 I was looking for a vocoder and got insterested in Novation Mininova synthesizer since it has a nice vocoder built in. I had a brief testing session with Novation Mininova synthesizer. Here are my initial findings. I was looking for a vocoder and got insterested in Novation Mininova synthesizer since it has a nice vocoder built in.

-Novation Mininova feels toyish. The sounds are strongly biased towards ​dance music. The sounds appear to have no soul: the sounds are not brilliant ​and there is not much in the sounds that make then unique. I bet that there are at least 20 synths in the market that will sound like this. +I have to say that Novation Mininova feels toyish. The sounds are strongly biased towards ​EDM. The sounds are lacking depth and soul. There is not much in the sounds that would make then unique. I bet that there are at least twenty ​synths in the market that could sound exactly ​like this.
