Novation Peak - Day One

Published on Apr 2, 2018 Tim Shoebridge

Audio demo comes in at 1:58.

"Here is my Day-One video of the Novation Peak. It's been a lot of fun to write and record this track, and it's refreshing to have the luxury of saving patches!

Note that I am playing on a Behringer DeepMind keyboard but it is purely being used as a controller keyboard for this track, all synth sounds are coming from the Peak.

You can find the track on Soundcloud here:"


Novation Peak - Day 1 Breakdown

Published on Apr 20, 2018

"Here's my follow-up video to the one I did last on the Novation Peak. It is basically a 30 minute breakdown of the song I performed in that previous video with a look at the Cubase project, my approach to writing the song, and the Peak patches I created for it.

Apology to All: I was plagued by technical issues when making this latest video, nothing to do with the Peak at all, but one of my cameras packed up, a microphone cut out, and on top of that I forgot to check some audio levels going into my recorder which ended up being an unusable recording. So I had to mix and match video footage from two different takes as well as rely solely on the microphone I'm using for the voice-over to play you the output from both Cubase and the synth. Hopefully the poor audio and the video sync issues won't spoil the video for you too much :("


Novation Peak - Day Two

Published on Apr 29, 2018 Tim Shoebridge

"Here (finally!) is my Day Two video for the fabulous Novation Peak 8-Voice Polyphonic Synthesizer. This has been a few weeks in the making, but I had in mind from the start an evolving longer-length soundtrack and that required a lot more time to put together the video.

The soundtrack itself goes on a kind of journey, it evolves through different phases but ultimately ends up where it started. This is very much how I see humanity evolving and that was the inspiration for the images that I chose for the video.

There is no synth-related information in this video, it is all about the sound and images, I will put together a "breakdown" video to go through my sound and composition choices next time.

BTW You can listen to the soundtrack on soundcloud here:

Thanks very much for watching."
