NB: You can set the velocity amount on each of the three envelopes and then route the envelopes to virtually any parameter (including cut-off freq of course).

Pros: - Great sound - Very easy to use - Lots of posibilities - Multi-timbral effects(!) - Single programs editable directly in Multimode - Input with vocoder - Flexible and complex arpeggiator - Take off the cheap plastic wings and turn it into very handsome piece of machinery - Most well-designed synth I've ever layed my hands on (maybe appart from its big brother)

Cons: - Osc section maybe too complex to master for the beginner (not necessarily a con though) - Audio-input requires MIDI-input, i.e. you need to send KEY ON-messages to the NOVA if you want to use it as a multi-fx unit - Listen button that plays a note would be nice (the search function plays a useless and annoying sequence) - Is it me or is there no way to route velocity to the different synth parameters (e.g. cutoff freq)??? - There's a little beep from the unit each time you push a button. Would be nice if you could turn that off ...

All in all a great machine, the greatest virtual on the market IMHO.

Brilliant piece of equipment. I always liked the Supernova, and the Nova sounds positively identical. I'm not sure there's a sound it cannot make yet. Big fat bass, ethereal light pads, Juno-ish blips, analog drums...

I love it. Best thousand dollars (okay, $1095) I ever spent. It makes my Roland JP-8000 feel like a distant childhood memory.
