The Novation Peak is a polyphonic synthesizer featuring a total of eight voices. It features three Oxford Oscillators, and an all-analog multimode resonant filter for each separate voice. These features render the synth perfect for both melodic and abstract duties.
If all this wasn’t enough, the Peak features a 16-slot matrix modulation assignment, three ADSR envelopes, an arpeggiator, and effects such as reverb, delay, and chorus. Combine all this with the unit’s CV modulation input and it’s easy to ascertain why this is one of the most versatile desktop synthesizers currently on the market.

Novation Peak Presets Demo With Some Filter And Effect Tweaking
In this video we go through a few presets on the new Novation Peak Synthesizer. We play around with the arpeggiator, filter and effects as well. The filter is a 12 or 24db/octave lowpass, highpass or bandpass type and the effects include pre and post filter drive/distortion, chorus, delay and reverb.
Novation's Peak is an eight-voice polyphonic synthesizer that is one of the most exciting multi-voice synth releases of 2017. Containing three newly designed Oxford Oscillators for each voice, the Peak Synthesizer has a built-in resonant multi-mode analog filter for each individual voice and three distortion points in the analog chain: pre-filter, post-filter and global. It's great for both sound designers and EDM artists because it offers a wide range of tone from melodic to abstract. With a 16-slot matrix modulation assignment, three ADSR envelopes, high quality effects and a built-in arpeggiator, Novation's Peak is great for both live performance and studio work.
