Flagship synthesiser for studio and stage

Novation are incredibly proud to announce the release of Summit, their new flagship synthesiser for studio and stage. Built on the same innovative foundations as the critically acclaimed Peak, Summit’s deep sound design capabilities, massive polyphony and intuitive, tactile workflow add up to a synth that’s far more than the sum of its parts.

Two Peaks in One...

With its multitimbral architecture and 16 voices of polyphony, Summit is like two Peaks in one instrument, enabling two completely independent patches to be split or layered across the keyboard, or switched between on the fly. But that's by no means the end of the story: the addition of per-part dual filters, greatly extended front panel controls, audio input and, of course, the same premium-quality five-octave keyboard introduced with our SL MkIII MIDI controller, put Summit in a creative league of its own.

New Oxford Oscillator

At the heart of Summit is the digital New Oxford Oscillator, three of which are employed by every one of its 16 voices. Hosted on the advanced FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) chip, these not only generate authentic analogue waveforms at incredibly high resolution (24MHz), but also facilitate FM and wavetable synthesis for rich, complex and highly textural raw tones.

True stereo analogue signal path

The FPGA feeds into a true stereo analogue signal path. Each part features its own per-voice analogue dual filter (switchable between six paired combinations of low-pass, high-pass and band-pass modes), analogue VCAs and three stages of analogue distortion – pre- and postfilter, and post-VCA. It’s the union of flawless analogue-emulating oscillators with genuine analogue filtering and saturation that make Summit sound so fabulously warm and fat.

A wealth of modulation sources

Summit also boasts a wealth of modulation sources and assignment options, three stunning FPGA-generated effects, audio input for routing external sources into those effects (while still using the other multitimbral part as a synth), and an auxiliary output. And the front panel expands greatly on Peak’s layout with the addition of dedicated controls for FM, all LFOs, effects and more.

Quite simply the best sounding, most versatile synth Novation has ever made, Summit gives the serious producer or performer everything they need to design and play stunning basses, leads, arps, pads, effects, soundbeds and beyond.
