Founded in 1992, Novation is often credited for creating the first dedicated MIDI controller: the MM10. The popular Bass Station and Drum Station analogue synths followed this. They were then joined by their first technical director, Chris Huggett, who had worked on the initial products in his spare time: his first big project at Novation was the Supernova, which rapidly became a go-to synthesizer for artists of the time. Success continued with the Nova and SuperNova II. Novation became part of the Focusrite family in August 2004.
With the increasing importance of software in the synthesiser field, Novation expanded its range of keyboard controllers and other innovative control surfaces for musicians and producer/performers, fully integrated with powerful software to form the perfect range of gear to play, create and perform music.
Novation gear is designed by musicians and producers who use the gear they design every day. That’s why bedroom producers and A-list artists alike use our kit: it’s been designed by and for musicians. And we’re always looking for fresh ideas – so if you have something in mind, get in touch.
From studio to stage, Novation frees you to make your music, your way – like never before.
