MiniNova Synthesizer description:

The Novation MiniNova Virtual Analogue Synth is the ultimate in compact studio and live synth performance, with its quick-access interface, incredible sound creation possibilities and retro, stylish design.

The Novation MiniNova features the impressive UltraNova sound engine, complete with all of its emulated and otherworldly sounds, but housed in a smaller chassis. Novation have made sure that sounds are quickly selectable and editable thanks to a core category-selection knob and a wide range of buttons, encoders and sliders that can then be used to select specific patches and edit parameters swiftly.

There are 256 onboard sounds on the MiniNova to edit, with as many as 18 voices available at any one time, while user patches can be created in addition to these. The edits can be made in real-time thanks to the hands-on control surface, enabling the possibility of live articulations or adapting parameters in perfect context as you play. Separately, the MiniNova's effects can be added to each of these voices - up to five at once - allowing the potential for gigantic tonal stacking and layering.

The MiniNova includes software that allows users to edit and catalogue patches in a handy library interface, using the USB connection to hook up to a Mac or PC. The 37 key mini-keybed can be used in conjunction with this and the MIDI I/O to act as a fast and responsive controller keyboard with DAWs and plug-ins, too.

The MiniNova's vocoder patches span numerous retro and modern sounds, and also feature a brand new setting: VocalTune. This can be used to create the auto-tune effect heard on a large number of modern records, and can either be applied subtly to better increase pitch accuracy or heavily for a more staggered warping sound.

For astonishing amounts of power in a slight and dynamic-looking chassis, the MiniNova is in a class of its own. Novation's new creation is an ideal addition to a live setup or project studio.

The main features of the Novation MiniNova synthesizer include:

  • Hugely powerful mini-synth with UltraNova's sound engine
  • Brand new VocalTune and classic vocoder effects
  • Tweak and warp your sounds in realtime
  • 256 awesome onboard sounds - instantly searchable
  • Up to 18 voices available
  • Layer up to 5 effects per voice
  • Comes with editing software and a software patch librarian
  • Run guitars and other instruments though the vocoder and effects
  • 37-key controller keyboard with MIDI In/Out

Pros: +
Beefy sound, chunky build, cool presets although you'll most likely be itching to fiddle with them. Great in the studio, easy to fit on due to it being so compact and I imagine great fun in performance too.

Cons: -
For under £300, none yet!

A superb synthesiser for an incredible price. Don't be fooled by its looks, download the free Editor plugin to see what lies beneath the hood. Novation have also released the Supernova sound packs which sound massive (albeit mono timbrel)

Beautiful synth, easy to get to grips with and sounds great. Easy to mess around with sounds and create your own once you start using the editing software. Love it.

Great mini synth with lots of different sounds, still getting know my way around at the moment.
The only thing that could be a problem to some would be the small keys, having small hands its okay for me.

A little gem of a synth. I'd used synths for a number of years but had never really got into programming. The Mininova makes it so easy to dive in and tweak the existing (already brilliant) patches, or create your own sounds from scratch. I can't stop playing it and tweaking it.

This is a good British designed synth and proper vocoder, made for tweaking sounds while playing live. You can make your own sounds or use the factory installed presets, which I am currently exploring. Don't be put off by the mini keys as full midi support is included so you can connect your favourite controller keyboard.

The factory sounds are great in themselves and they invite you to tweak them. The controls are well thought out. If you want to play while travelling just add headphones and.connect to mains or to a laptop usb socket. The feel of the onboard keys won't let you down.

The provided software features a midi librarian for stand alone use or within a vst environment. A useful controller vsti which gives access to the guts of the mininova is also provided. Can't fault it, so buy one. Recommend dv247 as a vendor offering a good price with 3 year guarantee. Came well packed and worked right out of the box with good documentation. Thanks!
