Novation Peak

Novation Peak - Eight-voice polyphonic synthesiser!

eak sounds warm, but can also become very biting with lots of distortion if desired. The eight-voice polyphonic desktop synthesiser offers three Oxford oscillators per voice. In addition, Peak has a resonance multi-mode filter per voice and three different distortion points in the analogue signal chain.

Analogue in the important places - digital where it counts
Peak is an eight-voice, polyphonic desktop synthesiser with three New Oxford oscillators per voice. The oscillators sound completely analogue because they are high-quality NCOs (numerically controlled oscillators), but with 17 digital wavetables they are also flexible like their digital counterparts.
Thanks to the NCOs with analogue sound or also the digital wavetables, they can even become a linear FM source and drive cross-modulation in a recursive loop.

The synthesiser has one resonant multi-mode analogue filter and three distortion points for each voice - pre-filter, post-filter and global - in an analogue signal chain. Peak can record polyphonic aftertouch, giving you an incredible range of expressive possibilities. Reverb, delay and chorus effects are also available and there is also an integrated arpeggiator.

Create and refine new sounds from scratch
The modulation system combines a modulation matrix with 16 slots and 16 direct assignments in the main controls, which are cleverly arranged to allow intuitive patch design and sound editing. There are three ADSR envelopes and two LFOs to discover per voice.

More elaborate phrases and secondary "via" assignments are thus possible with just a few keystrokes. In addition, artists can instantly transform patches with just one touch during live performances.

Simply connect everything
Peak connects to modular systems via a CV modulation input and provides MIDI I/O via five-pin DIN jacks, so other MIDI equipment can be connected as well. Peak connects to your Mac or PC via the USB port. This allows you to save and use countless patches using the Components software.
