Sound designer Phil McDonald created the iconic sounds of the Novation 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 of two new soundpacks for the MiniNova and UltraNova, containing sounds from the original Supernova sound banks, by the original sound designer. These 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 now, as part of Novation’s 21st Anniversary celebrations. The second pack will be available later in the year. The download is available here. An instruction video describing how to install the soundpacks is available here — the free MiniNova or UltraNova Librarian applications are required to install these and other soundpacks.
