Novation has done a lot for the keyboard world. Their Nova and SuperNova synths are cult classics, and the innovative Automap technology made great strides toward simplifying MIDI setups. Now you can have both the power of an analog-modeled synth and Automap in one unit, known simply as UltraNova. Boasting wavetable synthesis, 14 filter types, six envelopes, a trio of LFOs, effects, and a whole lot more, UltraNova is a very powerful sound-creation tool.
Of course, with this level of power and control onboard, you need a clean and clear means of control. Novation answers with dedicated buttons for each part of the synth which are linked to eight encoders. These encoders give the UltraNova a very analog-type vibe. Any synth worth its salt is inspiring to play, and UltraNova takes it to the next level with its "Touch" performance system, which allows you to trigger envelopes, filters, LFOs, and effects by simply touching the encoders. A vocoder and included mic give you even more options. But that's not all! UltraNova is also equipped with a 2-in/4-out USB audio interface (you can also draw bus power through the USB port!) that can stream audio to and from your computer.
