The Novation Peak is a polyphonic synthesizer featuring a total of eight voices. It features three Oxford Oscillators, and an all-analog multimode resonant filter for each separate voice. These features render the synth perfect for both melodic and abstract duties.
If all this wasn’t enough, the Peak features a 16-slot matrix modulation assignment, three ADSR envelopes, an arpeggiator, and effects such as reverb, delay, and chorus. Combine all this with the unit’s CV modulation input and it’s easy to ascertain why this is one of the most versatile desktop synthesizers currently on the market.
As of firmware version 1.2, the Peak now offers a huge host of new features. Two additional non-voice-specific LFOs and pitch bend (including polarity-specific pitch bend messages). A new mod matrix design makes accessing all 16 modulation slots far simpler, and the new FX mod matrix allows for additional routing of four non-voice-specific modulation sources to the Peak's various FX parameters. Envelopes now offer a Hold stage and option for AD looping envelopes. And certainly not least of all, the Peak now offers microtuning, allowing users to add up to 16 tuning tables to their instruments at a time, turning even simple patches into rich sources of otherworldly, unexplored harmony.
