via PBARAKA:

In this video I will show you globally the features and go thru some of its sounds…The Novation UltraNova is a analogue-modelling synthesizer with a powerful effects processor. It is a single-part synth with the latest technology. It has wavetable synthesis, powerful filters, a software editor and a revolutionary new touch-sense performance mode. It’s Also a Soundcard!

I love the sound of this synth, great VST editor pluging and library, love the soundcard feature all the inputs and outputs. Looks cool and fun bleu led wheel lights… 300 onboard sounds, with good sound search engine, upcoming artist soundpacks, Animate — Touch-sense performance knobs and great aftertouch keybed. I would had liked a dedicated Tempo knob and found the vocoder to be average….and yes there is a Unboxing video a then end of the review.
