I think if the Mininova had come with the Morodernova presets it would have sold 3 times as many as it has.
I think the presets for both the Mininova and the Ultranova were the worst case of factory presets sounding horrible and not showing what can be done with a synth ever.
Don't get me wrong I love the engine. I own both.
I LOVE it.
But the only factory sound I've ever used in a recording is "Night Drive Pad" on the Ultranova. I have deleted hundreds of factory patches to make room for my own.
I love Novation stuff but you guys have to be more discriminating about what patches you send it out the door with.
I don't know if the guys that came up with those patches are your friends, or if this reflects some tiny subgenre of electronic music or whatever but please don't repeat this mistake.
I sing the praises of this engine in social media almost every day but its a hard sell to people that have only heard the presets.
