Superbooth 2019 convention has well and truly kicked off in Berlin with Novation's announcement of the Summit, a new synth which boasting a two-part, 16 voice synth engine that goes far beyond its predecessor's Peak.
The best parts of the Peak desktop synth are all included, with the dual synth engines allowing for two independent patches to be split or layered across the keyboard, and with three of Novation's New Oxford Oscillators employed to provide a high-res digital sound to each of the keyboard's 16 voices.
Further additions are dual filters, extended front panel controls, audio inputs and, most essential, the five-octave keyboard off Novation's SL MkIII MIDI controller. As of yet, there is no price or availability announced.
Superbooth 2019 is the place to be for all elektronic musicians, with room in the Berlin ballroom for the year's best creators of synth, sound design and production equipment to strutt their stuff.
With day one underway announcements have come thick and fast from the convention room floor, with Elektron, IK Multimedia, Soundforce, Endorphin.es and more taking advantage of the limelight to release brand new gear. With Saturday fast approaching, there is sure to be many more incredible announcements over the next two days. Stay tuned!
