Summary: I was looking actually for novation 37 keys midi controllers but they don't do them anymore and I've stumbled on this very expressive VA instrument. I have to say I am very impressed with build quality and the sounds possibilities on this baby. When I started to play i could't stop and didn't even have to look into manual.
Excerpt: Nice quality to the sound, lush pads, nice digital basses. Not quite as deep as an analog synth, but then again this is digital so even though it's virtual analog don't expect anything near what an analog synth can do. That said, it is a great digital synth with a nice digital sound, not quite as cool sounding as a virus though if you want a comparison to another popular VA.
"This is a great sounding unique VA, packed with features, powerful synthesizer, great low end, and easy to use interface, a qual"

Excerpt: Ultranova sounds fantastic. Of course that's subjective, but I like it. It has a great low end and effects with many options. I can add all kinds of panning to my sounds with UN. I can get beautiful pads, thick basses or anything else. I also own DSI Tetra and MicroKorg. Obviously DSI Tetra is phatter than UN, but UN holds its own and actually those two make a great combination. Tetra for the analog and UN for the digital.
Excerpt: The sound is great.. I mean its got some of the best sound. The pads are erie and wonderful.. Sounds for modern synth tech/dance/dub set , that kind of thing.., are all wonderful... It has a great sound.. The Arp section alone is worth atleast 2/3rds the cost of the machine... and when using the editor, things get deep and creative.. the sounds come to life in a more rich experience..
Excerpt: novation first crossing my studio speakers. for technical specif see on the site! lol UTILIZATION ergonomics is very good because there are many buttons light addition. 1 hour of intensive work to feel in his hands.
Excerpt: - Keyboard Type 37 keys with aftertouch + a very nice touch in terms of synth that I've been testing in this price range (R3, GAIA or lead North). Supplied with a microphone for a vocoder, a usb cable, the power supply and various driver CD.
Summary: Choosing a synth is never easy. The mafia that run the musical instrument business, manufacturers and retailers both see to it that it is as confusing as possible. They also make sure that no one instrument has it all - that way they can sell you two or three that almost do the same thing. Like mugs we go out and buy more. The current trend is to revamp kit that was around a few years ago and make it do less but do it much better than it did in its original form.
