About Novation UltraNova
UltraNova is a 'Nova'
series analogue-modelling synthesizer with a powerful effects processor.
It is a single-part synth taking the legendary Supernova II synth
engine as a starting point and packing it with
the latest technology. It now has brand new features including
wavetable synthesis, even more powerful filters, a software editor and a
revolutionary new touch-sense performance mode. The UltraNova vocoder
is a 12 band vocoder that can be fed by the included
gooseneck microphone or other instruments via stereo line inputs.
There are also a series of additional free artist and sound-designer
soundpacks - including banks from the original Supernova and Supernova
