Wait til you get VERSION - 4 installed Dan !!!!!! - 9 more filters, Doublesaw waveform, Unison mode, super-nasty distortion etc etc .

All for the price of a short download from Novation`s site. - most of the sound creation potential of the Supernova-2 infact (bar FM, but who cares about that with TX81z`s costing around £80).

The Supernova is the "Jupiter" of the VAs, warm smooth huge and contrasts nicely with a Nord or Virus

Well I took the plunge and finally forked out my hard earned cash (£650 - thats UKP) for the Supernova I Rackmount (3.1 beta 2 OS).....

First of all I must say, my god can this bitch scream!!!! I appreciate that it doesn't have the same depth of sound that you get with propper analogue but who cares when you can make sounds that will make your ears bleed!

Having plugged it in and turned it on, read the first few pages of the manual, thrown the manual away (Novation take note, the manual sucks!) and finaly started twiddling knobs, I was able to make weird and wonderfull sounds within minutes!..

This is a beast of a VA! When compated to things like the Nord 2 or the Virus it can certainly hold its own.... screaming and kicking and grinding away like some mad sci-fi robot plugged into your P.A

If you're into making weird and wonderfull techno, trance or house then buy this! If you're one of those wanky people who only wants traditional analgoue sounds then go mortgage your house and buy a Wasp, 303, 808 blah blah blah....

This box rocks!

Walking through the keyboard section in my local Guitar Center, I only had the Waldorf XTK(30-voice)in mind to add to my exotic-toys-r-us studio. Since I never saw the Novation in my local Guitar Center I was never able to try it but, this time they had the rack version and for the sack of god I tryed it out and I was orgasm by this blue mistress! she told me dirty stories like no other synth has I couldn't keep my fingers off her! the XTK was just sittin their jealous of the Novation because I'm no longer going to buy the Waldorf(maybe after I have a Novation in my studio) since I was short from buying the keyboard version I have to wait a few more frigging months but I know it's going to be all worth the wait!

Supernova II rack...about $1,700. US There is only one thing I don't like about the unit..It clips too easily. It requires reprogramming of the majority of patches. You really have to be aware that in order for the SN II to be with in it's proper operating level and I do mean LEVELS here, most of the sound needs to be in the 0dBV range.. Not by turning down your mixer but lowering all level controls. Other than that the SN II is beautifull

The Supernova has been a godsend; in our first year we used for the main sounds on almost everything we did. It's so versatile and extremely easy to get something going.

It does have a certain sound, and I've used it so much I can hear it (or think I can!) on a lot of records.

I'd recommend this for anybody interested in programming their own sounds; the plethora of knobs and buttons just ask to be tweaked, and the filters and modulation capabilities are superb. The effects section (all 56 of them) is a real bonus for producing performances that sound like the sum of their parts and not a compromise, as in many other machines.

If anyone fancies a listen to tracks made using a Supernova, have a listem at:

The tracks are around 50% Supernova (the other 50% from the Yamaha EX5)
