MoroderNova – signature edition version of the MiniNova synthesizer in collaboration with Giorgio Moroder

Novation-MoroderNova-700x334

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.

MoroderNova features

  • 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.

Chris Calcutt used nothing but hardware to generate all these sounds and perform this tune. How? Click here to replicate his setup: http://www.novationmusic.com/project-…

Here’s a hint: he used an Elektron Octatrack to control his Novation Bass Station II and Novation UtraNova. He also used his Novation Launch Control XL to control the volumes of all the Octatrack’s audio tracks.
