Novation's Flagship Two-Part 16-Voice 61-Key Polyphonic Synthesiser

Summit's digital New Oxford Oscillators offer subtractive, FM and wavetable synthesis, and feed into genuine analogue dual filters, distortion and VCAs. The multitimbral engine enables merging and combining of two complete and independent patches, while up to 16 simultaneous voices deliver enough harmonic depth for even the richest of pads.

The Best Sounding Synthesiser Novation Has Ever Made
Summit doubles the power of Peak's digital New Oxford Oscillators up to 16 voices and two parts, and adds a wealth of new features and a premium-quality five-octave keyboard. A synth much greater than the sum of its parts, it gives the serious producer or performer everything they need to design and play stunning basses, leads, arps, pads, effects and beyond.

Totally tactile sound design
Summit takes Peak's architecture and workflow to new heights, with a swathe of extra front panel controls for hands-on wrangling of FM, effects, LFOs and more; dual filters with six LP/HP/BP combinations; audio input for processing external sources with the onboard effects; and auxiliary audio outputs.

Analogue Where It Matters
The true stereo analogue signal path comprises dual analogue multimode filters, analogue VCAs and three stages of analogue distortion, pre- and post-filter, and post-VCA. With roots in the legendary OSCar, via Bass Station II, Summit's analogue credentials are truly impressive.

Features
• 16-voice, multitimbral engine combines two simultaneous patches
• Five-octave, semi-weighted, velocity-sensitive keyboard with aftertouch
