Its wonderful
no contact, 19.03.2018
I had to think long and hard, and read alot on the internet, before purchasing this one as there is no way to try it out beforehand where I live.

The reasons why I give it only 5 stars is because it deserves nothing less. I've had to send couple of emails to Novation regarding couple of things, and they always replied within 48 hours with very helpful information.

I had to choose between PEAK and DSI Rev2 due to my budget, and I'm very happy I didn't go for Rev2. The main reason? The VCF and audiorate modulation. Yes, alot of audiorate modulation in a poly synth! The FM is gorgeous, FM-ing the filter for some extra dirt is wonderful, and the FX are almost way too good to run PEAK through anything else. Oh, the ringmode is ace too! Plenty of clang! The oscillators are deep and moving, not sterile under any circumstances. Not that Rev2 isint perfectly good synthesizer too, but having 4 lfos with no delay/fade in/fade out is kind of weird, and I'd rather have 2x full featured lfos than 4x with less options.

The online community around the PEAK is also good and growing too so you won't be alone facing your problems, find the facebook group, alot of friendly people to help you out.

One last thing, i've not ran into any serious bugs yet, and that alone is very valuable as many hardware users should know. If you need a flexible sound designing polysynth with beautiful VCF, give PEAK a change. Seriously, that VCF is amazing.

Overall great, just a couple of downsides
JRMB, 25.02.2018
The Peak works great live and in the studio.
After half a year of touring with it, these are my thoughts:

+ Oscillators sound phat, great filters, great modding capabilities.
+ The effects in spite of being digital, are very high quality. The reverb has a surprising depth.
+ All necessary knobs are within reach. No annoying menus or extra buttons to go through for live tweaking.
+ Emulating vintage synths is easy without the weight, buzz or noise.
+ Good price for an analog polyphonic synth.
+ Feels sturdy and is easily road-ready in a simple case.

- The knobs look slick but are very annoying in a live situation. There's no way of seeing the values of the knobs in a darker environment unless by turning them and watching the values on the display. This is due to their color and their form. Knobs of e.g. the BassStation II are way more handy.
- Somehow all output values are displayed except for the Volume. This is very annoying in the case of very dynamic music.
- I would like to have a little more destinations in the modding section. A lot is possible but e.g. panning, reverb, delay is missing here.
