View Full Version : Novation products
01.02.2004, 08:55 PM
Does anyone have the experience about different novation products. Personally I own the A-station, but I'm not really satisfied with it. Does the Nova series really offer a better sound, or is there just more options for filters etc. What do you think?
There was a new OS released for the Nova synthesizer that added an extra four voices, nine new filter types, etc.
As for whether or not the sound quality is better in the more expensive models, thats for someone who owns Novation gear to answer :)

i had a nova for about 3 month but i sold it cuz i didnt like the sound. It sounded kinda lofi. But i used to own a bassstation rack and it was good(although the os crashed after a month, so i had to send it back to get it fixed) I don't like novation products they feel/sound very "low buget" but thats just my opinion...and what do i know :?

I know exactly what you mean. But sometimes those sounds can work very well in the mix. I never use the A-station to make killer leads, but sometimes my compositions becomes "to infected"... 10 different Virus sounds on top of each other isn't really what I like.
Seemes like people has this general opinion about all novation gear, not only the cheap A-station...

I've tried out a lot of Novation stuff at the store; but I've always ended up feeling that it was just lacking....no matter if it's the nova, k-station, bass-station, or what have you; they just don't seem to sit as well in a mix as a virus or nord or waldorf.
I would like to bring one home sometime and see if I can get better things out of it here; but maybe I shouldn't waste my time on something that I just don't like the sound of...

i have a bass station rack and v-station and the major difference between them and the virus is their filter, it is not ... let's say .. as agressive as the virus's, it sounds thin, btw i agree with u machinegunjoe, it sounds lofi, but i guess thats the drawback of the thin filter.
but sometimes my compositions becomes "to infected"...
i know what u mean! that's also true i think, that's why now i try to use some VSTi that sound a bit different from the virus, like Albino, which i am really enjoying right now!

I own a nova...and i wouldnt say it better or worse then say a virus...just different...its all in the way u use the nova...it has a brighter sound then some VA's...really good for lead sounds...i like the square too...and the assignable env....I need to try a KS rack, but i have been please with what i have been able to get out of it...i would say that it just takes a bit more finess then most VA's...the sync options on it is awesome tho compared to the virus...i was disappointed when i just saw a button for syn on the virus...althought there is still a good amount u can do with it, there is so much more u can do sync wise with the nova...
