4 octave keyboard trs good quality (semi ballast. This is a perfect keypad.
The mine is 34-voice polyphony.
The main difference with the Supernova II is just the number of multitimbral parts and size of the keyboard. Otherwise the sounds are compatible, so it's the same engine synthse.
With regard to the CHARACTERISTICS, see the data sheet, it contains all dtails. Just know the filters 12,18,24 db, of all types with overdrive is great!
The effects are good and easy rgler trs (reverb, echo, chorus, distortion, EQ and Pan).
Note, there are also drum kits (no samples, sounds synthses only)

UTILIZATION

The ergonomics of this keyboard is its strong point. Easier to use than the Supernova II rack my opinion. It takes a sound, triturated and we get on your exact discount.
The manual is clear and informative trs. The possibilities are enormous.
The arpgiateur is a MODEL of its kind!

SOUNDS

The sound is a matter of taste. There are fans of Waldorf and others who do that and Clavia Nord Lead. The Nova II is the result of Dave Smith (who since the cre Evolver). Since the K-Station Novation and other products, have not had this particular grain trs found in the SERIES of Nova Supernova.
The sound of a Nova is pure as long as you use too much distortion of the filters and effects. It is perfect formula class and most other synths like Roland and Korg. By entries can vocoder or modify any input signal.
The keyboard is of good quality trs much better than a Moog, Waldorf, etc. ... recess with aftertouch.
Currently the price decline the opportunity so that this keyboard is an alternative to C Virus and Nord Lead 3. He's a versatile and is the REFERENCE to the trance, techno house in UK.

OVERALL OPINION

I had a Supernova II and the NOVA II and I always find the sound of this synth really very practical. To make squence, tablecloths and stabs, and drums, the synth can also serve as workstation, because you can assign keyboard and splitter sequences to the keys. It is possible to make complete songs with some presets!

The ratio quality price is really interesting, especially compared to the virus that is not so DIFFERENT that in the end.

A good composer can make a record with this synth is not a toy, but the PRO hardware, even if the price is sometimes used trs down!
