Big Sound, small synth

Don’t let its size fool you; MiniNova has the most powerful sound engine and effects of any micro synth. More polyphony, more filters, more effects, more modulation.

Every sound has easy access to almost limitless variations, which you can subtly tweak or totally warp with the twist of a knob or the touch of a button. Create all the dirty-fat bass, soaring leads, lush pads and vintage sounds you could possibly want – but on a tough and compact 37 mini-key synth.

Find Your Sound Fast

MiniNova comes with 256 killer sounds, space to save another 128 of your own, and a Patch Librarian for loading and storing as many extra sounds on your computer as you’ll ever need.

That’s a lot of choice, but you can easily search through them by selecting your style or music, or the type of sound you’re after. Bass? Lead? Techno? Hip Hop? Whatever you’re looking for, you’ll find your sound fast. Don’t worry if you’re lacking inspiration: we’re always releasing new free soundpacks for MiniNova, which we create with renowned artists and sound designers.

Create Unique Vocals

MiniNova’s Vocoder comes with a secret weapon: VocalTune. Talk or sing into the mic, and your voice will automatically be tuned to the notes you play on the keyboard.

Or, to do something totally unique with your voice, run it through the effects engine. Add reverb, distortion, chorus/phaser, gator compression or EQ – whatever you need to create attention-grabbing vocals, or recreate iconic vocal lines.

Don’t limit yourself to vocals either: Plug in your instrument or any audio source to do really cool stuff with MiniNova’s VocalTune, vocoder, filters and effects.

Animate and Arpeggiate

Switch to ‘Animate’ mode and press one of the eight backlit buttons to trigger awesome performance functions.

Switch to ‘Arpeggiator’ mode to jam with arpeggiator rhythms in realtime, using the buttons to edit the arpeggiator step sequencer so you can switch steps in and out.
