  1. Glad to see people are screaming in praise about Novations amazing gear! Probably too tired form all the Behringer tease post with 175 comments per.

    1. The reality is that Behringer is very divisive, so people like to argue about it. Other companies aren’t as controversial, so they don’t get people as riled up.

      Most electronic musicians have or know of at least one piece of Novation gear, like the Launchpad or the Circuit, and know that it generally works as advertised.

  2. I get it. Just had to point a finger at it. The Novation Peak is an amazing piece of machinery and most are too busy clucking about vaporware or shoulda-coulda’s.

    1. Agreed, incredible synth. Definitely Novation’s finest hour on top of many fine prior achievements. Many of which have found their way onto my albums over the years.

      I do wish they’d add more mod sources and destinations, though. Particularly delay time as a destination!

  3. I agree, novation is awesome. I picked up the mono circuit for cheap, one of the best purchases I’ve made, no need for a screen, awesome sequencer ( equal to elektron) and it sounds amazing!
