Novation Announces New Peak Firmware Update With 43 New Wavetables
Peak's first major update arrives on December 19.
Novation has announced the first major update to its Peak synthesizer.
Peak’s firmware 1.2 update adds a number of the most requested features from Peak users, including a huge increase to Peak’s sonic palette with 43 new wavetables; two new freely assignable, non-voice-specific LFOs (bringing the total to four); a Mod Matrix update, with sources and destinations presented on the same page; a four-slot FX Mod Matrix, which lets you route non-voice-specific modulation sources to Peak’s FX parameters; new envelope features, including the addition of a Hold stage (up to 500ms) and the ability to loop between the Attack and Decay stages; the ability to maintain the current positions of all knobs and sliders when the Initialize button is pressed, rather than resetting their parameters to defaults; support for microtuning, allowing 16 Tuning Tables to be edited and saved for recall; and new presets and soundpacks from Patricia Wolf and GForce Software.
The new update is officially available to the public on December 19 .
