Novation Release Free Supernova SoundPack

Novation have released the Supernova SoundPack for both UltraNova and MiniNova, this impressive looking package features original sounds sampled from the classic stalwart virtual analogue synth which was first released back in 1998. Here is the official press release regarding the new SoundPack version

Novation’s groundbreaking Supernova set the standard for virtual analogue synthesisers when it was released in 1998. With its comprehensive modelling of traditional analogue subtractive synthesis, uniquely powerful multi-effects engine and expressive filter, the award-winning rack-mount Supernova and its successor, Supernova II, were the most powerful synths of their time – class leaders, still revered today. 

Sound designer Phil McDonald created the iconic sounds of the Supernova that changed the sound of dance music at the turn of the Millennium, powering classics by Orbital, ATB, Jean Michel Jarre and A Guy Called Gerald, plus many more. Now, with the massive revival of interest in the sounds and music of the period, Novation is proud to announce the release oftwo new SoundPacks for the MiniNova and UltraNova, containing sounds from the original Supernova sound banks, by the original sound designer.

The Supernova SoundPacks give you the original classic sounds of the turn of the century – and they’re absolutely free.

The first of the two SoundPacks, with 64 sounds, is available to download now at, as part of Novation’s 21st Anniversary celebrations, with the second pack available later in the year.

As the press release says this new pack is absolutely FREE! We’re looking forward to having a play and re-capturing those retro 90’s sounds!
