Novation releases 1,000 artist presets for Peak and Summit synths

To celebrate the debut of Summit, Novation is releasing 1,000 artist presets for the new synth and its sibling, Peak. The preset catalogue is stacked with free patches crafted by the likes of Legowelt, Craig Williams, Emily Sprague, Shawn Rudiman, Hinako Omori and more.

Ultimately, the 1,000 artist presets comprise a vast and diverse library of basses, leads, pads, arps, FX and more that showcases the synth itself, as well as the skill and talent of some incredible sound designers – and they’re free.

At the same time, Novation have completely redesigned the Components application from the ground up, so that you can really take advantage of the librarian and the variety of presets offered by all of the inspiring artists.

The new Components browser puts the Bank Editor and content side by side and enables content to be dragged directly into the Bank Editor patch list. Presets can also be filtered in the browser, and you now have the option of showing the Novation and User banks together. Mandatory login is no longer a requirement, either, as you can now use site-wide features without logging in (although you do still need to make an account and log in to store user content in the cloud).

The 1,000 presets will be progressively released in weekly batches between the end of July and the end of October.
