Ultranova – The Sound Designer’s Dream

UltraNova sounds great with the very simplest of patches, but also gives you intuitive hands-on control over the powerful synth engine for deep and complex sound editing. Alter your sounds however you like, then shape them to perfection with 5-way multi-FX processor.

The powerful modulation matrix lets you connect any source to whatever you like, so you can create almost any sound you can imagine. Don’t worry if sound editing isn’t your thing; we’ll also send you regular soundpack updates, with loads of new sounds to inspire you.

Trust Your Sound

The UltraNova synth engine is the result of synth design experience and expertise spanning five decades.

Create Truly Unique Sounds

Create just about any sound you can think of, using three oscillators, an 18 voice synth engine, wavetable synthesis and multiple modulation options.

Shape Complex Sounds

Create and edit complicated sounds using hands-on controls and a wide, easy-to-read LCD screen.

Comprehensive Effects

Add depth to your sounds, and sculpt them to perfection using reverb, delay, chorus, distortion and more.

Touch n’ Tweak

Instantly tweak or totally warp your sound using eight touch-sensitive encoders and a dedicated filter knob.

Expressive Keyboard

An Italian-made, 37-note Fatar keyboard, with aftertouch and a level of quality that players will instantly appreciate.

Simple Audio Streaming
