MiniNova packs the sort of specs you'd expect to find in an instrument twice the size, and sounds like one double the price. Whether you're a music production novice taking your first steps in synthesis, the keyboard player in a band looking for a sturdy, road-worthy instrument, or an experienced sound designer after a pro-quality portable addition to your existing arsenal, Novation's backpack-sized beast more than delivers.
- Make Huge Sounds: Create dirty-fat bass, soaring leads, lush pads and vintage sounds with up to 18 voices and powerful effects.
- Built By a Legend: MiniNova's synth engine was conceived, shaped and refined by British synth legend Chris Huggett and his five decades of passion, experience and expertise.
- Gently Tweak or Instantly Warp: Subtly tweak your sounds with the knobs, or totally warp them with the Animate buttons, and pitch and modulation wheels.
- Create Unique Vocals: Talk or sing into the mic and run your voice through the keyboard and effects engine.
- Find Your Sound Fast: Instantly search through 256 sounds by type or musical genre, and save 128 more sounds of your own.
- Layer Your Effects: Each voice can be processed with up to five effects, including distortion, reverb, chorus, phase, delay, compressor, EQ and Gator.
- Store All Your Sounds: Use the Editor Plug-in and Patch Librarian to fully edit your synth and effects, and store as many sounds as you can fit onto your Mac or PC.
- Take It Anywhere: Tough, compact and bus-powered via USB, so you can easily take it wherever you go.
- Get Free Sounds: Download regular free soundpacks created by eminent artists and sound designers.
