MoroderNova – signature edition version of the MiniNova synthesizer in collaboration with Giorgio Moroder
Novation has introduced the MoroderNova, a signature edition version of the MiniNova synthesizer in collaboration with Giorgio Moroder.
Over an incredible five-decade career, Giorgio Moroder has been nothing less than a beacon of influence in electronic music. Thanks to his pioneering work in the mid-70s with Donna Summer, among others, disco simply wouldn’t sound the same. In the ’80s, his blisteringly modern approach to producing the unforgettable soundtracks to movies including Scarface, Top Gun and Flashdance — using the synthesizer as his main instrument — captivated an entire generation of movie fans. More recently, Moroder has shot back into the popular consciousness, thanks to a universally acclaimed collaboration with Daft Punk in 2013, and his 2015 album Deja Vu, which features Britney Spears, Kylie Minogue and Sia as guest artists.
It’s his fascination with electronic sounds that is at the heart of his collaboration with Novation. Giorgio Moroder is nothing less than a god in the synth world, he’s been responsible with creating some of the most recognisable sounds across numerous genres, and we’re honored to create an instrument bearing his name. The collaboration came about after Giorgio began to use the Novation Mininova, taking it on tour all over the world. With MoroderNova, Novation and Giorgio Moroder have made a piece of synth history. Not only is it Novation’s first signature model, it’s the first and only synth with Giorgio’s name on it, a fact that we’re really proud of. What’s more, there are only 500 of them, each numbered and supplied with a certificate of authenticity.
- Instantly-rare, signature version of the MiniNova which pays homage to Giorgio Moroder.
- Branded with Giorgio’s ‘moustache and shades’ insignia, and with a distinctive silver/black colourway, the unit is a stand-out piece of synth heritage.
- The signature sounds identify some of Giorgio’s most seminal moments in music. From the timbres of his disco classics with bands such as Sparks and Donna Summer, to the incredible sounds of the Top Gun and Scarface soundtracks, and his recent work with Daft Punk, Novation’s sound designers have matched each and every one to the original. With access to these you’ll be able to draw inspiration from the works of one of the most influential producers alive today.
- Limited edition, numbered one of 500 units with certificate of authenticity.

After a memorable collaboration with Daft Punk on 2013’s Random Access Memories, electronic music legend Giorgio Moroder is back, releasing his first album of solo material in over 30 years. Announced today, the album is set to drop in spring 2015 on Sony/RCA and features a new batch of notable collaborators including Britney Spears, Sia, Kylie Minogue, Charli XCX, and more. Alongside the album announcement comes a new video for the track “74 is the New 24,” premiering exclusively on The Creators Project.
The video, directed by Jai Lewis with help from Andromeda Software Development, is a striking digital landscape of beautiful, strange images that demand rewatching. “We wanted to achieve that Giorgio Moroder ‘retro-future’ feel,” explains Lewis, who is also collaborating with Moroder on a 2015 DJ tour. Lewis continues: “His attention to detail is especially sharp and the sheer amount of time dedicated to this production will surely reflect this. I don’t know how this man has the energy to tour, work on an new album, be a family man, and last of all, musical pioneer.” The Creators Project spoke to the man himself, Giorgio Moroder, about his career, creative process, and influence on modern music.

Billboard’s Kerri Mason got to chat with disco legend Giorgio Moroder about last years world-wide smash album from the robotic, helmet wearing French duo.
The track Giorgio by Moroder features on Random Access Memories. Its a collage of the results of a 2 and a half hour chat Moroder had with them that was edited down to a 9.30 pop edit!
“I spoke for about two and a half hours and they said, ‘That’s it,'” Moroder recalls. When he asked what they’d do with it, they answered, “We cannot tell you.”
