    Summit is the new flagship synthesiser from Novation. The Novation Summit is a two-part, three-oscillator-per-voice, polyphonic synth with 16 voices. Built on the innovations of the critically acclaimed Peak, this synthesiser is a force to be reckoned with. A true workhorse live and in the studio which produces electronic sounds of all kinds, from basses, leads and arps to pads, FX, soundbeds and beyond.

    Summit effectively combines the power of two Peaks at your fingertips, enabling two completely independent patches to be split or layered across the keyboard, or switched between on the fly. It also expands on Peak’s layout, with many ‘hidden’ controls and functions made accessible on the front panel – FM routing, LFOs 3 and 4, all arpeggiator parameters and more – plus the addition of pitch and mod wheels. Summit also features numerous new filter options, and an audio input for processing external sources with its reverb, chorus and delay effects.

    At the heart of Summit are three digital New Oxford Oscillators per voice, hosted on the FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) chip. As well as generating authentic analogue-style waveforms at incredibly high resolution, this also facilitates FM and wavetable synthesis for the design of rich, complex and highly textural raw tones. Each voice feeds into a true stereo signal path comprising dual analogue filters, three stages of analogue distortion and analogue VCAs; while a wealth of modulation assignment options and three colourful effects bring movement, life and polish to your patches. 

    Summit boasts a wealth of modulation sources and assignment options, and three stunning FPGA-generated effects, all operated directly from the front panel.

    Software Included
    Novation Summit comes with Ableton Live Lite and gives you access to Novation Sound Collective.

    Main features of the Novation Summit include:

  • 16-voice polyphonic synth
  • Digital FPGA-generated New Oxford Oscillators for subtractive, FM and wavetable synthesis
  • True stereo analogue signal path
  • Dual analogue filters (derived from Bass Station II), analogue VCAs and three stages of analogue distortion
  • 2-part multitimbral engine for merging and combining two simultaneous patches
  • Brings many of Peak’s hidden parameters to the front panel for much easier access, most notably the FM controls
  • 5-octave, semi-weighted, premium-quality keyboard with velocity sensitivity and polyphonic aftertouch
  • 16 freely assignable modulation slots
  • Onboard reverb, chorus and delay effects
  • Arpeggiator with key latching, adjustable gate time, and a variety of modes including Chord and Random
  • Stereo inputs can be used to route an external source to Summit’s FX section
  • CV input for Eurorack or other CV sources
  • Internal PSU for convenient powering without a wall wart
