Inside: Novation’s Innovative Instrument Laboratory

We went to the UK workshop that's been producing innovative synths and controllers since the '90s rave boom.

British electronic instrument company Novation needs no introduction.

Since the height of the UK rave craze in the early ’90s, the name Novation has become synonymous with sophisticated controllers for studios and live performance—such as the Launchpad and SL Series—as well as complex synths like the Peak.

On a recent visit to the UK, we went inside Novation HQ to see how the company continues to create innovative instruments that build upon the work of legendary synth designer Chris Huggett. With a whole range of new synths and controllers being developed, that pioneering spirit continues to burn bright at Novation.
