If you've entered the world of music technology relatively recently, it might be natural to think of Novation
as primarily a "controller company." They certainly do have quite a roster of successful controllers: the ReMote SL then SL Mk. II, Impulse
, and Launchpad / Launchkey series. However, their roots in synthesizer design go very deep, mainly in the form of designer Chris Huggett, whose credits include the Electronic Dream Plant Wasp and Oxford OSCar analog synths.
In this just-released video, Novation sheds light on its history, the impetus behind certain milestone products, and more--all in a way that's refreshingly non-marketing-hypey for a video of this kind. We found it very informative and hope you do as well.
