Novation Summit

two-part 16-voice 61-key polyphonic synthesiser (2019)


"Synthesizer with subtractive, FM and wavetable synthesi, inspired by  previous model Novation Peak "


KEYBOARD 61 keys with velocity and aftertouch, Metal chassis with American walnut wooden end cheek,  55 shiny knobs and sliders - all knobs sliders and most buttons transmit and receive MIDI cc commands for external control and mappin -  2 wheels on the side, and OLED display.

MEMORY  up to 512 slots on hardware including 256 factory patches, not compatible with Novation Peak

-EC power supply connector
-USB socket for system (MIDI comms only, no bus power) 
-MIDI In / Out / Thru 
-2x 1/4" jack sockets for continuous or switched pedals 
-1x 3.5mm jack socket for CV in 
-2x 1/4" jack sockets for left and right outputs 
-2x 1/4" jack sockets for left and right auxiliary outputs 
-2x 1/4" jack sockets for left and right inputs 
-1/4" jack socket for headphone output



SOUND polyphony is organized in 2x8 voices (lower/upper)  that can be used also in split, layer or other Voice Modes assign like Mono, MonoLG, Mono2, Poly, Poly2. Each voice is composed by 3 digitally controlled oscillator  "NCO – Numerically Controlled Oscillator" or Oxford Oscillator based on FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) with digital waveformn Sinewave, triangle, sawtooth, square / pulse (with shaping, width), plus 43 wavetables of 5 waveforms per row.   Oscillators can be put in Linear FM with dedicated routing modulation: 1>2, 2>3, 3>1

 1 analog OTA filter per voice multimode with 12/24dB slope :
- Low-pass / band-pass / high-pass / dual filter (separation of each 12dB filters) 
 -dual filter: LP > HP, LP > BP, HP > BP, LP + HP, LP + BP, HP + BP, LP + LP, BP + BP, and HP + HP

LFO AND ENVELOPE: 1 amp envelope and 2 mod envelopes (ADHSR + looping) + 2 LFO modulators

EFFECTS  Analogue distortion , 3 chorus types  Delay with 16 types of delay sync, LP and HP damping, slew and stereo
