  1. You’d fucking hoped this had anything to do with their Supernova. Losing all the multitimbrality the older ones had doesn’t really emphasize it’s from the ‘almighty’ supernova. It’s like going backwards in time and reality.

  2. Seeing as this is £299.99 and only contains the Supernova engine, you may as well pay that bit extra for the Ultranova which at least has the Supernova 2 chipset.

  3. Ok the mininova looks nice. But why in the world monotimbral? Its like having a time machine travelling back 20 years. We all have virtual synths now which outperform this “baby” like nothing else. So please Novation, do a nice firmware update and bring us at least 4x multitimbrality. Even a Nord Lead 2 had 4x multitimbrality but was built 1998.

  4. Btw, Novation is too deep in the Dubstep hype with boring monotimbral options and knobs who trigger a LFO for people too stupid to actually turn a knob while making boring music. And their Editor is utter shit. Especially considering that the MiniNova doesn’t have full control over it’s synth fuctions (the Ultranova does) you wont change a patch without experiencing the full Novation© UltraLag and almost crash your Ableton Arrangement. Just buy something else.

  5. it says in the video description that it’s the ultranova sound engine. And who cares if they choose to order the presets in type and genre, it doesn’t mean u have to use them for only that genre, it’s simply a way to find the patches u want faster. How is that a bad thing?

  6. I don’t see what everybody’s issue with this is? Do u think Korg was the first company to ever make a downsized 3 octave keyboard? Give me a break. This looks badass to me, I want one.

  7. @gridsleep Who is “true musical composer” and who are you to decide it? Where is the line? I find many track by people who were not musically trained memorable any timeless. Like Jimi Hendrix, he didn’t know shit about music theory and listen how badass his tunes are. With a bit of inspiration anything can be called music. You can make music on your kitchen stuff, with nature sounds, with distorted synthetic sounds, with your own voice (DubFX). Life is full of sounds, you just need an open mind.
