Novation's flagship synth, Peak, sounds fantastic. But what else could you expect from an instrument designed by none others than Chris Hugget, the brains behind classic synths such as the OSCar, WASP, Supernova and Bass Station? In this course, synth expert Rishabh Rajan covers all features of this compact but incredibly powerful desktop synth.
After giving an overview of Peak's user interface, Rishabh literally goes through all the knobs, buttons and faders of this deep synthesizer. You learn how to use Peak's Numerically Controlled Oscillators (NCOs), how to create rich textures by stacking and detuning them, and why the Shape control is not just a wavetable position control. You discover all the modulation options available, and how to use them to create everything from subtle pitch movement to crazy sound mangling effects. Next, Rishabh demystify the smooth resonant multi-mode (and completely analogue) filter section, the great-sounding built-in effects, and flexible arpeggiator. The course ends by explaining how to reverse engineer a complex preset patch in order to understand what is really going on under the hood!
So learn to master Novation's Peak with synth expert Rishabh Rajan, and get the most out of this revolutionary eight-voice polyphonic desktop synthesizer.
A step-by-step walk thru of the Peak, logical and with clear explanations. Very valuable if you are just sitting down with one- I had no idea it did half the things that Rishabh demonstrated. Well done!

Excellent series of videos. Covers every aspect of the Peak. I can't wait to get one. Rishabh's videos are great. Hope he will do a 201 series on how to make great sounding Peak patches.
