Featureful and solid poly synth
dromer, 04.02.2020
Having been in the market for a high-end poly synth for a while I was very excited when the Summit was initially announced.

For me it ticked all the boxes of what I was looking for: many-voice polyphonic, extensive editing capabilities with plenty of physical controls, interesting modern features, integrated effects, and good midi implementation.

The Summit fulfills all of these for me. The machine has a very solid build with firm and flexible controls when needed. The midi implementation is wonderful and updating the firmware (and managing the patches) works perfectly with the Components website. No fancy drivers or platform-dependent software installs necessary! (I use Linux which is always an issue with these things)

The internal engine is absolutely amazing. Essentially you get 4 different synths: a 16 voice poly, 2 independent 8 voice poly's, and one multi-timbral 8 voice poly. The expanded filter design also allows for more sound design options than the original peak and the onboard effects are very good. I'm looking forward to future updates as I assume the FPGA will allow for future expansions of the engine and effects.

In conclusion I think this will be a permanent addition to the studio!

Awesome!
Astronautilus, 22.09.2020
At first I couldn’t decide between the Nord Wave 2, the Korg Prophesy and the Summit. I went for the Summit and have no regrets… it’s an awesome machine.

16 voices, three (Oxford) oscillators per voice, each with the usual waveforms plus a choice of wavetables, as well as shape control, oscillator sync and FM. It has full anologue filters, 3 modulation envelopes, excellent FX, and a modulation matrix that means it approaches the complex voice architecture of the big modulars. But, and here’s the thing… the parameters that are assigned to knobs are very well chosen, and so it’s a rational and intuitive process to create (or modify) voices. When needed, the next layer of functionality is available through the usual menus. A useful and well configured arpeggiator too.

Nice but not for me
Cinetracks, 21.10.2020
Pros :
- Great sounding synth for pads and 80ties sounds.
- Very easy to edit, everytime I switched it on, I made some new sounds with it
- Very good chorus and reverb effects, delay is ok.
- Excellent support from Novation

But this is why I sent it back, cons :

- sound of the filter is neutral, it lacks a bit of character
- when using resonance it's easy to get internal clipping
- the dual sounds are more difficult to manage
- still some menu diving for some features
- the oscillator sync sounds too weak for my taste

Since I already have a lot of synths, I guess I was looking more for a synth that has a prominent character, like the Prophet 6 or OB6.
