Get Endless Options with the Novation Summit 61-Key 16-Voice Polyphonic Synthesizer

Built on the innovative foundations of Novation's critically acclaimed Peak, Summit is a three-oscillator-per-voice, 16-voice keyboard synth aimed at the professional or semi-professional musician seeking an inspiring, empowering instrument for use both live and in the studio. In fact, Summit effectively puts the power of two Peaks at your fingertips, enabling two completely independent patches to be split or layered across the keyboard, or switched between on the fly. It also expands on Peaks layout, with many hidden controls and functions made accessible on the front panel FM routing, LFOs 3 and 4, all arpeggiator parameters, and more plus the addition of pitch and mod wheels. Summit also features numerous new filter options, and an audio input for processing external sources with its reverb, chorus, and delay effects.


  • The acclaimed Peak architecture taken to the next level, with 16 voices, expanded front panel controls, new filter options, a five-octave keyboard, and more.
  • Multitimbral engine for splitting, stacking, and switching between two simultaneous patches.
  • Digital FPGA-generated New Oxford Oscillators for analog-style, wavetable, and FM synthesis.
  • Dual analog filters, analog VCAs, and three stages of analog distortion per voice.
  • Process each part or an external audio signal with reverb, chorus, and delay effects, and create riffs and melodic lines with a variety of arp modes, adjustable gate time, and preset patterns.
  • Firmware v 2.0 brings in essential improvements and a multitude of features across stereo controls, modulation, unpredictability, and effects, that give you powerful tools to shape your sound
