Novation Summit Polyphonic Synthesizer overview by GAK.

Meet Summit. Novations new bi-timbral 16 voice synthesiser keyboard. With the power of 2 Novation PEAK synthesisers under its hood SUMMIT is more than the sum of its parts.

Built on the innovative foundations of Novation’s critically acclaimed Peak, Summit is a three-oscillator-per-voice, 16-voice keyboard synth aimed at the professional or semi-professional musician seeking an inspiring, empowering instrument for use both live and in the studio. In fact, Summit effectively puts the power of two Peaks at your fingertips, enabling two completely independent patches to be split or layered across the keyboard, or switched between on the fly. It also expands on Peak’s layout, with many ‘hidden’ controls and functions made accessible on the front panel – FM routing, LFOs 3 and 4, all arpeggiator parameters and more – plus the addition of pitch and mod wheels. Summit also features numerous new filter options, and an audio input for processing external sources with its reverb, chorus and delay effects. At the heart of Summit are three digital New Oxford Oscillators per voice, hosted on the FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) chip. As well as generating authentic analogue-style waveforms at incredibly high resolution, this also facilitates FM and wavetable synthesis for the design of rich, complex and highly textural raw tones. Each voice feeds into a true stereo signal path comprising dual analogue filters, three stages of analogue distortion and analogue VCAs; while a wealth of modulation assignment options and three colourful effects bring movement, life and polish to your patches.

Peak powered up The acclaimed Peak architecture taken to the next level, with 16 voices, expanded front panel controls, new filter options, a five-octave keyboard and more

Two sounds at once Multitimbral engine for splitting, stacking and switching between two simultaneous patches

Digital where it counts Digital FPGA-generated New Oxford Oscillators for analogue-style, wavetable and FM synthesis

Analogue where it matters Dual analogue filters, analogue VCAs and three stages of analogue distortion per voice
