Novation's flagship two-part 16-voice 61-key polyphonic synthesiser
digital New Oxford Oscillators offer subtractive, FM and wavetable
synthesis, and feed into genuine analogue dual filters, distortion and
VCAs. The multitimbral engine enables merging and combining of two
complete and independent patches, while up to 16 simultaneous voices
deliver enough harmonic depth for even the richest of pads.
The best sounding synthesiser Novation has ever made
doubles the power of Peak’s digital New Oxford Oscillators up to 16
voices and two parts, and adds a wealth of new features and a
premium-quality five-octave keyboard. A synth much greater than the sum
of its parts, it gives the serious producer or performer everything they
need to design and play stunning basses, leads, arps, pads, effects and
Totally tactile sound design
Peak’s architecture and workflow to new heights, with a swathe of extra
front panel controls for hands-on wrangling of FM, effects, LFOs and
more; dual filters with six LP/HP/BP combinations; audio input for
processing external sources with the onboard effects; and auxiliary
Analogue where it matters
stereo analogue signal path comprises dual analogue multimode filters,
analogue VCAs and three stages of analogue distortion – pre- and
post-filter, and post-VCA. With roots in the legendary OSCar, via Bass
Station II, Summit’s analogue credentials are truly impressive.
Two Peaks in one synth - and then some:
16-voice, multitimbral engine combines two simultaneous patches. Split
or stack them for keyboard-divided or layered sounds, or switch the
entire synth between two separate and independently controlled setups,
perhaps using one as an effects processor for an external input source.
Also, Summit can use all your Peak patches

Digital New Oxford
Oscillators are capable of subtractive, FM and wavetable synthesis.
Waveforms are generated directly on the FPGA (Field Programmable Gate
Array) chip, using 24MHz bitstream processing; and adjustable drift and
divergence emulate the inherent and often desirable instability of
True analogue filters and distortion
New Oxford Oscillators output to true analogue filters, with origins in
the classic OSCar synth, and three stages of analogue distortion give
you ample saturation options.
dual filter is switchable between six paired combinations of low-pass,
high-pass and band-pass modes at 12dB/octave, or any single mode at
24dB/octave, for a broad range of sonic possibilities.
Hands-on sound design
with modulation sources for deep sound design – LFOs, envelopes,
Animate buttons and more. Extended controls see FM parameters, envelope
loop switches and LFOs 3/4 moved from Peak’s menu system to the front
panel, for easy programming and tweaking.

reverb, chorus and delay effects are hosted on the FPGA. They’re also
controlled directly from the front panel, and available as modulation
targets in the dedicated FX Mod Matrix.
