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 filter options, and an audio input for processing external sources with its reverb, chorus and delay effects.
Peak Powered Up
At the heart of Summit are three digital Oxford Oscillators per voice, hosted on the FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) chip. As well as generating authentic analog-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 analog filters, three stages of analog distortion and analog VCAs; while a wealth of modulation assignment options and three colourful effects bring movement, life and polish to your patches.
The acclaimed Peak architecture taken to the next level, with 16 voices, expanded front panel controls, additional filter options, a five-octave keyboard and more.
Multitimbral engine for splitting, stacking and switching between two simultaneous patches.
Digital FPGA-generated Oxford Oscillators for analog-style, wavetable and FM synthesis.
Dual analog filters, analog VCAs and three stages of analog distortion per voice.
Process each part or an external audio signal with reverb, chorus and delay effects, and create riffs and melodic lines with a variety of arp modes, adjustable gate time and preset patterns.
