This compact yet powerful Novation MiniNvoa synthesizer and vocoder comprises 37 smaller sized keys than usual, but still allows the ranging controls for just about all your analog sound needs.
You can mash up over 250 different pre-installed soundbytes, as well as your own vocals, instantly for new and creative versions you have in mind. Read all about it in this review.
Huge patches can be created effectively thanks to the extensive twenty slot synth engine built into the device- the same one as is featured on the Novation Ultranova.
Beats and rhythms that you design can be mixed to your taste in little to no time at all with the included arpeggiator.
This MiniNova model from Novation can be linked to your PC or laptop with the USB port and cable, enabling it to be used like a traditional MIDI control.
You definitely get your money’s worth in this modern synth, and it brings loads of fun with it too thanks to the effects on the vocoder.
Who is this model most suitable for?
Those who have owned first-hand or seen the MiniNova’s more powerful predecessor UltraNova in action will know the quality that these Novation models can offer.
The numerous effects, in conjunction with the preset sounds, open up wide possibilities with thousands of combinations for those who like to do some fine tweaking for a distinctive sound.
Easily slotted into existing set-ups at home studios, this compact synthesizer will quickly become a key part of your rig.
The small keyboard is ideal for knocking out a quick tune and getting an immediate feel for the kind of sound you desire to create.
Not only does the MiniNova accept instrumental additions, but is also capable of transforming and enhancing your vocals.
Compression and distortion effects can provide hours of sound production fun altering vocals and jazzing up your instruments.
At a tiny 56cm by 25cm, the MiniNova is literally a smaller version of the popular UltraNova released a few years earlier. The keyboard is small, but this device sits comfortably into any additional set-up you may already have.
The price is awesome for such a small piece of quality sound editing equipment with the top Novation brand name behind it- and the expertise they bring to the device’s production.
The envelopes are triggered by clever processes which cause them to be manually initiated in the same way that the UltraNova does.
The wide range of knobs and buttons to choose from are located within reaching distance of the keyboard, so you can tinker with them whilst still playing a certain key to get altered effects.
The fact that this all-in-one vocoder and synthesizer can deliver just as well as the larger more expensive models should be considered here.
For a home piece of equipment, this is packed with great features often found in larger studio quality synthesizers.
