MiniNova introduces VocalTune, an amazing effect that can tune your voice to the note being played on the synth in real time. It also features a powerful new vocoder engine, which can be fed by either the included gooseneck mic or the external input. Novation’s unique ‘Animate’ buttons let you apply up to eight deeply expressive modulations, with a hold button that latches any or all of the animations. Arpeggiate mode lets you easily play and program your rhythmic synth parts on the fly. What’s more, MiniNova connects to your computer via USB, where free plug-in software can be used for patch library management.
MiniNova has two quarter-inch mono jack outputs, a stereo headphones output, full-size XLR and jack inputs for routing sounds through the vocoder and on-board effects, as well as a five-pin MIDI input and output and an input for a sustain pedal. Power can be supplied via USB or a 9V DC power supply.
