Launchkey Mini - Interactive Video
We really wanted to play with the 'Make Music Anywhere' concept of our Launchkey Mini, so we tried something a little different with one of our performance videos. Pressing any of the buttons at the top of the video will continue the performance in the selected location through some YouTube wizardry...

Supernova Soundpack Volume 2
The second instalment of classic Supernova patches is now available for free download. Original sound designer Phill Macdonald has put together another 64 sounds to turn your UltraNova or MiniNova into the classic Novation virtual analogue monster. Grab it here: http://bit.ly/NovaSoundpacks
MiniNova jam with Hot Sugar
Hot Sugar's production techniques are a little unconventional in that he uses found sounds as the sonic source for most of the elements in his tracks. It was because of this that we decided to ask Hot Sugar to dig into the MinNova's sound-processing and synthesis capabilities to see what it can do.
Launchkey + Launchpad App
We've just released three new soundpacks for the Launchpad app featured in the video above.
Grab them here: http://bit.ly/LP-App
Here's a teaser of the 'Dirty Electro House' pack!
Pillowtalk Live Setup
PillowTalk utilize the Novation Impulse 61 controller, MiniNova and UltraNova to recreate live the myriad parts arranged in their studio, with just three people. We caught up with them to find out more about their keys of choice.
Bass Station II First Listen
The much-anticipated Bass Station II can now be heard for the first time. Bass Station II brings the best elements of the classic Bass Station into a brand new design with re-worked modulation, effects, filters and more; like the original, but a much bigger sound. Don't take our word though - hear it for yourself!
In the studio with Teddy Riley
Novation spent a day with the legendary Blackstreet, Guy and Michael Jackson producer, Teddy Riley. He showed us around Future Recording Studios 2 and played us a brand new version of Guy's 1988 hit 'Teddy's Jam' on the MiniNova vocoder!
