Analog Where it Matters. Digital Where it Counts
Peak's design consultant was none other than Chris Huggett, the man behind Bass Station, Supernova, OSCar and many more legendary synths. Peak has its origin in the Bass Station II analog monosynth, and Peak's oscillators sound completely analog by being high-quality NCOs (Numerically-Controlled Oscillators), but gain the flexibility of the digital domain with 17 digital wavetables.

Build and Create Sounds from Scratch
Broaden out your electronic music, draw in unique influences, and take artistic risks. The modulation system puts the most frequently used assignments right at your fingertips in the main controls. More elaborate movements and secondary 'via' assignments are made just a few menu buttons presses away.

Connect to Just About Anything
You can plug Peak into your Mac or PC via USB and start playing. It also has MIDI I/O on five-pin DIN ports, so you can connect your other MIDI gear. It can also connect to modular systems via a CV modulation input.

The Synth
The synth has a resonant multi-mode analogue filter for each voice, and three distortion points for each voice – pre-filter, post-filter and global – in an analogue signal chain. Peak is capable of receiving polyphonic aftertouch, which puts expression right at your fingertips. Reverb, delay, and chorus effects are at one's disposal, and there is also an on-board arpeggiator.

The Mods
The modulation system puts a 16-slot modulation matrix and 16 direct assignments in the main controls, cleverly arranged for intuitive patch design and sound editing. There are three ADSR envelopes and two LFOs for each voice, and more elaborate movements and secondary 'via' assignments are made just a few menu buttons presses away. In addition, two animate buttons give live performers instant one-touch transformation of patches.

Connectivity
Peak connects to modular systems via a CV modulation input, and has MIDI I/O on five-pin DIN ports, so another MIDI gear can be connected. Via USB, Peak can be plugged into Mac or PC, where unlimited patches can be kept using the Components software.

Learn with Melodics
Free keys and pad drumming lessons with Melodics makes you get the most out of your controller straight out of the box.

Wavetables
Massively increasing the range of Peak's sonic palette, 43 wavetables have been added to the oscillator Wave menus.

Additional Modulators
Peak 1.2 adds two more freely assignable, non-voice-specific LFOs (bringing the total to four) to the Mod Matrix and FX Matrix. Pitch-Bend is now also available as a modulation source, with Up (BendWhl+) and Down (BendWhl-) assignable as separate signals if required.

Mod Matrix Design
Workflow in the Mod Matrix is greatly accelerated with Peak 1.2, as sources and destinations are presented on the same page – no more toggling between them to make and edit assignments. And, as a knock-on benefit, the Page button now enables quick access to all 16 modulation slots.

FX Mod Matrix
Peak 1.2 lets you route non-voice-specific modulation sources to Peak's FX parameters in the four-slot FX Mod Matrix. Now you can expand and contract a reverb with a rhythmic LFO, or automate delay time changes using an envelope and so much more.

Envelope Features
And, speaking of envelopes, Peak 1.2's ADSRs see the addition of a Hold stage (up to 500ms) and the ability to loop between the Attack and Decay stages. For many, this game-changing improvement alone will be reason enough to upgrade.

Initialize Manual Mode
Peak 1.2 gives you the option of maintaining the current positions of all knobs and sliders when the initialize button is pressed, rather than resetting their parameters to defaults – ideal for getting instantly hands-on with patches, and creating random ones from scratch.

Microtuning
Peak 1.2 also adds support for microtuning. 16 Tuning Tables can be edited and saved for recall within any patch, with Scala tables imported via Components and automatic note selection making MIDI note-to-pitch assignment a snap.

State-of-the-Art Presets
Available for free in Components, a sound-bank by GForce Software (128 presets) and a sound-pack by Patricia Wolf (50 presets) adds a 178 stunning sounds to your patch library, showcasing the features of Firmware 1.2, as well as the sonic power and versatility of Peak in general.
