Win your choice of Novation synth and MIDI controller

Christmas is almost upon us, and we’re getting the festive party started with our massive Christmas Giveaway competition, the three lucky winners of which will each walk away with their choice of Novation MIDI controller and synth. Get your entry in today and you could be one of them.

The Novation Controller range comprises the Impulse,Launchkey, Launchpad and Launch Control series.

Available in 25-, 49- and 61-key versions, Impulse is an ultra-responsive USB MIDI keyboard featuring piano-style keys, and bristling with assignable controllers and pads. Launchkey (also 25, 49 or 61 keys) is also a USB controller keyboard, but with synth-style keys and automatic parameter mapping in Ableton Live; while Launchkey gives you the same core functionality but in a scaled down 25-key mini-keyboard format.

Launchpad, Launchpad Pro and Launchpad Mini are our 8x8 pad controllers, each offering its own distinct combination of size and features, but all geared up for programming and performing instrument parts in Ableton Live, as well as mixing and plugin control.

Launch Control and Launch Control XL are our two mix controllers for Ableton Live (and any HUI-compatible DAW or MIDI-enabled hardware), the first sporting 16 knobs and eight LED backlit buttons, the second upping those numbers to 24 and 16, and adding eight faders.

In the Noise category, our three Christmas Giveaway winners will take their pick of Circuit, Bass Station II, MiniNova or UltraNova.

Circuit is our inspirational standalone groovebox, combining two Novation polysynths, a four-part drum machine, an intuitive grid-based sequencer and eight rotary controls in a solid, compact box that will have you making electronic music in minutes.

Our legendary pure analogue monosynth, Bass Station II delivers basses and lead lines of incredible warmth and fatness. Boasting three oscillators, two filter types and a two-octave keyboard, it’s the perfect antidote to all those super-clean plugin synths.

Finally, our two polysynths: MiniNova and UltraNova. The flagship UltraNova is a three-oscillator, two-filter analogue-modelling instrument, drawing on classic waveforms and cutting-edge wavetables to create a range of sounds that simply aren’t possible with any other synth in its class. MiniNova, meanwhile, packs 256 killer sounds (and space to save 128 of your own) into a 37-note microsynth, complete with a succinct set of controllers for editing them, eight Animate buttons for endless real-time performance possibilities, an arpeggiator and the amazing VocalTune vocoder.

The competition has now closed but you can sign up here for more competitions like this in the future.
