  • Novation Ultranova Analog-Modeling Synthesizer

    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. 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.

    • Three oscillators, noise and ring modulation for making your sounds as rich as possible.
    • Classic waveforms and cutting edge wavetables for creating classic and unique new sounds.
    • Two routable multi-mode filters for flexible sound sculpting.
    • 6 Envelopes, 3 LFOs and 20 slot modulation matrix for almostunlimited programmingcapabilities.
    • 18-voice polyphony for playing complex synth lines and chords.

    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.

    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. LA-based electronic musician Thavius Beck performs live with Novation UltraNova, Launchpad and Ableton Live, and talks us through how his set up lets him easily build up song ideas and experiment live, without ever pressing stop.

    FAQ

    When will I get my refund?

    Once your return is received by us, your refund will typically be processed within 10-15 business days. It typically takes a few business days for all credit card refunds to be processed and reflected on your statement. This means it will take a few extra days for your refund to show in your account after your return is processed. Store credit refunds will be given in the form of a e-gift card which will be available for immediate use after it is emailed to you. Please note: All actual shipping fees paid by Prymaxe will be deducted from your refund. This includes orders that qualified for free or subsidized shipping. Return shipping must be paid by the buyer. If you received a defective or incorrect item, please see the next question.  

    What if I receive a defective or incorrect item?

    If a product is defective upon arrival, or the wrong item was received, all the shipping fees will be covered by us and we will give you a store-credit refund on the original order. For defective items, Prymaxe reserves the right to refuse the return if we determine the reason for the unit failing was not covered under the warranty (i.e., if the item was damaged due to user fault or error). If you feel your item was damaged in shipping, please take plenty of pictures of the damaged box and item and immediately contact us so we can open a claim with the shipping company.

    Please be very diligent with testing your defective item. Be sure to try other guitars, power supplies, cables, and amps. We also request that you take a video of the item not working. If we receive your item, test it, and find it to be working, we will give you a refund minus the cost of shipping both ways.

     

    When must I ship my return?

    Your return must be received by us within 45 days of the original purchase date for store credit, or postmarked by 14 days for a refund to the original purchase method (PayPal, credit card, etc). This means you must ship your return with enough time for us to receive the package within the deadline. If it does not arrive within 45 days, we will refuse the package. If you feel you sent the package within a reasonable time frame, but it arrived late due to the shipping company’s error, please immediately contact us to make an appeal before we refuse the package.

    What if I pre-ordered an item?

    If a pre-ordered item arrives outside of the 45 day window from when you ordered it, you will have 7 days from the arrival date to send it back for store credit.

    Why was my package refused?

    There are a number of reasons your package could be refused by us, including:

    • It was a new/demo item received outside of the 45-day window
    • It was a clearance, accessory, or other non-returnable item
    • The package is missing items that were included in the original shipment
    • The item shows signs of wear
    • The original product box was damaged or written on/the item was packaged in a separate shipping box
