Novation SupernovaPublished on 03/14/06 at 02:07
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
Modeling Synth Rack type, with lots of buttons (at least 60 in all)
20-voice polyphony
6 separate outputs
512 sounds and 256 performances.
3 oscillators
super modulation matrix
full effects: chorus, phazer, flanger, EQ, Comb filter, delay, reverb etc ...
2 LFOs, 3 ca

UTILIZATION

Very easy to use thanks to the many buttons, you can easily create a sound from another and do things like a real analog.
The manual is sufficient for those notions of subtractive synthesis.
Configuration simply plug and play.

SOUNDS

SOUNDS

Frankly, there is little space between a Supernova and a Virus C. Apart from some twisted sounds, sequences, multis, the Supernova is everything and more it's a much more generous and friendly as the last Novations

I love the sound of this synth, very friendly, but also very violent at times, he excels in the big sounds a bit like the Virus.

This machine is used in many dance hit, it is obvious as soon as we hear it we recognize certain sounds very typical.

I love this machine. We had told me from evil, that was such a plugin. I'm not AT ALL AGREE!
Xphrase is to throw in the trash next. It is still highly rated and deserves.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 2 months. It a grain rounder and nicer than the Waldorf. I do not spit on Waldorf on the contrary, I am a fan, but a German Supernova is more Californian in style.

It has a very versatile grain and make it little pieces with him because he is very good percussions, bass drum etc..

A lot of polyphony for a bargain price is around 700 EUR is the price of a large VST plugin, but there is no picture, ergonomic level as at the level of sound, it's worth and a setup he can do anything.

His only fault, really it does not emulate the sound of analog. It has a more sophisticated, too noble compared to the brutality or the analog emulation Nord Lead.

I do not regret this synth and I keep in my setup, I used almost all my pieces.

See my predecessors on this point.
However it should be noted that with a recent OS (there is at version 4.1 - http://www.novationmusic.com/ ) we obtain a third waveform ("double saw" ..) and nine types of filters in addition to the classic "low", "band" and "high". For the latter, three slopes are available (12, 18 and 24 dB)
For fans of hot sounds, note that the "filter" has an overdrive.
Also note the presence of a programmable arpeggiator very effective.
Finally, we emphasize strongly enough the great utility of the eight outputs!

UTILIZATION

A quick glance at the manual to understand the principle of the block "modulation" to own this synth and you can start working its sounds. Nothing is easier and more intuitive, as a facade is, each parameter having its button or knob. In addition, manipulation of one of these buttons or knobs automatically display the associated parameter in the display lights.
It is not far from perfection in ergonomics!
.. In addition, following the remark of an astute reader, I must change my opinion here: I blamed because the original Supernova to be common syndrome of "jump potentiometers" may make its use problematic live. Now there is the menu "global", according to a "pickup" in which a potentiometer only returned to action only when it reaches the current value of the associated parameter. Finally, all parameters can be controlled from a sequencer via MIDI. The use of this machine is therefore only of happiness: 10/10!

SOUNDS

The sounds in this unit are the best. Less abrupt (albeit at great shots ring-modulator and comb filter, it is possible to achieve sounds quite violent) That a Nordlead, but much warmer.
If we had to compare its overall sound to analog, I approach the Matrix 6 Oberheim and 12.
Often cited the quality of its ground but the leads are also excellent, that they prefer fatty or acidic.
A more fundamental to me (especially my ears): The ultra fast envelopes that allow a definition of his remarkable, especially in the bass.
The effect section is its role, with the exception (no surprise) of the reverb, very metallic and use sparingly. But the separate outputs advantageously allow our router to a sound external reverb.

OVERALL OPINION

For over six years that I use this synth with happiness. I dub, and I am often asked how I get my "mega bass". Answer: With the Supernova!
Its ease of use and intuitiveness makes me use it every day. It's really, with my samplers, the machine that I can do without.
If it was initially quite expensive, its bargain price, between 400 and 500 euros in fact a bargain.
One concern, however: In the long run, the buttons light, so convenient (and attractive!), Prove fragile. I advise you not to dive this machine in a smoky atmosphere? And if you purchase, please check all the buttons one by one in number is tedious, but essential to avoid unpleasant surprises.
