you to. Alots of buttons, and alots of twisters, for your delight!!

Right now I am using my nova as a synth ( of course ) AND as a multieffect processor. Let me explain:

2 aux send from my mixer goes to the 2 inputs of the Nova. Then I have set up 2 programs, at part 5 and 6 to work as a delay and a reverb. Simple as a pie!...not really, but once you understand it...

As you can see this baby has some real routing powers. I have tried the vocoder and it kicks as to!

However, the effects in the Nova isn't the greatest one ( especially the reverb, to much metal. The rest of the effects are fine ) I am just using it cause it is better than my cheap ol' Art Proverb.

As I said before, the preset in the Nova are not good, but not bad either. If you sit down with, you can come up with some crazy, whacked, totaly cool sounds, thanx to the Modulation Matrix. In this feature you can route lfo1, lfo2, env2, env3, mod wheel, to a number of osc settings, like pitch, sync, level, soften, and such.

All in all, it can make your track groove. If you "creativness" for it...

A great piece. Nice preset sounds.

A50 Jungle Sine freq at 28 numbs the brain on a big system.

To bad I returned it three times all due to crazy OS problems after a few months of use?

I hope I'm the only one that got the shaft with OS problems, etc. A very good company for all the other product offerings.

To put it Short. Programmable Arpreggios, 7 Effects per Preformance Voice, TONS of knobs, Phat Pads, Basses, Even Drums. My only Quip is 12 voices and it doesn't emulate Acoustic Instruments well. Then again neither did the Jupiter, Or the Prophet, Or the ARP, MOOG, ........Get the Idea? If you want Acoustic Inst. Sounds, Buy a sampler Please. A Nova is a nice piece of kit and is sooooo warm and juicy (Retro Baby!) Oh yeah. I'm getting my super 2 in a week and Hope to share the Experience With All readers and Synth enthusiasts.-

YOU CANNOT GO WRONG W/ ANYHTHING NOVA!!!! (personal opinion, Of course.)

I sold my prophet V in 1986 and missed it ever since. I bought a NOVA and now I never look back. Its sounds like the way you wish analog could sound.

Buy a nova, you can't go wrong, I've had mine since December and it still blows my mind. I honestly can't think of anything else I'd rather want. Buy this and you'll forget that your girlfriend has just slepped with your best mate. 90 buttons and 18 perk nipples, mmmmmmmm.
