Is MiniNova for you?
MiniNova's compact size, massive sound and performance/editing controls make it perfect for producers, gigging musicians and anyone creating music with computers - it's also a 37 key controller keyboard with MIDI I/O. The VocaiTune and vocoder enable you to recreate classic vocal effects, as well as brand new voice-bending possibilities!
Choose your sound
MiniNova has 256 on board sounds and space to save another 128 of your own sounds. You can quickly search for sounds by selecting the type of music you're making, or the type of sound you're after whether it's bass, lead, hip hop or techno. Mini Nova comes with a free software Patch Librarian so you can store as many sounds as you want on your computer. If 256 is not enough, there are numerous soundpacks for MiniNova assembled by renowned artists and sound designers.
Tweak, warp and arpeggiate your sound
MiniNova can do things other synths can't. It has knobs which allow you to tweak and edit the sounds, but it can also 'animate' sound with 8 back-lit buttons. These trigger 'mods' in the synth engine that can warp sound in incredible ways as you play. There is also a large knob for filter cutoff so you can get instant control of the filter whatever else you are doing. MiniNova has an arpeggiator, you can use the 8 buttons to jam with arpeggios creating totally new sequences in realtime.
Classic & brand-new vocal effects
MiniNova takes vocal effects one step further. As well as a vocoder, it has VocaiTune. This means you can talk into the mic and play the tune you want your voice to follow on the keyboard recreating those classic Hip Hop / Urban vocal effects. You can also run your voice through Mini Nova's effects engine, adding reverb, distortion, chorus/phase, gator, compression or EQ. This doesn't need to be limited to your voice though, there is an input which you can plug a guitar or any other instrument into and give it the same effects or vocoder treatment.
The synth engine & effects
MiniNova has an enormously powerful synth engine, unheard of in such a compact synth. There are 14 conventional waveforms to choose from (square, sine, sawtooth, pulse, triangle and combinations), 36 wavetables and 20 digital waveforms. Each of the 3 oscillators (per voice) have density/detune for fattening up sounds, virtual sync and 'hardness'- which acts as an additional lowpass filter. There are 14 filter types (and you can run 2 simultaneously), 6 envelope generators, 3 LFOs and 20 modulation slots where you can link modules of the synth engine together to shape sound. Mini Nova can add up to 5 effects to each voice including distortion, reverb, chorus/ phase, delay, compressor, EQ and Novation's unique gator effect.
Editing software included
Editing sounds in such a powerful synth can be overwhelming, so Novation have created a software application gives you visual access to the synth engine. The Mini Nova Editor works as a plug-in within your DAW or music software. You can fully edit MiniNova using the hardware, the software just makes it simpler to see what you are doing.

Really enjoying exploring this synth, I love its range of sounds and the ability to program it. I noticed a couple of issues. The pitch wheel not returning to 0 after moving it, but this was fixed after going back to software version 1.3 / also had some midi sync issues when working in Reaper, some notes sticking on. But apart from these two issues its been great. The software sound editor seems quite intuitive, and the sounds library is really handy.|
