Novation Competition – win your choice of synth!

Novation Competition – win your choice of synth!

We love competitions. Especially ones that involve: 1. making music and 2. winning synths. So, you can imagine our delight at seeing this Novation competition!

 Novation Competition - win a Bass Station II, UltraNova or Mininova

A history of sound…

Bass Station, Supernova, Drum Station, A-Station, X-Station… these names may very well be familiar to you. Anyway, plenty of great sounds are contained within, from screaming 303-like basses to warm, evolving pads.

If you’re not familiar with these names, haste ye to YouTube and give them a listen. Before you rush off though, you might want to take a look at the short documentary about Novation’s history. It’s quite an interesting watch…

Back to the competition though…

Make a tune. Before the 4th March. There you go. Done. Well, there’s perhaps a bit more to it.

Download the Novation sample pack from the competition site, and take those hundreds of megabytes of sounds from some classic Novation synths – hits and loops – and sample, twist, glitch, tweak, process and arrange to your heart’s content until you come up with the sound of the history of Novation.

Get it uploaded to Soundcloud or YouTube and enter via the online form.

Novation and their panel of judges – Paul Hartnoll, Liam Howe, Eats Everything and Timo Maas – will pick their favourite three, and the winners will get their choice of a Bass Station II, Mininova or UltraNova to add to their studio!

Not sure which you want? Not to worry, we’ve got them all out on display, so you can find the synth that suits you best.

Well, on you go then and have fun!
