The Summit marks the peak of Novation's synthesizer linup. Or Peaks, rather, because the Summit is two of Novation's Peak synthesizers with a 61-key keybed comined into one piece. The Summit is the one synth that we just could not find a bad sound on. It's great for writing, touring and studio work!

Novation Summit 2-part 16-voice 61-key Polyphonic Synthesizer

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 colorful effects bring movement, life and polish to your patches.

Summit Firmware Update v2.0

In Novation's biggest update for Summit, firmware update v2.0 brings in essential improvements and a multitude of features across stereo controls, modulation, unpredictability, and effects, that give you powerful tools to shape your sound.

Firmware v2.0 Features:

Stereo
New spread modes, panning per voice, and panning in the mod matrix give additional control and allows for sound design in the stereo field. Now you can create bigger, wider, and more intricately textured soundscapes.

Modulation and unpredictability
Create deeper and more experimental sounds with new mod destinations, noise as a mod source, and additional LFO 3 and 4 parameters. Animate Envelopes and Arpeggiator Chance open more creative performance possibilities.

Effects
New effects, including Chorus Modes, Flanger, and Phlanger add new tonalities. Additional effects modulation destinations open up more experimental sound design. A new Lo-Fi delay mode enables a more vintage style sound.

Bug Fixes
The firmware update v2.0 includes a number of bug fixes. The full details can be found in the release notes.

Summit and Peak firmware v2.0 is the last addition to the legacy of Chris Huggett's innovative synth design work with Novation. Having shaped the sound of Novation's iconic synths - including Bass Station, Supernova, Bass Station II, Peak and Summit, Chris has left an indelible imprint on Novation's heritage, and we will always be grateful for his influence and inspiration.
