UltraNova is a ‘Nova’ series analogue-modelling synthesizer with a powerful effects processor. It is a single-part synth taking the legendary Supernova II synth engine as a starting point and packing it with the latest technology. It now has brand new features including wavetable synthesis, even more powerful filters, a software editor and a revolutionary new touch-sense performance mode.

The 'Nova' family was born in 1998 with the Supernova, which was the first of a series of powerful synthesisers. These quickly became industry standard 'big-synths' which are still used by countless artists and sound designers.UltraNova is the latest addition to the family bringing the range right up to date with a host of new features and a more affordable price tag.

The Sound Designer's Dream

UltraNova is our most advanced, configurable and controllable synth, designed to create new, unique and edgy sounds, plus all the classics you'd expect from a Nova-series synth. UltraNova sounds great with the very simplest of patches, but also gives you intuitive hands-on control over the powerful synth engine for deep and complex sound editing. Alter your sounds however you like, then shape them to perfection with 5-way multi-FX processor. The powerful modulation matrix lets you connect any source to whatever you like, so you can create almost any sound you can imagine. Don't worry if sound editing isn't your thing; we'll also send you regular soundpack updates, with loads of new sounds to inspire you.

Create Truly Unique Sounds

This is our most ambitious synth to date. It takes our legendary SuperNova analogue-modelling synth engine, and enhances it to vastly increase its sonic capabilities. The result is a synth that can create sounds that are simply impossible with other synths in its class.

Touch n' Tweak


UltraNova's patches are more than just static presets. Each is set up with up to eight parameters, which can be tweaked or totally warped using touch-sensitive encoders. Tweak to alter the brightness or dial in some grit, or touch to trigger subtle movement in your sound, or seriously warp it into something completely different.

Comprehensive Effects


Add depth to your sounds, and sculpt them to perfection using reverb, delay, chorus, distortion and more.

Expressive Keyboard

An Italian-made, 37-note Fatar keyboard, with aftertouch and a level of quality that players will instantly appreciate.

Simple Audio Streaming

UltraNova has a built in Audio Interface. Record your synth sound direct to your DAW via the USB cable. No audio cables needed.

One Cable for Everything

Use a single USB cable for power, audio and MIDI I/O. It's ideal for a compact studio setup, and way less hassle on stage too.

Synthesise with Your Voice


Combine the power of the UltraNova engine with an integrated 12-band vocoder and included gooseneck mic, to be musical or experimental with your voice.

Easily Edit Patches


Save, manage and easily edit your patches, with the comprehensive yet intuitive VST and AU plug-in editor and standalone librarian.

  • Phenomenal digital synth!

The built-in vocoder and intuitive front panel makes the Ultranova an amazing bargin. Blue isn't my color, but the keyboard sounds so good I've learned not to mind it. Recommended for EDM and techno acts.

I love the sounds on the Ultranova. It's not as easy to get into some of the features, but it sounds great! Comes with vocoder and mic. Great for creating many kinds of soundscapes.
