Summit And Peak v2.0
Novation has launched its firmware update for Summit and Peak
Firmware v2.0 brings in a range of improvements and new features across stereo controls, modulation, unpredictability, and effects, that give Summit and Peak owners new tools to shape their sound. Summit is a two-part, 16-voice, 61-key synthesiser with great harmonic depth, while Peak is an eight-voice polyphonic synthesiser that boasts rich and warm sounds.
Owners will now be able to create bigger, wider, and more intricately textured soundscapes with updated stereo controls, and a range of effects improvements brings new tonalities with the addition of Chorus Modes, Flanger, Phlanger, new effects modulation destinations, and Lo-Fi delay.
New Feature Details:
New spread modes, panning per voice, and panning in the mod matrix give additional control and allows for sound design in the stereo field.
