JUNE 4, 2015--Novation announced today that to highlight the history and legacy of their synthesizers, they will be giving away a vintage Oxford OSCar analog synth. The unit has been fully restored and serviced and is in mint, playable condition.

UPDATE August 1, 2015: One month left to go! The competition closes on August 31, 2015. Check out the new video below!

What does Novation have to do with the OSCar? “The heritage of the modern Novation synth range ... goes right back to EDP’s Wasp in 1978--which had the same filter as our first BassStation--and includes the OSCar, the legendary monosynth used in Jean-Michel Jarre’s Revolutions Overture,said Novation marketing manager Hannah Bliss. “The unifying factor here is our synth designer, Chris Huggett. The same man who designed Wasp and OSCar also created the sound engines for all our modern synths.”
